People needing to take vitamin D and calcium supplements due to very low levels soon after thyroid cancer surgery are likely to experience a decline in their quality of life (QOL) over at least the following year, a study suggests.
Our endocrine system is made up of the glands in our body that produce and release hormones. This includes the ovaries, testes, thyroid, parathyroid, adrenals, pituitary, pineal body, and pancreas. Cells that release hormones are also located in our gastrointestinal tract, heart, kidneys, and the placenta. Hormones are responsible for a variety of essential functions in our bodies. They affect our metabolism, growth, development, sexual and reproductive functions, as well as sleep, even our mood. Endocrine disruptors can imitate or block the actions of some hormones. They have the potential to negatively affect all those systems in our body affected by hormones. Some of the possible effects of endocrine disruptors include infertility, low birth weight, sexual dysfunction, early puberty, delayed puberty, obesity, heart disease and cancer.

London: A chemotherapy drug, widely used for treatment of ovarian, bladder, lung, thyroid and stomach cancers, has the potential to cause heart toxicity that can lead to congestive heart failure, a study led by a professor of Indian origin, has found.In the study, conducted on mice, doxorubicin induced fibrosis in the heart, increased the programmed cell death called apoptosis and impaired the pumping of the heart. The drug also caused a wasting syndrome in the heart and the spleen.
Women who are suffering from dysfunctional thyroid hormone levels in the first pregnancy phase tend to face an increased risk of getting into the hands of gestational diabetes. It is a form of diabetes that is typically diagnosed during the second trimester, as reported in the new study published in the endocrine society s Journal of Clinical Endocrinology amp; Metabolism. Thyroid dysfunction is common among pregnant women and has been linked to miscarriages, premature birth and adverse health outcomes in children.High thyroid hormone levels during pregnancy are also tied to the development of gestational diabetes that affects up to 2 to 10 percent of the pregnancies in the United States and increases the risk of premature delivery and high blood sugar levels in the mother. After birth, the baby might develop hypoglycemia or low blood sugar that can be very dangerous if not treated correctly.

The products potentially contain elevated levels of beef thyroid hormone, which can cause symptoms including increased thirst, urination and heart rate, weight loss and restlessness in dogs, the federal agency and J.M. Smucker said. Prolonged consumption could cause symptoms to increase in severity and include vomiting, diarrhea and rapid or labored breathing, at which point a visit to the veterinarian is advised.J.M. Smucker last month recalled some shipments of four brands of dog food, including the popular Kibbles 'N Bits and Gravy Train, after detecting low levels of a drug used to euthanize animals.
Do you frequently work in night shifts? Beware, you are more likely to develop Type 2 diabetes, a precursor to cardiovascular diseases, researchers have warned. Type 2 diabetes is a chronic condition that affects the way the body processes blood sugar (glucose). The study found that people working irregular or rotating shifts with usual night shifts were 44 per cent more likely to have Type 2 diabetes. In addition, compared to day workers, all shift workers were more likely to have Type 2 diabetes, except for permanent night shift workers, the researchers mentioned."We see a dose response relationship between frequency of night shift work and Type 2 diabetes, where the more often people do shift work, the greater their likelihood of having the disease, regardless of genetic predisposition," said Ceiine Vetter, Professor at the University of Colorado Boulder."This helps us understand one piece of the puzzle: frequency of night shift work seems to be an important factor," Vetter added.RELATED STORIES'Diabetes And Hypertension Rates High In India: Study''These 7 Superfoods Can Reverse Your Diabetes'For the study, published in the journal Diabetes Care, the team examined data from more than 270,000 people, including 70,000 who provided in depth lifetime employment information and a sub group of more than 44,000 for whom genetic data were available.More than 6,000 people in the sample population had Type 2 diabetes.Using information on more than 100 genetic variants that are associated with Type 2 diabetes, the research team developed a genetic risk score that they used to assign a value to each participant.The results showed that those with the highest genetic risk scores were almost four times as likely to develop Type 2 diabetes compared to individuals who had lower genetic risk scores.According to the World Health Organisation (WHO) the global prevalence of diabetes has nearly doubled since 1980, rising from 4.7 per cent to 8.5 per cent in the adult population. The majority of people with diabetes are affected by Type 2 diabetes.Here are some more risk factors of diabetes:1. Family history (both genetic and childhood habits)2. Sedentary lifestyle3. Body fat (especially on the middle)4. Age factor5. Gestational diabetes6. Giving birth to a baby weighing over 9 pounds7. Hyperthyroidism8. Polycystic Ovary Syndrome (PCOS)9. Gluten intolerance10.

Pregnant women with rheumatoid arthritis may be concerned that they might pass rheumatoid arthritis or other related diseases on to their children. To look into the issue, Line J #248;lving, MHS of Odense University Hospital and her colleagues conducted a nationwide study with long term follow up of all children born in Denmark during a 25 year period. This included 2106 children born to women with rheumatoid arthritis, and 1,378,539 children born to women without rheumatoid arthritis.The researchers found that the risk of being diagnosed with several diseases in childhood and adolescence increased when the mother was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis before pregnancy. Specifically, the presence of rheumatoid arthritis during pregnancy was linked with a 2.2 times increased risk of thyroid disease, a 1.6 times increased risk of epilepsy, and a 2.9 times increased risk of rheumatoid arthritis in offspring.
Biopsies in particular, can take forever. The scientific standard for determining whether or not a tissue sample is cancerous is called mass spectrometry, and it is not simple. Large machines in far off labs run a sample through a series of complicated processes, then spit out data that require specialized training to understand. Final results can take days, or even weeks to get.Scientists out of the University of Texas Austin have a solution that could do all that in 10 seconds flat. The MasSpec pen, ” as they are calling it, looks a lot like a big, white sharpie with a cord running down the back. When doctors touch the tip of the pen to a suspect tissue sample, and press a pedal, the pen releases a small droplet of water. The pen then sucks up the water along with some residual tissue into an onsite mass spectrometer and analyzes everything right there on the spot. In lab settings, using mice and human tissue samples, researchers were able to correctly identify lung, ovary, thyroid, and breast cancers and do so with around 93% accuracy. The team is currently working to add more types into the mix.
People exposed to high levels of flame retardants were more than twice as likely to develop thyroid cancer
Arrival of ultrasoundUp to 90 percent of the thyroid cancer cases diagnosed in recent decades are, instead, tumours that are "very unlikely" to cause any symptoms at all, let alone death, according to findings published in The New England Journal of Medicine.
Hopes for the medicine had already been reduced after it failed in another study for treating a rare cancer of the eye in July 2015, although it may still have a role in a type of thyroid cancer and in cancers growing along nerve tissue. Selumetinib is viewed as less important than AstraZeneca's recently launched cancer drugs Tagrisso and Lynparza, and its closely watched experimental product durvalumab.
Thyroid disease in women negatively affects puberty, pregnancy, menopause, and fertility. The thyroid gland is responsible for the production of hormones that help the body s many functions to properly work. Thyroid diseases can affect women at any age and, depending on the condition, can lead to symptoms such as weight loss, early menopause, and even fertility issues.There are numerous ways that thyroid diseases affect women s health including:
