Coordination, Thyroid, and Obesity

Early impairment of nerve-related function1 is a clear risk for developing later-life obesity, so concludes new research published in the British Journal of Medicine.  This finding is significant because it shows that early developmental problems with nerves have a wide-ranging impact on health – and obesity is one clear consequence.  The researchers felt such changes could be caused by social (stress) or environmental factors (exposure to toxins like cigarette smoke).

I would like to point out that other new research has identified that clumsiness is a clear first indicator of poor thyroid function, as brain signals that stimulate the thyroid gland to produce thyroid hormone also work in other regions of your brain to facilitate coordination.
