Thyroid malfunction can be a bigger deal in women with all their other hormonal cycles being affected, and closely interlinked with Polycystic Ovarian Disorder.
Thyroid malfunction can affect adults as well as children. Iodine deficiency is one of the major causes of thyroid malfunction, and is one of those that can be easily prevented by tweaking our daily diet.
Thyroid malfunction affects millions of people worldwide – affecting every woman out of 10. The early symptoms of thyroid disease can be fairly easily detected as it’s a problem relating to almost every function of the body.
There are now certain medications being given to women and girls for keeping their hormone levels under control and helping the thyroid gland to function properly. But the important thing to note here is that any of these signs and symptoms of thyroid malfunction seen in teenage girls has to be brought to the notice of a medical practioner without much delay, not to be mistaken to be a normal fallout of adolescence.
We all know about the common types of thyroid malfunction like Hyperthyroidism (over active secretion of hormones) and Hypothyroidism (under active or less secretion of hormones). Other than that, we should also be aware of Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, which plays its game through immune system hacking upon the thyroid, related to hypothyroidism. In it the body takes the thyroid’s T3, T4 and TSH levels as threats, targeting the thyroid cells as producing anti-bodies.

I've routinely oiled, shampooed, and got a spa for my hair. Yet, my hair-fall problem didn't stop! How did I fix my hair-fall concern? I switched to Traya.
Ever since I was a little girl, I loved playing with dolls–my favourite task was to comb their silky smooth hair with the little plastic comb that came with the doll’s box set. I would squat in the garden beside the marigold bushes and spend hours playing with the synthetic hair, all in an attempt to replicate the care my grandfather showered on me.
My grandfather would religiously sit with me every Sunday, and oil my hair with warm coconut oil. No one better than him knew the pain of having thin wavy hair that tangled up like cobwebs. Caring for his grandkid’s hair was his way of showing love and teaching me how to groom myself.
I’ve inherited the Sunday morning hair oiling ritual and the wonderfully unpredictable, wavy hair from my grandfather. I affectionately refer to it as hair with a mind of its own, as there hasn’t been a day when my hair hasn’t been a bit temperamental. On a rainy day, it is greasy, on a hot day itchy, on a cold winter morning frizzy! When I need it to stay straight, it dances like a flag in the wind and when I want the messy look, my hair mimics soaked wool!
