Hypothyroidism is a common thyroid disorder that occurs when the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormones to meet the body’s needs. These hormones play a crucial role in regulating various bodily functions, including metabolism, energy production, and temperature control.

Causes of Hypothyroidim

Hypothyroidism can have various underlying causes, including:

  • Autoimmune Thyroiditis: Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, an autoimmune condition, is a common cause of hypothyroidism.
  • Thyroid Surgery: Surgical removal of the thyroid gland can lead to hypothyroidism.
  • Radiation Therapy: Previous radiation treatment to the neck or head.
  • Medications: Some medications can affect thyroid function.
  • Iodine Deficiency: Inadequate iodine intake in the diet (rare in regions with sufficient dietary iodine).


Diagnosing hypothyroidism involves a thorough evaluation, which may include:

  1. Medical History: Discussing your symptoms and medical history.
  2. Physical Examination: A physical exam to check for signs of hypothyroidism.
  3. Thyroid Function Tests: Blood tests measuring levels of thyroid hormones (TSH, T3, T4).


Hypothyroidism is typically managed with thyroid hormone replacement therapy, usually in the form of a medication called levothyroxine. The goal of treatment is to restore normal thyroid hormone levels, alleviating symptoms and promoting overall well-being.
