How can a thyroid gland grow back?

How can a thyroid gland grow back?

Glands grow: If not all of the thyroid was removed, the remnant will likely grow back, especially if the TSH was slightly high or normal (tsh is a stimulus to growth). Surgery usually does not remove every last cell of the thyroid, even if it is called a "total thyroidectomy". See your endocrinologist. ...Read more

Can the thyroid gland grow back after a partial removal?

Can the thyroid gland grow back after a partial removal?

Yes: After partial removal, the remaining thyroid will grow. If this thyroid remnant is healthy, it can easily make enough thyroid hormone to keep your blood levels normal, but on exam it may be enlarged. If the original surgery was for a "nodule", then this enlarging thyroid remnant can create concern/confusion: is it normal physiologic expansion, or another nodule? Check with your endocrinologist. ...Read more

I'm 19, 5'9, and 175 pounds. If I take pituitrophin pmg 6850, for my pituitary glands, will I grow taller since it helps the growth hormones?

I'm 19, 5'9, and 175 pounds. If I take pituitrophin pmg 6850, for my pituitary glands, will I grow taller since it helps the growth hormones?

No: As a 19 year old male, your growth is likely done and your bones growth plates closed. At this age taking growth hormone will bulk muscle and could make bones thicker, but are not going to make them longer, and thus, no increase in height. I urge you to think twice about putting pituitary supplements you describe into your body without someone who knows all their affects guiding you- can be danger. ...Read more

What are different ways to stimulate the pituitary gland or increase growth hormone to grow taller?

What are different ways to stimulate the pituitary gland or increase growth hormone to grow taller?

Depends: If a kid is truly growth hormone deficient by test, artificial hormone can return them to a normal growth rate. Those who are just behind, but growing at a normal rate, could speed things up with hormone injections, but would not grow taller than they would have naturally. If they are growing normally, a balanced diet, rest and exercise permit normal growth. No diet or supplements boost the final. ...Read more

Do Pituitary gland tumours grow bigger fast or does it take long time for it to get bigger my doctor made me wait 6 months nd am still waiting for mri?

Pituitary tumors: These tumors are generally slow growing and rarely are malignant. As such it is not uncommon to them to be observed without treatment for a period of time. Often, an MRI is done 3-6 months after the initial diagnosis, and then every 6-12 months thereafter. It is always appropriate to discuss concerns about observation with a doctor. ...Read more

Different itching symptom about dryeye and primary meibomian glands dysfunction? Can be allergy only attack eyelid where eyelashes grow + eyecorner?

Yes; compresses: As before in a previous post to you, if you are not performing hot compresses, then start. This helps the eyelids and reduces the eyelid irritation. Artificial tears and antihistamine eye drops will aide the ocular surface symptoms. If your symptoms are not improving after several days to a couple of weeks, then a visit to your eye md will help determine if you require more aggressive treatment. ...Read more

2 years ago my mother went into surgery to take out her left thyroid gland. Now the doctor said the right one is starting to grow. Surgery or medicine?

2 years ago my mother went into surgery to take out her left thyroid gland. Now the doctor said the right one is starting to grow. Surgery or medicine?

Half thyroid: If half the thyroid is removed, it is normal for the other half to get bigger to compensate. Also, if the "problem" originally was a nodular thyroid, that problem usually affects both sides, even if the right side looked normal at the time. Your mother needs to see an endocrinologist who does thyroid ultrasound and biopsy. ...Read more

If a person had lymphoma in the pituitary gland causing hypophysitis and partial adrenal insufficiency, could it become stable or shrink when hydrocortisone started and grow if hydrocortisone stopped?

If a person had lymphoma in the pituitary gland causing hypophysitis and partial adrenal insufficiency, could it become stable or shrink when hydrocortisone started and grow if hydrocortisone stopped?

Lymphocytic h-itis?: You don't manage "lymphoma" just with hydrocortisone. If you are perhaps referring to lymphocytic hypophysitis, this is a different matter altogether; this is an autoimmune illness that can wax and wane and for which you need to be very closely followed. The picture you describe is in fact a good match for how lymphocytic hypophysitis might behave on glucocorticoid treatment. ...Read more
