Abstract:The article focuses on a medical study which claims that mild hypothyroidism can double the risk of heart failure. 3,000 individuals, 65 years of age or older, were involved in the study whose results indicated that those with mild to low levels of the thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) were twice as likely to develop congestive heart failure. Other studies prove that both hyperthyroidism and clinically detectable hypothyroidism can cause heart problems.
