Hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism can occur due to its dysfunction. Hyperthyroidism occurs when the thyroid hormones flow excessively into the blood. Among the causes of this pathology we find toxic adenoma, goiter and Graves' disease. Among the most common symptoms we find hyperactivity, depression, weight loss, weakening and yellowed skin. This pathology can be prevented through the use of drugs, with iodine-based therapies or directly with surgery. Hypothyroidism is much more frequent than hyperthyroidism. In this case it manifests itself with a thyroid tired of the slow functioning of the metabolism. Given the low iodine deficiency, the thyroid tends to enlarge forming the goiter. In this case the symptoms manifest themselves with a tendency to gain weight, hair falling out, tiredness in the morning, memory problems, dry skin and memory problems.
