Disability Benefit Claims for Hypothyroidism
The thyroid gland – which is found in the neck – produces the hormones thyroxin and triiodothyronine that regulate and control the body’s growth and metabolism. Because these hormones affect two key functions of the body, they in turn have an impact on other processes such as heart rate, body temperature, weight gain, muscle integrity as well as energy levels. Hypothyroidism is a condition where the thyroid gland produces low levels of hormones which in turn impact on the various functions of the body. This condition is generally caused by an attack of the immune system on the thyroid gland; a phenomenon known in medical terms as an autoimmune reaction.
Yes, the condition is as unpleasant as it sounds and it tends to affect more women than men, with the occurrence of Hypothyroidism seen to increase as an individual’s age increases. The symptoms of Hypothyroidism include distressing things such as constipation, depression, fatigue, weight gain and heavy or irregular periods. Worse still, if left untreated Hypothyroidism can have an impact on the victim’s vocal abilities, facial contours as well as heart rate. Therefore it is imperative that the condition is attended to immediately.
Note that Hypothyroidism is not all doom and gloom however as there is medication that restores the hormone levels. Alas, the medication must be taken for the duration of one’s life which results in great strain on one’s monthly bills. Thankfully, there is support available to you from the Canadian government which offers disability benefits. These benefits come in numerous forms such as Disability Tax Credits, Ontario Disability Benefits (if you live in Ontario), Child Disability Benefits, and the Registered Disability Savings Plan (RDSP).
