Hypothyroidism can surprisingly lead to headaches, sinus infections, migraines, sore throats, hair loss, weight gain and several other health symptoms.
Hypothyroidism occurs when our thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone. The thyroid is one of the biggest glands of our endocrine glands. This controls the amount of energy our body uses up.
Research has shown that when the thyroid is not producing enough hormones, a person may notice that their sinuses seem to be “acting” up to. Remember that a hypothyroid disease can cause such a problem.
When your thyroid is not functioning properly your metabolism is not burning enough energy which does not let all the bad bacteria to get out of your body and will lead to a sinus infection.
People who suffer from chronic headaches, sinus infections, migraines, sore throats, etc. may not even know that they are suffering from a hypothyroid. This can be a silent disease.
It is very important to talk to your doctor about any possibility of hypothyroidism if you are suffering from chronic sinus infections.
But not only can this cause sinus infections, sinus infections can lead to other problems. This could include snoring.
As explained in our snoring program before, it is valuable to know about why sinus infections may cause snoring.
Any type of sinus infections can lead to a blockage in our nasal cavities. This causes the tonsils, palate, and uvula to bounce off of each other and cause vibrations.
Not only can this lead to sinus infections, but also weight gain. It is hard to lose weight when you have an under acting thyroid and most people think it is because their diet and exercise are not good enough. No, it may very well be because your metabolism is too low.
