With the deepening of research, the etiology and pathogenesis of hypothyroidism and heart failure are becoming more and more clear, but the study of the relationship between the two has not been too good. The purpose of this article is to explore the relationship between hypothyroidism and heart failure using microscope imaging techniques, starting with the impact of hypothyroidism on heart and other organ functions. In this paper, 76 elderly patients with hypothyroidism and heart failure were selected from a hospital as the research object, and 76 samples were divided into an experimental group (n=38) and a control group (n=38). The experimental group was given a two-week drug treatment for the symptoms of hypothyroidism. Each morning, levothyroxine sodium tablets were taken orally, while the control group was not given drug treatment. Two weeks later, the thyroid function and heart function of the two groups of patients were compared. According to the experimental results, the treatment of hypothyroidism can optimize their thyroid function, and the heart function also improved. The number of patients in the experimental group was reduced by 4 cases, which was converted into Grade III patients, and 11 of the original grade III patients were converted to grade II patients. This proves that hypothyroidism is closely related to heart failure in the elderly.
