Unexplained infertility, or the cause of recurrent miscarriage, may be the result of subclinical hypothyroidism. Recognizing and treating a thyroid problem is essential to both conception and reducing the chance of miscarriage. Hypothyroidism is common in the female population. With proper medication therapy, up to 30 percent of women treated for hypothyroidism are able to successfully save and carry a normal pregnancy.

Accurate blood testing is crucial in diagnosing the health of your thyroid gland. Hypothyroidism is treated successfully with natural thyroid hormone supplementation.Dosages of natural thyroid medication are gradually increased until the patient’s symptoms improve. Blood tests are regularly monitored to ensure that the medication is being absorbed and circulated in the patient’s blood stream. A misinterpretation of medication and circulation can lead to a misdiagnosis.Symptoms of HypothyroidismSlow deep tendon reflexes is a common, significant characteristic of hypothyroidism. This symptom occurs when there is not enough active thyroid hormone in the nerve cells. The metabolism of the nerve is reduced and the conduction of an impulse down a nerve is slower than if the cell’s metabolic function is normal.
