What is hypothyroidism?
Hypothyroidism1 refers to an underactive thyroid gland. The thyroid gland can’t make enough thyroid hormone to keep the body’s organs working as they should. There are different causes for hypothyroidism, including Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, surgical removal of part or all of the thyroid gland, radiation, thyroiditis (inflammation of the thyroid gland), and other less common causes.
How is hypothyroidism treated?
Hypothyroidism is treated by replacing the deficient amount of thyroid hormone. Levothyroxine (T4) is the recommended preparation of choice2. Some patients may require the addition of T3 (liothyronine) to feel their best.
What is hyperthyroidism?
Hyperthyroidism3 refers to a thyroid gland producing and releasing an abnormally high level of thyroid hormone. Causes of hyperthyroidism include Graves disease, toxic multinodular goiter, toxic adenoma, medications, and other less common causes.
How is hyperthyroidism treated?
Treatment is guided by the underlying cause of the hyperthyroidism and the benefits and risks of each treatment option. Treatment options may include an oral medication to decrease the production of thyroid hormone (methimazole or propylthiouracil), radioactive iodine therapy, or surgical removal of all or part of the thyroid gland.
