 For this systematic review, we focus on the thyroid levels in patients with DCM. Thyroid hormone has major effects on the heart. For example in physiologic processes like metabolism, growth and development. Even small changes in thyroid hormone level can affect the heart and cardiovascular system. 
Erika Oregon & Christian Torres Mr. Bagdasarian 28 November 2015 Biology 121 Research Paper Goiter The disease we were assigned is the condition that results in a Goiter. A goiter can be defined as the swelling of the neck caused by an enlargement of the Thyroid gland. This condition is quite overt as the swelling is obviously visible at the base of the neck. Goiter may occur in different types, therefore having different causes to their development. The Thyroid gland utilizes iodide by using it in conjunction to produce Thyroxin.
The actual claim was difficult for me to distinguish, First, I considered the objective to contain the claim. Accord to associate professor at pediatric center for diabetes and obesity Dr. Skelton MD, et al, states “To determine the extent to which the 2007 definitions for sever obesity” …”and morbid obesity” …” effects different groups of American children and adolescents and has increased over time.” Or this statement inside the article. “A variety of studies have shown increases in the rates of obesity among children and adolescents.” (322). I going to choose the shorter statement, because it gets to the point.

It can cause poor ability to take on the cold, a feeling of tiredness, depression, weight gain, and constipation. Thyroid hormone secretion decreases with age. Treatment with thyroid-releasing hormone is less effective in younger patients, while treatment with thyroid hormone is more effective in younger. Decreased responsiveness to injected releasing hormone may indicate a loss of hormone receptors in the anterior pituitary. Increased responsiveness to injected thyroid hormone may indicate up-regulation of hormone receptors, or it may indicate decreased metabolism of the circulating
• Results of visual, auditory, and brainstem evoked potential studies are often abnormal. • Electromyography (EMG) findings may be very abnormal in people with advanced stages of the disease.

Labs Upon admission to the hospital labs were taken to determine my patient’s chemistry, her hematology, and her urinalysis. • Chemistry • Sodium (NA)- 140mmol/L (range 135-145 mmol/L) • Potassium (K)-3.8mmol/L (range

About one in fifteen women develop breast cancer (Tarrier, Living with Breast Cancer and Mastectomy). Breast cancer and Mastectomy produce two great sources of psychological stress, one to do with the individual existence and survival, and the other to do with the femininity and self-image (Tarrier, Living with Breast Cancer and Mastectomy). The most common reaction to Mastectomy is anxiety and depression (Tarrier, Living with Breast Cancer and Mastectomy). The most common reason for Mastectomy is breast cancer (A.D.A.M Encyclopedia) Women who have a very high risk of developing breast cancer may choose to have a preventive (or prophylactic) mastectomy to reduce the risk of breast cancer (A.D.A.M
