A thyroid test will determine if there is hypothyroidism. The thyroid test responds to elevated TSH values, which indicate thyroid dysfunction. Thyroid dysfunction is quite common. Hypothyroidism occurs in 0.5% of the population and is latent at 2-3%.
The thyroid gland regulates the rate at which the body burns nutrition and forms important hormones that regulate the body’s metabolism. Lack of thyroid hormone slows down the metabolism, often followed by fatigue, mood swings, memory problems, frostbite, weight gain, constipation, slow heart rate, dry skin. Swelling of the thyroid gland is often considered a nodule that appears on the neck. Swelling in the eyes, face and legs is also common. Symptoms begin slowly and slowly worsen over time.
Hyperthyroidism occurs when the gland produces too many TSH hormones (thyroid stimulating hormone)
In hypothyroid insanation, gland does not produce enough TSH hormones for the body’s needs. When the body needs more thyroid hormones, TSH thyroid hormone production increases.
