Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland does not make or release sufficient thyroid hormone. It is usually not due to primary deficiency of iodine, but results from atrophy of the thyroid gland. The thyroid gland releases many vital hormones that travel throughout the blood stream and reach the receptors that are found throughout the body. The clinical manifestations are more helpful in the diagnosis. A low level of T3 and T4 and high TSH is found in hypothyroidism. The usual complaints of hypothyroidism are tiredness, lethargy, constipation, depression and weight gain.
