As one of the major endocrine glands in the human body, we depend on the hormones released by our thyroid for many of our life functions. However, for people living with hypothyroidism this becomes a constant battle simply to survive. Canadian Disability Benefits can help you negotiate the confusing application process in order to receive the money you are entitled to from the Canadian Disability Tax Benefits program.
What is Hypothyroidism?
Hypothyroidism defines any condition in which a person’s thyroid gland does not produce enough of certain hormones which the human body requires. While the scientific names of the two major hormones affected by hypothyroidism are thyroxine and triiodothyronine, they are more commonly referred to as T4 and T3 respectively. A recent study has suggested that hypothyroidism effects as many as 8% of the world population.
Symptoms of Hypothyroidism
Just as hypothyroidism can be caused by a vast number of different conditions and diseases, the symptoms can vary greatly depending on the severity of the hormone deficiencies. In its earliest stages, hypothyroidism frequently exhibits very minor symptoms or is completely asymptomatic. However, simply because there are no immediate symptoms, this does not mean you cannot qualify for benefits under the Canadian Disability Tax Credit program. In order to prevent the symptoms from becoming severe, it is important to properly monitor and treat the disorder which can require a significant amount of medical and financial resources.
