Hypothyriodism

 

 

Hypothyriodism affect 1.5 to 2 percent of women and just 0.2 percent of men.  

 

Hypothyriodism is the thyroid's inability to produce enough thyroxine to meet the body's needs. 

 

Causes of hypothyriodism: 

 

To understand the causes of hypothyriodism, it's necessary to know how he thyroid's hormones are produced.

Hypothalamus and pituary glands in the brain control how much hormone the thyroid gland will produce. They know when the amount of thyroid hormone in the blood is low or high. 

 

When thyroid hormone levels are low, the pituitary gland asks the thyroid to produce more by secreting a hormone called TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone). 

 

When the thyroid hormone level rises, the pituitary gland asks thyroid gland to stop its producing activity. 

 

If thyroid activity is normal and well-controlled, you will never have too low neither too high levels of thyroid hormones. 

 

When someone suffer from this disease, TSH levels are generally higher than normal (the pituitary gland is trying to stimulate production of thyroid hormones).It is primary hypothyriodism. 

 

Another problem that can cause it: 

 

If the pituitary doesn't produce sufficient TSH, the thyroid gland will "think" there is enough thyroid hormones into the body and slow down its production. This is secondary hypothyriodism. 

 

Its Symptoms:

Other symptoms: 

 

  •  Dry skin

Treatment of hypothyriodism: 

 

 Hypothyriodism treatment has two goals: 

 

  •  Relieve the symptoms caused by low thyroid hormone 
  •  Raise the blood level of thyroxine back up to normal. 

 

In conventional therapy, doctor prescribes synthetic hormones or dessicated thyroid glandular tissue. 

 

But it's important to use nutritional supplement formulated to treat hypothyriodism. They are valuable alternative to conventional treatment.  

 

Their effectiveness comes from the ingredient they contain. These are: 

 

  •  Bladderwrack or fucus vesiculosis: marine plant that is a rich source of iodine. Effective for obesity and hypothyroidism. Also contains potassium, magnesium, calcium, iron, zinc, and other minerals. It stimulates the thyroid gland. 

 

  •  Acetyl L-Tyrosine: Affects the production of dopamine. 

 

  •  Iodine 450 mcg: important mineral for good thyroid function 

 

  •  Potassium (potassium aspartate): Helps to treat the fatigue associated with thyroxine deficiencies. 

 

  •  Avena sativa: treats depression, low libido and lack of energy, as well as hypothyroidism. 

 

  •  Coleus forskohlii: treats high blood pressure. Also acts to stimulate the thyroid to release thyroid hormones.
