Does an overactive or underactive thyroid have a reason for happening? Is it just a physical ailment or is it caused by vitamin deficiency, being underweight, stress, medications ????

Thyroid problems can also be caused by an autoimmune disoerder called Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. Your body attacks your thyroid as if it were an invader and this can cause both hyper and hypo thyroidism. I have this disease, but I'm not on any thyroid medications as of yet. Keep in mind, though, that most people who have thyroid problems do not have this disease, but it is a possible cause. Your doctor can determine whether you have it or not by performing a blood test to check for thyroid antibodies.
