 About thyroid gland and thyroid diseases

In humans, the thyroid gland is a tiny butterfly-shaped endocrine gland located at the anterior portion of the neck, wrapped around the trachea. It is an endocrine gland that constantly produces and secretes thyroid hormones, namely thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), into the bloodstream. Thyroid hormones play a vital role in regulating the body’s functions like metabolism, growth, and development of the human body. Therefore, deregulated thyroid hormone levels are detrimental to the overall functioning of individuals.

 

An imbalance in thyroid hormone secretion can lead to hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. Also, nowadays, autoimmune disorders like Hashimoto's disease and Graves' disease are the leading causes of thyroid disease.

  • Hyperthyroidism: It describes a condition resulting from an over active thyroid gland producing excess amounts of T3 and T4 or both. It is mainly caused by Grave’s disease and other conditions like toxic multinodular goiter and toxic adenomas resulting in thyrotoxicosis
  • Hypothyroidism: In contrast to hyperthyroidism, hypothyroidism results from an underactive thyroid gland, which is unable to produce enough hormones T3 and T4. It is mainly caused by an autoimmune condition called Hashimoto's disease. Besides, thyroidectomy, radiation therapy, and certain medications can also cause hypothyroidism.
  • Both hypo- and hyperthyroidism affect females more as compared with males.

 

Can thyroid diseases be cured?

Thyroid disease requires lifelong treatment to restore and maintain normal thyroid function. Presently, there is no permanent cure for thyroid diseases. However, disease progression and the signs and symptoms of the disease can be effectively controlled by medications and surgery. Hypothyroidism condition can be treated effectively by hormone replacement therapy with Levothyroxine. On the other hand, hyperthyroidism is treated with antithyroid medications such as Carbimazole and Propylthiouracil to block excess thyroid hormone synthesis. In some cases, surgical resection of the thyroid gland, partially or totally, followed by radioactive iodine treatment is required to treat hyperthyroidism.

Thyroid hormones are the chemical substance produced and secreted by the thyroid glands in humans. Thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) are collectively called thyroid hormones that play a vital role in regulating body metabolism. Also, thyroid hormones play a crucial role in brain development.
Thyroid diseases are the group of diseases that results in an imbalance in the synthesis and release of thyroid hormones into the bloodstream. It includes hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism, Graves disease, thyroiditis, thyroid cancer, goiter, and Hashimotos disease.
Thyroid diseases can affect anyone of any age. The prevalence of the disease is more in females compared to males. Others include: · People with a family history of thyroid diseases · Patients taking certain medications like amiodarone · Patients suffering from other autoimmune conditions like type-1 diabetes mellitus, systemic lupus erythematosus, and Sjögren syndrome · Persons treated for thyroid diseases or cancer like thyroidectomy or radiation therapy in the past. · People more than 60 years old, especially women
Thyroid disease samples comprise blood samples such as human serum and plasma collected from thyroid disease patients, including hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. The samples are subjected to routine thyroid function tests like a thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) or thyrotropin, triiodothyronine (T3), thyroxine (T4), and thyroglobulin (Tg). Additionally, serological testing is performed for autoantibodies like TSH receptor antibodies (TRAb), anti-thyroid peroxidase antibodies (aTPO / MAK), and anti-thyroglobulin antibodies (aTg / TAK) and samples are stored at <-18 °C in state-of-the-art biobanks.
