The thyroid gland
The thyroid is part of the endocrine system, the system of organs that secrete hormones into the blood. A butterfly-shaped gland wrapped around the front of the larynx, it is the largest endocrine gland and the first to appear in the fetus during pregnancy. Its purpose is to synthesize T4 and T3 from iodine. Follicles (round sacs) in the thyroid are filled with thyroglobulin, a thyroid protein. When dietary iodine enters the thyroid, it travels to the follicles, where T4 and T3 are made. The thyroid hormones are first stored in the thyroglobulin and then released into the bloodstream. A complex system of proteins and other molecules carries the thyroid hormones to the cells. When the thyroid is underproducing, the action of

NY: Harper Collins (2001) ISBN: 0-688-17236-9 (296 pages, plus endnotes, bibliography, index, and glossary.) Reviewed by Andrew W. Saul Thyroid Power What to do? First of all, if you feel crummy, insist on thyroid testing, and get a copy of your test results. By law, your doctor must provide them to you if you ask. So ask! Interpretation of the tests is likely to be better if you are in on it, and easier if you have Thyroid Power Second, use the self-assessments provided in the book on pages 20-21, 39-40 and 55-58. They will walk you through and assist you, and your doctor, in making a proper diagnosis. For example, one thing you can do is take your basal body temperature using a sensitive ovulation thermometer, or mercury basal thermometer. This you do before you even get out of bed in the morning. Fourth, learn the side effects of too much thyroid. These include: rapid heartbeat, unusual difficulty sleeping, sweating and otherwise feeling hot, hyperactivity, a racing mind, and twitching. Contrary to popular medical myth, thyroid medication does not cause osteoporosis; it helps prevent it.

Co-Director , New York Thyroid/Parathyroid Center
Chief , Endocrine Surgery Section The New York Thyroid Center is dedicated to providing superior medical care and education for patients with thyroid disease. Our members research causes and treatments, as well as develop prevention programs for thyroid and parathyroid diseases. Founded by the esteemed pioneer in thyroid and parathyroid surgery, Dr. Paul LoGerfo, the Center evolved from a longstanding thyroid clinic, which was established at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center more than 60 years ago. Members of this clinic and subsequently the Center include endocrinologists, surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, and ophthalmologists who are leaders in the classification, treatment and identification of thyroid and parathyroid disorders. Their efforts also extend to the medical community so that the standard of care for all thyroid and parathyroid patients may be improved worldwide. Although our Center is based in New York, we provide a referral service to thyroid and parathyroid specialists across the United States.

Every time you look in the mirror, a key to your well-being is staring you right in the face: your thyroid gland. The thyroid gland is a small, butterfly-shaped gland located at the base of your neck just below your Adam’s apple. Your thyroid gland helps control the function of your body’s metabolism as well as function of many important organs, including your heart, brain, liver, kidneys, and skin. Making sure your thyroid gland is healthy and functioning properly is extremely important to your overall well-being.
The first step toward taking control of your thyroid health is identifying whether your thyroid hormone levels are in balance. The second step is to recognize that there are effective treatments to manage thyroid disease, as long as you follow your doctor’s instructions.
This website will help you understand the role of your thyroid gland and illustrate how you and your doctor can partner to identify your risk for thyroid disease, how to best treat your condition if you are diagnosed, and how to live an active and fulfilling life by keeping your thyroid in balance. Remember, if your thyroid gland isn’t working properly, neither will you.

What causes thyroid dysfunction? And what are symptoms of thyroid problem?
Symptoms of thyroid problem affect many people. In fact, about 13 million Americans experience one or more of the symptoms of problem with thyroid. The function of the thyroid gland is to regulate the speed of the body's metabolism. In other words, this gland converts the food we eat into energy for the body. When this gland is not operating properly, it causes all kinds of symptoms of thyroid problem described below, and it does not convert the food we eat into energy. The thyroid gland makes two hormones, thyroxine-T4 (with four iodines) and triiodothyronine T3 (with three iodines). T4 blood levels are higher than those of T3, but T3 is four times more potent. Normally the body converts T4 to T3 as needed. Common symptoms of problem with thyroid due to low thyroid or hypothyroidism are: • Fatigue and weakness • Low basal temperature ( cold intolerance) • Dry and coarse skin • Hair loss • Cold hands and feet • Weight gain • Insomnia • Constipation • Depression • Poor memory, forgetfulness, dementia

The Thyroid and Parathyroid Glands: Introduction and Index
Feeling run down and tired? Is your attention span poor? Do you really dislike playing in the snow? Lots of disorders can cause such complaints, but these types of symptoms are compatible with inadequate production of thyroid hormones, the primary endocrine secretion of the thyroid gland. Thyroid hormones affect three fundamental physiologic processes: cellular differentiation, growth, and metabolism. If you think about that statement for a minute, you might legitimately ask "So what else is there?" which emphasizes just how much of physiology is affected by thyroid hormones. Not many hormones can claim as diverse a set of target cells. The thyroid gland also produces another hormone called calcitonin, and the parathyroid glands secrete parathyroid hormone. Parathyroid hormone and calcitonin participate in control of calcium and phosphorus homeostasis and have significant effects on bone physiology. Core information on the thyroid and parathyroid glands and their hormones is presented in the following topics: Advanced and supplemental information on the thyroid and parathyroid glands and the hormones they produce:

59. The Thyroid And Down Syndrome
Medical essay on diseases of the thyroid in people with Down Syndrome, by Len Leshin, MD, FAAP.

The Thyroid and Down Syndrome
by Len Leshin, MD, FAAP
Normal Function
The thyroid gland sits at the base of the front of the neck and makes thyroid hormone from iodide, thyroglobulin and tyrosine. This results in the production of thyroxine (T4), which is a "prohormone" (it's inactive but just one step away from becoming a real hormone), and the actual thyroid hormone, T3. Both T3 and T4 are secreted by the thyroid into the blood stream. T4 is converted to T3 by the thyroid, kidneys, and liver. And it's the T3 that's so important for normal growth and development of infants and children, and normal metabolism of all ages. So where does the Growth Hormone (GH) fit in? The GH, synthesized in the part of the brain called the pituitary, appears to be the mediator between the thyroid hormone and the individual tissues. You can also include somatomedins, a group of proteins under the control of GH, as mediators between T3 and body tissues. Thyroid function is controlled by Thyroid Stimulating Hormone (TSH), a hormone made in the hypothalamus and pituitary. If the brain detects that T3 levels are low, more TSH is made which tells the thyroid to make more T4 and T3. If levels are too high, the brain slows down making TSH.
This is the state of not making enough thyroid hormone, and is the most common thyroid problem associated with DS. This can be present at birth (congenital) or may occur at any age (acquired). Every state in the US and many other countries routine screen all newborns for hypothyroidism. In newborns and infants with DS, the most common reason for hypothyroidism is that the thyroid did not form correctly in the fetus. In acquired hypothyroidism, the most common reasons in toddlers and older children with DS is (1) autoimmunity (where the body makes antibodies against its own thyroid) and (2) thyroiditis, where the thyroid tissue becomes replaced with white blood cells and fibrous tissue (Hashimoto thyroiditis).
