A condition characterized by a dry, waxy type of swelling (edema) with abnormal deposits of mucopolysaccharides in the skin and other tissues. It is caused by a deficiency of thyroid hormones. The skin becomes puffy around the eyes and on the cheeks. The face is dull and expressionless with thickened nose and lips.
A syndrome that results from abnormally low secretion of thyroid hormones from the thyroid gland, leading to a decrease in basal metabolic rate. In its most severe form, there is an accumulation of mucopolysaccharides in the skin and edema, known as myxedema.
The symptoms may vary from person to person:
- Weight gain
- A puffy face
- Cold intolerance
- Joint and muscle pain
- Dry skin
- Dry, thinning hair
- Decreased sweating
- Heavy or irregular menstrual periods and fertility problems
- Slowed heart rate
To diagnose hypothyroidism, the doctor will do a physical exam, look at symptoms, and do thyroid tests. Treatment is with synthetic thyroid hormone, taken every day.
