Do you think your weight is appropriate for your height? Are you suffering from thyroid disorder? Today renowned medical experts, Dr. Willie Ong and his loving wife Dr. Liza-Ramoso Ong will discuss with you these important health topics.
According to Dr. Liza, the ideal weight for both men and women depends on their height. To check for your ideal weight, look for a chart which measures your height in relation to the proper weight. If you weigh at least 10 pounds higher than the recommended weight for your height, then you are overweight or obese. On the other hand, if your weight is 10 pounds lower than the recommended weight then you are underweight or malnourished.
In case you’re unaware, your Thyroid gland is the butterfly-shaped gland located in front of your neck. A normal thyroid gland weighs less than an ounce. Its main function is to produce hormones called T3 and T4 that are responsible for controlling your mood, regulating your body’s metabolism, and other important activities in your body.
However, there could be lack or excess in the production. Hyperthyroidism is the condition in which your thyroid gland produces too many hormones. While Hypothyroidism is a disorder in which the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone.
To check whether you have a Thyroid disorder, simply drink a glass of water. While taking a gulp, look whether you see something moving in front of your neck. If you happen to notice something then this could be an indication that you have a large thyroid.

The good doctor assures us that if we happen to have cancer in the thyroid, then we don’t need to worry about it too much. It is because this is the most benign cancer in the body. It also spreads very slow in the body. Nevertheless, you still recommend you to undergo an operation to avoid possible risk factors. If you are suffering from goiter or the abnormal enlargement of your thyroid gland, then remember to consult an endocrinologist.
