Lethbridge Herald, The (Newspaper) - July 16, 1974, Lethbridge, Alberta nc Lawrence Lamb M.D. Dear Dr. Lamb I have a problem with low thyroid and hope you can answer a few of my questions Is a low thyroid the same as a thyroid disease7 I have taken one Synthroid 0.1 mg tablet daily for more than three years. The doctor took me off the medication for eight weeks more than a year ago By the end of this time my arms hurt a lot and I was gaining weight which disappeared as soon as I was put back on medication. What causes this weight Will a thyroid deficiency turn into heart trouble if one has it for a long or what problems can it cause as one grows older9 Right now my thyroid is about yet I am very short of energy and cannot hurry when I do anything A medical exam came up with nothing else wrong Is this normal for a person with thyroid or should I have more examinations9 Dear Reader Anything that represents an impairment of the normal function of the body or any part of the body is a disease Low thyroid called disease is classified as a metabolic disease It is correctly diagnosed whenever your thyroid gland is not producing enough thyroid hormone There are a lot of people on thyroid medicines who don't need them When you give a normal person thyroid medicine his own gland quits producing so much so the total available will end up being about right. This is great because it means that a lot of people won't be poisoned Fun with figures By J. A. H. HUNTER Even a professional athlete should be able to do this Each distinct letter in the very simple addition stands for a particular but different digit What's that JOG to you'' GO ON GO JOG Yesterday's Bob is 66 Judy 31. Mr Hunter answers all letters- ideas welcomed. with too much thyroid. when you take a normal person off thyroid it may take some time tor the normal thyroid to resume its full function. Meanwhile the person has symptoms of a low thyroid I don't know whether that is true in your case or not. You can't tell without seeing all the various and even then it is sometimes impossible without waiting to find out how the gland will function That is probably why your doctor had you off for a fuii eight weeks. Weight gain from low thyroid is a direct result of eating more calories than your body uses. The is the body just isn't using a normal amount of calories All the energy system is slowed down. Theoretically you could avoid weight gain by not eating so many but it would be. a real effort and would not correct the basic problem it is better to correct the low thyroid problem and eat normally Because people with low thyroid conditions tend to have high levels of fatty- cholesterol they also tend to develop deposits in the arteries and heart disease. This will not if you simply replace the thyroid you need with medicine Even when the thyroid function is very a person may not show the heart because they use so little energy that the heart doesn't have to work very much and doesn't have any trouble meeting the body's needs There are many causes of fatigue Low thyroid is only one and is seldom the real cause Most fatigue problems are related to life situations But. you have tc be sure there isn't something such as anemia I would guess that your doctor's examination of your thyroid function has been adequate to find anything serious that needs correction other than a review of your life situations that may be causing this response.

The oldest player was Joe Silver of a grizzled veteran of 33. Also for the first the winning team included two and David Crossley of San Cal. the younger became declarer at a spade slam on this hand after a cue-bidding sequence. Once North raised South became interested in a slam. When North jumped to four spades over South's diamond a grand slam became a possibility. a careful cue-bidding sequence elicited the information that the long of diamonds was so South settled for a small slam. West led the queen of and it was by no means obvious how to go about making twelve tricks. It seemed that a loser in each minor suit was inescapable. the high trumps in dummy alerted South to the possibility of a dummy rever- sal. Declarer won the ace of crossed to dummy with the king of hearts and ruffed a heart. Dummy was reentered with the jack of trumps and declarer ruffed another heart. The king of spades was overtaken with the and when both opponents the contract was home and dry. The last trump was declarer discarding a diamond from his and the nine of clubs was led and run to West's jack. No matter what was returned or how the remainder of the cards were declarer could make the rest. He could win a diamond with the ace and cash his two high discarding dummy's diamond loser.

When you know about them and the mini realm in which they you understand why this is so For one a bacterium strain is subject to change without notice. If we counted them all tomorrow the number would be different. In the world of there are a few counting games that boggle the mind When counting separate we run out of though most of them have been sorted into a hundred or so different kinds. Counting the stars in the universe runs into astronomical naturally Most of them can be sorted into though new types keep appearing These are counts of cosmic items On the planet there is an uncountable number of bitsy much too small for human eyes to see. A few thousand types have made themselves either as friends or enemies. These have been but others are being discovered all the time. The types that affect our lives are but a small percentage of the teeming bacteria populations. The best that scientists can do is estimate and they admit that their most educated guesses may be far from the facts. For way back in the a playful scientist had a go at estimating the total bacteria population of the continental United States. The fanciful figure was approximately 30 plus a string of 24 zeros. most experts would consider this number to be much too small. Another major problem is size. Bacteria are measured in microns and their shapes are viewed with electron microscopes There are microns in one inch and a crowded colony of about bacteria is just about big enough for the human eye to see Different types come in a wide assortment of shapes. Their lengths range from one to eight microns and their widths from one half to two microns. Countless zillions of assorted types live in every patch of in every pond and stream. They teem throughout the plant crowding on the surface of every leaf. They swarm in the from ground level to miles above the surface. Their populations are crowded on every animal and on every surface we touch. The soapiest scrubbing removes only 90 per cent of the bacteria from your hands. And these tiny micro- organisms can multiply at astounding rates. Under thriving one bacterium can become a billion bacteria in six hours If this continued for 24 the weight of the colony would reach one billion tons. many individuals would change and produce new different from the original bacterium QuMtiora by chil- dren of Herald readers should be mailed to Ask P.O.
