Thyroid problems can lead to organ failure and death. It is reported by 24 with reference to the general practitioner Alexei Khukharev.
He noted that among the diseases of the thyroid gland include hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. The first ailment is associated with a decrease in organ function due to a lack of hormones. As a result, a person gets fat, swells, becomes lethargic, freezes, and also suffers from a lack of energy. If the level of hormones falls sharply, then a person may die, Khukharev emphasized. This is due to the fact that the organs will stop working against the background of multiple organ failure.
An excess of hormones leads to hyperthyroidism, Khukharev continued. This contributes to weight loss, increased sweating, dry skin appears.
“The man is nervous, cries, sobs, his heart is pounding like a young dog’s,” said the expert.
If the disease is not treated, then the person will be under the excessive action of thyroid hormones for a long time. As a result, thyrotoxicosis occurs, which causes the internal organs to expend their resources faster. First of all, with this disease, the heart suffers, the therapist specified.
Khukharev recommends that if such symptoms appear, consult a doctor and take an analysis to determine thyroid hormones.
Earlier, pediatrician of the highest category Maryam Saifulina said that people with chronic diseases and cardiovascular pathologies are most likely to catch a cold.
