The thyroid gland is a small endocrine gland located at the base of the neck. It produces thyroid hormone, which controls the processes that allow the body to transform food into energy and to rebuild cells. In a person with hyperthyroidism, the body produces too much thyroid hormone. The symptoms of hyperthyroidism are caused by high levels of thyroid hormone. These symptoms can include: - nervousness - palpitations - tremors - sweating - increased activity in the intestinal tract - changes in menstruation - weight loss Some people find it more difficult to tolerate heat. Some feel anxious or restless. Changes in fingernails and hair may be noticed. The heart may beat irregularly, or even become enlarged. There is no known way to prevent hyperthyroidism. The main treatment of hyperthyroidism is to reduce the production of thyroid hormone. This can be accomplished with drugs, such as: - propylthiouracil - methimazole (i.e., Tapazole) - potassium iodide (i.e., Iosat, SSKI, Thryo-Block, ThyroSafe, ThyroShield) Medications called beta-blockers, such as atenolol (i.e., Tenormin) or metoprolol (i.e., Lopressor, Toprol), can also used to block the effects of thyroid on tissues. Some people are treated by altering or destroying the thyroid gland using radioactive iodine (RAI). Radioactive iodine is taken up by the thyroid gland and destroys the excessive thyroid tissue. This treatment is commonly used in Graves' disease, but is not helpful in people with thyroiditis. The only reason for surgery to treat hyperthyroidism is if the person has a tumor that secretes thyroid hormone.

My wife was about 30 when most of her thyroid gland was removed. It help beyond belief. She has had some weight issues, but overall it made her life much better. She is nearly 60 now. LOL Don't say I told her age. Answered by Jackeline Mcclamroch 1 year ago.


How many milligrams of potassium iodide would a child need to take during a nuclear terrorist attack?
30 lb child Asked by Dixie Emenaha 1 year ago.

If you really want that sort of info: Radiation protection Potassium iodide was also FDA approved in 1982 to protect the thyroid from radioactive iodine. In the event of an accident or attack at a nuclear power plant, or fallout from a nuclear bomb, several volatile fission product radionuclides may be released. 131I is a common fission by-product and is particularly dangerous as the body concentrates it only in the thyroid gland which may lead to thyroid cancer. By saturating the body with a source of stable iodine prior to exposure, any radioactive 131I inhaled or ingested becomes the excess in the blood system and is excreted through the kidneys. Potassium iodide cannot protect against any other causes of radiation poisoning, however, nor can it provide any degree of protection against a dirty bomb unless the bomb happens to contain a significant amount of radioactive iodine. In case of a nuclear emergency, iodine used for the cleaning of wounds should not be ingested, as it is poisonous. Only 3 brands of potassium iodide have been tested and approved for use by the FDA as a thyroid blocking agent during exposure to radioactive iodine (Iosat, ThyroShield and Thyro-safe) and hence potassium iodate is not approved in the U.S. for this purpose. Recommended Dosage for Radiological Emergencies involving radioactive iodine[7] Age KI in mg Over 12 years old 130 3 - 12 years old 65 1 - 36 months old 32 < 1 month old 16 What dosages of potassium iodide (KI) should be taken for specific exposure levels? Exposures greater than 5 cGy: Birth through 1 mo. - 16 mg. 1 mo. through 3 yrs. - 32 mg. 3 yrs through 18 yrs. - 65 mg. (Adolescents>150 pounds should take adult dose.) Exposures greater than 10 cGy: 18 yrs through 40 yrs. - 130 mg Exposures greater than 500 cGy: Adults over 40 yrs - 130 mg.

Actually I was sleeping in when the attacks occurred. i just moved into a new apartment building a few days before the 9/11 attacks. I turned on the TV to watch the news and at first I thought it was a movie or something, but then I began to realize it was the real thing. It was a very sad day.
