In this study, 100 patients were screened for Hypothyroidism and 20 patients were selected based on the screening of patient population as per the inclusion and exclusion criteria listed out in the screening proforma. The patients who fulfilled the inclusion criteria were observed for a period of one year for their Clinical history, clinical signs and symptoms followed by Envagai thervu (Eight fold examinations) namely Naa(Tongue), Niram(Colour), Mozhi(speech), Vizhi (Eyes and vision), Malam(Faeces), Moothiram(Urine), Neerkuri, Neikkuri (Oil drop examination) and Manikadai Nool(Wrist circumference). The results were graphically documented and discussed. Through this study a diagnostic method for the disease Kanda Karappaan can be evolved therby to aid the clinicians for an appropriate line of treatment and to adopt preventive measures based on Siddha system of medicine.
