Hypothyroidism is one of the most common endocrine disorders seen in daily OPD. It refers to the deficiency of thyroid hormone caused due to various reasons. There is not a direct description of hypothyroidism found in Samhitas. Hypothyroidism can be considered as a Santarpanjanya Vikara due to Kaphavatadosha Dushti. There is involvement of all Srotas but dominantly Rasvaha Srotas. Hence it can be corrected through Langhan Chikitsa.
