JANUARY THYROID DISEASE AWARENESS MONTH

TASI IS SO EXCITED AND FULFILLED THAT JANUARY THYROID DISEASE AWARENESS MONTH ENDED IN A GRAND STYLE .

 THYROID AWARENESS CONTINUES,...... SDG#3 SDG#10

THYROID DISEASE HAS BEEN REPORTED TO BE THE SECOND MOST COMMON ENDOCRINE DISEASE AFTER DIABETES.

ONE OUT OF EVERY 4 WOMEN IS AT RISK OF DEVELOPING THYROID DISEASE. 

The huge role The thyroid gland gland plays in the whole body system demands that this Butterfly shaped gland located at the base of the neck should be given top priority in ensuring that its kept healthy and well taken care of.

Its unfortunate that significant attention has has not been channeled to thyroid health and the management of thyroid Disease by  Governments across Board, International Organisation, Donor Agencies, researchers, and other relevant stakeholders, not only in Africa but globally,though Africa is most hit.

Thyroid gland is the master gland of Metabolism, every cell, tissues,organs, systems in the body is attached to the thyroid gland to function optimally,otherwise any impairment on the thyroid gland results to a total wreck of the entire body system,from the hair to the brain, to the heart, reproductive system, skin, digestive system down to the sole of the feet. The mental effects can not be over emphasised.

I have experienced victims of thyroid disease who have attempted suicide due to the depression, anxiety and state of hopeless due to ignorance that was caused by MISDIAGNOSIS! Imagine the percentage of people who are going about undiagnosed and severely suffering in ignorance what they know nothing about.

For 4 years ,  I  Iruoma battled almost to death in ignorance a disease that totally robbed me of my sense of existence on Earth,  and at moment my hopelessness got to the Climax at the time my system s were saying goodbye,God suddenly made my anticipation to get well a dream come. His grace and mercy saved me. I am still waiting for the day my doctor will tell me that he has seen a case that beat my records in severity and complexity.

Thyroid disease affects females predominantly that males. It is a great threat to female reproductive health which results to maternal mortality.

WHY IS IT THAT THYROID FUNCTION SCREENING SHOULD NOT BE INITIATED BY GOVERNMENTS AND OTHER STAKEHOLDERS TO PROPERLY DIAGNOSE PEOPLE TO ENABLE US ERRADICATE THE SCOURGE OF THYROID DISEASE ANS FORESTALL THE DANGER S AND RISKS ASSOCIATED WITH IT ???

WE ALSO DEMAND FOR NEW BORN SCREENING  TO DETECT CONGENITAL THYROID DISORDERS AND PERIODIC SCREENING TO AVERT ANY EVENTUALITY.

THERE IS SCARCITY OF ENDOCRINOLOGISTS AND THYROID SPECIALISTS IN OUR HOSPITAL, AS WE WORK TO ACHIEVE THE GLOBAL GOALS {SSGs 2030} GOVERNMENTS AND THE RELEVANT STAKEHOLDERS SHOULD INCLUDE THYROID DISEASE AMONG OTHER POPULAR HEALTH CONDITIONS AND FACILITATE FUNDING FOR RESEARCH AND DEVELOPMENT ON MEASURES TO ERRADICATE AND MANAGE THYROID DISORDERS.
