What are the risks of untreated hypothyroidism (Thyroid) ?

 Untreated hypothyroidism can cause:

  • development of atherosclerosis as a result of the increased amount of lipids in the blood, and thus cardiovascular disease,
  • depression, anxiety disorders,
  • overweight,
  • sterility,
  • irregular menstrual cycles,
  • recurrent miscarriages,
  • neurological disorders,
  • developmental disorders in a child,
  • hypothermic coma , which is a life-threatening condition; manifested by a drop in body temperature below 35 ° C, slowing down the heart rate, slowing down breathing and drowsiness progressing to coma.

It is also crucial to remember that untreated hypothyroidism makes it very difficult to function on a daily basis due to difficulty with focus, forgetting about more and less important things, or chronic tiredness. As a result, the disease can have a major impact on one's quality of life.
