Global. DE EN Our share price {{ price }} Thyroid awareness: what happens when this little gland goes haywire. Some infants are born without a thyroid gland or under-developed thyroid gland, known as congenital hypothyroidism. These babies with this disorder do not have enough thyroid hormone for their body’s needs, however if correctly diagnosed, in the first few days after birth, and with correct treatment, the disorder can be managed. 10.

functioning of the thyroid gland plays an important role in a mother’s life. Around 1.6 billion people worldwide are thought to be at risk of thyroid disorders1 that affect the small butterfly-shaped gland in the neck.

What happens to the NORMAL parathyroids when you have one bad parathyroid gland? Well that answer is now clear also. In the overwhelming majority of people with hyperparathyroidism, they will have one bad gland and 3 normal glands. The one bad gland is big and producing PTH all day long making the calcium go high.

Even after your pituitary gland shuts down in response to your body having too much T3 and T4, the stimulation from the TSI ensures your thyroid will continue to overproduce hormones and keep you hyperthyroid.

When the blood level of thyroid hormone rises, the hypothalamus stops secreting TRH, and the decline in this hormone causes a slowdown in secretion of TSH by the anterior pituitary 4.

Once the tumor is destroyed and the artificially high levels of thyroid hormones decline, the negative feedback is removed on the hypothalamus and pituitary, allowing TRH and TSH to again be produced, which stimulates the atrophied normal tissue to begin functioning again.

As TSH levels rise, the gland enlarges; when the condition demanding increased thyroid hormone resolves, TSH levels usually return to normal and the gland slowly returns to its original size.

  • Just wonderful, I’ve been looking for “triiodothyronine” for a while now, and I think this has helped. Ever heard of Yannabarn Vanish Thyroid (do a google search )? Ive heard some interesting things about it and my co-worker got great success with it.

  • I felt like dying a couple of months ago since I was very sick, fatigue, feeling cold, and gaining weight. I discovered hypothyroidism solution “numza hope space” (Google it) and followed all the advice. My life turned around the first week. I really feel more alive.

  • Wow. You’re an artist! I just created a thyroid anatomy, physiology and pathology video but my illustrations are nowhere as good as yours!

  • I used to take prescribed medication for my thyroid malfunction one month in November 2009, because i always have a good metabolism and good appetite from my childhood until now, but unsure which kind of thyroid problems I used to have, or still having it or not. But I knew I have been experiencing my post menaupose stage, also part of hormones related problems as well as my untreated unstable unmanageable changeable blood glucose worsening problem and aggressively affecting my short sighted eyes as cataracts also due to aging plus I am having my unprofessional ivf made abdominal abnormal pregnancy with my very very slow growing far undersized abnormal unborn baby, also may cause my hormones fluctuated as a grumpy nasty person with drowsy unworkable head. Hopefully I can get over this problem sooner

  • I was very confused with hypo and hyper… now I think I got it hypothyroidism
    Decreases APPETITE
    Decreases digestion
    Decreases metabolic rt, absorptn
    Decreased body heat
    Decreases breath rate, heart rate
    And so causes FATIGUE leads to
    Increases APPETITE
    Increases digestion
    Increases metabolic rt,absptn,
    Increases hrt rt, breath rt
    Increased body heat
    Even though,he have increased appetite and digestion, energies are completely consumed for the above purpose,and so causes WEIGHT LOSS.
    Am i right..

  • …Mr. Duracell bunny scares me a bit… I feel like he’s gonna look into the camera and address me directly by calling my name…

  • Could you imagine if ‘munchhausen by proxy’ label had stuck? No doctor would have ever listened to her and she could have had child protective services take her daughter. Thank goodness for the last endocrinologist.

    Over productive adrenal glands causing Cushing syndrome. Yet doctors over the years had tested for everything…. sure.

  • there is nothing wrong with this guy he just excited, this is the interaction between genes and environment this is the way he talk…Thanks a lot Stanford for this lectures im an electrical engineer but I learned a lot about my self and people

  • they found a tumor and there taking it out on april 6th any advice when did you go back to work how many days did you stay in the hospital when can you eat when can you take showers please any advice the mri showed that my daughter had a size of a walnut is it safe to say they will get all of her tumor out!!! did u get back hair and did your hair break off well my daughter hair start being healthy again after they put her on hormones pills

  • Basicly, me not breathing well resaulted in overproduction of T. Hormons. Cause is lack of oxygen. Wow this video is seriously educative! Thank you.

  • Hi everyone! I was wondering if there has been anyone that has had the surgery,and what their recovery was like?
    I was diagnosed with the tumor in December of 2015…three different failed attempts at medication I am going to see the surgeon then end of this month to discuss about surgery.

    I am turning 17 next month and I am very scared and was just hoping if anyone would be willing to share their recovery and an update on how they are now after it?
    Thank you❤

  • “Thyropedia: An Encyclopedia of Thyroidology” is an unavoidable book. It provides each and every information on any thyroid problem.
    Google “thyropedia”

  • Thank you for the very informative video. May I suggest to add videos about the best food to eat and avoid for people with Hypothyroidism

  • Doctors who just don’t want to treat certain types of people because the doctors don’t believe what they’re hearing and to get the family off the doctors back by branding the mother with munchhousen by proxy put the daughter at risk the doctors just thought that the mother was mental. How horrible for the mother to hear that said about her. Some doctors are so ignorant that they don’t want anything to do with a follow up. This behaviour I believe is one reason why patients die and then when an autopsy is performed the doctors probably think oh the patient did have something wrong with them it wasn’t in their head.

  • Thank you for the clear and concise explanation of the thyroid gland and common diseases of over and under production of thyroid glands.

  • I just wanted to inform you how much I appreciate this hypothyroidism solution “Wοzο†ο nazu” (Google it). Also how much it has helped me. I really feel sooooooo much better. I`m surprised that this solution could help me feel great again after 15 years of experiencing the condition.

  • Help us make more videos like this! Support us on Patreon and get FREE downloads and other great rewards:
    Thank you so much!

  • thanks for your video, i have a question that how hyperthyroid causes diarrhea? infact that in hyperthyroid there is increase stimulation of sympathetic, as we know sympathetic stimulation causes reduce gi motility.

  • All members please drop your what’s app number. I’ll make a what’s app diagnosis nd treatment consultant group..don’t forget to put Ur name nd number….

  • It’s frustrating when doctors dismiss your symptoms due to your age. I know that they have a lot of differential diagnoses but I think they must strive to consider even the most unlikely scenario.

  • I like how they managed to split their lecture not in the normal 50-50 way, but in a more smooth and elegant way. Everyone who ever had a public talk knows how much it’s difficult to make things seems soft and smooth. Both instructors are passionate and good each in their own way. Thank you Stanford!

  • i seriously think i might also have cushing’s syndrome. all those symptoms except for the high blood pressure and abnormal appetite (i have low blood pressure) sound very similar to what i go through. i mostly eat low carb meals in controlled portions but my weight keeps increasing every year.

  • The thyroid gland is a vital hormone gland: It plays a major role in the metabolism, growth and development of the human body. It helps to regulate many body functions by constantly releasing a steady amount of thyroid hormones into the bloodstream

  • Paul Revere said something like the lobsterbacks are coming or the red coats are coming. It is very unlikely he yelled the british are coming because in those days everyone thought of themselves as British.

    I’m pretty sure I have this or something close to this like a prolactinoma. I get the diabetes inspidis (thirst badly sometimes so sever I can drink a gallon and i’m still super super thirsty) Very frequent urination. Urinating in bed (a little bit sometimes). Have these odd sensations in my head. Loss of vision with sensations. One eye will seem like I can’t see out of it and then I’ll close the other one to confirm myself I can still see out of it (some will alternate one or the other). At night time right before sleep I’ll almost go completely blind in one or the other rarely but sometimes both.

    Extreme confusion at times with a lack of vision and hearing. Vision of colors gets very enhanced at times only for a brief few seconds. Feeling of terror or fear on a regular basis (not a thought but a sense or feeling ps. TERRIFYING). Low attention span at times (very hard to sit and read things). Poor short term memory and memory loss with previous events in my life (almost all of it). Can’t feel the left side of my body at times or there’s an awful feeling I’ve never experienced before in them (left arm and leg mostly). Sometimes I can wake up and not feel my entire body. Sometimes It feels like I’m not INSIDE my body. Pressure inside my head at times (feels like inside the skull around brain). Tingling inside the back part of my head and other areas as well sometimes (Crawling feeling). Tingling in face (somewhat rare but lately I’ve definitely noticed this).

    Stopping mid conversation and ask what we were talking about right in middle of sentence over and over and over all day (this has gotten a little better though). Staring into the distance at random times. Sense of impending doom (95% a former symptom). Muscle ridgidity (can’t work out like I used to). Muscles weakness. Fatigue. Waking up 10-15 times in sleep. Severe insomnia for a few weeks. Feeling like I’m extremely high in my sleep (not a good feeling but almost like I smoked some adhesive or carbon fiber or something). Feeling like I can feel myself dead in my sleep ( if I dream about falling off a cliff and dying I’ll feel myself dead somehow). Moaning in my sleep (like when someone gets injured really badly in some sort of an accident).

    Lower to mid back numbness and heat from lower back as well sometimes. Upper spine or upper mid back where top vertabre is is numb as well. People look fake to me (might be a vision problem). Severe weight gain. Bloating, distended stomach. Constipation. Chills in the mornings after waking up. Severe anxiety at times. Zero sex drive for a few months and recently it has sky rocketed.

  • I’m so happy I found this video. I doctor is referring me to a endocrinologist because she feels this is what’s going on. I have the headaches and I don’t have my monthly cycle. Thank you so much

  • Myxedema happens in adult due to hypothyroidism and its counterpart cretinism happens in mentioned that this happens due to hyperthyroidism.

  • I had a tumor and cyst on my pituitary gland. I had them removed by transphenoidal approach. My symptoms were migraines, no period and breast leakage.

  • I too have a pituitary tumor acromegaly and will have to undergo brain surgery soon. I have started to vlog my journey. Thank you for this video.

  • My thyroid is very small (7ml) and I used to take 125 mcg of L-Thyroxine. But with menopause lower estrogen levels I suddenly got severe problems. Not yet solved in 2 years unfortunately. The TSH was suddenly “negative” and I got life-threatening blood pressure problems/headaches. I started reducing the dosage and finally ended stopping the medication. I tolerate 25 mcg. But attemps to increase the dosage cause severe headaches and hypertension. Ignoring it all, increasing the dosage only very high doses of blood pressure medication and combinations help. So for the moment I prefer to stay on 25 mcg adding a tiny dose blood pressure-lowering agents when necessary.
    A few years ago, not taking medication my TSH was 11. So it might be 8 now. I think it’s possible to live like that. I don’t think it causes damage.
    Studies showed sudden heart death in patients having too much T4 (during/after menopause). So it might be reasonable not to force myself to much towards perfect hormone values.

  • So happy I found this video ❤️ I’m not alone…. this journey has been hard for me. I pray for everyone who is going through the same as me.

  • ive been diagnosed for prolactonoma ive been drinking medicine since 2014 but now my doc. suggested to done a surgery but im so scared for this is connected to brain. Is there any way to cure this deceased.. Many thanks hoping for ur reply

  • Oh my God me to a T. The depression diagnosisyes! Finally my legs swelled up so bad i couldn’t put my shoes on. I went in and asked him “is this depression?” I was in early kidney failure. It took four more years for my tumor to be diagnosed. The first MRI missed it but every neuro who has seen it says it never should have been signed off on because the image is so poor. I’m in a pituitary tumor group on Facebook and sadly this is so common.

  • Doctors told me I have the same at age 23… i will be 31 in 2 weeks.
    I have a Prolactinoma microadenome in pituitary… I want to get it removed but I am so scared of the risks ����

  • The thyroid secretes several hormones, collectively called thyroid hormones. The main hormone is thyroxine, also called T4. Thyroid hormones act throughout the body, influencing metabolism, growth and development, and body temperature. During infancy and childhood, adequate thyroid hormone is crucial for brain development.

  • I have this I was diagnosed at 22 AMY has the exact same signs  that I am Going through I live in cincinnati and I first went to mercy then I went to Christ and christ tried to tell me that I have real bad migraines…I knew that wasn’t it because the migraine meds made it worse..I would like to have the surgery because I know that I want to have kids and get rid of these horrible headaches I am just thankfull that I see that it’s common and it is a cure.This video was very helpful to me Thank you Amy for sharing you story after this I LOOOve you tube even more now.

  • He mentioned that ponytail girl was a picture the other guy didn’t want to include but I love how you can tell he also didn’t want to include the rollercoaster pictures. Dude is so serious lol. “I guess our example here is people riding a rollercoaster” XD 11:00

  • Great content…… Actually I have been watching all of your content..

    And valuable stuff has been served by ALILA MEDICAL MEDIA which is appreciable…

    Thanks… Go ahead… I’m with you.. ����

  • i have hyperthyroid & it caused me graves

    been on medicne for 3 months so far.

    one of my eyes started to look less pufy but the left still bad

    only 1 % blood test result ( T4) is less than normal for 2 months so far ( and it still won’t get beter )


  • these non spolasky lectures are so diluted… so hormones are proteins sintetized by cells to comunicate with other cells right? gotta love how they skept this whole fucking thing, im 7 minutes in so yeah they did skip it damn

  • Putting the class clowns together to team teach was probably not a good idea. The other four TAs generally did a good job, but here, the synergy really didn’t work.

  • when you are 17 minutes into the video and the bollywood is so strong you have to literally pause the video to type this comment as the background noise is overtaking the foreground and making it so i can’t take this episode seriously at all though the camera snaps in my left ear are also pretty abnoxious

  • I have been watching this series from the beginning and have enjoyed almost every minute of it…. until now. This episode was horrible. Both of the TAs were more interested in showing everyone how cool and smart they were and did not present the information in a way that helped me learn. Tom McFadden was especially annoying and I had a hard time finishing this lecture. This is unfortunate and I hope that Stanford re-records this lecture so that this whole series retains the same level of quality as the first 11 lectures.

  • There is a really really sick student in the crowd:( She’s coughing in aaaallll the lectures. I can’t concentrate, I wonder how they can keep on focusing on their speech:))) Bring a pillow and cough in it!:))))

  • We know its not natural for us to become anxious, sleepless,numb in many areas, vision changes,concentration,dizziness weakness,menstruation probs,weightgain,metabolism changes,all at once.sadly I return home from doctor hearing that I may have a anxiety disorder that’s it.well I know its something more than that and yes pituitary tumour makes sense though its hard to detect it.

  • I appreciate the energy, but they’re making philic/phobic seem necessarily difficult. These terms were introduced to us in 10th grade high school organic chem… not sure why TAs think this will “make people’s brains hurt” at Stanford….?!

  • So I just want to say at the outset that I’m really enjoying this course, and the MOOCs that some of the best universities in the world are uploading at their, at thier own expense with no real gain for their institutions (well, I think you could argue it does wonders for their credibility and reputation internationally). However, as a british postgrad anatomist/human biologist, I’m stunned at the general lack of knowledge of the cohort at Stanford. Everythign decsribed in the non-Sapolsky lectures is something we had to study, compulsory, at the age of 15-16 in order to take advanced classes in any subject we want at college (which is not university). From hypothalamus, ACh, endocrine, autocrine, paracrine… it was ALL taught in a mandatory set of science examination as part of GCSEs. To be told “don’t worry about this jargon” to undergraduates doing a biology themed course at Stanford not a bad uni at all is quite remarkable. Odd.

  • I liked this presentation a lot, they did it very well. Of course they are males and there probably were a lot of females in the class 😉 So they wanted to show a little bit maybe, or maybe they just did it to make the presentation more dynamic who knows.

  • I don’t understand the hate. Yes, tom was a bit overdoing it, but the metaphors they used really further the understanding of the topic, at least for me.

  • 19:39 Thymus releases several hormones especially during puberty which are important in the maturation and maintenance of our immune system. These are: Thymosin, Thymopoietin, Thymic humoral factor, Thymostimulin, Factor thymic serum.

  • McFadden is a lot easier to understand because his voice emphasizes higher frequencies. So he has a crisp vocal presence and I don’t struggle for  understand what he said. Maybe I just need new speakers.

  • This guy is insufferable. Had to stop watching, impossible as it was to focus on the content of the lesson. Not everybody can be a teacher. When you want to be the star of the course and shining in front of everybody becomes more important than the lesson itself, you get it all wrong. Leave your ego at the door and stop trying so hard to take all the space.

  • ONE thing this lecture overlooks and that is how the communication is restricted or increased.  SALT in the system which creates the environment for electrical conductivity necessary to communicate even the most subtle messages.  Pure trace minerals are a critical part of endocrinology and the metabolic function.  PURE UNPROCESSED SALT is key for metabolic communication.  Salt is also the mule which carries trace minerals and drugs throughout your body and if empty or in the pure form may also be used to remove bio accumulative toxins and drugs from the body and brain.  No one reads the ingredient list on the salt box.  Well you should; you may discover salt that is processed is poison and toxic to your brain and entire metabolic cycle.  A small subject but critical.
