About the Journal

ICV Value: 73.71

A Thyroid disorder is a medical condition impairing the function of the thyroid. Imbalance in production of thyroid hormones arises from dysfunction of the thyroid gland itself, the pituitary gland, which produces thyroid-stimulating hormone, or the hypothalamus, which regulates the pituitary gland via thyrotrophic-releasing hormone. Concentrations of TSH increase with age, requiring age-corrected tests. Hypothyroidism affects between three and ten percent of adults, with incidence higher in women and the elderly. Journal of Thyroid Disorders and Therapy focused on the areas such as autoimmune-thyroiditis, thyroid-cancer, thyroid-nodule, hashimotos thyroiditis, hyperthyroidism, papillary-thyroid-carcinoma, subclinical-hypothyroidism, medullary-thyroid-cancer, follicular-thyroid, thyroid-hormone-imbalance, iodine deficency,Graves's disease,hyperthyroidism, hyperthyroidism symptoms,TSH test, levothyroxine, thyroid cancer, hypothyroidsim symptoms, Thyrotoxicosis, Thyroid Symptoms, Hashimoto's Thyroiditis,Thyroid gland, Iodine Supplements,TSH levels, Thyroxine, Goitre, Thyroidectomy, Parathyroid Hormone, Thyroid Nodules.

Journal of Thyroid disorders and Therapy is an open access Journal which ensures standards through expertise Editorial board members. It provides an immense opportunity for scientists to publish their work as original articles, review articles, case reports, short communication. Peer review process is designed in such way, where the experts provide guidance through their comments to improve the standards of the paper, which  serves as a stepping stone to achieve healthy impact factor.

This scholarly publishing is using Editorial Manager System for quality in the review process. Editorial Manager is an online manuscript submission, review and tracking system. Review process is performed by the editorial board members of Dentistry Journal or outside experts; at least two independent reviewer’s approval followed by the editor is required for the acceptance of any citable manuscript. Authors may submit manuscripts and track their progress through the system, hopefully to publication. Reviewers can download manuscripts and submit their opinions to the editor. Editors can manage the whole submission/review/revise/publish process.

Thyroid Gland

The thyroid gland is small butterfly shape gland located in the lower part of the neck, below the Adam's apple. Thyroid gland produces thyroid hormones are thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) which plays a vital role in regulating body metabolism. The thyroid uses iodine, to make its hormones. Deficiency of thyroid hormones leads to thyroid disorders.

Hashimoto's Thyroiditis

The thyroid gland produces hormones that coordinate many of your body's activities. Hashimoto's disease is a condition in which immune system attacks body’s own tissues i.e.. thyroid, a small gland located at the base of your neck below Adam's apple. Hashimoto's Thyroiditis leads to hypothyroidism, a condition in which the thyroid does not produce sufficient hormones for the body.

Hyperthyroidism

The thyroid gland produces thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3) that play an important role in the body functions. If thyroid gland produces too much T4 and T3, it leads to hyperthyroidism. Hyperthyroidism is an endocrine disorder leads, to excessive production of thyroid hormone due to over active thyroid gland. Symptoms involve rapid heartbeat, weight loss, excessive sweating, anxiety and nervousness.

Hypothyroidism

Decreased production of thyroid hormone by thyroid gland results in hypothyrodisim. Symptoms includes tiredness, weight gain, dry skin, constipation, muscle weakness, depression, impaired memory and cretinism in children. Hypothyroidism is diagnosed by measuring the levels of thyroid –stimulating horomone and thyroxine levels in blood.

TSH Test

A TSH test is performed to identify the amount of thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) in blood. TSH is a hormone produced by the pituitary gland, which tells the thyroid gland, to make and release thyroid hormones into the blood.Thyroid tests involve series of blood tests used to measure function of thyroid gland. Blood tests used to measure TSH, T4, T3 and Free T4 are readily available and widely used.

Thyroid Cancer

The thyroid gland produces thyroid hormones which plays key role in normal regulation of the body metabolism. The cause of thyroid cancer is unknown, but it may be due to exposure to high levels of radiation, and certain hereditary syndromes. Thyroid cancer includes papillary, follicular, medullary and anaplastic thyroid cancer.

Iodine Supplements

Iodine is essential element for normal body regulation which plays key role in our DNA, it boosts our immune system, stabilizes our metabolism. Iodine is a required by thyroid gland, for synthesis T3 and T4 hormones, which are important for regulating body’s metabolism. Iodine deficiency can be treated by administering iodine supplements.

TSH Levels

Hypothalamus releases a substance called thyrotropin-releasing hormone (TRH) which stimulates the production of TSH by pituitary gland. A thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) blood test is performed to check for thyroid gland related problems. TSH causes the thyroid gland to produce two hormones namely triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4).

Parathyroid Hormone

PTH controls the levels calcium and phosphorus in the blood. PTH is four pea-sized glands that lie behind the thyroid gland. A parathyroid hormone (PTH) blood test identifies the level of parathyroid hormone in the blood. This test is used to detect hyperparathyroidism, to check the status of chronic kidney disease, to find the cause of abnormal calcium levels.

Thyroidectomy

Thyroidectomy is the removal of complete or a part of thyroid gland. It produces hormones that regulate body metabolism. Thyroidectomy is used to treat thyroid disorders, such as overactive thyroid (hyperthyroidism), noncancerous enlargement of the thyroid (goiter) and cancer. If only a part of thyroid is removed (partial thyroidectomy), thyroid may be able to function normally after surgery. If entire thyroid is removed (total thyroidectomy) it requires daily treatment with thyroid hormone to replace your thyroid's natural function.

Iodine Deficiency

Iodine is a trace element found in human body, which is involved in the synthesis of thyroid hormones. Iodine is a vital for growth and development, deficiency may result in many growth abnormalities. Variation of thyroid hormones results in either hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism. Decrease levels of iodine results in thyroid gland enlargement known as Goiter. Iodine deficiency may lead to various abnormalities like goiter, hypothyroidism, decreased fertility rate, cretinism and mental retardation.

Levothyroxine

Levothyroxine is given as a replacement for hormone, normally produced by your thyroid gland in order to regulate the body's energy and metabolism. Levothyroxine is indicated when thyroid does not produce enough of this hormone on its own. Levothyroxine is used to treat hypothyroidism (low thyroid hormone), goiter (enlarged thyroid gland). Levothyroxine is also used in surgery and radioactive iodine therapy, for the treatment of thyroid cancer.

Hypothyroidism Symptoms

Hypothyroidism is an endocrine disorder also known as underactive thyroid disease, in which thyroid gland does not make required amount of thyroid hormone. Symptoms includes constipation, dry skin, coarse and thinning hair, brittle nails, a yellowish tint to the skin, feeling tired, sluggish, or weak, cold skin, slow body movements and heavy or irregular menstrual periods, inability to tolerate cold, memory problems and depression.

Thyrotoxicosis

An excess of thyroid hormones in the blood leads to thyrotoxicosis. It may be due to over production by Thyroid gland (as in Graves' disease), overproduction which may originate outside the thyroid or due to leakage from the gland. Symptoms include anxiety, sweating, tremor and rapid heartbeat, sudden rise in the metabolic rate; coma and death may occur.

Thyroid Treatment

Hypothyroidism is treated by administering thyroid replacement drugs. Hyperthyroidism is treated by reducing the excess hormone levels by administering ant thyroid drugs or by radioactive iodine (radioiodine ablation) treatment or by surgical treatment (complete or partial removal of thyroid) termed as thyroidectomy.

Goiter

Enlargement of thyroid gland leads to goiter. The thyroid gland enlarges in order to comply with the pituitary’s demands. Symptoms includes enlargement of the throat, which may range from a small lump to a huge mass, breathing problems, swallowing problems. Goiter may be of two types endemic and sporadic goiter.
