This is a series of notes on Hypothyroidism and general thyroid dysfunction.

Ideas on reversing the symptoms

1 genetic factors determine which thyroid dysfunction is at risk for the person.
2 what are the specific environmental factors that trigger thyroid dysfunction.
3 what are the most likely  environmental factors that have triggered  a change in thyroid function.
4 Quantify those environmental causes?   
5 treatment for the environmental causes and Quantify any and all results.

Environmental Exposures and Autoimmune Thyroid Disease

 

MECHANISMS OF AUTOIMMUNE THYROID DISEASES: FROM GENETICS TO EPIGENETICS

an explanation of which genes are to blame.
which genes are a factor
how each gene effects thyroid dysfunction. 

We found that the transcription factor IRF-1 binds to the Tg promoter only in the presence of the disease-associated variant and that this binding is modulated by changes in histone methylation patterns. IRF-1 is a transcription factor triggered by interferon alpha, a cytokine that is secreted locally during viral infections

– viral infections?
– changes in histone methylation?
