Hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism results from low metabolic activity in the thyroid gland. Hormones produced by the thyroid gland are found in less concentrations or not at all, leading to serious complications. It can be asymptomatic or present with fatigue, weight gain, cold sensitivity, constipation or bradycardia. Some people may experience a goiter which is usually quite noticeable. Levothyroxine is the standard medication used to treat hypothyroidism and reverse its symptoms.
