Acute thyroiditis in an 11 year old girl




11 year old Indian girl presented with painful swelling of the anterior neck of 3 week's duration. Ultrasound examination showed a diffusely enlarged thyroid gland bilaterally. The echogenicity is inhomogenous with areas of hyper-echogenicity and increased vascularity. A diagnosis of acute thyroiditis was made and later confirmed with biochemical studies.

I have used porcine thyroid capsules for more than a year and I have had nothing but great results. I have low thyroid (hypothyroidism) and this makes me feel so alert and has helped me lose weight. I also exercise but the pill has helped me decrease weight. I tried a different supplement but ended up going back to porcine thyroid capsules!

After taking porcine thyroid supplements I noticed improvements to my health. I can personally say that after using it for four months i feel like a whole new person. It gave loads of energy, it helped me lose 24 lbs and the best part of it i managed to grow my hair back i have lost 10 years ago.
