  1. 1. thyroid glands grow larger than normal from the lack of iodine Goiter 1

  4. 4. How Does the Disease Affect Homeostasis? 4 3 Causing the precursors to the hormone to build up. Causing a Goiter. Without Iodine T4 cannot be released.
  5. 5. Characteristics of Disease <ul><li>A tight feeling in your throat </li></ul><ul><li>Coughing </li></ul><ul><li>Difficulty swallowing </li></ul><ul><li>Difficulty breathing </li></ul><ul><li>Dizziness </li></ul><ul><li>Hoarseness </li></ul><ul><li>Visible Swelling </li></ul>9

  9. 9. Treatment&Prevention <ul><li>Observation </li></ul><ul><li>Medications- Levothyroxine </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Helps simulate hormones in pituitary glands </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Surgery </li></ul><ul><li>Radioactive iodine </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Taken orally </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Destroys Thyroid cells </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Taking a healthy amount of iodine helps prevent goiters </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Can be taken through iodized salt </li></ul></ul>7 10 By Minneford
