To make a diagnosis, tests for hormone levels, ultrasound of the thyroid gland, and other tests may be conducted.


Treatment of hypothyroidism usually includes taking hormonal drugs, correcting diet, and lifestyle.


For the prevention of hypothyroidism, it is important to consume enough iodine and to promptly consult a doctor when symptoms of the disease appear.
