Kathmandu, August 6
The Thyroid Federation International has recently opened its chapter in Nepal. The organisation’s President, Ashok Bhaseen, handed over a certificate of affiliation to Thyroid Foundation Nepal.
During the event held in Kathmandu on Saturday, Bhaseen expressed concerns over the rise of thyroid all over the world including Nepal and agreed to help Thyroid Foundation Nepal in making sure people are aware of the disease.
He pointed out the need to make more people aware so that people do not suffer from this disease.
Thyroid disorders are conditions that affect the thyroid gland, a butterfly-shaped gland in the front of the neck. The thyroid has important roles to regulate numerous metabolic processes throughout the body.
Bhaseen also highlighted the symptoms of the thyroid which are fatigue, increased sensitivity to cold, dry skin, constipation, weight, puffy face, hoarseness, muscle weakness. Other symptoms include the swelling of goitre and irregularity in the menstruation cycle for women.
Around 80% of patients suffering from Thyroid are female.
