Are women more prone to thyroid issues?

Hello reader,

Did you know?

One in eight women will develop a thyroid disorder during her lifetime.

Women are also five to eight times more likely than men to have thyroid problems. The majority of women develop thyroid issues in their thirties.

The probable reason for the prevalence of thyroid disorders in women could be an interplay between thyroid hormones and the hormones that fluctuate during the menstrual cycle.

Women with thyroid issues have to face a lot of health concerns. They may have irregular menstrual cycles and difficulty in conception. Thyroid disorders in girls alter the onset of puberty.

Abnormal thyroid levels can also alter the nature and duration of menstrual flow.

Altered levels of thyroid during pregnancy can lead to severe morning sickness, while hypothyroidism increases the risk of premature labour, miscarriage and other serious complications.

Thyroid disorders can also increase the chances of early menopause further affecting the overall health and quality of life in women.

Hence, women need to closely observe any relevant symptom and see a physician by the earliest to prevent clinical progression of the condition.
