Posted February 15, 2018 09:01:00 A thyroid doctor who has spent most of her professional career studying the disease has made a dramatic discovery that could lead to a new way of diagnosing thyroid problems.
In the new paper published in the journal BMJ Open, Dr. Julie Haggarty from the University of Cambridge in the UK described her discovery that she was able to diagnose some people who had the disorder with only a simple, biopsy.
Dr Haggart said she had no idea what her findings meant for the general public, but was thrilled to see a number of patients, and was hoping to be able to work on new therapies for the disorder.
“My main goal is to provide information to help people to be more comfortable with diagnosing their thyroid problems,” she said.
Dr. Haggarts first thought she was seeing a rare form of the disease called thyroid carcinoma when she noticed some of her patients with thyroid problems in the lab.
“They had a lot of nodules and I had a bunch of thyroid cells that were actually abnormal, and that seemed really odd,” she recalled.
It turned out that the problem was not a rare one. “
I was surprised and then I realised that there were a lot more people with this disease than I thought.”
It turned out that the problem was not a rare one.
Dr Sarah McNeill, a radiologist from the Queen Mary University of London, who was not involved in the study, said it is possible to have a thyroid cancer that does not appear as a nodule.
“We think this is the first time that someone has been able to detect this rare type of cancer in a healthy population,” she told CBC News.
“It is something that we have never really seen before.”
The findings are significant because they suggest that people may have a rare and dangerous condition called hyperthyroidism.
Dr McNeill and Dr Hoggart said the study also found that it is not just a rare type but that hyperthyrosis can be an inherited condition.
“There is some evidence to suggest that hyperthroidism may be more prevalent in people of European ancestry than in people from other parts of the world,” she explained.
“This means that the incidence of hyperthyroids may be higher in populations from Western Europe.”
The research also raises the possibility that people who have had the disease and who do not have hyperthyrotic symptoms may be at greater risk of developing other conditions, including obesity, diabetes and dementia.
“The fact that it may be common in people who don’t have hyperthroids to begin with means that it might be important to take into account these individuals in future research,” Dr McNeil said.
“These findings also have implications for the development of treatments for hyperthyroglobacy, as it could potentially have consequences for the health of people who may have hypertriacylglycerol levels that may be increased as a result of the disorder.”
The study, led by Dr Hargarty, Dr McNeils and a colleague, has not been peer-reviewed and does not have a publication date yet.
The findings could lead doctors to better understand the thyroid disease, which is caused by the abnormal production of thyroid hormone in the thyroid gland.
This hormone causes the body to produce the hormone thyroidic steroids.
The symptoms include weight loss and a feeling of sluggishness or sluggishness and sometimes depression.
About 15 per cent of Canadians have hyper-thyroid symptoms.
A similar condition, called hypertriathymic thyroiditis, affects people with normal thyroid function but who also have a family history of the condition.
The disorder is also called hypothyroidism and is a genetic disorder that occurs in about one in 1,000 to one in 10,000 people.
The Canadian thyroid team hopes to continue the research and develop new treatments to prevent hyperthyronism.
