Can the thyroid gland grow back or is it possible to regrow your thyroid? We will explore that very question in this video.
One question I get from many thyroid patients is whether or not the thyroid gland can grow back.
They are asking because they have often been told that they will need to be on thyroid medication for the rest of their lives.
This proposition doesn’t sound appealing, so it’s at least worth looking into whether or not it’s possible for the thyroid gland to regrow.
Unfortunately, it’s not possible, at least not in the way that you are probably thinking about it.
The thyroid gland, like brain tissue and heart tissue, does NOT grow back once it’s dead.
But there is a difference between DAMAGED thyroid gland tissue and DESTROYED thyroid gland tissue.
Damaged thyroid gland tissue can be salvaged and it may be possible to restore some of this damaged gland tissue back to its former glory.
There are, however, some situations and conditions in which it’s not possible to see this.
Learn more about these conditions and whether or not it’s possible to salvage your thyroid gland based on your thyroid condition.
