The blood abnormality is seen in conditions such as abetalipoproteinemia, severe liver disease and severe malnutrition. Symptoms and prognosis depend on the underlying disorder.
- Acquired hypothyroidism: Acquired hypothyroidism is a condition where the thyroid gland makes too little or no thyroid hormone. Acquired hypothyroidism can be caused by both thyroid disease (primary hypothyroidism) and hypothalamic-pituitary disease (central hypothyroidism)
- Addison's Disease: A rare progressive hormonal disorder characterized by insufficient production of certain hormones called adrenal corticosteroids.
- Adrenal gland symptoms: Symptoms affecting the adrenal glands

- Familial hypopituitarism: Impaired pituitary gland hormone-producing activity that tends to run in families.

- Hereditary hypothyroidism: Hereditary hypothyroidism is a condition in which there is a defect in the thyroid gland which leads to increased production of TSH reduced production of thyroid hormone.
- Hyperthyroidism: The excessive activity of the thyroid gland
- Hypopituitarism: A condition characterized by diminished hormonal section by the pituitary gland
- Hypothalamic dysfunction: Abnormal function of the thalamus located in the brain. The thalamus controls pituitary gland function which in turn controls other hormone producing glands such as the thyroid gland, adrenal gland, ovaries and testes. The thalamus also regulates functions such as temperature control, emotions, sleep, appetite and salt balance. Abnormal thalamus functioning may be caused by such things as surgery, infection, genetic disorders, poor nutrition and tumors.
- Hypothyroid goitre: Goitre is the enlargement of the thyroid gland and hypothyroid state is characterized by increased TSH levels and decreased T3 and T4 levels circulating in the body.
- Hypothyroidism: The decreased activity of the thyroid gland
- Kwashiorkor: A malnutrition state that is produced by severe protein deficiency
- Malnutrition: Any disorder that relates to inadequate intake of nutrients.
- Medication related hypothyroidism: Drug-induced hypothyroidism is an underactive thyroid gland due to a reaction from medication.

- Sensations: Changes to sensations or the senses
- Sensory symptoms: Symptoms affecting the sensory systems.
- Septic shock: serious medical condition caused by decreased tissue perfusion and oxygen delivery as a result of infection and sepsis, though the microbe may be systemic or localized to a particular site
- Sick: Feeling ill or off color
- Skin problems: Any condition that affects the skin
- Skin symptoms: Symptoms affecting the skin.
- Sub clinical hypothyroidism: Sub clinical hypothyroidism, also referred to as mild hypothyroidism, is defined as normal serum free T4 levels with slightly high serum TSH concentration.
- Sudden onset of cold intolerance: Sudden onset of cold intolerance is a condition in which there is a rapid development of increased discomfort when exposed to cold temperatures.
- Sweat symptoms: Symptoms related to sweating
- Temperature sensitivity: Changes to the body's perception of temperature
- Temperature symptoms: Abnormalities of body temperature including fever.
- Tertiary hypothyroidism: Tertiary hypothyroidism results from a malfunction of the hypothalamus, the part of the brain that controls the endocrine system.
- Thyroid hormone plasma membrane transport defect: Thyroid problems caused by a defect in the transport of a thyroid hormone called T4 (thyroxine) within the body. The thyroid produces excessive hormones to try to compensate for that inability of the body to utilize the hormone.
- Young Simpson syndrome: A condition that is characterised by mainly mental retardation and physical signs of hypothyroidism
- Zadik Barak Levin syndrome: A condition that affects the endocrine system as well as some facial characteristics
