Thyroid dysfunction

Please, estimate, if you have any of these symptoms:

  • Fatigue, especially at the awakening, and less by the evening
  • Weight changes (reduction or increase), first of all, around the stomach
  • Depression or melancholy
  • Chill (sensation of cold) of hands and feet, or vice versa a sensation of warm excess and even heat
  • High cholesterol level
  • Spasmisity, pain of muscles
  • Propensity to locks; dense excrements
  • Arthritis; pain in joints
  • Bad memory; other neurologic symptoms

If any of these symptoms are adherent for you, it may points out on presence of the subclinical thyroid dysfunction.

Subclinical thyroid dysfunction

this is condition of such thyroid functional intensity, when the hormonal level of the thyroid gland is in the normal limits.

Condition of the thyroid dysfunction is much more popular, than it is accepted to consider. It is connected with the fact, that from the laboratory point of view it is impossible to define the state of dysfunction, as during this initial stage the changes of the hormonal thyroid gland level are still absent, and technically it is extremely difficult to define metabolism changes on the cellular level.

Subclinical thyroid dysfunction may be latent from the physician-endocrinologist at the standard diagnostics. Here is how frequently it turns out. Physician sees blood test with good hormonal indexes, and he simply doesnt pay attention to some disease attributes in state of health and general patients condition.

In response to changes in conditions, in which a person is, a functional activity in muscles and internal organs cells is increasing. Naturally these structures require more energy, and correspondingly more thyroid hormones (T3 and T4), which help to acquire this energy. In response to increasing need in hormones, the thyroid gland strenuously starts developing the required hormonal quantity. But such intense work gradually exhausts the thyroid gland. The organism starts regulation hormonal distribution. Advantage is given to the more important organs and processes. The other organs take less. It is revealed as symptoms, pointed out in the beginning of this article.

Increase in the thyroid hormonal need from the party of internal organs raises load on the thyroid gland. But while the thyroid gland manages with the increased organisms needs, the hypophysis, controlling the thyroid (located in the brain), wont change hormonal TSH-level (thyrotropic hypophysis hormone). The physician will see norm in the blood tests. Inconsiderable displacement of hormonal levels, but in the normal limits, may be one of the possible symptoms of the thyroid condition being considered. That is why the physician-endocrinologist wont undertake anything for correction of the subclinical thyroid dysfunction. And it is really impossible to define a state of the endocellular processes in muscles and internal organs in the usual clinical laboratory. Besides that, majority of specialists is not orientated on estimation of such thyroid dysfunction. Unfortunately, physicians often pay attention only to more expressed changes in the thyroid gland.

Nevertheless, there are rather essential diagnostic criteria. Part of them is presented in the beginning of this article. Besides that, a regular temperature measurement by means of mercury thermometer in the oral cavity within two weeks at 14 oclock is possible. Tendency to the temperature changes more than on 0.3-0.5 Ѱ may be considered as positive index. Next important criteria this is propensity to the comparatively low arterial pressures figures, in particular, from 110/70 mm. of a mercury column and less.

This state is defined during the thermography by temperature increase in projection above the thyroid gland, which is an evidence of organs activization, i.e. of the thyroid functional intensity. After any period of time such thyroid gland state will be defined during US by the general (diffuse) increase of its tissue or nodular appearance. In this case the speech will be about diffuse and nodular thyroid goiter.

At the subclinical thyroid dysfunction you shouldnt prescribe medications, containing thyroid hormones. They are quite enough for a healthy organism. Introduction of such medications will reduce load on the thyroid gland, but wont change such conditions, due to which the gland is in the functional intension.

The medical practice of medications prescription, containing iodine, will be also incorrect. It is also quite sufficient for the hormonal development, formula of which doesnt contain such chemical element. The laboratory actually defines it.

The correction of such internal controlling systemss state as a state of adrenal glands, red bone brain, digestive tract (especially of stomach and of duodenal gut), of vegetative nervous systems and sexual structures centers may be considered important during the treatment of the subclinical thyroid dysfunction state. At the same time, you should pay attention to way of life. On the rhythm sleep wakefulness, on the qualitative part of the accepted food, physical activity etcetera.

The more effective recovery is possible at the beginning of the changes development. Later more medical efforts and time are usually required.
