T3 and T4 regulationThe production of thyroxine and triiodothyronine is regulated by thyroid-stimulatinghormone (TSH), released by the anterior pitutary. The thyroid and thyrotropes forma negative feedback loop: TSH production is suppressed when the T 4levels arehigh. The TSH production itself ismodulated by thyrotropin –releasinghormones (TRH), which is produced bythe hypothalamus and secreted at anincreased rate in situations such as coldexposure (to stimulate thermogenesis).TSH production is bluntedby somatostatin (SRIH), rising levels ofglucocorticoids and sexhormones (oestrogen and testesterone),and excessively high blood iodideconcentration.

Thyroid is small gland situated in the midline and base of the neck. The gland produces thyroid hormones T4 (Tetraiodothyronine/Thyroxine) and T3 (Triiodothyronine) that are absolutely essential for maintaining harmony of various body functions. Thyroid hormones govern the speed of body’s chemical reaction and have positive influence ongrowth of an individual (mental and physical). Because thyroid hormones affect growth,development and many cellular processes, excess of thyroid hormones has widespreadconsequences on the body.

Grave’s disease is actually an auto-immune disorder in which thebody’s immune system mistakenly starts attacking it’s own cells (in this case thethyroid gland) resulting in inflammation and enlargement of the gland (Goiter)and production of excess hormones. In some cases, there is a particular solitarynodule in the gland (called ‘Hot’ nodule) that is producing more hormones;there may also be multiple such nodules in the gland Inflammation of thethyroid gland (Thyroiditis) due to any other cause can also result inhyperthyroidism.

No. G 5882 www.phcindia.org, email@example.comDiagnosisMeasuring the level of thyroid-stimulating hormone (TSH), produced by the pituitarygland (which in turn is also regulated by the hypothalamuss TSH Releasing Hormone)in the blood is typically the initial test for suspected hyperthyroidism. A low TSH leveltypically indicates that the pituitary gland is being inhibited or "instructed" by the brainto cut back on stimulating the thyroid gland, having sensed increased levels of T 4 and/orT3 in the blood. In rare circumstances, a low TSH indicates primary failure of thepituitary, or temporary inhibition of the pituitary due to another illness (euthyroid sicksyndrome) and so checking the T4 and T3 is still clinically useful.

Omega 3 fatty acids are important for normal function of the thyroid glandand therefore should be included in the diet for hyperthyroidism. Flaxseed oiland ground flaxseeds are ideal sources for these essential fatty acids.2. Green leafy vegetables like mustard greens, spinach and kale are believed todepress the function of your thyroid and should be plentiful in your diet. Avoidthese vegetables if you are suffering from hypothyroidism symptoms.3. Members from the cruciferous vegetable family like cabbage, cauliflower andbroccoli will also help control your hyper thyroid symptoms by reducinghormone production. On the other hand try limiting these veggies in your diet ifyou are experiencing underactive thyroid symptoms.

Some root vegetables like rutabagas and turnips contain substances calledthioglucosides that inhibit the absorption of iodine and help people with overactivethyroid.5. Soybeans and soy products are also believed to help a diet for hyperthyroidism tocontrol an over-stimulated thyroid.6. Calcium and magnesium only working together in a ratio of 3:1 are an incredible wayto boost your diet for hyperthyroidism. Most foods contain too much added calciumrequiring magnesium for proper metabolism that ends up being taken from our body’sessential magnesium deposits ridding us of important nutrients.7. Thyroid weight loss is one of hyper thyroid symptoms and is associated withsignificant muscle mass loss for people affected by this condition. High protein dietplan combined with moderate exercise is believed to assist in rebuilding muscle bulk lostdue to hyperactive thyroid.
