Goiter treatment: Sometimes, you may see people with necks that are swollen, some of which may swell up to the size of a small ball; this is a health condition that is known as Goitre.
Goiter is the inflammation of the thyroid gland, which causes it to increase in size that varies according to the severity of the symptoms. There are various forms of Goitre, including colloid or Endemic Goitre, sporadic or non-toxic Goitre, Toxic Goitre, myxedema Goitre, and congenital Goitre. But all these are primarily grouped into diffuse Goitre and Nodular Goitre. It is more common in people over 50, and a more significant proportion of women are affected than men.
The thyroid is a small gland with two lobes joined together to give it a ‘butterfly’ shape; it lies in the frontal portion of the neck, just underneath Adam’s apple or larynx position. Like other glands found in the body, the thyroid plays a vital function in releasing hormones. It takes the iodine in our food and converts it into thyroid hormones. The only part of the human body that can absorb and utilize iodine, which is found in common salts.
Before the thyroid gland becomes swollen and the occurrence of Goitre becomes apparent, there may be no pains felt in this area, making the disease hard to detect. But some people can experience symptoms such as difficulty breathing, coughing, change in tone of voice, and discomfort in swallowing. In cases where the swellings are small, Goitre can be mistaken for some other throat infection. A further diagnosis that involves hormonal tests, ultrasonography, thyroid scan, and biopsy can help confirm the presence of Goitre.
Goitre can still develop even when the thyroid gland is functioning correctly; in most cases, goiter is caused by the following:
Deficiency of iodine: This is the most common cause of goiter, it occurs when there is an inadequate supply of iodine in the body, and since the thyroid is dependent on the presence of iodine to function, it begins to enlarge in an attempt to absorb any trace of iodine found in the body.
Autoimmune diseases: Certain autoimmune disease causes the thyroid to swell, leading to goiter. They include Grave’s disease, which makes the thyroid produce excessive hormones, and Hashimoto’s, which produces reduced hormones.
Thyroiditis: This disease causes the inflammation of the thyroid; it is usually accompanied by pains and a swollen neck, resulting in goiter.
Thyroid cancer: In rare cases, goiter can be caused by cancer in the thyroid, which makes it swollen. Before the thyroid gland becomes swollen and goiter becomes apparent, there may be no pain in this area, making the disease hard to detect. But some people can experience symptoms such as difficulty breathing, coughing, change in tone of voice, and discomfort in swallowing. In cases where the swellings are small, goiter can be mistaken for some other throat infection. A further diagnosis that involves hormonal tests, ultrasonography, thyroid scan, and biopsy can help confirm the presence of goiter.
Depending on the size and cause of goiter, it can be effectively treated using the following methods:
Iodine therapy: Goitre treatment can be done by replenishing the depleted iodine levels in the body. It is done by consuming iodine-rich foods such as seafood, eggs, and shrimps and using iodine salts for preparing meals.
Medications: Based on the cause, goiter treatment may be by prescription medications which suppress the effects of autoimmune diseases, supply iodine, and regulate hormonal levels in the body
Herbal remedy: Many herbs can be used effectively for goiter treatment. They include dandelion, ginger, and kelps. They will help normalize iodine levels and restore the normal function of the thyroid gland.
