Thyroid disorders-Goitre-Hyperthyroidism-Hypothyroidism

(Simple Goitre and Exophthalmia Goitre.)

Goitre is an enlargement of the thyroid gland. The swelling of the thyroid gland at the back of the neck is referred to as Goitre. Women are more vulnerable to Goitre as compared to men

Goitre can be caused by a range of factors, including:

  • Diminished power of concentration.
  • Emotional upsets
  • Depression
  • Irritability
  • Swelling of the thyroid gland.

- Insufficient iodine in the diet.
- High consumption of certain foods that neutralise iodine, such as cabbage, broccoli and cauliflower. Other foods, like soy, may also induce goitres.
- Certain drugs, such as lithium and phenylbutazone.
- Thyroid cancer.
- Nodules growing on the thyroid gland.
- Hyperthyroidism (overactive thyroid gland).
- Hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid gland).

Causes of Goitre

The main cause of Goitre is the deficiency of iodine in the diet. Organic iodine is used by the thyroid gland in its secretion. A diet deficient in organic iodine leads to this disease, especially under physical and emotional disturbances. The people mainly affected by Goitre are those who habitually live on denatured foods and nut and those who eat mainly raw or uncooked food.


Hyperthyroidism means the thyroid gland is overactive. A common cause is Graves' disease, in which the immune system produces antibodies that act like TSH and stimulate the thyroid gland uncontrollably. The gland responds by producing an excessive amount of hormones. The goitre is caused by this massive over stimulation. Some of the symptoms of hyperthyroidism include a racing and irregular heart, restlessness, unexplained weight loss, heat intolerance and diarrhoea.


Hypothyroidism means the thyroid gland is under active. The pituitary gland keeps sending its chemical messages, instructing the thyroid to produce its hormones. The thyroid gland enlarges as it attempts to comply. Apart from iodine deficiency, other causes of hypothyroidism include Hashimoto's disease (which, like Graves' disease, is an autoimmune disease), treatment for hyperthyroidism, and dysfunction of the pituitary gland. Some of the symptoms of hypothyroidism include low energy, depression, cold intolerance and constipation.
