Hypothyroidism treatment

A hypothyroidism is the insufficient production of hormones by the thyroid gland, disturbing the metabolism in the organism. This disease can be caused by the thyroid disorder or the disorders of the pituitary gland or hypothalamus, regulating its functioning.

CAUSES AND SYMPTOMS OF HYPOTHYROIDISM

The causes of development of the hypothyroidism may include the iodine deficiency, complications after traumas or operations, congenital thyroid pathologies, consequences of the intake of some preparations, stresses as well as tumor, inflammation, brain hemorrhage or injury.

If the disease is caused by the thyroid problems, then the hypothyroidism is called primary; if the disease is caused by the disorder in the functioning of the pituitary gland or hypothalamus (regulating the production of thyroid hormones) – secondary.

The hypothyroidism is accompanied by such signs:

  • general weakness, drowsiness;
  • dry mouth;
  • quick fatigability;
  • gastrointestinal disorders;
  • hair loss;
  • menstrual disorders;
  • dizziness;
  • headaches;
  • excess body fat.

It is important to understand that such symptoms can be caused by the large number of other diseases; that is why it is important to undergo a full complex of diagnostic examinations, recommended by the doctor, for establishing a correct diagnosis.

HYPOTHYROIDISM DIAGNOSIS AND TREATMENT

In case of suspicion for hypothyroidism, the doctors order:

  • thyroid ultrasound;
  • general blood count;
  • biochemistry;
  • bacterial culture test;
  • blood lipids.

The hypothyroidism treatment consists in correction of the hormonal background. The endocrinologist will choose a dose and duration of the intake of hormonal preparations, depending on the stage of the disease and specifics of the patient’s organism. The hypothyroidism sometimes occurs on the background of autoimmune diseases.

As the hormones regulate the functioning of all organs and systems of the organism, the disturbance of their production can cause complications in different organs. That is why if you have thyroid problems, it is recommended undergoing examination by the therapist, gastroenterologist, proctologist, dietarian and surgeon.
