Hypothyroidism
  • Hypothyroidism is a condition where the body has
    an insufficient amount of the thyroid hormone.
    Since the primary purpose of this hormone is to
    regulate the bodys metabolism, it is no wonder
    that this problem can have such a dramatic impact
    on the entire body. Hypothyroidism is more
    common than most people think. In fact,
    statistical averages show that approximately 10
    million Americans are suffering from this
    condition. Its difficult to find out exactly
    how many have it due to so many suffering from it
    and not even knowing it, as its symptoms can vary
    dramatically depending on the extent of hormone
    deficiency there is.

What Are the Causes of Hypothyroidism?
  • There are two primary causes of hypothyroidism.
    The most common cause for thyroid failure is due
    to inflammation of the thyroid, which results in
    a large percentage of the cells of the thyroid
    ending up either damaged or dead. The second
    most common cause is due to medical treatments.
    This may be from such things as the surgical
    removal of a portion of the thyroid due to
    cancer. If the remaining cells of the thyroid
    are insufficient for the requirements of the
    body, hypothyroidism is the result.
