What is Hypothyroidism?

Thyroid disease is the most common endocrine disorder, especially in women. Most of the hypothyroid patients have an underactive thyroid gland and doesn't produce the required thyroid hormone. Thus the metabolism slows down and you start gaining weight, even when you food intake is healthy and your physical activity level is normal.

Hypothyroidism and Weight loss

Weight loss is possible once correct dose of thyroxin has been prescribed and the condition is properly controlled. Through sensible eating and an increase in physical activity and exercise you can easily lose weight.

A Word of Caution

As the treatment of thyroid takes up to nine months to give result and improve your thyroid condition, one should not expect immediate results.

Stick to your daily calorie allowance and exercise daily, there is no reason why you shouldn't lose weight.

What is Cushing’s syndrome?

The disorder occurs due to prolonged usage of the hormone cortisol. People who suffer from this disorder gain weight in the upper body. The face is round and there is fat accumulation around the neck. The limbs are comparatively slender. The skin of these patients becomes fragile, gets bruised easily and does not heal properly. The bones also become weak and painful.

A few other symptoms of the disorder include:

  • Irritability, anxiety or depression
  • Severe fatigue
  • High blood glucose level
  • High blood pressure
  • Increase thirst
  • Increase in urination
  • Weak muscles
  • A fatty hump between the shoulders

Eliminating Endocrine Problems

Medication is available to combat each type of endocrine problem. Consult a good endocrinologist to help you get out of the endocrine problem. Do not stop exercising and observing dietary guidelines.
