Gastrointestinal changes

Constipation is usual in moderate hypothyroidism. Intestinal pseudo-obstruction and paralytic ileus can occur in myxedema coma ( lachman.a.n.d Guthrie 1984). Lack of thyroid hormones induces a slowing in gastric emptying and in the motor activity of the small intestine and colon. Amplitude and frequency of colon muscular contractions are decreased because of neuropathy (altered impulse transmission at the myoneural junction) and/or intestinal ischemia ( BüIg.L§n.d KöD.ig 1988).

Intestinal absorption of drugs, even oral -thyroxine, is usually preserved.
