Thyroid causes weight gain problems in many people. But do you know women are most vulnerable to thyroid disease? The enlargement of the thyroid gland causes this disease. This gland is in the shape of a butterfly, which controls many essential activities of the body. The thyroid gland produces the T3 and T4 thyroxine hormones that have a direct effect on the breath, heart, digestive system, and body temperature. Besides, they also control bones, muscles and cholesterol. When these hormones become unbalanced in the body, the weight starts decreasing or increasing, and this is called the thyroid disease/problem.
