Hypothyroidism

Back


The Hypothyroidism Diagnosis Information Page is a collaborative project of NeedyMeds and the MAGIC Foundation. It is intended to provide information on hypothyroidism and to help those with hypothyroidism find assistance paying for their medications.

Hypothyroidism is a deficiency in the secretion of the thyroid hormones and usually is caused by an abnormality of the immune system that results in damage and destruction of the thyroid gland. This process results either in loss of thyroid tissue or an enlargement of the thyroid. During childhood and adolescence the hypothyroid patient presents either with an enlarged thyroid gland, also known as a goiter, or diminution in the rate of growth in height. In most instances there is no pain or tenderness associated with thyroid diseases, although patients occasionally complain of difficulty in swallowing as if there were a lump in their throat. The treatment of hypothyroidism, regardless of the cause, is easy and inexpensive.
