Introduction

Lesson 1

The thyroid affects nearly every organ in the body. The most common thyroid condition is Hypothyroidism.

  • Hypothyroidism occurs when an under-active thyroid produces too little thyroid hormone
  • There are three classifications of hypothyroidism:
    1. Thyroid Failure
    2. Deficit in TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone)
    3. Deficit in TRH (thyrotropin-releasing hormone)
  • Hashimoto’s disease is a chronic attack from the body’s own cells that prevents the release of adequate T3 and T4, which play a critical role in metabolism
