There are many different types of metabolic disorders—some are relatively minor, others are more serious, which can become life threatening.

Most people are unaware that cardiac disease, lupus, reproductive difficulties, diabetes, arthritis as well as many other health issues are associated with a poor functioning thyroid gland. Research has shown that early thyroid assessment can, in many cases, reduce the incidence or severity of these high profile diseases.
There are many types of thyroid disease. However, the main conditions present in most thyroid illnesses are hypothyroidism (thyroid under activity) and hyperthyroidism (thyroid over activity).
Thyroid hormone controls many activities in your body, including how fast you burn calories and how fast your heart beats. Diseases of the thyroid cause it to make either too much or too little of the hormone. Depending on how much or how little hormone your thyroid makes, you may often feel restless or tired, or you may lose or gain weight. Women are more likely than men to have thyroid diseases, especially right after pregnancy and after menopause.
Are you curious to know if what you eat can make you ill? Yes, you can have too much of a good thing!
It is known that food can cause many different types of reactions in the body. These may be evident in the skin (such as hives, rashes, itchiness, or swellings); the gut (such as reflux, vomiting, tummy pains, wind, diarrhoea, and constipation); when breathing (such as shortness of breath or a tight chest) or through generally feeling unwell.
Some people put up with symptoms for years, which could get better if the foods causing these symptoms were cut out of the diet.
Identifying the food trigger or triggers and a sensible management plan can allow life to be very different for the intolerance sufferer.
Tests are only part of obtaining a diagnosis – a thorough review of the person’s clinical history, an informed interpretation of tests in light of this and a nutritional plan is essential in making a difference.
Managing chronic fatigue syndrome can be as complex as the illness itself. There is no cure, no prescription drugs have been developed specifically for CFS, and symptoms can vary a lot over time. Thus, people with CFS should closely monitor their health and let their Clinician know of any changes; and Clinicians should regularly monitor their patients' conditions and change treatment strategies, as needed.
Vitamin deficiencies usually develop slowly over several months to years. Vitamin deficiency symptoms may be subtle at first, but they increase as the deficiency worsens.
Osteoporosis is a silent disease in which bones become fragile and more likely to break. It occurs due to mineral deficiency, particularly calcium, in your bones and can lead to disabling bone fractures. It can be the cause of back pain and should be diagnosed before compression fractures occur.
