  • What Is Hypothyroidism?
  • An underactive thyroid can affect your everyday
    life and mess up your metabolism. This condition
    is known as hypothyroidism and may cause weight
    gain, depression, and mood swings. People with
    autoimmune diseases as well as those taking
    antidepressants are more likely to develop this
    condition. On rare occasions, hypothyroidism can
    be triggered by pituitary disorders and iodine
    deficiency. The good news is that you can control
    this disease by taking daily hormone tablets.
  • How Does It Happen?
  • Hypothyroidism is one of the most common
    disorders affecting the thyroid gland. This
    butterfly-shaped organ is located in the front
    lower part of your neck. It produces three
    hormones that influence your metabolism, heart
    rate, energy expenditure, body temperature, and
    protein synthesis. Hypothyroidism occurs when
    this endocrine gland is underactive and doesn't
    make enough hormones.
  • This health condition may have several causes,
    including Hashimoto's disease, radiation
    treatment, amyloidosis, thyroiditis, and
    autoimmune disorders. Some babies are born
    without a thyroid or have one that is
    dysfunctional. A diet offering too much or too
    little iodine, certain medications, and surgical
    removal of the thyroid gland can cause
    hypothyroidism too.
  • Symptoms and Treatment
  • In general, hypothyroidism causes muscle aches,
    increased sensitivity to cold, tiredness, dry
    skin and hair, unexplained weight gain, lack of
    energy, constipation, slow heart rate, and
    difficulty losing weight. These symptoms are
    quite common and can indicate other diseases too.
    If you have an underactive thyroid, you may feel
    cold all the time. Muscle weakness and tingling
    hands may be a sign of hypothyroidism as well.
  • Treatment usually consists of hormone tablets,
    such as levothyroxine. Their role is to replace
    the hormones your thyroid gland isn't making.
    Hypothyroidism is a lifelong condition, so it can
    not be cured. However, you can control its
    symptoms by taking medications and eating a
    well-balanced diet. Regular exercise and stress
    relief techniques can reduce your symptoms too.
  • What Causes Hypothyroidism?
  • Hypothyroidism affects millions of people
    worldwide. Statistics show that more than one
    percent of U.S. adults suffer from this
    condition. Many of them gain weight and
    experience serious issues because of their
    disease. Sensitivity to cold, muscular weakness,
    extreme fatigue, and slow heart beat are just a
    few of the symptoms caused by an underactive
    thyroid. This health disorder can have a variety
    of causes, ranging from hereditary factors to
    medications and radiation treatment.

5
  • Here are some of the most common causes of
    hypothyroidism
  • Congenital Factors It is estimated that one in
    4,000 people are born without a thyroid or have
    one that doesn't work properly. Many children
    have this problem because their thyroid gland was
    affected by medications taken by the mother
    during pregnancy.
  • Autoimmune Diseases Celiac disease, Hashimotos
    thyroiditis and other autoimmune disorders may
    cause hypothyroidism. Scientists don't fully
    understand how this happens. Chronic lymphocytic
    thyroiditis or Hashimotos disease is the primary
    cause of hypothyroidism in America. If you have
    this disorder, your immune system attacks the
    thyroid gland, affecting its ability to produce
    hormones.
  • Medications Research indicates that certain
    medications may interfere with thyroid hormone
    production. These include interleukin-2, lithium,
    interferon alpha, amiodarone, and
    antidepressants.
  • Pregnancy Many women develop an underactive
    thyroid during or after pregnancy. If left
    untreated, hypothyroidism can cause miscarriage,
    preeclamsia, and premature delivery. It may also
    increase the baby's risk of developing
    cardiovascular problems and brain development
    issues.
  • Thyroiditis Thyroiditis is one of the most
    common causes of hypothyroidism. This disorder
    leads to inflammation of the thyroid gland. It
    can also cause hyperthyroidism followed by
    hypothyroidism.
  • Pituitary Disorders If your pituitary gland
    doesnt produce enough TSH, it can affect your
    thyroid. Studies have found that about one
    percent of all hypothyroidism causes are caused
    by pituitary disorders.
  • Radiation Therapy Many cancer patients develop
    thyroid problems following radiation treatment.
    Additionally, people suffering from nodular
    goiter, thyroid cancer, or Graves' disease are
    often treated with radioactive iodine, which may
    lead to hypothyroidism.

  • How Does the Thyroid Gland Affect Your Health?
  • Are you constantly tired and fatigued despite
    getting enough sleep? Do you have a hard time
    losing weight? If so, your thyroid might not be
    working well. The thyroid gland plays a key role
    in your health, and can be easily affected by
    stress, hormonal imbalances, and lack of sleep.
    Its role is to make, store, and release certain
    hormones into your body. Having too much or too
    little thyroid hormone in the blood can affect
    your metabolism, causing sudden weight gain or
    loss, depression, fatigue, infertility, and slow
    heart rate.
  • How Does the Thyroid Work?
  • The thyroid gland controls metabolism, regulates
    appetite, and contributes to protein synthesis.
    It also produces hormones and calcitonin, and
    influences body temperature. This endocrine gland
    is brownish-red in color and sits low on the
    front of your neck.
  • Triiodothyronine (T3), thyroxine (T4), and
    calcitonin, the hormones secreted by the thyroid
    gland, are essential to the proper functioning of
    your body. They promote growth in children,
    increase the basal metabolic rate, regulate
    energy expenditure, and control heartbeat. The
    hypothalamus, pituitary gland, and thyroid gland
    all work together to control these hormones.
  • What Is Thyroid Disease?
  • Thyroid disease is a general term that refers to
    hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, thyroid nodules,
    thyroiditis and other disorders affecting this
    gland. If your thyroid makes too few or too many
    hormones, you may experience a number of symptoms
    like
  • Weight loss
  • Unexpected weight gain
  • Increased heart rate
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Digestive distress
  • Mood swings

7
  • Signs That You May Have a Thyroid Problem
  • Hypothyroidism is an endocrine disorder
    characterized by low thyroid hormones in the
    body. Its causes are varied and can include
    inflammatory and autoimmune diseases, thyroid
    surgery, iodine deficiency, pregnancy, and
    medications. Some people feel ill and gain weight
    after developing this condition, while others
    have no symptoms at all. The signs of
    hypothyroidism depend on the severity of the
    hormone deficiency.
  • What Are the Symptoms of an Underactive Thyroid?
  • An underactive thyroid fails to produce enough T3
    and T4 hormones into the bloodstream, causing
    your metabolism to slow down. If left untreated,
    it can lead to complications and early death. Its
    symptoms develop gradually and can get worse
    without proper treatment. Most people with
    hypothyroidism experience
  • Constipation
  • Dry hair and skin
  • Chills
  • Lethargy and fatigue
  • Brain fog
  • Hair loss
  • Goiter
  • Weight gain
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Tendency to fall asleep during the day

  • Tell the doctor about your symptoms. He will also
    request information about your overall health and
    family history. A physical exam along with TS,
    free T4 index, free T4, and total T4 may be
    helpful. After making a diagnosis, the doctor
    will decide what treatment suits your individual
    needs.
  • How Is Hypothyroidism Diagnosed?
  • Hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland
    fails to produce enough hormones to keep the body
    running normally. If you have this condition, you
    may feel tired and depressed, gain weight, and
    become forgetful. Some people experience
    persistent jaundice, extreme sleepiness, cold
    hands, bloating, and puffy face. These symptoms
    are non-specific and can be attributed to
    hundreds of other disorders. For this reason,
    it's recommended to check your thyroid gland
    regularly.
  • Exams and Tests
  • If you have any symptoms indicating an
    underactive thyroid, contact your doctor.
    Although hypothyroidism is not a medical
    emergency, it may cause serious complications. A
    complete physical exam followed by blood tests
    can help detect thyroid problems. The most common
    tests for diagnosing an underactive thyroid
    include
  • TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) test
  • Total T3
  • Free T3
  • Total T4
  • Free T4
  • Your doctor may also request calcitonin,
    thyroglobulin, and TPOAb (thyroid antibodies)
    tests. These medical exams help diagnose and
    monitor thyroid diseases. All it takes is a blood
    sample taken from the patient. Most times,
    doctors can make a diagnosis based on TSH and T4
    levels in the blood. A low level of T4 (thyroxin)
    and a high level of THS usually indicate an
    underactive thyroid.

  • Are You at Risk for Hypothyroidism?
  • Do you have a slow metabolism? Have you gained
    weight recently? Are you sleepy and tired all day
    long? Then you should check your thyroid. More
    than 12 percent of people will develop a thyroid
    disorder during their lifestyle. After diabetes,
    hypothyroidism is the most common health
    condition out there. Its symptoms include
    tiredness, weight gain, numb and tingling hands,
    depression, hair loss, and constipation. This
    thyroid disorder affects people of all ages and
    can occur anytime.
  • What Is Hypothyroidism?
  • Hypothyroidism is a common endocrine disorder
    caused by underactivity of the thyroid gland. If
    you suffer from this condition, your thyroid
    gland doesn't produce enough hormones. It is
    estimated that more than 4.6 percent of Americans
    have this problem.
  • Women are eight to 10 times more likely to
    develop hypothyroidism than men do. The risk
    increases with age.
  • Low thyroid hormone levels affect your overall
    health, causing dry skin, memory problems, low
    energy, high cholesterol, and extreme fatigue.
    This condition can occur spontaneously or develop
    after pregnancy. Other common causes include
    Hashimoto's thyroiditis, congenital
    hypothyroidism, and certain medications.
  • Causes and Risk Factors
  • Hypothyroidism can be caused by one or more
    factors, such as an autoimmune disease, radiation
    treatment, surgical removal of part or all of the
    thyroid gland, damage to the pituitary gland, and
    thyroiditis. Many patients develop
    hyperthyroidism followed by hypothyroidism.
  • This health condition is more common in people
    with rheumatoid arthritis, type I diabetes,
    celiac disease, multiple sclerosis, Turner
    syndrome, Down syndrome, and manic depression.
    The risk is high among those with a family
    history of thyroid or autoimmune diseases.
    Hypothyroidism has a wide range of symptoms that
    mimic those associated with other disorders. The
    only way to find out if you have this condition
    is through blood tests. Although hypothyroidism
    cant be cured, it can be kept under control with
    medications.

10
  • Simple Ways to Prevent Hypothyroidism
  • Did you know that over 27 million Americans have
    problems with their thyroid gland? About 13
    million are undiagnosed, which increases their
    risk of developing complications. Yet,
    hypothyroidism can be prevented. By making simple
    lifestyle changes, you can keep your thyroid
    healthy and stabilize hormone levels.
  • Eat a Balanced Diet
  • What you eat affects how you look and feel.
    Certain foods improve thyroid function, while
    others can have a negative impact on your hormone
    levels. Your diet should be based on natural
    foods and provide optimal amounts of iron,
    selenium, iodine, and vitamin A. These nutrients
    support healthy hormone production. Steer clear
    of foods that are high in sugar, trans-fats, and
    artificial ingredients.
  • Get Enough Iodine
  • Iodine deficiency is one of the main causes of
    hypothyroidism. Although this problem is rare in
    the U.S., it occurs frequently in other parts the
    world. A diet low in iodine can negative affect
    thyroid function, causing hormone imbalances.
  • Many foods, such as salt, milk, and flour, are
    fortified with iodine, so be sure to check the
    labels carefully. This nutrient can also be found
    in cod fish, shrimps, eggs, lean meat, bananas,
    and prunes. Aim for at least 150 micrograms of
    iodine a day.
  • Avoid Stress
  • The thyroid gland is extremely sensitive to
    stress. Everyday problems, anxiety, depression,
    and traumatic events can interfere with thyroid
    function and affect your overall health. Even
    though you can't eliminate stress from your life,
    you can minimize its impact. Meditation, yoga,
    physical exercise, and proper sleep can reduce
    the harmful effects of stress.
  • Check Yourself

11
  • Treating an Underactive Thyroid
  • Have you been recently diagnosed with
    hypothyroidism? Are you currently under
    treatment? If so, make sure you follow the
    doctor's advice and take your medications. With
    proper treatment, the signs and symptoms of an
    underactive thyroid can be reversed. Even though
    this condition cannot be cured, you can reduce
    its symptoms and prevent complications.
  • Treatment Options for Hypothyroidism
  • Hypothyroidism is treated with synthetic
    thyroxine pills. These medications are identical
    to the hormone T4. L-thyroxine monotherapy has
    become the mainstay treatment for underactive
    thyroid. Dosage depends on your age, weight,
    cause of hypothyroidism, overall health, and
    other drugs you are taking.
  • If you've had thyroid surgery, all of your T4
    must be replaced with thyroxine. Seniors need
    lower doses to give their body time to adjust.
    Overweight and obese individuals require a higher
    dose. Your doctor is the only one who can
    determine the exact dose of thyroxyne needed.
    Over time, he may lower or increase your dose
    gradually.
  • Hypothyroidism treatment is required for life.
  • Is It Possible to Treat Hypothyroidism Naturally?
  • Many patients skip hormonal treatment and use
    natural cures for thyroid disorders. In general,
    it's recommended to add more iodine to your diet,
    avoid all sources of fluoride, and stick to a
    natural diet. Eat whole, natural foods and cut
    back on gluten, dairy, and other allergens.
    L-arginine, l-tyrosine, and selenium supplements
    can help reduce hypothyroidism symptoms. If you
    have an underactive thyroid, avoid stress at all
    costs.
  • Supplementing with chlorophyll, chlorella, milk
    thistle, tulsi, and ashwagandha can improve
    thyroid function and lower your cortisol levels.
    Cortisol, the stress hormone, affects endocrine
    function, causing hormonal imbalances. Regular
    exercise, deep breathing, meditation, and
    acupuncture can help reduce cortisol levels too.
    These alternative treatments are not backed up by
    science, but they seem to work for patients with
    mild hypothyroidism. For best results, they
    should be used along with thyroxine therapy.

  • 4 Ways to Boost Thyroid Function
  • Every year, millions of people are diagnosed with
    thyroid disorders that require life-long
    treatment. These problems may put them at risk
    for serious conditions, such as obesity,
    osteoporosis, heart disease, and infertility. A
    stress-free lifestyle, good nutrition, and
    regular exercise can help improve thyroid
    function and boost your energy. By changing your
    diet and lifestyle habits, you can prevent
    thyroid diseases or minimize their impact on your
    health.
  • Stick to an Autoimmune Diet
  • Grains, soy, vegetable oils, refined sugar, and
    processed foods can trigger autoimmune disorders
    and cause inflammation in your body. This
    increases your risk of developing thyroid
    problems. Thus, it's important to avoid foods
    that can be inflammatory or cause allergies. At
    the same time, increase your daily intake of
    essential fats and medium chain triglycerides
    (MCTs), such as those found in coconut oil,
    salmon, and sardines.
  • Get More Selenium in Your Diet
  • Selenium is an essential mineral that supports
    thyroid health. This nutrient can be found in
    garlic, onions, Brazil nuts, whole grains, fatty
    fish, chicken, turkey, and lean meat.
  • Your body needs selenium to decrease thyroid
    antibodies and convert thyroxin to its active
    form (T3).
  • Find More Time for Yourself
  • Take the time to relax, sleep more, and do the
    things you love. Stress is often the culprit
    behind hypothyroidism, stroke, cardiovascular
    disease, weight gain and other conditions. Get at
    least eight hours of sleep every night, make
    exercise a habit, and avoid stress as much as
    possible.
  • Reduce Exposure to PFOA

13
  • Dietary Changes That Can Help Your Thyroid
    Naturally
  • Want to improve thyroid health and maybe lose a
    few pounds? If so, consider changing your diet.
    Some foods boost thyroid function and keep your
    hormone levels in check. Others can hurt your
    thyroid, causing endocrine problems and
    inflammation. A balanced diet can help prevent
    thyroid disorders, reduce hypothyroidism, and
    boost your energy.
  • Here are some dietary changes to keep your
    thyroid healthy
  • Eat More Fish
  • Tuna, salmon, sardines, mackerel, sardines and
    other fatty fish contain omega-3 essential fats,
    which support thyroid function and decrease
    inflammation. By eating more fish, you'll reduce
    your risk of thyroid disorders, heart disease,
    high cholesterol, stroke, and obesity. Fish also
    contains selenium, which plays a key role in
    thyroid health.
  • Eliminate Allergens
  • Cut back on wheat and gluten products to reduce
    inflammation and prevent thyroid problems. These
    allergens can trigger autoimmune thyroid disease,
    or worsen its symptoms. Gluten can trigger
    thyroid antibody production. If you're allergic
    to nuts, dairy, soy, or fructose, clean up your
    diet and remove these foods. This can help you
    lose weight and enjoy better health.
  • Consume Iodine-Rich Foods
  • One of the best ways to prevent hypothyroidism is
    to eat iodine-rich foods every day. Make sure
    your daily menu includes salt water fish,
    seafood, seaweed, Celtic sea salt, eggs,
    cranberries, and sushi. These foods can assist
    the thyroid gland in keeping up with your
    metabolism.
