Ano ang hypothyroidism?

 

Sa hypothyroidism, hindi sapat ang nilalabas na thyroid hormones ng thyroid gland para maabot ang pangangailangan ng katawan. Dahil dito, bumabagal ang metabolismo kaya bumabagal din ang katawan sa mga tungkulin nito. Ang kadalasang sanhi ng hypothyroidism ay kakulangan ng iodine sa pagkain, naoperahang thyroid, autoimmune disease o radiation therapy sa thyroid.5
