Is There A Link Between Hypothyroidism And Varicocele?
evening. I want to ask about hypothyroidism. I have been operating for vericocle. Before I have surgery, my body temperature has been experiencing cold to shiver and breathing is difficult … is there any connection with hypothyroidism with vericocele … how do I deal with hypothyroidism that has been cold or shivering and breathing is difficult …
Hello, thank you for the question to HealthReplies.com
Hypothyroidism or thyroid hormone deficiency does not cause varicocele, nor does varicocele cause hypothyroidism. Both are different diseases and are not related to each other.
First of all, I want to make sure in advance, have you indeed been diagnosed by your doctor as having hypothyroidism? If indeed you have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism, has your doctor done further tests to find out the cause of your hypothyroidism?
Hypothyroidism can be diagnosed by checking your thyroid hormone and thyroid stimulating hormone levels. If indeed you have undergone this examination and both of them lead to the condition of hypothyroidism, then it is necessary to do further tests to find the cause of your hypothyroidism. Some possible causes of hypothyroidism include:
autoimmune disease (Hashimoto's thyroiditis)
certain nutritional deficiencies (iodine deficiency)
excessive anti-thyroid drug effect
surgical removal of the thyroid gland
side effects of certain medical drugs
disorders of the pituitary gland in the brain
Therapy for each of the above conditions is certainly different. For example, in Hashimoto's disease or hypothyroidism that occurs due to removal of the thyroid gland and radiation therapy in the thyroid gland can be given synthetic thyroid hormones, in iodine deficiency can be given iodine supplementation, in hypothyroidism that occurs due to the use of antithyroid drugs (in patients with hyperthyroidism) can be adjusted medicine, and so on. Therefore you should do a doctor's examination first to find out the exact cause of your hypothyroidism.
So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
