The Thyroid produces numerous related hormones: Thyroxine (also known as T4), and Liothyronine (also known as T3) are the most important of the Thyroid hormones. These help to control the way your body uses energy. Hypothyroidism means you have an under active thyroid gland, or in other words your thyroid is not making enough thyroid hormone.
T4: The most well-known of the thyroid hormones, heats the body and speeds metabolism (of fats, proteins, and carbohydrates) and heart rate. At best, T4 is only about one-quarter the potency of T3. T4 can be converted to T3 by some cells in the body, but some people can have troubles performing this and therefore have symptoms of hypothyroidism.
T3: the most active form of thyroid hormone, also heats the body and speeds metabolism and heart rate.

A simple blood test can diagnose if the thyroid hormone level is too low.
TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) test. This is the most important and sensitive test for hypothyroidism. It measures how much of the thyroid hormone thyroxine (T4) the thyroid gland is being asked to make.
Appropriate diet can decrease inflammation and help reduce immune response in the case of Hashimotos or Autoimmune thyroiditis. In some cases, Detoxification and elimination of allergic or sensitive foods can have an impact as well.
