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.

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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.
