Hypothyroidism and Homeopathy

Hypothyroidism is a clinical condition resulting from decreased circulating levels of t4 (Thyroxine)  and/or t3 (triiodothyronine).
Hypothyroidism is known as under-active thyroid. It occurs when your thyroid gland does not make enough thyroid hormone. It means you have low thyroid activity.

Hypothyroidism often begins slowly. Its symptoms can be mistaken for stress, depression, or other health problems.

Common symptoms include:
· Fatigue, Tiredness
· Unplanned weight gain.
· Muscle weakness. Muscle aches, cramps, tenderness, or stiffness.
· Increased sensitivity to cold.
· Constipation.
· Pale, dry skin.
· Puffy face.
· Hoarse voice, ataxia
· Joint pain, stiffness, or swelling.
· Changes in menstrual patterns, such as heavier flow.
· An enlarged thyroid gland (called a goiter), which can appear as swelling at the base of the neck.
· Brittle hair and fingernails.
· Forgetfulness or confusion.

Diagnosis -

Contact your doctor if you have symptoms of an under-active thyroid. They will do a blood test to measure the amount of thyroid hormone and TSH in your blood. This confirms the diagnosis.

If it is not treated, hypothyroidism can lead to other health problems. These include:
· Goiter - This can cause a swollen lump on your neck called a goiter. A goiter can affect your appearance and can even make it hard for you to swallow or eat.
· Obesity - Weight gain is common in people as your hormone levels affect your metabolism.
· Heart disease - It causes high levels of bad(LDL) cholesterol.
· Mental health issues- It can cause depression.
· Myxedema- A rare, life-threatening condition. Symptoms are intense sensitivity to cold and drowsiness or severe lethargy. This can lead to unconsciousness and a coma. See a doctor right away if you notice these warning signs.
· Birth defects- Babies who are born to women who have untreated hypothyroidism can have birth defects.
· Infertility - It can make it hard for some women to get pregnant. It also can be harmful to the mother and baby during pregnancy. Most doctors test thyroid hormone levels at this stage.
