Thyroid Disease : Silent thyroiditis – Treatments In Conventional medicine perspective

Thyroid disease is defined as a condition of malfunction of thyroid. Hyperthyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland is over active and produces too much thyroid hormones. Hypothyroidism is a condition in which the thyroid gland is under active and produces very little thyroid hormones. Thyroid cancer is defined as condition in which the cells in the thyroid gland have become cancerous.
Silent thyroiditis
Silent thyroiditis is the inflammation of the thyroid gland. Patients with silent thyroiditis are experience back and forth between hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. The disease classically present with a triphasic course: a brief period of thyrotoxicosis due to release of preformed thyroid hormone that lasts for 1 to 3 months, followed by a more prolonged hypothyroid phase lasting up to 6 months, and eventual return to a euthyroid state. However, the types and degree of thyroid dysfunction are variable in these disorders, and individual patients may present with mild or more severe cases of thyrotoxicosis alone, hypothyroidism alone, or both types of thyroid dysfunction(a).
F. Treatments
F.1. In conventional medicine perspective
Treatment of the disease is to relive the symptoms, as it usually needs no treatment, and most of the patients show complete recovery and return of the thyroid gland to normal after 3 months. Study indicated that SAT and SAT-SRH are transient thyroid disease rarely leading to permanent thyroid disease, although some loss of thyroid reserve may occur. However, LT-SRH is a persistent progressive disease similar to or the same as chronic LT, in which goiter formation and thyroid failure are a natural course(49). Also, in some study showed that thyroid suppression with thyroid hormone may be ineffective in preventing this disease(50).
