All about the thyroid gland in men diseases, symptoms and treatment

AHealthyMan specialists claim that thyroid hormones in a man determine character. Practice has proved that knowing the content of iodothyronines in the blood, it is possible to predict a person’s behavior in a given situation. Let’s try to figure out what significance the normal operation of this mysterious organ of internal secretion has for the modern macho, how it affects potency, what threatens a representative of the strong half of humanity with hypo – and hyperfunction of the thyroid gland.

The main functions of the thyroid gland

The endocrine system functions as a single mechanism. The intake of biologically active substances into the blood is regulated by the pituitary gland. The thyroid gland produces two types of hormones in both men and women: iodized – thyroxine, triiodothyronine and thyrocalcitonin (calcitonin).

Iodothyronines in the body:

  • affect tissue growth and differentiation;
  • increase enzyme activity;
  • stimulate basal metabolism;
  • enhance oxidative processes;
  • increase oxygen uptake and glucose consumption;
  • reduce glycogen stores;
  • accelerate the oxidation of fats;
  • change the autonomic regulation of internal organs;
  • increase the excitability of the nervous system;
  • reduce the ability of blood to coagulate;

Calcitonin is an antagonist of parathyroid hormone. Its level in the blood increases in pregnant women, as well as in people after fractures at the time of intensive bone fusion. Under the influence of thyrocalcitonin in the body:

  • the level of calcium and phosphorus in the blood decreases;
  • their excretion in the urine increases;
  • bone demineralization is inhibited;
  • gastrin production is stimulated.

Until the middle of the last century, there was no reliable scientific data on the effect of thyroid hormones on potency. Currently, it has been proven that iodothyronines:

  • regulate testicular maturation in the prepubescent period;
  • stimulate spermatogenesis and testosterone production;
  • have an effect on sexual desire.

With an excess of estrogens, there is an increase in the sensitivity of the pituitary gland to thyroid-stimulating hormone. Hyper- and hypofunction of the thyroid gland leads to morphological and functional disorders of the male reproductive system.

Signs of thyroid dysfunction

Thyroid diseases occur with excessive, reduced, normal hormone production. The intensity of synthesis does not always directly depend on the pathology of the gland itself. Such disorders are called secondary by endocrinologists. They can be caused by pituitary diseases, iodine deficiency, diabetes, obesity.

Signs of hypothyroidism

Hypothyroidism is characterized by deterioration of the general condition – lethargy, chilliness, apathy, drowsiness. The lack of iodothyronines is accompanied by the following disorders:

  • Cardiovascular changes – decrease in blood pressure, bradycardia.
  • Symptoms of digestive deterioration are a tendency to constipation, lack of appetite.
  • Dryness of the skin and mucous membranes.
  • Increase in body weight.
  • On the part of the excretory system, there is a decrease in the frequency of urination with a simultaneous tendency to edema.

The lack of thyroid hormones in men is sometimes associated with hypogonadism – a lack or absence of endogenous testosterone.

Signs of hyperthyroidism

Excess of iodothyronines entails weight loss, tachycardia, increased blood pressure, tremor of the extremities, ecophthalmos, diarrhea, osteoporosis. Patients with hyperthyroidism are irritable, complain of insomnia, inability to concentrate. Symptoms worsen in the hot season. The increased content of thyroid hormones in men leads to the development of gynecomastia – hypertrophy of breast tissue.

Prevention of diseases

Prevention of hormonal disorders of the thyroid gland includes the entire list of rules of a healthy lifestyle, namely, the fight against physical inactivity, rational nutrition, getting rid of excess weight and bad habits, compliance with personal hygiene rules, strengthening immunity. An important role is played by the ability to cope with stress through self-training, yoga, and all kinds of hobbies.

In addition to general recommendations, it is important to remember about the specific risks of failure of the normal functioning of the thyroid gland:

  • Prolonged exposure to scorching sunlight can serve as a trigger for the emergence of diseases of this organ, so you need to sunbathe so as not to get an excess of ultraviolet light.
  • Iodine deficiency in food is a risk factor for goiter. Residents of certain regions need to eat foods rich in this trace element. Iodized salt should be stored in sealed packages, and e should be added to dishes at the final stage of culinary processing.
  • Certain medications are able to change the normal content of the thyroid-stimulating hormone of the pituitary gland in the blood, which can lead to a violation of the thyroid gland. Therefore, you do not need to self-medicate.

For people suffering from chronic diseases, timely medical examinations and examinations will help to avoid not only complications of the underlying pathology, but also prevent the occurrence of disorders of the endocrine system, including thyroid diseases.

Hormonal disorders

The level of androgens changes throughout life. The norm is considered to be a decrease in testosterone production in men over thirty years of age. The secretion of sex hormones is affected by heredity, the presence of chronic pathology, physical activity, stress.

Hormonal imbalance is accompanied by the following symptoms:

  • violation of reproductive function;
  • decrease in working capacity;
  • osteoporosis;
  • change in body weight;
  • cardiovascular manifestations;
  • decrease glucose tolerance;
  • dermatological manifestations.

In men of respectable and respectable age, the lack of androgens is most often due to the natural extinction of testicular function. Young people have a violation of the pituitary and thyroid gland, bad habits, infections, injuries, exposure to toxins, chronic diseases.

The maximum content of thyroid-stimulating hormone, therefore, the lowest T3 and T4, is observed from two to four in the morning, as well as from six to eight in the morning. From seventeen to nineteen days on the contrary: the highest concentrations of iodothyronines in the blood, the minimum – TSH. If a person is forced to sacrifice a night’s sleep, this mechanism fails, which can also have a negative indirect effect on testosterone secretion.

How do I get tested?

An analysis for thyroid hormones will confirm or exclude a change in the function of this organ. Modern laboratories offer to determine the content in the blood:

  • thyroid-stimulating (TSH) ;
  • thyroxine (T4);
  • triiodothyronine (T3).

TSH is produced by the pituitary gland. T3, T4 – thyroid gland. In most cases, there is no need to specify the blood content of all three biologically active substances. This is due to the fact that their products are interconnected. The level of T3 and T4 is inversely proportional to the concentration of TSH.

In order to obtain a reliable result, it is necessary to adhere to the following simple rules:

  • To donate blood from a vein from eight to eleven o’clock in the morning.
  • Refrain from eating 6 hours before the examination.
  • Do not smoke, do not drink alcoholic beverages, do not overdo it in the gym for at least three days before the analysis.
  • Refuse to take medications. When it is impossible – notify your attending physician.

If the patient underwent examinations using contrast agents, it should be remembered that this can also distort the reliability of the result. Therefore, it is important to coordinate the procedure for conducting diagnostic procedures with a specialist.

It is usually enough to pass an analysis for TSH and T4 to detect thyroid dysfunction, but sometimes clarifying the diagnosis requires additional studies – the determination of specific antibody proteins. There are antibodies to thyroperoxidase, to thyroglobulin, to the TSH receptor. The level of calcitonin in the blood is considered a marker of thyroid cancer. The volume of tests is determined by the endocrinologist.

Norms

The norms of thyroid hormones themselves T3, T4, calcitonin in both men and the weaker sex do not differ. The figures may vary depending on the type of apparatus on which the research is carried out, the type of reagents used. Laboratories indicate on the results form the optimal concentration of each substance. But international medical protocols have approved “reference” indicators, which should be guided by.

The norms of thyroid hormones are presented in the table:

You should not decipher the results of the tests yourself. The endocrinologist does not make a conclusion about the function of the thyroid gland based on the content of one biologically active substance. The conclusion on the state of the hormonal background for a full-fledged final diagnosis is carried out on the basis of a comprehensive assessment of several indicators.

Endemic goiter

A disease characterized by thyroid hyperplasia due to iodine deficiency. The deficiency can be absolute (low amount of iodine in food and water) and relative (decreased absorption of this chemical element in the intestine, a genetic defect in the synthesis of iodothyronines, a violation of iodine uptake by the thyroid gland, as a result of taking medications or toxic substances).

What is personnel training in the crisis period

The process of personnel training is one of the key and most difficult stages in the work of any company.

During the existence of the company, as a rule, a number of critical situations occur. Crisis situations can appear in any form: it can be sudden staff reduction, inappropriate behavior or incompetence of personnel, dismissal of the head who does not cope with the activities of the organization and many others. In any company at such a moment, there can be negative consequences, consequences that can be negative not only for the company itself, but also for its employees.

Dig this

The process of business development and entering a new market, creating a new product, launching a new product and entering new markets can be accompanied by problems in human relations. The guilty employee can simply leave or simply not come to work, the quality of services can decrease, it is not always clear what is the cause – the human factor or production problems.

It should not be forgotten that the employees of the company are key resources, which are necessary for the successful functioning of the firm. They are called to perform work that requires high qualifications, responsibility, diligence and good physical fitness. Therefore, the effectiveness of the company largely depends on the behavior of its employees and their attitude towards work.

As practice shows, the problems of personnel during difficult periods are also an opportunity to change the process of work of the company, taking into account not only its financial, but first of all internal factors. The most difficult period is when the enterprise faces the problem of ineffective management, when the work of the company depends on the person who makes decisions and mistakes, probably not only his own, but also someone else’s. Such situations often arise in the context of market changes and economic changes.

The company, as part of the management system, like any organism, needs the support that the staff provides. If they are not properly prepared for a crisis period, they can fall ill or just be on sick leave, which can have a negative impact on the company. If, on the other hand, employees are properly trained, they will be able to react quickly to the changing situation and take the necessary steps to save the company. It is important to understand that personnel training is an integral part of any management process and, despite the negative aspects, training and development of employees during crisis is one of the most effective ways of support and development during reorganization and restructuring of the company, when employees get used to new conditions with great difficulty, when many companies adjust personnel policy during economic reforms and change of economic business model.

basics of self-study

2022-07-02T08:51:43-05:00Uncategorized|0 Comments

Self-Study.” I won’t say that I stayed “nobody’s,” I liked the process itself. There are some people who have no room for creativity. Of course, being a creator of oneself is a very interesting thing!

By the way, we live in an age of globalization and virtualization of everything and everyone. That is why, personally, globalization reminds me a lot of a battering ram, with which they try to make a breach in the world system.

When the first information about me appeared on the Internet, I was quite skeptical. The answer came right away. In the mail. They turned out to be very persistent. I had to go through all the mail. The letters had no references, but essentially answered the questions I had posed. They amazed me with their deep and, I would even say, timely knowledge of my personality, their accuracy and specificity, and most importantly, their literacy.

That site

Physics at School magazine publishes the magazine “Workshop of Wonders.” Here is one example of a brilliant analysis of my work.

In this case, a word to the expert psychologist at Wonder Workshop, who responded immediately and immediately replied, “Where do you get the energy to do all this? You’re just energized.” That really touched me, because this man knows so much more than I do, yet he writes about me as if he knows everything.

It turns out that, after all, knowledge does not give a person strength. Only love and faith do.

I am very glad that there are such famous and talented people among us who can see.

It is valuable to me that they like what I do. I thank God and fate for that.

An interesting article about my work appeared in My Abode magazine.

You can read about what axioms, axiomatic truths, are in my article “The World of Ideas – A World of Laws and Facts” where you can see some of the mechanisms on which these truths are built, and, of course, see how they work.

There is a link to this article in the journal.

Everyone has knowledge that is passed down to them. History has very accurately pointed out that everything a person touches is connected to him.

The ancient sages said that man can only be reached by the heart, and that the way to wealth and happiness is only through the heart.
