Dr. Parks graduated from Georgetown University Medical School in Washington, D.C., where she completed a residency in internal medicine and a fellowship in endocrinology/metabolism. Q. What is thyroid dysfunction? A. Q. How can thyroid dysfunction affect the body? A. When the thyroid gland doesn't work properly, it affects how many of our organs function, including the brain, heart, kidneys, liver, and skin. An overactive thyroid can cause symptoms such as heat intolerance, weight loss, menstrual problems, muscle weakness, fatigue, heart palpitations, and tremors. Hyperthyroidism can also lead to osteoporosis. Symptoms of an underactive thyroid can include weight gain, fatigue, depression, mood swings, dry hair and skin, and constipation. Hypothyroidism is also associated with increased cholesterol levels which may increase the risk of cardiovascular disease. Q. What medications are approved to treat hyperthyroidism?

    Thyroid nodules
    Sometimes normal thyroid tissue begins to grow, causing one or more nodules to develop within the gland. The great majority of these solid or fluid-filled lumps are noncancerous (benign), and most thyroid nodules don't cause any symptoms. In fact, you often won't know you have a thyroid nodule until your doctor discovers it during a routine medical exam. Some thyroid nodules, however, may become large enough to press on your windpipe or your esophagus, making it uncomfortable or difficult to swallow. About 5 percent of thyroid nodules may be cancerous (malignant). Treatment depends on the type of thyroid nodule you have. NEXT: Signs and symptoms

    Signs and Symptoms Thyroid cancer is more common among women than men and accounts for only 1 percent of all cancers diagnosed in the United States. Most thyroid cancers grow slowly but certain types can be aggressive. There are four major types of thyroid gland cancer anaplastic, follicular, medullary and papillary. These types of thyroid cancer look differently under a microscope and generally grow at varying rates.
    • Anaplastic cancer: Anaplastic cancer is the fastest growing type of thyroid cancer. The cancer cells are extremely abnormal and spread rapidly to other parts of the body. Anaplastic cancers make up only about 2 percent of all thyroid cancers and are generally difficult to cure. Follicular cancer: This type of cancer also develops in thyroid cells that produce iodine-containing hormones. Most follicular cancers can be cured. About 10 percent to 30 percent of thyroid cancers are follicular cancers. These cancers are well differentiated, meaning slow growing and contain cells that are similar to healthy thyroid cells. Medullary cancer: Medullary cancer is more difficult to control than papillary and follicular thyroid cancer. The cells involved in medullary cancers produce calcitonin, a hormone that does not contain iodine. About 5 to 7 percent of all thyroid cancers are medullary cancers. Of the four types of thyroid cancer, only medullary thyroid cancer can be inherited, which is caused by an alteration in the RET gene. Individuals who inherit this alteration are almost certain to develop medullary thyroid cancer at some time in their lives.

    Earlier this week, Oprah spoke on her talk show about a recent bout with exhaustion and weight gain that was diagnosed as thyroid disease, an issue she also wrote about in her magazine. Thyroid disorders, which are far more common in women than men, are said to be among the most undiagnosed and misdiagnosed health problems. Part of the problem is that the symptoms are ambiguous and likely to be written off as stress, menopause or normal aging. The most common thyroid problem is caused by an underactive thyroid (hypothyroidism), and symptoms include weight gain, fatigue, depression, high cholesterol, neck pain, hair loss, low sex drive and worsening menstrual symptoms. An overactive thyroid, or hyperthyroidism, can also cause neck pain, hair loss and menstrual and sex-drive problems, as well as insomnia, unexpected weight loss, chronic diarrhea, anxiety and panic attacks, heart palpitations, high blood pressure and bulging eyes. thyroid disease Web site here .

    Tired? Depressed? Check Your Thyroid
    By Paula Dranov
    Condensed from American Health (May '94)
    When This Gland Goes Haywire, Watch Out
    Julie Amato of Simsbury, Conn., had been a high-energy person. "I ran five to seven miles a day and was always the one to say 'Go, go, go.'" But things changed after the birth of her first child, and Amato, 35, felt "horrible. My hands and feet were always cold. My periods were much heavier, and I had so little energy that just getting up the stairs was a major effort. I thought I was dying." Finally she saw a doctor "who took one look at me and said, 'It's your thyroid.'" A blood test confirmed Amato was hypothyroid - her thyroid gland was underactive, producing too little thyroid hormone. With daily treatment her energy level has gradually increased." Ann Maltz, 37, of Houston was also a new mother. "I was jittery, my hair was falling out, I wasn't sleeping and my heart seemed to be racing," she remembers. Like Amato - and many other women - Maltz blamed the stress of motherhood. One day, while she was going downstairs, her legs slid out from under her. She was too weak to stand. From the swollen appearance of her neck, Maltz's physician suspected a thyroid problem. Tests confirmed it: Her thyroid was on fast-forward, producing too much hormone. Maltz now feels fine after treatment for hyperthyroidism.

There is a reason why thyroid disease is one of the top diseases affecting women: the inadequate "standard" tests coupled with deluded doctors. The latter persist in the delusion that any patient whose test result falls within the "norm" means the patient must not have a thyroid problem, despite the fact that she (or he, as men can be improperly diagnosed, too) exhibits and reports most or all of the classic symptoms of hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. There's a lot more to diagnosing and treating thyroid hormone problems than the ones detected by the standard thyroid test ordered by doctors. Unfortunately, finding the information you need, and finding doctors who understand what tests are needed and what type of drug or drugs are required to treat the actual problem is difficult. This page provides links to articles and resources where you can find more information and physicians.

    ... Treatment Decision Tools Detailed Guide: Thyroid Cancer What Is Thyroid Cancer? Thyroid cancer is a cancer that starts in the thyroid gland. In order to understand thyroid cancer, it helps to know about the normal structure and function of the thyroid gland. The Thyroid Gland The thyroid gland is under the Adam's apple in the front part of the neck. In most people, it cannot be seen or felt. It is butterfly shaped, with 2 lobes the right lobe and the left lobe joined by a narrow isthmus (see picture below). The thyroid gland contains mainly 2 types of cells thyroid follicular cells and C cells (also called parafollicular cells). The follicular cells use iodine from the blood to make thyroid hormone, which helps regulate a person's metabolism. Too much thyroid hormone (a condition called hyperthyroidism) can cause a rapid or irregular heartbeat, trouble sleeping, nervousness, hunger, weight loss, and a feeling of being too warm. Too little hormone (called hypothyroidism) causes a person to slow down, feel tired, and gain weight. The amount of thyroid hormone released by the thyroid is regulated by the pituitary gland at the base of the brain, which makes a substance called thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH). C cells (parafollicular cells) make calcitonin , a hormone that helps regulate how the body uses calcium.

    For decades, we, as hypothyroid patients have unwittingly become victims to a thyroid treatment madness that leaves us with lingering hypothyroid symptoms This madness has occurred to those with obvious hypothyroid symptoms, yet no diagnosis, due to the lousy lab work called the TSH. YOU may have been hypothyroid for YEARS. list is long and pathetic As thyroid patients, we have learned treatment protocols that work, as well as other issues which may need treatment, such as our adrenals And many doctors, who tend to be cattle in the chutes of their medical school training, need to rethink the POOR treatment they are bestowing on their thyroid patients!! You can cite all the research you want! You can quote all the statistics you desire! You can refer to all the medical reviews you know!!
