Thyroid disease is a medical condition that affects the function of the thyroid gland. It is the endocrine organ which is found at the front of the neck that produces the thyroid hormone. Hypothyroidism is a condition that occurs when the thyroid gland doesn’t produce enough thyroid hormones. There are many glands in our body, but the thyroid gland is the small, butterfly-shaped organ at the base of our neck that makes hormones that regulates our metabolism which affects how our body uses energy. In adults, the major symptoms of the thyroid are Weight gain, Fatigue, Sensitivity to cold temperatures, Depression, Dry skin, Thinning hair, Heavy menstrual periods (in women), Trouble sleeping, Difficulty concentrating, Pain or swelling of the joints, Constipation, High cholesterol levels, Muscle weakness
Apart from all these things, there are many Thyroid Myths which are very common among people these days. Here we are giving the list of all the myths along with the true facts.

MYTH: People with Hypothyroidism Can Never Lose Weight
FACT- People suffering from hypothyroidism will often have difficulty losing weight because even though the appetite may be dulled, their sluggish thyroid will slow the rate at which they burn calories. But this is not exactly the truth. Normalizing thyroid levels with natural thyroid replacement along with the right dietary choices and exercise will help in losing weight.

Myth: If you have a thyroid problem, you’ll definitely know it
Fact: This is absolutely not true because thyroid-related symptoms can be present in many different medical conditions. Common symptoms include extreme fatigue, brain fog, anxiety, heart palpitations, dry skin, and high blood pressure. Sometimes thyroid disorders are often misdiagnosed in women in particular because other female-specific, hormone-related conditions can have similar symptoms, including premenstrual dysphoric disorder, menopause. Being overweight can also be a symptom.

Myth: Consuming extra iodine will improve your thyroid health
Fact: It is true that Thyroid needs iodine to function properly but taking supplements or eating a ton of iodine could harm the thyroid. Excess iodine can trigger thyroid dysfunction which can be very harmful to health and can cause many dangerous health issues.

Myth: Only older women can develop thyroid problems
Fact: This is not exactly true thyroid disease can affect both men and women at any age. However, women do have a higher chance of developing a thyroid than men. Genetics and environmental factors are the reasons for thyroid development. So it is proven that it can present at any age, but it has a predilection for women.
