good night doctor,

1 Answer:

Hello Faith, thank you for asking.

Hypothyroidism is a condition of decreased levels of thyroid hormone in the body. The most common causes of hypothyroidism are inflammation (inflammation) of the thyroid gland and decreased production of thyroid hormones after surgical removal of the thyroid or after treatment of hyperthyroidism.

The most common inflammation of the thyroid gland is Hashimoto's disease. This condition causes damage to thyroid gland cells, so the production of thyroid hormone is reduced.

In hypothyroidism due to post hyperthyroidism treatment, sometimes due to removal of the thyroid gland, the rest of the gland is not removed, unable to produce enough hormones. Or due to radiotherapy or immunotherapy treatment, many thyroid gland cells die and cannot produce thyroid hormones.

Symptoms vary greatly. Some people may not even experience symptoms at all. Most people have a number of symptoms such as rough and dry skin and dry hair, fatigue and recurrent muscle pain, difficulty losing weight, depression, constipation, hair loss, and not being able to stand the cold. But of course these symptoms can be caused by conditions other than thyroid gland disorders. For example, weight gain might be caused by lack of physical activity.

So to know for sure your thyroid hormone levels, please consult with a disease specialist in an endocrinologist. The doctor may need to check the levels of the hormones T3, T4, fT3, fT4, and TSH. Based on these results, the doctor will determine the status of your thyroid gland.

Thus the information that I can share, may be useful. Regards.
