Many people will find themselves in the unfortunate situation of feeling drained and without energy. First lions, and then suddenly in total exhaustion, like a dead battery. Furthermore, it can happen to have particularly annoying sleep disorders. On the one hand, the desire to sleep 24 hours a day, on the other, total insomnia. This obviously causes loss of concentration, difficulty in breathing as well as spending days completely ruined. You feel swollen, with sudden changes in temperature as if you were feverish, especially with sensations of cold and discomfort. To all this are added anxiety, depression, acne, dry skin.
The icing on this unpleasant cake is something everyone dreads and hates: unwanted weight gain. No matter how many exercises and how much physical activity you do, no matter your diet: your weight seems totally out of control. Well, all these symptoms could be unsuspected signs of a fairly rare autoimmune disease, but very difficult to cure. This is Hashimoto’s disease, also known as Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.
Loss of concentration, difficulty in breathing and difficulty sleeping at night would be the indicators of this unsuspected cause
It is a chronic and autoimmune disease. It is usually considered a rarer variant of normal thyroiditis. The main symptom to recognize it is the increase in volume of the goiter, in the neck. In other forms of thyroid disease this particular manifestation, in fact, is not present. It develops as a hypothyroidism which causes various problems to the affected person. As mentioned, in addition to the swelling of the neck, exhaustion that is disproportionate to daily activities is the main way in which this disease manifests itself. Another typical symptom is the voice becoming more hoarse. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is caused by a defect in the immune system, which begins to produce antibodies against the thyroid itself, no longer recognizing it as an integral part of the body.
It is not a hereditary disease, rather it should be considered a form of family predisposition, but the mechanics of this type of family imprint are still not well known. At the moment, there are no definitive cures, but once the disease is recognized, the thyroid is treated with a special hormone therapy that only the doctor can decide and administer in the correct doses. Through this therapy, usually, the patient’s quality of life returns to perfectly normal without particular contraindications. It is therefore important to undergo the correct tests if your doctor believes that there is a need. In these cases, in fact, there is no doubt that a specialist consultation is at least recommended if not appropriate.
That’s why people with hypothyroidism shouldn’t eat soy and grains
