Hypothyroidism, also called “underactive thyroid,” is a condition, more common with women and those over 50, in which the thyroid does not produce and release the appropriate amounts of thyroid hormones. This is typically caused by a condition called thyroiditis in which the thyroid gland’s cells are damaged due to inflammation. The initial inflammation can result from pregnancy, birth defect, cancer treatment (radiation), a cold or respiratory infection, an immune system attack on the thyroid gland itself, and many other conditions and treatments.
When people have hypothyroidism, their doctors typically recommend lifelong thyroid hormone replacement therapy. Excessive sweating, shaking, restlessness, heart palpitations, and sudden weight loss can all result from too high a dosage of thyroid hormone, so it is important that patients be mindful of this and discuss any such issues with their doctors. Too low a dose can also be a major problem, causing a Myxedema coma. Such a coma is a major medical emergency and requires immediate medical attention, often including life support and intensive care treatment.
A HYPOTHYROIDISM MEDICAL ID COULD SAVE YOUR LIFE
Because of the sudden and serious nature of some of the side effects of thyroid hormone replacement therapy, people with hypothyroidism should always wear medical ID necklaces or bracelets to make first responders aware of their condition(s), medications, and any additional or complicating factors. If you or someone you love has hypothyroidism, medical ID jewelry is a true necessity. We recommend listing your name, diagnosis(es), any medications, all allergies, and emergency contact numbers.
