Addisons Disease
Adrenal Insufficiency that occurs when underactive adrenal glands produce insufficient cortisol and occasionally aldosterone
________ would inhibit the production of T3 and T4
Hashimotos Thyroiditis
___________ is an autoimmune disease in which the immune system attacks the thyroid gland. Body fails to recognize the Thyroid gland. Impairs function and destroys gland. May Cause Goiter
________is the enlargment of the Thyroid
Lack of functionion thyroid in newborns. Characterized by low BMR, very slow growth, sexual development and mental retardation
Iodine definciency
