What You Should Know About Hypothyroidism

What is hypothyroidism?

Hypothyroidism is a condition where the body fails to produce enough thyroid hormones. The thyroid gland, located at the front of your neck, produces these hormones and supplies them to different organs in order to maintain healthy function.

Your thyroid helps regulate basic bodily functions such as breathing and digestion. Without adequate amounts of thyroid hormone present, these systems gradually slow down until they stop altogether.

This deficiency mostly affects older women, usually those over 60 years old. They're often diagnosed through routine blood tests or upon experiencing symptoms such as fatigue and weight gain.

If you were just recently diagnosed with this condition, there are some things you should know about its treatment methods: most are easy, safe, and highly effective; all based on supplying deficient hormone levels artificially until they become balanced again.
