Hypothyroidism, or an under active thyroid, is a condition in which the thyroid fails to produce enough essential hormones. Hypothyroidism has little to no symptoms in the beginning stages, but, if left untreated, the condition can cause a number of health complications such as obesity, joint pain and swelling, infertility, and heart disease. Thanks to modern medical advancements, accurate thyroid function tests are now available to help diagnose and treat hypothyroidism. Under the guidance of your physician, finding a safe and effective treatment plan for hypothyroidism is relatively simple.
