Hypothyroidism very vague symptoms but very damaging to your heart.

Hypothyroidism is a common endocrinologic disorder affecting nearly 4% of the population worldwide. Its definition is a lack of sufficient thyroid hormones within the blood; they are below the normal range. However, that range will vary between laboratories performing the exams and even countries. Also, the symptoms can vary from none or mild to severe and a life-threatening condition in some cases without treatment.

In the old days, most of the hypothyroidism cases were in a direct link diet. Iodine, which is an essential mineral for thyroid hormone production by the thyroid gland, lacked in the majority of the people’s diet. After an enormous global effort, critical and most consumed food was nourished with iodine, therefore solving that problem in most of the countries. However, right now, the most common cause of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto’s disease which is an autoimmune condition. Destruction by the own body’s protein takes place, slowly erasing any trace of the thyroid gland.

Nevertheless, hypothyroidism remains easy to diagnose and treat. The disease with widely available and effective treatment would be in control without further complications. Despite this, close monitoring by the doctor is always a necessity. If patients remain without therapy, complications may arise in the long term, mostly due to cardiovascular diseases along the way. Please utilize this hypothyroidism symptoms checker to assess if your symptoms are likely from this disease. It is free and would only take a few minutes.
