Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland produces an abnormally low amount of thyroid hormone.
Hypothyroidism symptoms usually develop incredibly slowly; it can take years for them to show up. Also, some symptoms mimic symptoms of other diseases, such as fibromyalgia and rheumatoid arthritis.
Hypothyroidism symptoms include constipation, depression, and fatigue. Pale, dry skin; sensitivity to cold; joint pain; elevated cholesterol levels, irregular periods; brittle fingernails and hair; and unexplained weight gain are other common symptoms.
Thyroid can be detected by thyroid test. If these tests show an elevated thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) and low levels of thyroid hormones, like free T4, total T3, or free T3, it may be an indication that you have hypothyroidism. Typically, if you have a low level of T4 along with a high level of TSH, you have hypothyroidism.
