Benefits of stem cells
It occurs when the thyroid gland produces more hormones than the body needs. The symptoms are easily identifiable and range from hair loss and sweating to affecting breathing, heart rate, weight, digestion, mood, among others.
Hyperthyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland secretes an excessive amount of thyroxine hormone. It accelerates the body’s metabolism and causes involuntary weight loss, along with rapid or irregular heartbeats. Additionally, symptoms such as nervousness, anxiety, increased sweating, irritability, and trembling hands may be present.
The potential of mesenchymal stem cells to treat thyroid has been confirmed.
Hypothyroidism occurs when the thyroid gland fails to produce a sufficient amount of certain hormones. This leads to fatigue or drowsiness, weight gain, sensitivity to cold, depression, menstrual irregularities, hair loss, brittle nails, and dry skin.
It is possible to use patient-derived induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs) to treat hypothyroidism. It has been demonstrated that thyroid function can be restored using stem cell therapy, even after it is completely destroyed. Stem cells assist thyroid cells in permanently recovering their function.
