Hypothyroidism, also called underactive thyroid disease, is a common disorder. With hypothyroidism, your thyroid gland does not make enough thyroid hormone. The thyroid gland is located in the front lower part of your neck. Hormones released by the gland travel through your bloodstream and affect nearly every part of your body, from your heart and brain, to your muscles and skin.


Symptoms of hypothyroidism may be vague and can often mimic other conditions. They may include:

  • Changes in the menstrual cycle
  • Constipation
  • Depression
  • Dry hair and hair loss
  • Dry skin
  • Elevated cholesterol
  • Fatigue
  • Greater sensitivity to cold
  • Hoarse voice
  • Joint pain, stiffness, and swelling
  • Problems with memory
  • Muscle aches and stiffness
  • Muscle weakness
  • Puffy face

Children and teens may also have hypothyroidism with the signs and symptoms seen in adults. Kids and teens may also have:

  • Delays in puberty
  • Delays in growth and shorter stature
  • Slow mental development
  • Slower development of permanent teeth


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.

Diagnosis of Hypothyroidism

Diagnosing hypothyroidism involves:

  • Blood Tests: Measuring thyroid hormone levels, particularly TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) and thyroid hormones (T3 and T4).

Who Needs Hypothyroidism Treatment
Anyone diagnosed with hypothyroidism, especially if experiencing symptoms or complications, should seek treatment.

When to See a Specialist

Consult a healthcare provider if you suspect you have symptoms of hypothyroidism. They can refer you to an endocrinologist or a thyroid specialist for further evaluation.


  • Diagnosis: Your healthcare provider will perform blood tests to determine thyroid hormone levels and confirm the diagnosis.
  • Medication: Treatment typically involves daily thyroid hormone replacement medication, such as levothyroxine.

Road To Recovery

With proper treatment, most people with hypothyroidism can lead normal, healthy lives. Medication needs to be taken as prescribed to maintain thyroid hormone levels within the normal range.

Risk Management

  • Regular Monitoring: Routine check-ups and periodic blood tests to adjust medication as needed and ensure hormone levels are stable.

Benefits of Hypothyroidism Treatment
