Hypothyroidism is a condition caused by too little thyroid hormone in the body. Symptoms include fatigue, weight gain, intolerance to cold, decreased appetite, constipation, hoarseness, menstrual irregularities, dry skin and hair changes.
The body's condition when thyroid hormone levels are insufficent for normal body function. Symptoms include slowed metabolism, fatigue, mental problems, hypoglycemia, problems breathing, slow heartbeat, and high cholesterol.

A functional disturbance in your Great Dane's thyroid gland. If diagnosed, your Great Dane will have very little thyroid activity, or none at all. Symptoms of hyperthyroidism in Great Dane's usually include: dry or coarse coat; awkward and/or slow movement. Treatment is available.
A medical condition that occurs when the thyroid gland does not produce enough of the metabolism-regulating hormones that are required for proper metabolism levels. In iguanas, this is most often caused by the feeding of too many cruciferous plants (see above), which contain goiterogens which interfere with normal thyroid function. Symptoms of hypothyroidism are decreased appetite, decreased growth while maintaining a "chubby" look, and lethargy, or decreased activity levels.
A condition characterized by insufficient thyroid hormone ( T4 or thyroxine), which may lead to delayed growth and mental retardation. Treatment consists of administering a thyroid tablet daily, which prevents the onset of these symptoms.
The insufficient production of thyroid hormones. 2 A pathological condition resulting from thyroid insufficiency, which may lead to cretinism of myxedema ? Calcium 2 TBL ? Iodine as directed ? Magnesium 4 TBL am and pm ? Potassium 1 TBL am ? Substitute Sea salt for table salt ? Vitamin B complex stress formula as directed
In adults, it is most common in women and is characterised by decrease in basal metabolic rate, tiredness and lethargy, sensitivity to cold and menstrual disturbances. If untreated, it progresses to full blown myxoedema. In infants, severe hypothyroidism leads to cretinism. In juveniles, the manifestations are intermediate, with less severe mental and developmental retardation and only mild symptoms of the adult form. When due to pituitary deficiency of thyrotropin secretion it is called secondary hypothyroidism.
Underproduction of thyroid hormone by the thyroidgland. The resulting lowered metabolism can interfere with the normal breakdownof hormones and may lead to lethargy. Women may suffer from elevated levelsof prolactin and estrogen, which can interfere with fertility.
The medical definition is a thyroid hormone secretion deficiency. We expand the definition to mean any deficiency in thyroid gland activity. Hormone levels may be normal and yet thyroid activity can be low. This is due to other imbalances that prevent the thyroid hormone from acting.
A condition in which the thyroid gland produces an insufficient amount of thyroid hormone. The resulting lowered metabolism interferes with the normal breakdown of 'old' hormones and causes lethargy. Men will suffer from a lower sex drive and elevated prolactin (see Hyperprolactinemia), and women will suffer from elevated prolactin and estrogen, both of which will interfere with fertility.

Hypothyroidism is the disease state in humans and animals caused by insufficient production of thyroid hormone by the thyroid gland. There are several distinct causes for chronic hypothyroidism in human beings, the most common being Hashimoto's thyroiditis (an autoimmune disease) and radioiodine therapy for hyperthyroidism. Historically, iodine deficiency was the most common cause of hypothyroidism world-wide.
