Hypothyroidism
 
The thyroid is a small butterfly-shaped gland situated in the
front lower portion of the throat around the windpipe (trachea).
It is made up of two lobes, one on each side of the trachea, with
a connecting portion called the isthmus. 
 
The thyroid is one of the endocrine glands and its function is to
convert iodine into thyroid hormones tiiodothyronine (T3), and
thyroxine (T4). The secretion of these two active compounds are
essential for the normal growth and development of children, and
for normal metabolic processes in adults. 
 
Hypothyroidism is a condition characterized by decreased activity
of the thyroid gland and its secretion. The deficiency of thyroxin
hormone secretion is caused primarily by a lack of sufficient iodine
in the diet. The thyroid gland requires iodine for proper function.
Iodine is found in eggs, milk, wine, shellfish, and salt. 
 
There are two types of hypothyroidism: Cretinism and myxedema. 
 
 
Cretinism is congenital hypothyroidism. An infant is born with
insufficient activity of the thyroid gland. It results from inadequate
iodine intake by the mother while pregnant. This condition leads to
the child becoming physically and mentally impaired. 
 
A milder in activity or deficiency of the thyroid gland and its secretion
may occur in adolescence or adult life, this is known as myxedema.
It may develop after Hashimoto disease, thyroid surgery, radiation
treatment of hyperthyroidism, post-partum thyroiditis, and failure of the
hypothalmus or pituitary gland. Symptoms of hypothyroidism includes
fatigue, hair loss, cold intolerance,weight gain, sluggishness, mental
dullness, and menstrual irregularities.
