And excessive release of thyroid hormone that occurs during thyroid crisis can trigger malfunctioning of a number of organs so that it is a dangerous condition or condition that can even be life threatening.
To determine whether a person has a thyroid crisis in medicine has a certain scoring system to determine whether a person has entered a thyroid crisis condition or not. The higher the scoring number is usually the more direct or support towards the thyroid crisis.
Several factors can trigger the condition of thyroid crisis, the following factors that often become a trigger for thyroid crisis are:
Infection Disease or acute conditions such as acute heart attack, stroke, acute heart failure, trauma, diabetic coma Emotional stress Surgery or surgery outside the thyroid in patients with hyperthyroid conditions Stopping thyroid treatment without doctor's advice Radioiodine therapy Surgery or surgery on the thyroid gland without preparation Appropriate Pregnancy But currently there are no sources that explain in detail the data on the incidence of thyroid krirsi occur in Indonesia.
