"... The most common cause of hypothyroidism is thyroiditis. Swelling and inflammation damage the thyroid gland's cells. Causes of this problem include:
An attack of the thyroid gland by the immune system
Cold or other respiratory infection
Pregnancy (often called "postpartum thyroiditis")
Other causes of hypothyroidism include:
Certain drugs, such as lithium and amiodarone
Congenital (birth) defects
Radiation treatments to the neck or brain to treat different cancers
Radioactive iodine used to treat an overactive thyroid gland
Surgical removal of part or all of the thyroid gland
Sheehan syndrome, a condition that may occur in a woman who bleeds severely during pregnancy or childbirth and causes the destruction of the pituitary gland"
Your doctor is the best person to help you find the cause.
