The thyroid gland function can be checked at home…
Thyroid gland (thyroid) looks like a butterfly and is located at the beginning of the neck. The hormones produced by this gland are very important for proper body function. If there is an excess secretion of thyroid hormones, people become hyperactive, while when the secretion is reduced, they suffer from dizziness and weakness. Also, the thyroid gland can be affected by various diseases and can be enlarged as well.
To check it at home, you will need a mirror and a glass of water.
How to check the thyroid gland: Lift your head up and drink sip of water. Use the mirror to watch the movement of the thyroid gland. Repeat several times, taking larger and smaller sips and note if there are any unusual changes and asymmetries. Note if during the swallowing something unusual happens, especially if it becomes enlarged.
Perform this procedure regularly in order to check the health of this gland, especially if you are feeling tired for no reason, or have someone in the family who has a problem with the thyroid gland. If you have noticed some changes, you feel that something is wrong or you have several symptoms that indicate improper function of the thyroid gland, do not panic – consult your doctor.
