i think everybody's there so we'll share my screen and you will see um it's an exciting exciting lecture um and with exciting information i uh so efficient thyroid treatment this is something very important for us um because i'm in a family since five four generations where we're talking about thyroid therapy and everything started with my great grandfather his name is dr eugene hertoghe he wrote many books on thyroid therapy and now his most important book this book is republished as an e-book in french but also in english here are some other of his books but there are many many others and he was the one who actually brought the thyroid treatment to the united states and and is the information is published in the international clinical week in 1914. i have also exceptionally here the opportunity to have dr dennis wilson so let me see if you can stop sharing a moment and viewing and um okay dennis you're there i yes okay good um your video is also on so that's perfect so dennis um you're the author of um i would say a real famous book called the wilson syndrome following your name and you're going to give at the end of this lecture a lot of information about it and it's completely complementary to what i give so i really am excited and i thank you for being here do you have a little word you want to say to the public already ah just my it's just my pleasure and honor to be here with you today dr hirotog and i'm looking forward to uh listening to your your thoughts and also uh sharing some of what we have planned to discuss great so um you can close down back your video and your microphone and then i'll see you in about an hour 20 minutes an hour 30 minutes thank you dennis um so i'm sharing back my screen and here i am and so the how frequent is the fact of having a low thyroid function an unsufficient thyroid function called hypothyroidism well the frequency is really much higher than physicians often have been taught at the university when you look at a whole population for example like here well actually 50 to 80 of the population may be called hypothyroid when you look into real research on that and then when you look here for example they can be swollen eyes a puffy face here and there and and all this is actually due to untreated thyroid function and here for example when you look at the at aging aging itself slowly there's a decline of the most important thyroid hormone during aging progressively and this is not an adaptation to aging it's just that the thyroid gland is um actually um uh getting too old to to produce enough thyroid hormones so the older you are the more likely you are to be hypothyroid and the t4 so age 20 you have about minus seven percent compared to before because children have higher thyroid hormones but at age 90 it's minus 45 percent so that's really will make a really a big difference and then the t4 that's the other hormone the most abundant hormone in our blood but not in our cells that's the t3 and that also declines in aging and you have a minus five percent at each 20 and then it's minus 40 percent at age 90.
