How To Detect Hyperthyroidism?
I want to ask, in the past few months my weight has decreased and my body looks thinner, especially in the chest and shoulder blades. Your appetite also decreases, sometimes you only eat once or twice a day, because when I want to eat at night I don’t want to because I feel nauseous. In addition, I also get tired easily, even though I am a very busy person (students in semester 8 are doing their thesis and compiling a lot of events), so that it disrupts my activities as a whole. Lately, I just feel overwhelmed when I’m more intolerant of heat. Though I was not a person who easily complained about heat, but now I am not very strong with heat. pdhl temperature in bandung is now always between 24-27 C. Do I suffer from hyperthyroidism? because all the symptoms that I read on the HealthReplies.com page lead to that. headaches and dizziness are also often felt, and most often, I often feel like I will fall or the ground sways when there is nothing. please explain, and am I better to see what doctor? thank you
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
Hyperthyroidism, or hyperactivity of the thyroid gland, is indeed one of the most common triggers for weight loss that is quite drastic, easily fatigued, and increased sensitivity to heat, as you experience it. However, not only that, there are still many other conditions that can also trigger your complaints, such as
Viral or bacterial infections Dyspepsia (increased gastric acid) Anemia (low blood hemoglobin) Hypoglycemia (low blood sugar) Hypotension (low blood pressure) Mental disorders, such as depression, psychosomatic disorders, excessive anxiety disorders Chronic diseases, such as rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, malignancy , metabolic syndrome Unhealthy lifestyles, etc. People with hyperthyroidism, in addition to experiencing complaints as you experience, often will also experience diarrhea, excessive sweating, prolonged fever, palpitations, anxiety, insomnia, insomnia, tremors, and many more other complaints. This condition can arise due to various factors, including due to inflammation (thyroiditis), autoimmune disorders (Grave's disease), pregnancy, drug side effects, tumors (nodules or cancer), disorders of the pituitary gland or hypothalamus, and so on.
The diagnosis of hyperthyroidism or a variety of other possible diseases as we have mentioned above can be made through a direct doctor's examination. In some cases, some supporting tests are also needed, for example laboratory, x-ray, ultrasound, CT scan, and so on. Therefore, in order to get the right treatment, you better check yourself directly to the doctor or a specialist in the closest internal medicine huh ..
The following steps can we recommend that your complaint improve:
Rest regularly 6 to 8 hours a day, don't stay up late Don't consume excessive caffeinated drinks, stay away from alcohol Don't smoke Regular exercise every 1-2 days Eat disciplined 3 to 5 times a day (3 large meals, interspersed with 1-2 healthy snacks) , vary your diet Relax your mind, don't be sad, anxious, stressed, or overly panicked. Always live a healthy lifestyle. Do not carelessly take medicine without doctor's advice. If you want to change your posture, so as not to lose balance, do it slowly and be careful Hope it helps, huh?
