The thyroid gland is about 2-inches long and lies in front of your throat below the prominence of thyroid cartilage sometimes called the Adam's apple. The thyroid has two sides called lobes that lie on either side of your windpipe, and is usually connected by a strip of thyroid tissue known as an isthmus. Some people do not have an isthmus, and instead have two separate thyroid lobes.
▫️
How the Thyroid Gland Works❓
The thyroid is part of the endocrine system, which is made up of glands that produce, store, and release hormones into the bloodstream so the hormones can reach the body's cells. The thyroid gland uses iodine from the foods you eat to make two main hormones:

1️⃣Triiodothyronine (T3)
2️⃣Thyroxine (T4)
It is important that T3 and T4 levels are neither too high nor too low. Two glands in the brain—the hypothalamus and the pituitary communicate to maintain T3 and T4 balance.
▫️
The hypothalamus produces TSH Releasing Hormone (TRH) that signals the pituitary to tell the thyroid gland to produce more or less of T3 and T4 by either increasing or decreasing the release of a hormone called thyroid stimulating hormone (TSH).
▪️
When T3 and T4 levels are low in the blood, the pituitary gland releases more TSH to tell the thyroid gland to produce more thyroid hormones.
If T3 and T4 levels are high, the pituitary gland releases less TSH to the thyroid gland to slow production of these hormones.

My attempt of trying to enjoy the summer all while taking 3 science courses in 2 months. It’s all worth it in the end!
Isn’t the view perfect 📖😁...

Reflecting on someone messaging me about what medical school is like as I enter fourth year. We often don’t talk about student wellness enough. Likewise, we often don’t speak about the stress and sacrifice medical students make throughout this journey. 4 years of high school 4 years college 4 years medical school and for me 4 years of residency. If anyone tells you medical school was easy they are lying and should have just graduated kindergarten and became a doctor. Medical school is best described by drinking from a fire hose while everything around you is on fire and oh yeah, your on fire. Overtime the fire burns out but then is reignited. It doesn’t stop, residency comes and life obligations outside of medicine continue to happen. We all have stuff outside of medicine things are not all roses at every moment. Medicine and training should be tough for a very good reason. We often beat ourselves up over small stuff but we keep pushing we forget and try again. We grow to be mentally tough. I learned the most on my hardest rotations. Your duty is to others and the underlying sacrifice is altruistic. No one would ask for this much debt time sacrifice and selflessness without the inner message and goal for helping others. In the end, you can explain what medical school is and heck I tired to understand it long before I entered through my fiancé who is a physician and other doctors saying not to pursue it countless times. However you can’t really describe it till your neck deep. I would always choose medicine again. Overtime you learn to balance life and it’s daily hassles but also use help from those you love 💕. In the end, if it’s what you love it makes sense and you’ll never work a day in your life. Now back to studying. __._____________________________________________________#foodforthought #medicine #medicalstudent #wellness #studentwellness #medstudentlife #studying #physician #healthcare #meditation

#realtalk Back from the grave & I honestly don’t know if I’m ready to be back on social media full force yet.

Truth be told, I’ve been struggling with myself ALOT recently. I’ve been losing bits + pieces of who I am or who I think I am for a while now. I’ve been entirely too consumed with my work that I’ve literally lost essence of having fun (in & our of work + school), being playful + child-like & not taking life too seriously. I’ve been feeling... impatient, annoyed & uninspired.
__
However, today, I’m feeling SO good about the trajectory of being back in alignment. I want to allow myself the gift of doing what I love without any guilt. Going to two festivals this month is a good start. This is me - bad, good & everything in between. #human

The first bone marrow transplant was performed in 1957. But it was 30 years before the associated immunity-suppressing drugs emerged and the survival rate of bone marrow transplant recipients began to exceed even 1%. .

DIABETES MELLITUS TIPO II
.
💡Es una enfermedad crónica con una elevada incidencia y prevalencia, que cada año aumenta exponencialmente 📈 Es tan frecuente que poco a poco ha representado una de las principales causas de morbimortalidad😰 en el mundo debido a sus complicaciones cardiovasculares, micro y macrovasculares 🌍
.
💡Este tipo de Diabetes, es causada por un problema en cómo el cuerpo utiliza la insulina, que es necesaria para mover la glucosa de la sangre hacia las células para ser usada como fuente de energía 🔋
.
🤔Cuando se padece de la enfermedad, la células Beta del páncreas no producen la suficiente insulina y tanto los adipocitos, hepatocitos y miocitos no responden a esta debido a que se ha creado una resistencia⚔️ evitando así que la glucosa se mueva de la sangre hacia el espacio intracelular, aumentando los valores en sangre lo que explica la fisiopatología de la enfermedad 🤓
.
❗️Por lo general, la diabetes tipo 2 se desarrolla lentamente con el tiempo 🕒 uno de los factores que podrían acelerar el progreso de la enfermedad es el sobrepeso, debido a que las células grasas le dificultan al cuerpo el uso correcto de la insulina 🚫
.
🚧Entre los principales factores de riesgo tenemos:
•Factor genético👪
•Tabaquismo🚬
•Alcoholismo🍻
•Tener una vida sedentaria🤳🏼
•Sobrepeso🚼
•Niveles elevados de colesterol🍔
.
👩🏽‍⚕️Los principales signos y síntomas son:
•Polidipsia💧
•Poliuria💦
•Polifagia😋
•Pérdida de peso🚶🏽‍♂️
•Debilidad👎🏻
•Fatiga😪
•Infecciones frecuentes😷
.
👨🏻‍⚕️Entre las condiciones asociadas a la enfermedad:
•Hipertensión⬆️
•Hiperlipidemia⬆️
•Impotencia☹️
•Infertilidad😔
•Retinopatía👀
•Enfermedad cerebrovascular 🧠
.
🚨Criterios para el diagnóstico:
•Síntomas (PPP) + glucemia al azar > 200mg/dL😨
•Glucemia en ayunas >126mg/dL👎🏻
•Test de tolerancia oral a la glucosa >200mg/dL luego de 2h de ingerir 75g de glucosa 🕜
.
⚠️Si tienes diabetes, recuerda:
✅Hacer ejercicio aeróbico
✅Comer saludable
✅Olvidar malos hábitos
.
Un hombre que comparte sus conocimientos se vuelve un sabio. ¿Quién planeas ser?🤓

Our medical school offered to take our ERAS application photos today, this is the photo that will go out to every pediatric residency I apply to, no pressure or anything 😅 I have no clue how mine turned out, but totally wishing it was allowed to submit selfies for our residency applications 🤳🏽😏👩🏽‍⚕️ #medstudentlife #medschoolproblems #studentdoctor #callmedoctor #pediatrics

Día Nacional del Donante de Órganos y Tejidos. 🧠✨
[Dona Órganos, Dona Vida]

La donación de órganos y tejidos es el acto por el cual una persona de manera generosa, voluntaria y altruista manifiesta en vida la voluntad de ceder sus órganos y/o tejidos a otro ser humano que lo necesita para seguir viviendo.
Todas las personas podemos manifestar nuestra voluntad de ser donantes sin embargo, se deben cumplir ciertos requisitos específicos y especiales para convertirse en donantes de órganos y o tejidos. Es de resaltar que hay mayores probabilidades de necesitar un trasplante que de convertirse en donante de órganos y/o tejidos.

En el Perú actualmente unos 700 pacientes conforma la lista de espera, estimándose que aproximadamente 9 mil personas necesitan un trasplante.
TRASPLANTE DE ÓRGANOS Y/O TEJIDOS
El trasplante de órganos y/o tejidos, es un procedimiento quirúrgico para implantar un órgano o tejido sano a un paciente para sustituir su órgano o tejido enfermo que no funciona. Es indispensable para mejorar su calidad de vida y en muchos casos hasta vital. 👁🤝 Solo el 14% de los ciudadanos ha expresado su voluntad de ser donante a través de su Documento Nacional de Identidad (DNI).
Más de 90 mil personas han firmado el Acta de Consentimiento para la Donación Voluntaria de Órganos y Tejidos.

La Organización Nacional de Donación y Trasplantes (ONDT), depende del Despacho Viceministerial de Prestaciones y Aseguramiento de Salud del Ministerio de Salud. Es el ente responsable de las acciones de rectoría, promoción, coordinación, supervisión y control de los aspectos relacionados a la donación y trasplante de órganos y tejidos en el territorio nacional; agrupando a EsSalud; Instituto de Trasplantes de Órganos y Tejidos de las FFAA y PNP (ITOT); Asociación de Clínicas Particulares del Perú (ACP) y Misa.
