Thyroid diseases-symptoms

  1. 1. Thyroid Diseases & SymptomsThyroid Diseases & Symptoms Thyroid Problems ANY LAB TEST WACO
  2. 2. Types of HyperthyroidismTypes of Hyperthyroidism Hyperthyroidism  is  the  overproduction  of thyroid hormones 
  3. 3. Graves' diseaseGraves' disease The production of too much thyroid  hormone.  FOR TESTING INFO... www.anylabtestwaco.com
  4. 4. Toxic adenomasToxic adenomas Nodules  develop  in  the  thyroid  gland  and  begin  to  secrete  thyroid  hormones,  upsetting  the  body's  chemical  balance;  some  goiters  may  contain several of these nodules.  
  5. 5. Subacute thyroiditisSubacute thyroiditis Inflammation of the thyroid causes the  gland  to  "leak"  excess  hormones,  resulting  in  temporary  hyperthyroidism that generally lasts a  few  weeks  but  may  persist  for  months.  
  6. 6. Pituitary gland malfunctions orPituitary gland malfunctions or cancerous growths in the thyroid glandcancerous growths in the thyroid gland Although rare, hyperthyroidism can  also develop from these causes. 
  7. 7. Types ofTypes of HypothyroidismHypothyroidism Stems  from  an  underproduction  of  thyroid hormones.  Since your body's  energy  production  requires  certain  amounts of thyroid hormones, a drop  in hormone production leads to lower  energy levels. 
  8. 8. Hashimoto's thyroiditisHashimoto's thyroiditis In this autoimmune disorder, the body  attacks  thyroid  tissue.   The  tissue  eventually  dies  and  stops  producing  hormones. 
  9. 9. Removal of the thyroid gland:Removal of the thyroid gland: The thyroid may be surgically removed  or chemically destroyed as treatment  for hyperthyroidism.  FOR MORE INFO... 5174 W. Waco Drive Waco, TX 76710 Phone: 254­300­4183
  10. 10. Exposure to excessive amounts of iodideExposure to excessive amounts of iodide Cold  and  sinus  medicines,  the  heart  medicine  amiodarone,  or  certain  contrast  dyes  given  before  some  X­ rays  may  expose  you  to  too  much  iodine. You may be at greater risk for  developing hypothyroidism, especially  if  you  have  had  thyroid  problems  in  the past. 
  11. 11. LithiumLithium This drug has also been linked as a  cause of hypothyroidism.  
  12. 12. Cancer of the thyroid glandCancer of the thyroid gland is quite rare and occurs in less than 10% of  thyroid  nodules.   You  might  have  one  or  more  thyroid  nodules  for  several  years  before  they  are  determined  to  be  cancerous.   People  who  have  received  radiation  treatment  to  the  head  and  neck  earlier  in  life,  possibly  as  a  remedy  for  acne,  tend  to  have  a  higher­than­normal  propensity for thyroid cancer.
