Nutrition for thyroid disease

Nutrition for thyroid disease

Nutrition for thyroid disease will depend on thyroid function. Depending on the functional state, euthyroid goiter (without dysfunction), hyperthyroid (increased function) and hypothyroid goiter (decreased function) are isolated. To clarify the function of the gland, all patients are recommended to examine its hormones. Most patients with nodules are in a euthyroid state, but over time, especially when a large amount of iodine with supplements is ingested, the production of hormones by autonomous formations (nodes) increases. Most often, with an enlarged…

DISEASES OF THE THYROID GLAND

DISEASES OF THE THYROID GLAND

The endocrine or thyroid gland is an organ that plays a decisive role in the regulation of metabolism (metabolism), a natural storage of iodine in the body and a resource for the production of its own hormones containing iodine. In case of any malfunction, the volume of iodine production by the thyroid gland either increases or decreases: symptoms of an excess of iodine (thyrotoxicosis, hyperthyroidism) or a deficiency of this element (hypothyroidism) are diagnosed. Thyroid dysfunction is a widespread disease…

What is a thyroid nodule? This is the part of the tissue of this organ that is limited by the capsule. What are the nodes of the thyroid gland? In terms of quantity, they are single and multiple. Sometimes there is a “soldering” of several elements that have a capsule – the so-called nodal conglomerate. If, in addition to the presence of a node, the gland increases in size, then they speak of a nodular goiter. The formation inside which…
