Hypothyroidism is a thyroid disease brought on by under active thyroid function, where production of thyroid hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) is insufficient. Risk is greater where there is an iodine deficiency or exposure to iodine-131. In patients with healthy levels of iodine, hypothyroidism may be caused by Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, by a deficiency of hormones from the hypothalamus or hypophysis (pituitary gland), or by the lack of a thyroid gland.
