Weakened analysis. Thyroid ultrasound, essential for weight loss

Weakened analysis. Healthy weight loss is essential in order to maintain dietary results. And first of all, we need a set of analyzes.

“We must first investigate thyroid function by an ultrasound and a few investigations specific to the proper functioning of the thyroid, ie thyroid hormones.

Then we need to do an abdominal ultrasound to see the fat in the internal organs. Most obese people have a fatty liver and, in general, fatty organs. Where we have fat: on the internal organs (fatty liver is the best known, a fat deposition specific to men), in circulation (cholesterol, triglycerides, cholesterol fractions, this is specific to both men and women) and subcutaneously, that fat visible to the naked eye (specific to women).

If we meet a patient who, in addition to obesity, has diabetes or a prediabetic condition, high blood pressure and high uric acid, ie poor protein metabolism, that patient is in metabolic syndrome, a complex pathology that is associated with snoring disease or chronic snoring, and the danger is great because he may die in his sleep.

We don’t have to play with such things, and we have to identify the metabolic syndrome in time, it is unfortunately underdiagnosed in Romania and treated in pieces, ie the nutritionist deals with obesity, the diabetes diabetologist, the cardiologist in the area hypertension.
