Track 1:  Thyroid Gland

Thyroid Gland is one of the largest Endocrine glands in the body, and consists of two connected lobes. It is found in the anterior neck, below the laryngeal prominence. The thyroid gland controls rate of use of energy sources, protein synthesis, and controls the body's sensitivity to other hormones. It participates in these processes by producing thyroid hormones, the principal ones being thyroxine (T4) and triiodothyronine (T3), which is more active. These hormones regulate the growth and rate of function of many other systems in the body. The thyroid may be affected by some frequent thyroid diseases. Hyperthyroidism occurs when the gland produces excessive amounts of thyroid hormones, the most common cause being Graves' disease autoimmune disorder.

Track 2: Thyroid Hormone

The thyroid gland produces T4 and T3 utilizing iodide obtained either from dietary sources or from the metabolism of thyroid hormones and other iodinated compounds. About 100 µg of iodide is required on a daily basis to generate sufficient quantities of thyroid hormone. Thyroid hormones also influence linear growth, brain function including intelligence and memory, neural development, dentition, and bone development. Thyroid hormones are usually not dangerous for pregnant women or nursing mothers, but should be given under a doctor's supervision. In fact, if a woman who is suffering with hypothyroidism is left untreated, her baby is at a higher risk for birth defects. When pregnant, a woman with a low functioning thyroid will also need to increase her dosage of thyroid hormone.

Track 3: Thyroid Cancer & Treatment

Thyroid cancer is a disease in which malignant (cancer) cells form in the tissues of the thyroid gland. Most cancers are treated with removal of the thyroid gland (thyroidectomy), although small tumors that have not spread outside the thyroid gland may be treated by just removing the side of the thyroid containing the tumor (lobectomy). If lymph nodes are enlarged or show signs of cancer spread, they will be removed as well. Researchers have begun to develop newer drugs that specifically target the changes inside cells that cause them to become cancerous. Thyroid Surgery may also be called a resection. It is the main treatment for most people with thyroid cancer. Growing cells in general (including cancer cells), these drugs attack one or more specific targets on cancer cells.

Track 4: Thyroid Disorders: In Children, Teens and Adolescents

Thyroid problems are not rare in children, but they are not as common as parents. Hyperthyroidism an overactive thyroid gland, is seen only occasionally in new-borns. This condition is referred to as neonatal hyperthyroidism. Although thyroid disease occurs less frequently in children than in adults, the signs and symptoms can be similar. However, there are a few important differences that need to be brought to light. Congenital hypothyroidism is a disorder that affects infants at birth, and occurs in about 1 in 4000 live-born babies. It is characterised by the loss of thyroid function, due to the thyroid gland failing to develop normally. In some cases, the gland is totally absent. About 10 per cent of cases are caused by an enzyme defect leading to deficient hormones production, iodine deficiency and a brain pituitary gland abnormality. If the diagnosis is delayed, and immediate treatment is not given, congenital hypothyroidism can lead to growth and developmental defects, and severe mental retardation (cretinism).

Track 5: Thyroid Diagnosis & Case Reports

Several tests are available to evaluate a patient whose thyroid gland is obviously abnormal or whose symptoms or physical signs raise the possibility of thyroid disease. When used and interpreted appropriately, these diagnostic tools can identify the abnormality in nearly every case, but many factors contribute to suboptimal usage of thyroid tests in clinical practice. The serum TSH is the best initial test of thyroid function. Certain studies evaluate prevention and control of this endocrine system-related disease and improve patient quality of life. Case reports submitted should make a contribution to medical knowledge and must have educational value or highlight the need for a change in clinical practice or diagnostic/prognostic approaches.  Medical case reports should include relevant positive and negative findings from history, examination and investigation, and can include clinical photographs, provided these are accompanied by written consent to publish from the patient. Case reports should include an up-to-date review of all previous cases in the field.

Track 6: Thyroid Surgery & Care

Thyroid surgery is performed for several reasons and can include symptomatic thyroid nodules, recurrent thyroid cysts, goiter, Graves’ disease, and to rule out or treat thyroid cancer. The purpose of thyroid surgery is to remove part or all of the thyroid gland. The most common reason for thyroid surgery is the presence of nodules or tumors on the thyroid gland. Most nodules are benign, but some can be cancerous or pre-cancerous. Even benign nodules can cause problems if they grow large enough to obstruct the throat, or if they stimulate the thyroid to overproduce hormones (a condition called hyperthyroidism). Surgery can correct hyperthyroidism. Sometimes a nodule, inflammation, or swelling affects only half of the thyroid gland. When this happens, a doctor will remove only one of the two lobes. The part left behind should retain some or all of its function.

Track 7: Thyroid Research Advances

These initial reports suggested that a change in the treatment for primary hypothyroidism should be considered. In contrast to the investigations summarized above, there are 2 recent studies supportingT3/T4 combination therapy over T4 monotherapy for hypothyroidism. In a randomized, double-blind, crossover trial in 28 women with overt primary hypothyroidism. Advances and improvements in the diagnosis of hypothyroidism have meant that a larger number of patients are being detected with the condition. Economical and easily available therapy, in the form of thyroxine is available to most patients. Present-day thyroidologists find it easier to titrate doses and plan treatment regimes, based on serum thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) levels. This is in contrast to the clinical challenges that endocrinologists of the previous generation faced, when they had to titrate desiccated thyroid extract or tri-iodo-thyroxine doses based on clinical symptoms or on unreliable laboratory assays. The improvements in laboratory diagnosis, follow-up, monitoring and treatment, however, have not necessarily improved satisfaction levels of patients.

Track 8: Thyroid Medication & Remedies

A drug may be classified by the chemical type of the active ingredient or by the way it is used to treat a particular condition. Each drug can be classified into one or more drug classes. Disorders of the Endocrine system and metabolism, such as Diabetes Mellitus and hypothyroidism, may have wide-ranging, serious effects, and in some cases may be fatal if left untreated. Drug treatments can control the symptoms of these disorders and in many cases restore normal health to affected people. Thyroid drugs are thyroid hormones used to treat hypothyroidism. They are used to supplement the natural thyroid hormones in the body. Thyroid drugs are used in treatment of low thyroid activity, treating or suppressing different types of goiters and for diagnosing certain thyroid conditions. Sea foods, including seaweeds, are important sources of iodine, which is crucial to thyroid health and for preventing Thyroid disorders. Goiters used to be much more commonplace in our society until iodine was added to salt.

Importance & Scope

Millions of people are suffering and also trying all kinds of diets, pills, and treatments to clear their mental fog, to boost energy and lose weight. Unfortunately, they will all fail unless they learn how to heal the underlying thyroid issues.

Number of people suffering from thyroid disorders continues to rise each year. As reported by the World Health Organization (WHO), on an average 1 out of every 13 people more specifically 20 million to 750 million cases are diagnosed globally with thyroid diseases each year. There are more than 250 million cases with hyperthyroidism globally. Around 60% of the populations effected with thyroid disorder are uncaring of the situation. Female population is 5-6 times more likely to develop a thyroid disorder.

Many International Conferences meetings/ symposium and workshops have been organized on different topics related to the risk factors related to diabetes across the globe such as obesity conferences, weight loss conferences, Endocrine Conferences etc.

OMICS International Cordially invites all the Academic Scientists, Leading Endocrinologists, Diabetologists, Pediatricians, Surgeons, General Physicians, Dieticians, Primary Health care specialists, Internists, Pharmaceutical Industrial Delegates, talented young scientists, and student communities across the globe to attend Thyroid Conference, where all the aspects of Thyroid Disorders and Treatment will be discussed under single roof.

Why Germany (Munich)?

Thyroid disease is a common problem in Germany. It is estimated that in Germany, as an iodine deficient area, almost 20,000,000 people have thyroid problems. Thus it is easy to detect pathological findings or a malfunction of the thyroid. All that is necessary is a short history, physical examination, ultrasound scan and a few laboratory values.

Even though thyroid problems are very common, malignant findings are very rare. Because of the iodine deficiency in Germany enlargements of the thyroid (goitre) with or without nodes are the most common abnormalities to be found. Using ultrasound can quickly detect pathological changes and can even give a relatively good indication of the dignity (benign or malignant) of the findings. Laboratory findings help us to find out whether it is an over-active or under-active thyroid. With larger nodes we send you to a scintigraphy (radioactive imaging of the thyroid with very low radiation exposure) for further clarification. Most of the time nodular changes have only to be controlled once a year. Thyroid malfunctions are also a common finding. Hypo-function predominates these findings; they are usually caused by an autoimmune inflammatory response of the thyroid (Hashimoto thyroiditis). Rarer are thyroid hyper-functions which are also usually triggered autoimmune (Graves’ disease), or through hormone producing hot thyroid nodules. Overall with a few questions and examinations it can be detected whether there is a thyroid disease requiring treatment. Due to our longtime experience and our focus in the area of thyroid disease we look after far more than a thousand patients with thyroid problems permanently. Several other GPs use our knowledge by way of consultation.

Germans also had a high prevalence of diabetes with 7.9% of the population affected by the illness, compared to the OECD average of 6.9%. Men are at a greater risk of death than women, with 374 German men dying for every 100,000, compared to 269 for every 100,000 among women. A higher portion of Germans are overweight than in other OECD countries. The most recent data from the German Statistics Office showed that half of all Germans needed to lose weight.

Germans had lower rates of obesity, where people were at very unhealthy weights, than the OECD average, but the report observed that the rate of obesity has increased over time to 15.7% in 2013. 

Why to attend???

Medical doctors, patients and health care providers consider the prevention of Thyroid diseases as an essential tool to improve the general health status of the population. The proportions of people suffering from the disease are expected to increase in future according a recent statistical survey. Realizing this imperative, OMICS International is set to organize 2nd International Conference on Thyroid Disorders and Treatment for the upcoming year with a view to enhance research and promote awareness aiming in developing solutions for the challenges encountered.

Thyroid-2017 conference is comprised of 08 tracks designed to offer sessions including Hyper and Hypothyroidism- Treatment strategies, Thyroid Cancer & Surgery, Iodine Metabolism, Drug and Hormonal Therapy, Prevention, Production & Regulation of Thyroid Hormone, Disorders of the Parathyroid & Treatment, Thyroid Cancer & Treatment, Women Thyroid-Effects on Reproductive Health & Pregnancy, Diagnosis and Clinical Evaluation of Thyroid Disease, Thyroid in Children, Teens and Adolescents, Thyroid Metabolism and Iodine Uptake, Thyroid Hormone Therapy , Medications and Remedies, Thyroid Surgery- Challenges & Complexities of Thyroid Hormone Replacement, Natural supplements, Dietary solutions and other Alternative Treatment approaches enhancing new research in Thyroid Disease Treatment.

Glance at Market of Thyroid:

One in eight women will develop a thyroid disorder during her lifetime. And, the number of people suffering from thyroid disorders continues to rise each year. But the bigger problem is that nearly 60% of these people are completely unaware of their condition let alone how to heal it. Millions of people are suffering trying all kinds of diets, pills, and treatments to clear their mental fog, to boost energy and lose weight. More than 6million people in Philadelphia, 42 million people in the US and 750 million worldwide and have a Thyroid Disorder in the past 10 years. Some estimates are over 20 million in Philadelphia 70 million in US and over 1000 million worldwide, and growing in next 10 years.

About 43,210 cases of new thyroid cancers will be diagnosed in women. The other 13,250 will be found in men. Thyroid cancer rates have risen sharply in recent years and it is the fastest-increasing cancer in both men and women. Thyroid cancer has a 97% survival rate at the five-year mark. This means that out of every 100 people treated for thyroid cancer, 97 of them will be alive five years after treatment. About 1,000 women and 780 men will die of thyroid cancer. Epidemiological data from WHO suggests that there are more than 750 million cases globally with thyroid disorder.
