THYROID DISORDERS

THYROID DISORDERS

The thyroid gland produces thyroid hormones which control many processes in your body, including your metabolism. Diseases of the thyroid affect the function of the hormone and consequently your metabolism.
Women are more likely to have thyroid diseases than men, especially right after pregnancy and during menopause.

Common thyroid disorders:
1. Hypothyroidism/ Hashimoto’s thyroiditis.
2. Hyperthyroidism.
3. Thyroid cancer.

Hypothyroidism and PCOS sometimes co exist. Hypothyroidism and diabetes can also co exist. Hypothyroidism is known to cause insulin resistance. The Thyroid Management Program takes a multidisciplinary approach in the treatment of various thyroid diseases.

Customised Exercise Plan

Exercise

Exercise plays an important role in weight management and increasing hormone sensitivity. Hypothyroid patients can have poor neuromuscular function that can occur at any time. Although mild, they include weakness, pain, aching, and stiffness. Weight training and cardio exercises must be balanced. Our training team will structure your exercise routine with modifications if required. It may be harder to lose weight even if the blood levels normalise with treatment; therefore consistency is key.
