    Author : Dr. (Mrs.) Puneet Srivastava  |  Rating:   |  2 Comments  |  10694 times viewed
    Thyroid gland is a small 2-inch butterfly shaped gland located just below the Adamís apple in the lower part of the neck. It secretes hormones through bloodstream to every cell and every organ in our body. This tiny, gland regulates our body temperature, keeps our brain thinking clearly, our heart pumping rhythmically, and
    If you are losing weight If your hairs are falling If you get tired easily If your skin is becoming dry and lusterless and if you are a female in age group of 45-60 years then get your TSH (thyroid-stimulating hormone) level checked. Being a female you are more concerned about your looks so it becomes a major hassle for you but unluckily being female also makes you are more prone to Thyroid problems. You may be suffering from hyperthyroidism or hypothyroidism.

  • Homeopathic Perspective on Thyroid Disorders
    Author : Dr. R. K. Manchanda  |  Rating:   |  3 Comments  |  21168 times viewed
    Goiter was first described in China in 2700 BC. Da Vinci described thyroid as a thing that is designed to fill empty spaces in the neck. According to Parry - thyroid works as a buffer to protect the brain from surges in blood flow. Roman physicians have reported thyroid enlargement as a sign of puberty. In 500 AD Abdul Kasan Kelebis Abis performed the first goiter excision in Baghdad, the procedure remained unknown. In 1200s AD advancements in goiter procedures included applying hot irons through the skin and slowly withdrawing them at right angles. The remaining mass or pedicled tissue was excised. Patients were tied to the table and held down to prevent unwanted movement, but most died from haemorrhage or sepsis. In 1646 AD Wilhelm Fabricus performed a thyroidectomy with standard surgical scalpels, for which he was imprisoned. In 1656 thyroid was first identified by the anatomist Thomas Wharton. In 1808 AD Guillaume Dupuytren performed a total thyroidectomy, but the patient died post operatively of "shock".

  • Overactive Thyroid Symptoms
    Author : Dr. B.S. Suvarna  |  Rating:   |  1 Comments  |  7183 times viewed
    An overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism or thyrotoxicosis) results from the overproduction of the thyroid hormones, T4 and T3, by the thyroid gland. In three quarters of patients this is the result of the presence in the blood of an anti body that stimulates the thyroid, not only to secrete excessive amounts of thyroid hormones but also, in some, to increase the size of the thyroid gland, producing a Goiter. This type of hyperthyroidism is known as Graves disease, named after one of the physicians who described the condition in considerable details more than 200 years ago. The cause of antibody production is not known but, as Grave's disease runs in families' genes must play a part.

  • Thyroid Nodules
    Author : Dr. B.S. Suvarna  |  Rating:   |  2 Comments  |  14691 times viewed
    Single lumps or nodules in the thyroid are common and can occur at any age, women are likely to be more affected than men. A single thyroid nodule varies in size from that of a pea to a golf ball or even larger like a goiter. The nodule is usually discovered by accident while you are washing or looking in a mirror. Bleeding into the nodule may cause pain which alerts you to its presence, alternatively, the nodule may be discovered during a medical examination for some quite unrelated problem, although neither you nor your family have had noticed it before. Most women are aware of the significance of a lump in the breast and so naturally suspect that a nodule in the thyroid may also mean cancer. This is why your GP will probably want you to see a specialist, in fact great majority of single thyroid nodules are not cancers of the thyroid.

  • Pregnancy and Thyroid Dysfunction
    Author : Dr. Rajneesh K. Sharma  |  Rating:   |  0 Comments  |  7549 times viewed
    Hypothyroidism is associated with menstrual irregularities and infertility. Hypothyroidism during pregnancy is almost always mild and almost always due to Hashimoto's thyroiditis. It is very important to make the diagnosis early, as hypothyroidism has been associated with maternal and fetal morbidity. Diagnosis of hypothyroidism is confirmed by an elevated TSH level. All the cases of pregnancy should be screened for hypothyroidism if they have a history of thyroid disease, goiter, other autoimmune disease, recurrent miscarriage, or family history of autoimmune thyroid.

  • Prevalence of Thyroid Disorders in School Children in Delhi
    Submitted by : Dr. R. K. Manchanda  |  Rating:   |  1 Comments  |  5576 times viewed
    Screening of 4543 children between 6-18 years of age from different schools of Delhi was done during the first phase of research study under EMR project by AYUSH, for thyroid function status-clinically, serologically & ultrasonographically. Data of 4506 children has been analyzed & it has been found that goiter is prevalent at mild endemic level in children (17%) even after two decades of iodization. Significant increase in anti TPO ab positivity (6.39%) and thyroid dysfunction (11.92%) raises suspicion about the role of environmental goitrogens and prolonged iodine supplementation.

  • Homeopathic Therapeutics in the field of Endocrinology
    Author : Dr. Herbert A. Roberts  |  Rating:   |  1 Comments  |  19321 times viewed
    The viewpoint of the modern physiologist reflects the theory that the vast majority of human ills are traceable to dysfunctions of the glandular system; that most growth problems (over- and under-development of the whole body or parts) and many mal-adjustments of the child to its environment, and even of the adult to his relationships and problems, are related in some degree to endocrine imbalance.

  • Radiotherapy
    Author : Dr. Sayeed Ahmad  |  Rating:   |  1 Comments  |  7999 times viewed
    Since the discovery of x-rays over one hundred years ago, radiation has been used increasingly in medicine, both to help with diagnosis (by taking pictures with x-rays), and as a treatment (radiotherapy). While radiation obviously has to be used with care, doctors and radiographers have great experience in its use in medicine. Radiotherapy treatment can cure some cancers and can reduce the chance of a cancer coming back after surgery, but can cause side effects. It can be used to reduce cancer symptoms.

  • A Case of Thyrotoxicosis
    Author : Dr. Jugal Kishore  |  Rating:   |  4 Comments  |  12617 times viewed
    Thyrotoxicosis was perhaps the first disorder in which anti-receptor antibodies were clearly recognized and is an excellent example of autoimmune disease. Unfortunately, in the Homeopathic literature, we have come across very little reference of clinical cases treated successfully by homeopathic remedies. In the Homeopathic literature "Kent's Repertory" has listed remedies under Goitre, Exopthalmic Goitre, Swelling Thyroid gland. In the "Special Pathology and Diagnostics with Therapeutic Hints" by Dr. C.G. Raue a few remedies are given under the chapter of Exopthalmic Goitre like Amyl nitr., Badiaga, Belladona, Calc. carb, Ferrum, Lycopus, Natrum. Mur, Secale, Spongia. He has also emphasized a few remedies acting especially on the heart and the Thyroid gland
