Postpartum thyroiditis is a common thyroid disorder that presents during the first postpartum year. The actual cause of this condition is unknown. Increased risk of postpartum thyroiditis is observed in condition like an immune system disorder, type 1 diabetes or a history of thyroiditis. The prevalence of postpartum thyroiditis varies widely. The recurrence rate in postpartum thyroiditis is high. Seventy percent of women with a prior episode of postpartum thyroiditis develop a recurrence in the subsequent pregnancy. There are a number of symptoms of postpartum thyroiditis that can appear during both the hyperthyroid and hypothyroid phases of the condition. Diagnosis of hyperthyroidism can be confirmed with blood tests. Treatment generally isn't needed for mild signs and symptoms. Hypothyroidism is treated by organotherapy, a complementary therapy used in homeopathy to bring balance back to organs.
