In the present generation many people are suffering from the Thyroid problems in India especially it is more in south Indian population. This disorder is much more prevalent in women than in men. The prevalence of the thyroid problems in patients with diabetes is higher than in the general population. According to various studies on thyroid disorder, it has been estimated that more than 40 million people in India. Thyroid problems are the most common among all the endocrine diseases, hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, Grave's disease and Thyroiditis are more common thyroid problems in women.
The thyroid hormones stimulate the metabolism of cells. It participates in these processes by producing hormones, the principal ones being Triiodothyronine (T3) and Thyroxine (T4). These hormones regulate the rate of metabolism and affect the growth and rate of function of many other systems in the body. T3 and T4 are synthesized from both iodine and tyrosine. This glands also produces Calcitonin, which plays a role in calcium metabolism. So Thyroid problems can effect total metabolism.
The thyroid gland in vertebrate anatomy, is one of the largest endocrine glands and it's found in the neck, below the Adam's apple. The Primary function of the gland is production of the hormones Triidothyronine (T3), Thyroxine (T4), and Calcitonin, which regulates the body metabolism and energy levels. These hormones also accelerate Physical body's Growth (Height and weight) and mental development. Up to 80% of the T4 is converted to T3 by peripheral organs such as the liver, kidney and spleen. T3 is several times more powerful than T4. The production of Thyroxine and Triiodothyronine is regulated by thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), released by the anterior pituitary gland. These hormones are responsible for the total body's metabolism.
TSH measurement is the best means of determining thyroid dysfunction. Normal results essentially rule out hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism.
The most common Thyroid problems in clinical practice are Hypothyroidism, Hyperthryoidism, Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis, Goitre. Treatment of thyroid problems from the experts at Homeocare international provides best homeopathic treatment for all thyroid problems.
Hypothyroidism occurs at any age but is particularly common among the elderly. It occurs in close to 10% of women and 6% of men > 65. Although typically easy to diagnose in younger adults, it may be subtle and manifest atypically in the elderly. The Thyroid disorders during pregnancy can affect both mother and baby's health. Most of the women face Hypothyroidism problem during pregnancy.
Hypothyroidism is caused by T3 and T4 hormones deficiency. It is characterized by Fatigue, Depression, Modest weight gain, Cold intolerance, Excessive sleepiness, Dry, coarse hair, Constipation, Dry skin, Muscle cramps, Increased cholesterol levels, Decreased concentration, Vague aches and pains, Swelling of the legs.
Hyperthryoidism is a condition which is caused due to over production of T3 and T4 hormones because of over active of the gland.
Hyperthyroidism is characterized by Hypermetabolism and elevated serum levels of free thyroid hormones. Symptoms are many but include tachycardia, fatigue, weight loss, nervousness, and tremor.
Hyperthyroidism can be classified on the basis of radioactive iodine uptake and the presence or absence of circulating thyroid simulators
The Thyroid gland over activate and release more T3 and T4 hormones is caused to Graves disease. Graves disease is most common thyroid problems which causes of Hyperthyroidism. Hypothalamus release TSH hormone through Pituitary gland to manipulate Thyroid gland functions. In this condition the gland lost the ability to respond to TSH hormone, which is controlled by pituitary gland. Graves disease is easily detect with the help of blood test include TSI antibodies, TPO, TSH antibodies found in the blood test. Graves disease can diagnose by nuclear medicine Thyroid scan. Graves diseases is causes to eye problems and skin diseases.
Toxic adenoma and Toxic Multinodular Goiter (MNG) are toxic Thyroid problems and its common causes of Hyperthyroidism. The thyroid gland becomes lumpier as we get older. In the majority of cases, these lumps do not produce hormones and require no Thyroid treatment, it contains autonomously functioning nodules. The prevalence of toxic nodular goiter increases with age and in the presence of iodine deficiency. Occasionally, a nodule may become "autonomous," which means that it does not respond to pituitary regulation via TSH and produces T3 and T4 hormones independently. It's becomes more likely if the nodule is larger than 3 cm. When there is a single nodule that is independently producing hormones, it is called a functioning nodule. If there is more than one functioning nodule, the term toxic, multinodular Goiter is used. Functioning nodules may be readily detected with the scan. Prevention is better than treatment for thyroid problems, so If you takes good healthy diet for better metabolism functions like iodine food, most of the thyroid problems are preventable and most of cancers are curable when disease in starting stage.
This type of disorder is a resultant of over use of thyroid supplementation either by mistake of a lack of follow up of a hypothyroid patient or purposeful excess intake of (medicines or drugs) supplementation for achieving goals like weight loss.
Inflammation of the thyroid gland may occur after a viral illness (subacute thyroiditis). This condition is association with a fever and a sore throat that is often painful on swallowing. This gland is also tender to touch. There may be generalized neck aches and pains. Inflammation of the gland with an accumulation of white blood cells known as lymphocytes may also occur. In both of these conditions, the inflammation leaves the thyroid gland "leaky," so that the amount of the hormones entering the blood is increased. Lymphocytic thyroiditis is most common after a pregnancy. Thyroiditis can be diagnosed by a scan.
