10 Symptoms of Thyroid Ailments
9. Heat Intolerance
If you are constantly uncomfortable in warm weather you may have heat intolerance. This condition is also known as hypersensitivity. It is a result of your body’s inability to correctly regulate its temperature. This may be due to a dysfunctioning hypothalamus, which is the part of the brain that regulates temperature. When your thyroid produces too much of the hormone thyroxine, your body’s metabolism level is affected. When your metabolism speeds up, your body temperature rises. You may also notice yourself sweating more often as a means of cooling down. Remember to stay hydrated and drink plenty of water.
