WHAT DOES HYPOTHYROIDISM MEAN IN ENGLISH?

hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism, from hypo- and thyroid, often called underactive thyroid or low thyroid, is a common endocrine disorder in which the thyroid gland does not produce enough thyroid hormone. It can cause a number of symptoms, such as tiredness, poor ability to tolerate cold, and weight gain. In children, hypothyroidism leads to delays in growth and intellectual development, which is called cretinism in severe cases. The diagnosis of hypothyroidism, when suspected, can be confirmed with blood tests measuring thyroid-stimulating hormone and thyroxine levels. Worldwide, too little iodine in the diet is the most common cause of hypothyroidism. In countries with enough dietary iodine, the most common cause of hypothyroidism is the autoimmune condition Hashimoto's thyroiditis. Less common causes include the following: previous treatment with radioactive iodine, injury to the hypothalamus or the anterior pituitary gland, certain medications, a lack of a functioning thyroid at birth or previous thyroid surgery.

Definition of hypothyroidism in the English dictionary

The definition of hypothyroidism in the dictionary is insufficient production of thyroid hormones by the thyroid gland. Other definition of hypothyroidism is any disorder, such as cretinism or myxoedema, resulting from this.
