Hypothyroidism and Thyromine

Hypothyroidism is a very common condition in which the thyroid gland does not make enough thyroid hormone which creates deficiency to the body of the thyroid hormone. The condition is more common in women than in men, and its incidence increases with age. There are many disorders that result in hypothyroidism. These disorders may directly or indirectly involve the thyroid gland. Because thyroid hormone affects growth, development, and many cellular processes, inadequate thyroid hormone has widespread consequences for the body. The symptoms of hypothyroidism are often restrained. They are not specific, which means that they can mimic the symptoms of many other conditions and are often attributed to aging.  Patients with mild hypothyroidism may have no signs or symptoms at all. But to those with chronic or sever hypothyroidism, the symptoms generally become more obvious as the condition worsens and the majority of these complaints are related to a metabolic slowing of the body. Common symptoms are depression, fatigue, weight gain, cold intolerance, dry skin and hair, decreased concentrations and unclear aches and pains.  As the disease becomes more severe, there may be puffiness around the eyes, a slowing of the heart rate, a drop in body temperature and heart failure but in its most profound form, severe hypothyroidism may lead to a life-threatening coma.  There is no known treatment for hypothyroidism but there are medications and supplements available in the market to prevent its symptoms.  One of the most common supplements is known as Thyromine which helps the patient with its weight gain problem associated with hypothyroidism.
