Thyroid gland that is not active enough, called hypothyroidism, is far more common. It can make to gain weight, feel fatigued and have difficulty dealing with cold temperatures. If thyroid gland is too active, it makes more thyroid hormones than the body needs. That condition is hyperthyroidism. Too much thyroid hormone can make to lose weight, speed up heart rate and makes very sensitive to heat.
Treatment involves trying to reset the body’s metabolism to a normal rate. Thyroid hormones regulate how the body breaks down food and either uses that energy immediately or stores it for the future. In other words, thyroid hormones regulate our body’s metabolism.
Thyroid hormones influence almost every organ system in the body. They tell organs how fast or slow they should work. Thyroid hormones also regulate the consumption of oxygen and the production of heat.
Hypothyroidism can also be caused by a lack of iodine in the diet, which prevents the thyroid from making enough hormones. Sometimes it can arise when part, or all, of the thyroid has been removed for treatment of cancer or hyperthyroidism. It can also go with other inflammatory conditions. But sometimes, the disease destroys so much thyroid tissue that the gland can’t produce enough thyroid hormone. As a result, hypothyroidism sets in.

Though most common cause is a deficiency of iodine, as iodine is necessary for the production of thyroid hormone. If there is not enough iodine present in the body, the thyroid gland enlarges as it works harder to get the necessary iodine.
Autoimmune condition Hashimoto’s thyroiditis is an immune disease where the body produces antibodies against the cells and tissue of the thyroid gland. This leads to a diminished amount of thyroid hormone production that is further associated with other immune mediated diseases such as diabetes mellitus, pernicious anemia, celiac disease, rheumatoid arthritis and systemic lupus erythematous. In children, it leads to delays in growth and intellectual development, which is called cretinism in severe cases.
