YOU MIGHT WANT TO THINK TWICE ON DOING THESE 5 HABITS IF YOU HAVE A THYROID PROBLEM
Our daily habits greatly affect our health. Whatever we do on a daily basis will cause either good or harm to our whole system. Some people just can’t help but do bad habits that can worsen health conditions like thyroid problems. Here are the 5 bad habits that can worsen your thyroid condition.
A lot of warnings and advocacies against the dangers of smoking have been exposed to the public, but people are still too stubborn to heed. Smoking can bring about damage to the thyroid or worsen the thyroid problem that is already present. Cyanide is one component of tobacco smoke, which is converted to thiocyanate, which acts as an anti-thyroid agent, directly inhibiting iodide uptake and hormone synthesis.
Other components of smoke that might have antithyroid action can decrease the binding of triiodothyronine (T3) to its receptors or its post-receptor actions in the liver, muscle, or other organs, or both. This means that the cyanide and other components of tobacco smoke mentioned above prevent the thyroid gland from producing hormones that connect to the receptors.
