Puffiness, dry skin, numbness of the hands may indicate thyroid problems

Abdominal stomach, bloating, diarrhea, constipation - Symptoms that affect many are usually suspected of stress, poor eating habits, food allergy, intolerance or irritable bowel syndrome. However, it can be caused by the thyroid gland.

Prof. Csaba Balabzs Endocrinology, a doctor at the Buda Endocrine Center, was asked about this and other lesser known symptoms of the disease.

Returning abdominal problems

Nowadays, abdominal discomfort, bloating, and complaints of rigors have become morbid due to irregular eating and stressful lifestyle. Fiber-poor diet, low fluid intake and reduced mobility often lead to constipation. If you have changed these factors and your troubles are not resolved, think - especially if there is another symptom - that you may have hyperthyroidism. It may be a sign of diarrhea if we experience the opposite, meaning frequent diarrhea. In these cases, tests are usually directed towards hypersensitivity and possibly irritable bowel syndrome, but it is important to check your thyroid status!

Nibbling hands

Hand or wrist tunnel syndrome is known as pain or numbness in the upper limbs, which is known as the upper limb. Symptoms may be accompanied by inflammation, bruising, in addition to overloading the water. Few people think about it, but there may be background thyroid dysfunction. We have ranked the complaints of patients with thyroid dysfunction using a numerical program, and based on this, the surprising result was that the problem of hand numbness was often preceded by medical literature.Abdominal problems may also indicate thyroid problems


In the case of eye symptoms, primarily Basedow's disease, which is often the first symptom of enlargement and enlargement of the eyes, should be mentioned. However, this is not the only eye complaint that can be related to the thyroid gland. Nowadays, more and more people are saddened by the quality of their lives, who are primarily responsible for the use of air-conditioning equipment and the work done before the computer. However, it is important to know that this symptom can also be an early sign of thyroid disease. In such cases, not using the eye drops, only the treatment of the underlying disease can eliminate the stinging sensation, and the eyes can be excreted.

Dry leather

A handshake can also be crazy. If, upon introduction, the patient's hand is noticeably dry, a paleness of palms may appear on the palm of the hands, this may suggest that thyroid is not all right, Professor Balazs says. If you also look at your rubbers and find that they are cracked, shrunken in longitudinal direction, it may confirm that it is indeed worth investigating further.
