Hypothyroidism - Overview

At Dr Batra’s™ clinics, we have had lot of patients coming to us to talk about their hair problems or stubborn weight gain. However, after systematically examining the patient’s medical history and confirming through laboratory tests, many of them have been diagnosed with hypothyroidism.

Hypothyroidism is a condition in which your thyroid gland does not produce enough important hormones. Having low thyroid hormone levels affects your whole body by upsetting the normal balance of chemical reactions in the body.

A patient suffering from hypothyroidism starts gaining weight over a period of time, and feels exhausted and depressed, not realising the reason behind these symptoms.

Thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland situated at the base of the front of the neck. The gland produces hormones necessary for many important functions of the body; for example, metabolism. The thyroid gland maintains the rate at which the body uses fats and carbohydrates, helps control body temperature, influences heart rate and helps regulate protein production.

Although older people - especially women aged 60 and above - are more susceptible to getting hypothyroidism, people of any age can get it. It may also be genetic in some cases. As the disease progresses, the patient starts to experience various symptoms; chiefly, obesity, joint pains, digestion problems, irregular menses in women and hair loss. Other symptoms include weakness, exhaustion, depression, dry skin, brittle nails, low tolerance towards cold, constipation, and even memory problems.

As the symptoms occur slowly over time, it is easy to neglect them, believing they are mere signs of ageing.

The good news is that accurate diagnostic tests for hypothyroidism are available. Post diagnosis, homeopathy can help control the symptoms of hypothyroidism in a very safe and effective manner.


  • Approximately 1 in 10 adults suffer from hypothyroidism.
  • Adults in the age group of 35 and above are found to be at a higher risk of hypothyroidism.
  • Women are three times more prone to getting hypothyroidism.
  • Almost a third of hypothyroidism patients are unaware of their condition.
  • One among every five women over the age of 60 suffers from hypothyroidism.

Causes of Hypothyroidism

The most common cause of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto's thyroiditis, an autoimmune condition where the body creates antibodies that destroy parts of the thyroid gland. Surgical removal and certain medications can also cause hypothyroidism.Read More

Homeopathic Treatment for Hypothyroidism

Conventional medication for hypothyroidism entails taking supplements of hormones whereas homeopathic treatment for thyroid stimulates better functioning of the thyroid gland so that it can produce hormones on its own.Read More

Had an amazing experience with Dr. Batra clinic. I visited here seeking help for hairfall, thyroid and PCOD all of which got into control in a span of 2 months. I'm still continuing here and I recommend this to everyone. Dr. Kavita Nayak is treating me in my journey. The way they give out their medicine is impeccable. No use of hands it is completely machine made.
