By NFL.com/sports reporter Jeremy Fowler,AP NFL.COM/sports writer Jeremy Fowler examines the potential for the potential onset of a new syndrome, hypothyroidism, in the NFL.
What is hypothyroxinemias?
A hypothyrosinemia is the condition in which the body does not produce enough thyroid hormone to control the rate at which thyroid cells release their own hormone.
The condition can be caused by an injury or illness, medications, or an autoimmune disease.
The diagnosis can be made by a doctor with an exam or a thyroid biopsy.
Hypothyroid syndrome is sometimes referred to as hypothyronism.
A hypothyrogenic disorder is a disorder where the body doesn’t produce enough hormone.
It is a condition that is caused by a defect in the thyroid gland that results in abnormal amounts of thyroid hormone.
How common is hypo-thyroid syndrome?
About 1 in 4,000 Americans have hypothyroids, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
The disorder affects about 2.4 million people.
About 0.5 percent of Americans have mild hypothyrotism, a condition in most that is mild or no symptoms.
Symptoms of hypothyrogensia include fatigue, lethargy, mood swings, fatigue, and decreased energy, according the Mayo Clinic.
A person can have a mild or moderate hypothyrovirus (hiv-1) or an overactive thyroid (ov-1).
People with hypothyrosis have an increased risk of getting thyroid cancer.
