Suffering From Thyroid? Things You Should Know!

Suffering From Thyroid? Things You Should Know!

Your thyroid is a small, butterfly-shaped gland situated at the base of the front of your neck, just below your Adam's apple. Hormones produced by the thyroid gland do everything from maintaining your heart rate to regulating your body temperature to controlling your body weight. 

Millions of people worldwide suffer from thyroid dysfunction and several don't know about it. This is primarily because people don't tend to link the common symptoms first with a thyroid disease. Some people suffer from mood swings, trouble with memory, weight gain or fatigue, all of which they look upon individually as a problem and hence not piecing together the puzzle of their real medical condition. Here are a few insights that'll help you cope:

How does the thyroid gland work: About 85% of the hormone produced by our thyroid gland is T4, which is an inactive form of the hormone. After T4 is made, a small amount of is converted into T3, which is the active form of thyroid hormone. T3 is then converted to free T3 or reverse T3. It is the free T3 that forms the base of thyroid functions. 

What is hypothyroidism: Hypothyroidism, or an underactive thyroid, accounts for 90% of all thyroid imbalances. The signs and symptoms of hypothyroidism develop slowly, often over a number of years, which is why it is often missed from regular treatment charts. For instance, fatigue and weight gain are often attributed to stress, lifestyle changes and natural ageing process. But as time goes by, some of the symptoms show a higher level of manifestation like muscle weakness, elevated blood cholesterol, thinning hair, puffy face, hoarse voice and slowed heart rate. 

If left untreated, hypothyroidism may lead to goiter (enlarged thyroid), increased memory problems, low blood pressure, decreased breathing and in extreme cases, unresponsiveness and coma
This disease may also occur in newborns, infants and children. Symptoms include excessive sleepiness, poor muscle tone and constipation. It is important to diagnose and treat it early, as in severe cases it may lead to mental and / or physical retardation. In children and teens, it can result in stunted growth, and delayed puberty.

What is hyperthyroidismIt's the opposite of hypothyroidism, which means in this case the thyroid overproduces hormones. Common symptoms include lack of sleep, weakness, irregular heartbeat, elevated blood pressure and hand tremors. While genetics are partially responsible for it, it is also triggered by autoimmune disorder. Hyperthyroidism can be treated with medication, radioactive iodine (not the first or best choice as it harms white cells too) and surgery. Keeping a focus on your calcium and sodium intake is crucial to curb the disorder.

Treatments: Conventional treatments rely mainly on drugs and surgery. Alternative treatments involve diet and lifestyle changes. Taking multivitamins, going gluten free, getting a good night sleep, and reducing stress is all said to help heal your thyroid gradually. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

To the best of my knowledge, the uncontrollable craving for ice is not related to hypothyroidism. This will not have any significant impact on your thyroids.

Hello, Thanks for the query. Since there is no mention of actual TSH level, it is difficult to comment. Because what you consider "normal' is not clear. Ideally TSH should be maintained around 3 to 4 mU/L for being free from all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. Thanks.

Mr. lybrate-user, Thanks for the query. TSH 0.005 mU/L, is definitely suggestive of hyperactive thyroid. Please let me know if you have any symptoms. The treatment for this condition has to be properly monitored. In this communiction we are supposed to give only general guidelines, no prescriptions are allowed. So it is essential for you to come in a private conversation with details like T3, T4 & TSH levels and symptoms. Then I will be able to guide specifically. Or else seek the advise of a local expert thanks.

Diabetes With Hypothyroidism And Hyperthyroidism

Diabetes With Hypothyroidism And Hyperthyroidism
You'll want to see your endocrinologist (endocrine system, remember?) or primary care physician asap. You may be referred to a doctor who specializes in thyroid issues (as opposed to diabetes), but your endocrinologist will know exactly how to diagnosis you. The primary way to diagnose thyroid disease is something called a tsh (thyrotropin stimulating hormone) test, which checks the amount of thyroid-stimulating hormone in your system. It's a very easy and inexpensive blood test, so don't delay if you think you have symptoms!

However, sometimes the test will come back false-normal, so testing for antibodies or having a full thyroid panel can also turn up things that the tsh test might leave out.

Autoimmune thyroid diseases, like hashimoto's disease, are usually much easier to manage than diabetes. The hormone replacement treatment comes in pill form, so taking the medication is easy-peasey. But some patients have difficulty finding the right type of thyroid replacement pill. While there are two types of natural thyroid hormones, called t3 and t4, only t4 is found in the common thyroid replacements. For many people, this doesn't work well. In theory, t4 medication would also convert to t3, but research suggests this doesn't always happen. You'll want to do your homework and make sure you get on the right treatment for you!

Patient lindsay o'rourke writes on the tu diabetes group for hypothyroidism "I went on my generic prescription, levothroid, and even at a very low dose it was an extreme difference. I felt back to normal. My energy was back, and a slew of other symptoms went away."

Hyperthyroidism can be treated with anti-thyroid medicines such as methimazole (tapazole) and propylthiouracil (ptu), but the most common way of treating hyperthyroidsim is radioactive iodine therapy. Weirdly, it kills off the thyroid, causing permanent hypothyroidism.

I am suffering from thyroid from last 10 years. I am having eltroxin-100 one tablet per day. Recently I had test of my thyroid test and the result is 6.54. Please suggest me some medicine and exercise so that it can fully be cured.

Hello, keep on taking the medicine which you are taking and follow the below yoga exercises:- 1. Shoulder stand (sarvangasana) is the most recommended posture in this condition. It stimulates the thyroid gland to function properly because of the pressure effect and also helps stimulate other glands in the head region, such as pituitary and pineal glands, which also have an indirect control on the functioning of the thyroid gland. 2. Inverted pose (viparitakarani) 3. One-legged forward bend (janu shirasasana) 4. Fish pose (matsyasana)> 5. Plow pose (halasana) 6. Cat stretch (marjariasana) 7. Fast-paced sun salutation (surya namaskar) can work well for controlling weight. Besides these yoga postures, the practice of pranayamas (breathing techniques) such as kapal bhati. Thanks.
