Transparency Market Research ( includes new market research report "Thyroid Gland Disorder Market" to its huge collection of research reports.


Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/30/2014 -- Thyroid gland is located in the lower part of neck and produces and stores hormones that help to regulate blood pressure, heart rate and body temperature. Thyroid hormones are also regulating the essential functions of body cells and maintain functions like metabolism i.e. rate of chemical reaction in the body. Triiodothyronine (T3), thyroxine (T4) and calcitonic are important types of thyroid hormones. Pituitary gland produce thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH) that stimulates the thyroid gland to produce these hormones. The disorder of thyroid gland functions involves abnormal production of thyroid hormones and hence results in condition like hyperthyroidism and hypothyroidism. Hyperthyroidism initiates the excessive production of thyroid hormone. This condition occurs due to variety of disease conditions like graves' disease, toxic adenomas and subacute thyroiditis. In contrast, hypothyroidism is defined as the underproduction of thyroid hormones. Conditions like hashimoto's thyroiditis and exposure to excessive amounts of iodide responsible for hypothyroidism. Blood tests, radioactive iodine uptake tests, thyroid scan thyroid fine needle biopsy and thyroid ultrasound are useful for the diagnosis of thyroid gland disorders. In addition, anti-thyroid medicines, radioiodine, beta-blockers are advised by physicians for the effective treatment of these disorders.
