Comprehensive and Dedicated Hypothyroidism Treatment in Provo

What You Need to Know

Hypothyroidism is a condition that results when the thyroid is not producing enough thyroid hormone. The underactive thyroid causes an imbalance of chemical reactions in the body. Since the thyroid produces the hormones the body needs to carry out basic functions, a drop in hormone levels due to hypothyroidism can lead to low energy levels.

In addition to low energy levels, other symptoms of
hypothyroidism include:

  • Extreme fatigue
  • Depression
  • Forgetfulness
  • Weight gain
  • Constipation
  • Joint or muscle pain
  • Puffy face
  • Excessive menstrual bleeding
  • Muscle weakness

These symptoms may be hard to recognize at first, but if they persist and intensify, it is advisable that you see a specialized thyroid physician for a proper diagnosis. Hypothyroidism can be diagnosed through blood tests. Contact us today to schedule an appointment at your earliest convenience.

Possible Causes for Hypothyroidism

There are many possible causes for hypothyroidism. Some of these causes include treatment for hyperthyroidism, radiation, thyroid removal, autoimmune disease and other medications such as lithium. In some cases, hypothyroidism can be caused by pregnancy, congenital disease, iodine deficiency, or a pituitary disorder.
