Natural Cure For Hypothyroidism

  • 18 settembre 2019 07:13:48 CEST
    Patients with hyperthyroidism normally have thyroid glands that are two to three times larger than a normal thyroid gland. These hyperthyroid glands are characterized by increased cell proliferation and infolding of the follicular cell lining into the follicles, increasing cell population even more. These hyperthyroid cells also secrete thyroid hormone at a rate faster than normal thyroid cells.

    These changes may also be found in instances where there is a large amount of circulating thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH) in the body. However, in hyperthyroidism, TSH levels are decreased due to the inhibition of their secretion by the already increased amount of circulating thyroid hormone in the body.

    In normal conditions, an increase of thyroid hormone signals the pituitary gland to stop secreting TSH and consequently, the thyroid gland stops secreting thyroid hormone due to lack of stimulus by the decrease in TSH. This is not so in hyperthyroidism. In hyperthyroidism, a similar substance to TSH may be found in circulation -- thyroid-stimulating immunoglobulin or TSI. They have a prolonged stimulatory effect on the thyroid gland and causes thyroid cells to continue secretion despite the decreased levels of TSH.
