Hypothyroidism is also referred to as a condition of underactive thyroid disease, which is a common disorder where the thyroid gland of a person does not make enough thyroid hormone. The thyroid gland is located in the front lower part of your neck. Hormones released by the gland travel through your bloodstream and affect nearly every part of your body, from your heart and brain, to your muscles and skin. Therefore hypothyroidism treatment includes a synthetic thyroid hormone pill that is prescribed by the doctor and this pill must be taken on a daily basis by the patient. However certain other medications can interfere with how your body absorbs synthetic thyroid hormone. The patient will also need regular blood tests to keep a check on the thyroid hormone levels. The causes and symptoms of hypothyroidism are often subtle and are not specific and are often attributed to aging. Patients with mild hypothyroidism may have no signs or symptoms. The symptoms generally become more obvious as the condition worsens and the majority of these complaints are related to a metabolic slowing of the body. However few of the symptoms are fatigue, depression and sudden weight gain and cold intolerance. Your primary care doctor generally can treat and monitor your condition, but some situations may require attention from an endocrinologist, a doctor who specializes in the endocrine system.
