Signs and symptoms of Hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism treatment

Hypothyroidism is a condition under which the production of thyroid hormone is far less than usual. The purpose of thyroid hormone is to focus on the body's metabolism and when that is hit, it results in slow metabolism. Slow metabolism affects the growth, development, and many cellular processes which can have adverse effects on your body. Many people are victims of this disease, women, in general, bear the brunt most of the time. The increasing age is another reason to be affected by this disease. In the early stages of hypothyroidism, there are hardly any symptoms to detect it early on. When left untreated it can cause many health problems including obesity, joint pain, infertility, and heart disease.

One of the common reasons for hypothyroidism is due to problems with the thyroid gland. On another occasion, it happens due to some problem in the brain or pituitary gland. Other causes for these problems are Hashimoto's thyroiditis, increased amount of drugs, treatment of hyperthyroidism, treatment for thyroid tumors, iodine deficiency, family history, old age, radiation, and postpartum thyroiditis.

Symptoms that detect hypothyroidism are fatigue, exhaustion, tiredness, weight gain, dry or coarse hair, hair loss, muscle cramps, and frequent muscle aches, constipation, depression, irritability, the lapse of memory, sensitivity towards the cold, puffy face, abnormal menstrual cycles, and decreased libido. Many of these symptoms go unnoticed but as you get older these become a real threat.

It’s often treated with prescription medication, so see your doctor immediately if you have hyperthyroidism symptoms. But by eating certain foods, you can limit some mild hyperthyroidism symptoms
