Thyroid diseases sometimes result from inappropriate TSH levels, ormay be caused by problems in the thyroid gland itself. The most common cause of hypothyroidism is Hashimoto's thyroiditis,an autoimmune condition where the body makes antibodies thatdestroy parts of the thyroid gland. Surgical remov…al and certainmedications (e.g., amiodarone, lithium) can also causehypothyroidism. Other causes of hypothyroidism include pituitary problems,hypothalamus problems, and iodine deficiency (rare in NorthAmerica, but affects nearly 2 billion people worldwide). Graves' disease is the most common cause of hyperthyroidism.This condition occurs when the immune system produces an antibodythat stimulates the entire thyroid gland; this leads tooveractivity and higher levels of thyroid hormones. Secondary hyperthyroidism is caused when the pituitary glandmakes too much TSH, leading to constant stimulation of the thyroidgland. A pituitary tumour may cause TSH levels to rise. Morerarely, the pituitary gland becomes insensitive to thyroidhormones, no longer responding to high levels. Another possible cause of hyperthyroidism is a condition called thyroiditis . This condition occurs when the thyroid glandbecomes inflamed. Depending on the type of thyroiditis, this maylead to temporary hyperthyroidism that might be followed byhypothyroidism. (MORE)
Yes, thyroid problem is one of the other cause for snoring. Thyroidstimulating hormone (TSH), which is released by the pituitarygland.

Tetanus (Clostrudium tetani toxin) gets its name from its ability to cause tetany. The most common cause is low serum calcium levels which can be caused by parathyroid hormone or vitamin D deficiency. Hyperventilating or other acid-base problems can shift the binding of calcium and cause effecti…vely low levels and tetany. Low magnesium and excess potassium can also do it. (MORE)
Grass tetany is an anti-quality factor and a metabolic diseasewhere livestock experience a severe case of magnesium deficiencywhile on spring pasture. Also known as hypomagnesemic tetany, grassstaggers, winter tetany or wheat pature poisoning, it primarilyaffects older lactating cows that are 2 mont…hs into their lactationperiod (or suckling 2-month old calves) but can also affect youngor dry cows and growing calves. Grass tetany primarily occurs while grass is in its vegetativestage (or succulent immature grass) and after a pasture had beenfertilized with lots of nitrogen. Nitrogen will decreaseavailability of magnesium to cattle, especially with potassium-richsoils, causing a significant decrease in magnesium in the bloodserum of cattle.

Clostridium tetani. This is a bacterium which commonly lives in the soil. It can only grow and produce toxins when little oxygen is around, so just playing around in the dirt would not get you infected. Typically, tetanus occurs when a deep stabwound is made with a dirty object, say a rusty nail, on… which the Clostridium bacteria are present. On superficial wounds, there would be too much oxygen and the bacteria wouldn't grow, in a deep wound that is more or less shut off from the outside air, oxygen is quickly consumed by other bacteria, allowing the Clostridia to reproduce and produce toxins. These are responsible for the cramps typical for tetanus. (MORE)
