Spread the love

Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid) is a condition in which the thyroid gland doesn’t produce enough of certain crucial hormones. 

Hypothyroidism may not cause noticeable symptoms in the early stages. Over time, untreated hypothyroidism can cause a number of health problems, such as obesity, joint pain, infertility and heart disease. 

Symptoms

The most common signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism include;

  • Fatigue
  • Depression
  • Constipation
  • Feeling cold
  • Dry skin
  • Weight gain
  • Muscle weakness
  • Decreased sweating
  • Slowed heart rate
  • Elevated blood cholesterol
  • Pain and stiffness in the joints
  • Dry, thinning hair
  • Impaired memory
  • Muscle stiffness, aches and tenderness
  • Hoarseness
  • Puffy, sensitive face

Cause of Hypothyroidism 

The most common cause of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. “Thyroiditis” is an inflammation of the thyroid gland. Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is an autoimmune disorder. With Hashimoto’s, your body produces antibodies that attack and destroy the thyroid gland. Thyroiditis may also be caused by a viral infection.

Other causes of hypothyroidism include;

  • Radiation therapy to the neck area
  • Radioactive iodine treatment 
  • Use of certain medications
  • Thyroid surgery 
  • Too little iodine in the diet
  • Pregnancy 
  • Problems with the thyroid at birth
  • Pituitary gland damage or disorder
  • Disorder of the hypothalamus

Treatment

If the thyroid gland produces too much thyroid hormone, the condition is known as hyperthyroidism. Treatment for this condition aims to reduce and normalize thyroid hormone production. Sometimes, treatment can cause the levels of the thyroid hormone to remain low permanently. This often occurs after treatment with radioactive iodine. 

  • Surgical Removal of the Thyroid
  • Radiation therapy
