ZOB is an increase in the thyroid gland. In itself, the name “goiter” is taken from the designation of the area of the enlarged esophagus in birds. It is also called goiter and is a kind of sediment bowl for food.
Such a disease is most often found in countries where there is an iodine deficiency (however, it can be caused by a high iodine content when iodine preparations are used). Women are susceptible to this disease 5 times more often than men. The educated nodes are nothing but a lot of fibrous scars that form in the tissues of the thyroid gland.
The thyroid gland (thyroid gland) is the center for controlling metabolism in the human body. She is often called a health guard, so she behaves accordingly, if she had any problems with her: irritability, mood swings, fatigue and drowsiness.
Problems with thyroid gland occur more often in women in adulthood, but for men this problem is quite urgent.
Thyroid gland is one of the most important organs of our body. Despite its meager size and weight (about 20 grams), it is truly a generator of vital energy. No wonder physicians call it “working bee”. The thyroid gland produces thyroxine, triiodothyronine, and these are exactly the substances without which the body produces the necessary energy is practically impossible. And this energy is directed to the work of all human systems and organs.
Shchitovidka also regulates the activity of the heart, brain activity, muscle tone (“muscle armor”). This is the guardian of health. At women with the years there is a hormonal reorganization – before and after approach of a menopause. Therefore, the thyroid gland is very sensitive during this period, it reacts quickly to stresses, weakening of the immune system, infections, deficiency or excess of iodine. Because of the pathological activation of antibodies that counteract healthy cells, the body is more exposed to autoimmune diseases with age. These antibodies reduce the thyroid function. As a result, there is weakness, deterioration in memory quality, puffiness, weight gain, dry skin, brittle hair, muscle pains and spasms, constipation.
