In this lecture, Professor Zach Murphy will present on Hypothyroidism. We will discuss the pathophysiology, including the decreased production of thyroid hormones and its effects on the body's metabolic rate. The lecture will include a discussion on the clinical manifestations, such as fatigue, weight gain, cold intolerance, and constipation. The digital presentation will begin with the diagnostic approach, highlighting the importance of TSH and free T4 measurements. Finally, we will review management strategies for Hypothyroidism, emphasizing the use of levothyroxine to normalize thyroid hormone levels and improve symptoms.
