Hollywood Stars Who Have Thyroid
The thyroid is a gland located in the neck that is responsible for making hormones so that energy can be produced by the conversion of food. It often goes unnoticed until the occurrence of some serious issues which can happen as a result of a disease or an injury. Thyroid related disorders are more likely to affect women and even the chances of thyroid cancer are higher in females.
Precisely, there are two main types of thyroid related problems: hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. The former is a condition where the production of thyroid hormones is lower than normal which is caused by the autoimmune condition Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. Contrarily, hyperthyroidism is a state which results in an overactive thyroid causing extra production of the related hormone.
To your surprise, many of your favorite celebrities also struggle with this health issue that can get as serious as cancer. The sensational supermodel Gigi Hadid has Hashimoto’s disease which led her to hypothyroidism that makes her struggle with problems like water retention and inflammation.
Jane the Virgin fame Gina Rodriguez is also one of the celebs who has been living with thyroid disease. Rather than stressing too much about the weight (hypothyroidism causes weight gain), the actress focuses on keeping herself fit by sticking to healthy food options and proper workout.
There are instances when both the conditions related to thyroid imbalance may occur one after other in a person. As the world-famous talk show host, Oprah Winfrey puts it – she was first hit by hyperthyroidism which left her with deprivation of sleep for many days and opposite to what other experience generally, she didn’t lose any weight. Oprah’s struggle didn’t stop there as what followed was hypothyroidism which made her feel exhausted most of the time and even brought along 20 pounds of excess weight.
