WHY WOMEN ARE MORE SUSCEPTIBLE TO THYROID GLAND DISEASES
• 6 min. read
Why do many of the symptoms and conditions we've covered in the thyroid disease articles affect women more than men? Why do we so often hear about thyroid problems and mysterious chronic illnesses as a women's problem?
First, some of this perception is wrong. Historically, there has been a greater stigma for men in admitting a physical ailment. In the 1940s and 1950s, when women visited the doctor describing their health problems, men also experienced an epidemic of depression, anxiety, mood swings, excessive sweating, body temperature fluctuations, brain fog, palpitations , and more. similar. However, Stoicism held high value for men. They have grown up with the message that they need to be strong and stable, and so many of them stay away from the doctor and keep their symptoms quiet, creating the illusion that only women suffer. Once women's symptoms cause enough of a stir in medical circles that they receive the widespread diagnosis of "menopause," similar symptoms in men become even more difficult to recognize. Now the man is not only hesitant to admit to "weakness"; which worries him anyway, and he fears by association that he is experiencing "physical changes" of his own.
Although it has not been as obvious, EBV has affected men greatly, and there is nothing to be ashamed of. Liver problems, weight gain, restless legs, hypertension, high cholesterol and constipation are just a few examples of these symptoms that you can probably recognize in at least one man in your life. Prostate cancer also originates from EBV.
However, there is much truth in the observation that women experience chronic symptoms such as thyroid problems at a higher rate than men. To a large extent, this has to do with a woman's reproductive cycle. Each month, her body puts a huge amount of energy and resources into preparing her body for the possibility of a baby being born. When a woman menstruates, 80% of her active immune system and body reserves go to renewing the womb, which greatly reduces the energy her body has available to protect itself from disease at that time. And during ovulation, 40% of her immune system and body reserves go to this process – again leaving the door open for disease to take advantage. Also, at this time the production of cortisol and adrenaline increases, which send EBV fuel into her bloodstream. All this means that twice a month, women become more susceptible to health threats like EBV . That's why women often get colds, flus, migraines or sore throats right before or during their period because their immune system goes down.
Not to mention that nowadays women live with more expectations than ever before. Under the pressure of having a career, running a household, pleasing their partners, empathizing and empathizing with their friends, taking care of their family and looking good while doing it, most women are practically 10, 20 or 30 work places. In addition to the physical and mental toll this brings, the awareness, intuition and compassion required to maintain it all can also be exhausting if there is no opportunity for recovery. It's very easy to become exhausted with all of this, and a weakened immune system is one of the favorite avenues for EBV to develop.
This means that women cannot get away with not taking care of themselves. If you're a woman and you've felt like you needed approval to make your health a priority, consider this your permission. Especially during menstruation, ovulation, pregnancy and postpartum recovery, take the necessary measures to maintain balance. It's the best you can do for those who rely on you. Otherwise, too many things hang in the balance.No matter who you are, you deserve to acknowledge any health issues you've faced with the mindset that it doesn't portray you in a bad light. If you're a man, remember: the symptoms and conditions you've read about in this chapter aren't just women's problems; EBV is an equal opportunity pathogen. You deserve to take care of yourself too. By exposing EBV for what it is, you can see your struggle in a whole new light.
