Thyroid vs Mood

The thyroid produces, stores, and transfers hormones into the bloodstream, which is like a tiny, butterfly-shaped gland located in the neck. The hormones produced and used up for many essential body functions such as almost all of the metabolic processes in your body, regulating the rate at which humans burn calories, and deciding how fast the heartbeats.

  • In addition, thyroid disorder is synonymous with signs and symptoms such as:
  1. Gain or Loss of Weight
  2. Increased heat or cold temperature sensitivity
  3. Abnormal bowel movement
  4. Irregularities in Menstruation

These symptoms can affect your mood

  • Hypothyroidism develops when enough hormones are not released by the thyroid.
    And it causes:
  1. Mild to serious tiredness or fatigue
  2. Depression
  • Hyperthyroidism develops when so many hormones are released by an overactive thyroid.
    And it causes:
  1. Uncommon nervousness
  2. Restlessness
  3. Anxiety
  4. Irritableness

Appropriate treatment necessary to balance the hormonal level changes improves both emotional and physical causes caused by thyroid imbalance.
