Underactive Thyroid

An underactive thyroid gland (hypothyroidism) is where your thyroid gland doesn’t produce enough hormones.
Common signs of an underactive thyroid are tiredness, weight gain and feeling depressed.

About Thyroid gland

Thyroid Gland: Size, Shape & Function

The thyroid is a butterfly-shaped endocrine (hormone secreting) gland in the neck that is found on both sides of the trachea (windpipe). It secretes the hormone Thyroxine which controls the rate of metabolism. Thyroid gland is one of the many endocrine glands such as adrenal, pituitary, pancreas, testes, etc.

The thyroid weighs about 20-25 gms in an adult. It is butterfly shaped and it consists of two lobes which are connected together by a median isthmus as shown in the picture. It is located in the front of the neck and is situated just below the larynx or the Adam’s apple.

The function of the thyroid gland is to take up iodine from the foods that we eat and to convert it into thyroid hormones namely Thyroxine (T4) and Triiodothyronine (T3) and Calcitonin (which is involved in calcium metabolism). The cells of this gland combine iodine and the amino acid tyrosine to make T3 and T4. Later T3 and T4 are then released into the blood stream and are transported throughout the body where they control the general metabolism (conversion of oxygen and calories to energy). The regulation of the metabolism of every cell in the body requires thyroid hormones. The ratio of production of T4 and T3 is 80:20. However, T3 is about 4 times more potent than T4.

The production of thyroid hormones is under direct control of the pituitary gland. Pituitary is an endocrine gland which is situated at the base of the brain and it secretes certain vital hormones which includes TSH (Thyroid stimulating hormone) or Thyrotropin, besides others. When the level of thyroid hormones (T3 and T4) falls below the required amount, the pituitary gland secretes TSH which stimulates increased production of T3 and T4. As the levels of T3 and T4 keep rising in the blood, the pituitary senses this and reduces TSH production.

The hypothalamus is that part of the brain which produces TRH (Thyrotropin Releasing Hormone). TRH regulates the production of TSH by the pituitary, i.e. it has a regulatory control over the pituitary gland.

Underactive Thyroid: What is Hypothyroidism & Types

Deficiency of the thyroid hormone (THYROXINE) is called Hypothyroidism or Hypothyroid. It can affect any age group though it is most prevalent in older women. It is almost 10 to 20 times more common in females as compared to males. It is one of those conditions which are often present for many years before they can be recognized and treated effectively. Estimated one in every 50 females and one in 1000 men tend to suffer with this condition.
Underactive Thyroid is also called Hypothyroidism.

Hypothyroidism can be of two types:

  • Primary hypothyroidism: Here the problem lies in the thyroid gland and hence it fails to produce sufficient hormones due to certain causes.
  • Secondary hypothyroidism: In this type, the pituitary gland is at fault and it is unable to produce sufficient quantity of TSH. Lack of TSH in turn causes decreased production of T3 and T4 by the thyroid gland due to lack of stimulus from the pituitary.
HormoneNormal levels
T3 (Triiodothyronine)80-180 ng/dl
T4 (Thyroxine)4.6-12 ug/dl
TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone)0.5-6 uU/ml

Under active thyroid results from an inability of the Thyroid gland to produce adequate Thyroxine hormone. This could be largely due to genetic tendency. It is important to understand that since there is an inability or sluggishness of the thyroid gland, the treatment should ideally be aiming at stimulating the thyroid gland to do its job, rather than simply supplying deficient Thyroxine hormone from outside.

Causes of Underactive Thyroid (Hypothyroidism)

Primary Hypothyroidism or Underactive Thyroid can be caused due to several reasons such as follows:hronic active hepatitis: Patients of ulcerative colitis may have concurrent hepatitis C infection.

  • Iodine deficiency in food is one of the common causes especially in certain geographic areas of the world.
  • Inflammationof the thyroid gland which causes damage or death of the cells of thyroid leading to insufficient production of the hormones is a major cause of Primary hypothyroidism. The main cause of failure of thyroid gland in this manner is by Auto-immune Thyroiditis also known as Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis. In this disorder, the patients own immune system causes an inflammation of the gland.
  • Post-thyroidectomy: Surgical removal of the thyroid gland or a nodule for treating hyperthyroidism often makes the patient land up with Hypothyroidism after a few years.
  • Post-radiotherapy: Radiotherapy given for hyperthyroidism in order to destroy the hyperactivity of the gland. If larger number of cells are destroyed by the radioactive iodine, the patient may have insufficient hormone production by the remaining cells and this may cause hypothyroidism.

Secondary hypothyroidism is commonly caused by the following:

  • Failure of the pituitary gland to secrete Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH). This may be caused due to:
    • Tumor in the pituitary region
    • Infiltration of the pituitary by inflammatory cells from the immune system
    • Infiltration of the pituitary by foreign substances (such as iron in Hemochromatosis)Hypothalamic dysfunction
  • Risk factors for secondary hypothyroidism include being over 50 years old, being female, and having a history of pituitary or hypothalamic dysfunction.

Symptoms of Underactive Thyroid (Hypothyroidism)

The symptoms of hypothyroidism are frequently missed out and especially in elderly females these are mistaken to be symptoms of menopause. The beginning of the symptoms is often not noted markedly and hence the condition remains under-diagnosed.

Patient may experience few of the following symptoms:

  • Fatigue,exhaustion
  • Weakness, sluggishness
  • Unexplained weight gain or increased difficulty losing weight
  • Coarse, dry hair and/or thinning of hair
  • Hair loss
  • Dry, rough, pale and itchy skin
  • Cold intolerance (can’t tolerate the cold like those around you)
  • Constipation
  • Depression, mood swings
  • Irritability
  • Memory loss
  • Abnormal menstrual cycles, increased menstrual flow
  • Decreased libido
  • Infertility, miscarriages
  • Difficulty in concentrating
  • Thinning and/or falling out of sides of eyebrows
  • Puffy, swollen face and dull facial expressions
  • Hoarse voice and slow speech
  • Goiter (swelling of the thyroid gland)
  • Non-pitting edema (swelling)
  • Pitting edema (swelling) of the feet

Patient may have any kind of combination of the symptoms mentioned above depending on the duration and severity of the condition. Occasionally patient may be asymptomatic or may be having very subtle symptoms.

Diagnosis of Underactive Thyroid (Hypothyroidism)

Diagnosis of hypothyroidism can be established based on the results of tests done to measure the levels of these hormones in the blood. Commonly T4 and TSH in blood are measured. Since hypothyroidism is about deficiency or low levels of thyroid hormones, T4 (and T3) levels in the blood are below normal. TSH levels are high in case of Primary hypothyroidism and this can be explained as follows. Since the thyroid is not able to produce adequate amounts of T4 and T3, the pituitary senses this and increases TSH (Thyroid stimulating hormone) production which stimulates the thyroid to increase T4and T3 production.

In case of secondary hypothyroidism, the pituitary gland itself fails to produce enough TSH and hence the levels of TSH as well asT4 and T3 will be below normal in the blood.

HormoneNormal levels
T3 (Triiodothyronine)80-180 ng/dl
T4 (Thyroxine)4.6-12 ug/dl
TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone)0.5-6 uU/ml

Some important points to remember are:

  • Symptoms may not always correspond to the severity of the lab test abnormalities i.e. some patients may have severe hypothyroidism as revealed by their laboratory values but they may have very mild symptoms.
  • On the other hand, some patients may not have significantly abnormal values but they may be having significant symptoms.
  • It is important to remember that the treatment must not only correct the laboratory values but also make the patient feel better.
  • During the initial stages of Hypothyroidism, increased conversion of T4 to T3 occurs and hence T3 levels are maintained but T4 levels may be low to normal.

In order to diagnose Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis (as an etiology of primary thyroid failure), Anti-TPO antibody testing may be done. The Anti-TPO Ab which was previously referred to as the Antimicrosomal antibody (AMA) is a useful marker for the diagnosis and management of autoimmune thyroid disease.

Ultrasonography (USG) of the neck and thyroid can be used to detect nodules and infiltrative disease.

Complications of Underactive thyroid

If left untreated, hypothyroidism can lead to several other health issues.

Goiter:

A goiter is an enlargement of the thyroid gland. The symptoms of goiter include:
• Swelling in the throat, ranging from a small lump to a huge mass.
• Swallowing problems, if the goiter is large enough to press on the oesophagus (food pipe).
• Breathing problems, if the goiter is large enough to press on the trachea (windpipe).

Heart ailments:

Hypothyroidism may also be associated with an increased risk of heart disease, primarily because high levels of low-density lipoprotein (LDL) cholesterol- the ‘bad’ cholesterol can occur in people with an Underactive thyroid. Hypothyroidism can also lead to an enlarged heart and heart failure.

Mental health:

It may lead to slowness of the mental activity. Depression may occur early in hypothyroidism and may become more severe over time.

Myxedema:

This is a rare, life-threatening condition, which results due to prolonged, severe, untreated hypothyroidism. The symptoms include intense cold intolerance and drowsiness followed by profound lethargy and unconsciousness. The skin becomes dry and puffy.
A more severe condition referred to as Myxedema coma, if occurs in any case, would call for immediate medical help.

Concerning females and child birth related issues:

Infertility as well as miscarriage are the commonly encountered complications seen in females with untreated hypothyroidism. The babies born to women with untreated thyroid disease may have a higher risk of birth defects. These children are also more prone to serious intellectual and developmental problems.

Infants with untreated hypothyroidism present at birth are also at risk of serious problems with both physical and mental development. But if the condition is diagnosed within the first few months of life, the chances of normal development are excellent.

Myths and Facts about Underactive Thyroid (Hypothyroidism)

Myth:Homeopathy is simply herbal medicine.:

Interestingly, there are over 2000 medicines in the homeopathy pharmacopeia, of which about 100 are major broad spectrum medicines and about 300 important minor remedies used in daily practice. The method of selecting the correct homeopathic remedy is unique and scientific, in the sense that it is selected on the basis of patient’s ‘whole totalistic picture’. Here are some illustrative examples. It may be noted that complete description of any medicine is not within the scope of this web page and the description given herewith should be taken as an illustration and not as a prescribing guideline:

Natrum Muriaticum:

Natrum Muriaticum is an interesting example of homeopathic medicine prepared from a common food substance, the common salt, NaCl, sodium chloride. As a rule, the common salt undergoes a special medicine preparation process called potentization, whereby its inner healing power is activated to make available for the healing process.

Natrum Muriaticum is almost 200 years old, one of the most commonly used medicines in homeopathy, introduced by the founder of homeopathy Dr.Samuel Hahnemann, MD.

There are over 2000 possible indicating symptoms for Natrum Muriaticum. Here follows indications in brief:

Constitutionally, this medicine has a broad spectrum of action, useful for a wide range of disease processes, affecting skin, gastrointestinal organs, nose, lungs, kidney, metabolism, muscles, head, hormonal system, etc. It is one of the commonly used remedies for migraine, urticaria, eczema, lichen planus, Vitiligo, asthma, etc.

The mental personality of the patients requiring Natrum Muriaticum is as under:

Sincere sympathy is appreciated, though. Does not like to be pitied. Grief, unexpressed. Sympathetic. Revengeful thoughts when hurt.

It may be noted that the homeopathic medicines are largely broad spectrum. That means, the medicines are capable of inducing healing process in many kind of diseases. Every patient requiring a particular remedy will not have all the indications of the remedy. Again, every remedy may not cover all the symptoms of the patient. The selection of the remedy is made by the attending physician when he or she looks at the case as a whole.

Silica:

It is one of the splendid acts of homeopathy that substances labeled inert, have been proved to be a boon to humanity and one such example is that of remedy Silica. Silica occurs in abundance in nature and is chemically inert in its natural state, but with homeopathic mode of drug preparation called as potentization, the latent medicinal properties of this inert substance is activated and it works like a miracle.

Silica is a deep acting constitutional remedy, which was proved and incorporated by Mastermind and Founder of Homeopathy, ‘Dr. Hahnemann’. It is also one of the twelve wonders of the Schussler’s Tissue Remedies. In fact this remedy has helped Homeopaths world over to treat so-called surgical conditions gently without requiring knife

Silica is in true sense called as polychrest remedy as it has a broad spectrum of action, useful for a wide range of disease processes. There are thousands of indications of this deep acting constitutional medicine. Here are indications in brief:

Silica positively influences bones and joints, mucous membranes, skin, cellular tissue, nerves, glands, lungs, digestive system, etc. Silica is one of the frequently used medicines for complaints of eczema, lichen planus, herpes, urticaria, Vitiligo, asthmatic bronchitis, pneumonia, tuberculosis, styes and chalazion, trigeminal neuralgia, complaints of nails, tonsillitis, etc.

It is a wonderful medicine for complaints associated with pus formation and infection like boils, abscess, fissures, fistulas etc. In fact patients requiring silica usually have tendency of easy suppuration of skin injuries. Silica can positively influence nutrition and hence one of the prominent remedies used for rickets in children.

The mental personality of the patients requiring Silica is as under:

Silica is indicated for individuals, who are timid, nervous, and yielding in nature. Some of them may have lack of confidence and they feel very nervous and anxious to face stressful situations like public performance or exams. They are afraid of failure. However, once they undertake the task, they perform it efficiently. They have high sense of morality. Children requiring silica are usually headstrong and stubborn.

It may be noted that the homeopathic medicines are largely broad spectrum. That means, the medicines are capable of inducing healing process in many kind of diseases. Every patient requiring a particular remedy will not have all the indications of the remedy. Again, every remedy will not have all the symptoms of the patient. The attending physician makes the selection of the remedy when he or she looks at the case as a whole.

Kali Carbonicum:

Homeopathy is one such branch of medicine, which uses wide range of natural resources including plants and their products, various minerals and compounds, animal products, to prepare medicines. Kali-carb or Kali Carbonicum is very frequently used homeopathic medicine and is derived from potassium carbonate or K2CO3. With the special mode of homeopathic drug preparation called potentization, latent medicinal properties of this compound are aroused. Founder of Homeopathy, ‘Dr. Hahnemann’, has incorporated this remedy in Homeopathic Materia Medica.

Kali Carbonicum is in true sense called as polychrest remedy as it has a broad spectrum of action, useful for a wide range of disease processes. They are hundreds of different indications of this medicine, which are enlisted in Homeopathic Materia Medica. Here are indications in brief:

Kali Carbonicum positively influences lungs, digestive system, heart, liver, kidney, female reproductive system, skin, etc. Kali Carbonicum does wonders in cases of asthma, bronchitis, tuberculosis, pneumonia, hydrothorax, etc. It is one of the common medicines used for warts, eczema, urticaria, hair fall, trigeminal neuralgia, sciatica and low backache, hypothyroidism, heavy menstrual bleeding, etc. It is also useful for complaints of digestive system like acidity, piles, jaundice, and gastritis, etc.

The mental personality of patient requiring Kali Carbonicum is more or less as follows:

These individuals are usually nervous and anxious. They worry a lot: about future, about family members, about their disease. They are usually fearful individuals and they usually do not like to be alone. They are full of imaginary fears for instance they may worry, “What if the house should burn up!” These constant worries and fears make them restless and extremely irritable. Their mood can alternate, at one time good and quiet, at another excited and angry at trifles. Very sensitive to pain. Feel upset when things do not go according to their wishes.

It may be noted that the homeopathic medicines are largely broad spectrum. That means, the medicines are capable of inducing healing process in many kind of diseases. Every patient requiring a particular remedy will not have all the indications of the remedy. Again, every remedy will not have all the symptoms of the patient. The attending physician makes the selection of the remedy when he or she looks at the case as a whole.

Sepia:

It is the beauty of homeopathy that it can use wide range of natural sources ranging from plants and their products, minerals and compounds, and even animal products for its medicines. Sepia is one such example of medicine prepared from inky juice of Cuttle fish. The latent medicinal power of this juice is aroused by means of homeopathic potentization.

Sepia is one of the greatest contributions made to Homeopathy Materia Medica by founder of homeopathy, Dr. Hahnemann. So it goes without saying that this medicine is as old as homeopathy itself and is one of the favorite medicines of Homeopaths world-over.

Before elaborating the indications of this remedy I would like to share with you its birth-story. Dr. Hahnemann got the clue to initiate proving of this remedy from a patient, who was an artist and had regular habit of wetting his brush containing Indian ink with his own saliva. Every time he did so, a very small portion of the ink would naturally find its way into the stomach to be absorbed by the system. By and by, he developed certain chronic ailments. Hahnemann treated him with all the known similimums to his best of skills and ability but without any appreciable benefit. Excepting that his habit of wetting his brush with his own saliva and consequent affection of the ink, would have been the maintaining cause, the artist was advised to discontinue his profession. The artist obeyed him and he was completely redeemed of all his chronic ailments. This unique pleasant experience ultimately led Dr. Hahnemann to prove sepia for the benefit of generations of mankind.

Sepia, in true sense, is called as polycrest remedy as it has a broad spectrum of action, useful for a wide range of disease processes. There are thousands of indications enlisted in our Materia Medica about effectiveness of Sepia. To enumerate them briefly:

Sepia positively influences female genital organs, digestive system, liver, skin, glands, lungs, and nerves. It is one of the mot commonly used medicines for herpes, eczema, urticaria, lichen planus, ring worm, Vitiligo, hair fall, styes and chalazion, asthma, urinary tract infection. It is one of the best medicines for all possible gynecological and pregnancy related complaints.

The mental personality of a patient requiring sepia is more or less as follows:

Sepia is indicated for individuals who feel lack of interest and concern about their family members and friends, whom they loved once best. This stage comes from their mental or physical overexertion and fatigue. They usually have sad, depressed mood. Even while narrating their complaints they tend to weep. However, they feel annoyed when somebody consoles and sympathizes with them. They don’t like much of company and feel irritated about small affairs. They cannot bear disagreement to their opinion and decision. They feel mentally tired and do not feel like working. They are anxious individuals, constantly worrying about their health and imaginary problems.

It may be noted that the homeopathic medicines are largely broad spectrum. That means, the medicines are capable of inducing healing process in many kind of diseases. Every patient requiring a particular remedy will not have all the indications of the remedy. Again, every remedy will not have all the symptoms of the patient. The attending physician makes the selection of the remedy when he or she looks at the case as a whole.

Pulsatilla:

‘Pulsatilla nigricans’ is a plant belonging to ranunculaceae family from which this homeopathic medicine is prepared. This plant is widely known as windflower.

Pulsatilla, was proved and incorporated in Homeopathic material medica by Mastermind and Founder of Homeopathy, ‘Dr. Hahnemann.’ It goes without saying that this medicine is as ancient as that of homeopathy and still it is one of the most favorite medicines of Homeopaths world-over.

There are more than thousands and fifty indications of this remedy enlisted in homeopathic Materia Medica. It is in true sense a polychrest remedy, which has a broad spectrum of action, useful for a wide range of disease processes.

Every patient requiring a particular remedy will not have all the indications of the remedy. Again, every remedy will not have all the symptoms of the patient. The attending physician makes the selection of the remedy when he or she looks at the case as a whole.

Staphysagria:

Though homeopathy uses wide range of natural resources including plants, minerals and compounds, animal derivatives, the majority of the remedies are derived from plants and their components. One such example is medicine Staphysagria, which is prepared from seeds of plant Deliphinium Staphysagria. The latent medicinal powers of this plant are aroused by process of homeopathic mode of drug preparation called potentization.

Staphysagria was proved and incorporated in Homeopathic Materia Medica by our Mastermind and Founder of homeopathy, ‘Dr. Hahnemann’. So this remedy is as old as that of Homeopathy and still is one of the topmost in the list of most favorite medicines of Homeopaths world over.

Staphysagria is in true sense a polychrest remedy, which has a broad spectrum of action, useful for a wide range of disease processes. There are hundreds of indications of this medicine enlisted in our Materia Medica. Here follows indications in brief:

Staphysagria positively influence brain, mind, stomach and bowels, lungs, skin, genito-urinary system, bones and joints, teeth etc. It is one of the most frequently used medicines for Vitiligo, eczema, urticaria, herpes, warts, hair fall, recurrent styes and chalazion, tonsillitis, Trigeminal neuralgia, etc. It is effective for toothache, prostate gland complaints etc.

The mental personality of individuals requiring Staphysagria is more or less as follows:

These are the individuals, who do not allow themselves to express their emotions. Even if they feel angry they control themselves and suppress their anger and will not express their excitement. However these suppressed emotions find their expressions in the form of physical complaints. They may almost become speechless on an argument, but their body may start trembling with anger. They are very sensitive to insults and slights and to what others say about them. Some time instead of this enforced control, they may have violent outburst of emotions. Child requiring Staphysagria may cry for many things but refuses them when offered. Such children may develop some complaints after punishment or scolding.

It may be noted that the homeopathic medicines are largely broad spectrum. That means, the medicines are capable of inducing healing process in many kind of diseases. Every patient requiring a particular remedy will not have all the indications of the remedy. Again, every remedy will not have all the symptoms of the patient. The attending physician makes the selection of the remedy when he or she looks at the case as a whole.

Carcinocin:

It is the beauty of homeopathy that not only plants, minerals and compounds, animal derivatives, but also some of bacteria, viruses are also used to prepare special group of medicine called Nosode. When such agents undergo homeopathic mode of drug preparation called as potentisation, they serve to ailing humanity with their curative powers. One of the very frequently used Nosode in homeopathy is Carcinocin, which is prepared from the material derived from carcinoma of breast.

Carcinocin is a deep acting constitutional drug having loads of indications and broad spectrum of action, useful for a wide range of disease processes. It positively influences mind, lungs, heart, eyes, skin, bones and joints, etc. It is one of commonly used medicine for diseases like urticaria, lichen planus, Vitiligo, styes and chalazion, hair fall, asthma, insomnia, etc. Homeopathy believes that the genetic predisposition or inherent susceptibility is usually root cause of wide array of diseases. Hence Homeopaths institute medicines having efficiency to eliminate such root cause. One such medicine used to achieve this purpose is Carcinocin.

The mental personality of individuals requiring Carcinocin is as follows:

These are individuals who are very meticulous and work with preciseness. They are compassionate and would like to help others. They feel nervous and tensed before stressful situations like appearing for exams. They enjoy music and love dancing.
