Thyroid Cancer - What Puts You At Risk?

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine)
Endocrinologist, Delhi
Thyroid Cancer - What Puts You At Risk?

Thyroid cancer occurs in the cells of the thyroid gland which is found at the base of your neck, just below your Adam's apple. Your thyroid produces important hormones like TSH that regulate your heart rate, blood pressure, body temperature and weight. Thyroid cancer is an uncommon kind of cancer which usually doesn’t cause symptoms in the early stage.

However, symptoms like the following mean that you should see a doctor immediately

  1. A lump on your neck that can be felt
  2. Changes in your voice, including an increase in hoarseness
  3. Difficulty in swallowing
  4. Pain in the neck and throat

Risk factors and causes
The precise cause of thyroid cancer and the risk factors is still unknown, but research is going on to try to find out more. There are, however, a number of factors that may increase your risk of developing thyroid cancer. These are called risk factors. These are a few common ones:

  1. Benign or non-cancerous thyroid disease like:
    • An enlarged thyroid or goitre
    • Thyroid nodules or adenomas
    • Inflammation of the thyroid called thyroiditis
    • Benign thyroid disease is genetic. You are more at risk of getting thyroid cancer if you have family members with this disease. Your risk is even higher if more than one member of your family is affected.
  2. Exposure to radiation:
    • Any type of radiotherapy to the neck area can increase your risk of developing thyroid cancer years later.
    • Exposure to high levels of radiation in the environment can also increase your risk.
  3. Diabetes - A number of studies are pointing to the fact that diabetes may play a big role in thyroid cancer risk. Research is confirming that there is a very strong role in metabolic syndrome, obesity, and diabetes as precipitating factors in thyroid cancer development. Plausible reasons that may link diabetes to higher thyroid cancer risk include:
    • Chronic thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) stimulation: Diabetics are susceptible to disruption in thyroid hormone balance, upping cancer risk. Elevated circulating insulin levels in type 2 diabetics with insulin resistance increase risk too. Anti-diabetic medication is linked to thyroid cancer.
    • Concomitant increased body mass index (BMI): In diabetics is also associated with increased risk for cancer in general, and thyroid cancer in particular.
    • Chronic exposure to glucose: This has been linked recently to increased thyroid cancer risk.
    • Elevated prevalence of vitamin D deficiency: The diabetics in animal studies is linked to increased cancer risk.
  4. Inherited gene: Your risk of developing thyroid cancer goes up if you have inherited an altered gene that causes a bowel condition called familial adenomatous polyposis or FAP. So, you should get yourself tested if anyone in your family has this genetic condition to see if you have the same altered gene.
  5. Sex: Being female Thyroid cancer is more common in women than men.
  6. Weight: People who are overweight may have a higher risk of getting thyroid cancer. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Endocrinologist.

Hi doctor, My mother age is 58 she had diabetes from past 18 years. She is on insulin and tablets now. From one year she had lvsd heart issue and on medication.

High wbc count is usually taken as evidence of infection and common infetion in diabetics is Urinary tract infection. My advice is to consult a physician who will clinically evaluate her and then suggest appropriate tests to diagnose the poroblem to treat it accordingly.

I am 46 years male having high uric acid in blood and high cholesterol. How I will get relieve from this? What is the restriction should I follow? Is it curable through Yoga?

Mr. Lybrate-user, increased uric acid in blood is due to a metabolic aberration, where an enzyme is lacking which breaks down purines. Therefore, only certain medications which help in excreting uric acid are helpful. Plus taking restricted diet, avoiding high purine containing foods like red meat, organ meat, certain fishes like sardines, trout, herring, scallops, salmon, haddock and mushrooms and mussels. You can take eggs, milk proteins and other vegetable proteins. Also avoid alcohol, sweetened aerated drinks and fructose corn syrup containing products. This is not a curable condition. As regards cholesterol diet restriction and exercise and yogasanas will definitely help in controlling it effectively. Thanks.

What's her tsh level? if it is normal then no worries. Regarding whether fasting is required or not, there are conflicting studies. In my personal experience of more than 1000 patients, tsh level is often at a lower level when measured after meals. So, I would suggest that you check it after overnight fasting.

What happens to your Body when you Quit Sugar

MD - Diabetology, Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (MRCS), MBBS
Endocrinologist, Kochi
What happens to your Body when you Quit Sugar

On an average a person consumes nearly 800 calories daily from added sugar. This does not just include natural sugar found in fruits or milk but the processed sweet sugar as well, that is added to cakes, tea, coffee, confectionery and even pasta sauce and salad dressing. However, it is possible that you can limit your sugar intake or even quit it to get some truly amazing benefits.

When you take this hard decision, you may experience withdrawal symptoms such as mild depression, anxiety or restlessness. But if you remain adamant and continue with your decision, your body will soon show some incredible results that you couldn't have imagined.

Here are a few of them:

1. Your heart will beat happily

Sugar raises insulin levels that activate the responses of sympathetic nervous system thereby elevating your bp and heart rate. When you cut down on sugar, your ldl cholesterol will decrease by 10% and triglycerides will reduce by 20-30%. And your risk of heart attack will reduce manifold.

2. Your weight fluctuations will be gone

With the exception of fruits, sugar is mostly present in processed or high-carb foods that contain loads of other unwanted constituents like fat etc.

So when you quit sugar, your body has to no longer worry about those unwelcome calories and your weight will stop moving right and left across the scale.

3. Digestion will become efficient

When you quit sugar, the digestive system becomes more efficient. Since your stomach and intestines have to no longer worry about those difficult to digest processed foods, their abilities and functioning improves. Even your colon begins to work better, may be you take more trips to the restroom, so things get even more on track.

4. No more acne troubles

Sugar triggers acne troubles. When you cut it down, you will no longer be troubled by those zits that dampen your looks. Your skin will actually clear up, cracks will disappear and you will get a healthier skin.

5. You will no longer have sweet craving

With sugar, there is a huge negative, as you enjoy sweets, you crave for more sweets. But if you quit sugar, slowly you will begin to avoid foods that contain sugar and as a result, whenever you will eat anything that has sugar, it will taste over sweet and you will not be able to have large portions. This means no more cravings for sugar!

Cupping therapy in High blood pressure

MD (U), Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S)
Unani Specialist, Delhi
Cupping therapy in High blood pressure
Hypertension is very common, that needs a lifelong management once diagnosed. All adults should know their blood pressure; regular monitoring can reduce the risk of having heart disease, stroke, kidney failure and blood vessel problems. Though anti-hypertensive medications and lifestyle changes are effective to bring down the blood pressure, some natural remedies help control the blood pressure more efficiently.
Cupping is an ancient treatment remedy that has been used for many centuries in many parts of the world for high blood pressure (hypertension) treatment. In the middle east, wet cupping" hijama" is still a popular treatment. Wet cupping is the process of using a vacuum at different points on the body in order to gather the blood in that area. Then apply few superficial incisions (small, light scratches using a razor) on those areas, followed by repeating the vacuum on the same areas in order to remove'harmful' blood which lies just beneath the surface of the skin.

Long-term effects of diabetes. The most common long-term complications of diabetes include: damage to the large blood vessels of the heart, brain and legs (macrovascular complications) damage to the small blood vessels, causing problems in the eyes, kidneys, feet and nerves (microvascular complications).
