  • Depression, Anxiety Linked With Chronic Thyroid Disease

    Depression, Anxiety Linked With Chronic Thyroid Disease

    New research has discovered a strong association between depression, anxiety disorders and autoimmune thyroiditis (AIT), a chronic thyroid condition affecting approximately 10 percent of the population. Scientists at Friedrich-Alexander-Universität Erlangen-Nürnberg (FAU) have now proven that special treatment could help many sufferers, especially women. Depression, Anxiety Linked With Chronic Thyroid Disease Depression and anxiety are among […]

  • Replacement Therapy With Levothyroxine in Hypothyroidism Patients

    Replacement Therapy With Levothyroxine in Hypothyroidism Patients

    Those who take replacement thyroid hormone may have more comorbidities and lower quality of life than those who don’t take the hormone, shows new study. The study was based on a large population study from the University of Groningen in the Netherlands. The study findings will be presented at ENDO 2018, the 100th annual meeting […]

  • Natural Product to Treat Thyroid Disorder, Coming Soon

    Natural Product to Treat Thyroid Disorder, Coming Soon

    The Central Marine Fisheries Research Institute (CMFRI) is all set to launch a natural product from the sea to treat thyroid disorder. Speaking at a function held at the Institute here Wednesday, A. Gopalakrishnan, Director of CMFRI, said the marine nutraceutical product developed by the Institute for thyroid dysfunction is in the final stage of […]

  • Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Linked to Lower Thyroid Hormone Levels

    Chronic Fatigue Syndrome Linked to Lower Thyroid Hormone Levels

    Link between chronic fatigue syndrome (CFS) symptoms and lower levels of thyroid hormones found by a new research. The causes of CFS which was previously unknown was now found to be associated with lower thyroid hormones, but may be distinct from thyroidal disease. This will pave a way for treating the debilitating illness for which […]

  • Male Thyroid Cancer Survivors at High Risk for Heart Disease

    Male Thyroid Cancer Survivors at High Risk for Heart Disease

    Male thyroid cancer survivors have an almost 50 percent higher risk of developing cardiovascular disease (CVD) than women, while thyroid cancer survivors with obesity have a 41 percent higher risk, stated study published in the Endocrine Society’s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism. Male Thyroid Cancer Survivors at High Risk for Heart Disease Thyroid cancer […]

  • Thyroid Cancer Screening Improves with New Optical Modules

    Thyroid Cancer Screening Improves with New Optical Modules

    New consistent and cost-effective device screening thyroid nodules for thyroid cancer has been developed by a team of international scientists. Patient’s likelihood of recovery depends on early diagnosis of thyroid cancer. Current screening instruments can yield inaccurate results due to poor sensitivity. Incomplete information to make diagnostic decisions and recommend treatments can lead to patients […]

  • Alzheimer Risk in African Americans Increases with Thyroid Gene Variation

    Alzheimer Risk in African Americans Increases with Thyroid Gene Variation

    Increased risk of Alzheimer’s disease is seen in African Americans with common genetic variation, according to a study led by scientists at Rush University Medical Center. Compared to European Americans with the same variation, African Americans are at a higher risk. The findings of the study are published in the Journal of Clinical Endocrinology and […]

  • Gene to Halt Progress of Thyroid Cancer Identified

    Gene to Halt Progress of Thyroid Cancer Identified

    Potential target gene to halt the progression of thyroid cancer has been identified by recent research. Restoring the levels of 52 microRNAs in the tumor could be a novel therapeutic strategy to halt the progression of thyroid cancer. Gene to Halt Progress of Thyroid Cancer Identified Thyroid cancer is a disease with good cure rates […]

  • Insights into the Development and Treatment of Thyroid Cancer

    Insights into the Development and Treatment of Thyroid Cancer

    The largest-ever study of thyroid cancer genetics has identified specific genes that may drive these cancers and thus provide attractive targets for treatment. The study has also found that in several samples of advanced differentiated and anaplastic thyroid cancer (the most aggressive and dangerous forms of the disease), mechanisms meant to repair faulty DNA had […]
