Calling the PDM insincere and callous for its remarks regarding local government and when and how it would be formed; denying that government is flip flopping on the issue. The country’s DP who is a part of the consultative team for constitutional reform said it was a low and unnecessary jab for something that is mandated to happen because of the constitution… “It therefore baffles me why the Leader of the Opposition would degrade this process, which is of national importance, by politicizing it and minimalizing it, and shadowing it with another foiled and failed farce of an attempt by the Leader of the Opposition to mislead the public.” Stronger Local government was called for by Family Islanders who attended the constitutional review committee meetings and local government was last week discussed at Cabinet… During that session it was agreed for a working group to be established; it will be led by the Minister of Environment and Home Affairs, Amanda Missick and the Attorney General, Rhondalee Knowles. The pair is charged with considering proposals for the establishment of District Boards and local Government across the islands. Attorney calls on UWI to honor TCI leaders
Over 20 per cent women in India live with an undiagnosed thyroid problem and do not even realise that it is the cause of various health issues including infertility, health experts have said. Thyroid is a small butterfly-shaped gland in the neck that produces thyroid hormones that help regulate the human body’s energy use. Sometimes the thyroid makes too much or too little of these hormones. When thyroid hormone production drops (hypothyroidism), the body’s processes slow down and change. On the other hand, overactive levels of the hormone (hyperthyroidism) can speed up the body’s functions.

Low levels of thyroid hormone can interfere with ovulation, which impairs fertility, the experts said. “Thyroid is a very common problem especially post 25 years of age and women are four times more prone to thyroid disorders than men,” experts said. “Undiagnosed and untreated thyroid disease can be a cause for infertility or frequent miscarriage.” Infertility symptoms can include disturbed menstrual cycle, heavy and less frequent periods, low basal body temperature and difficulty in conceiving.

An undiagnosed thyroid problem could also be the cause of other health issues including symptoms such as weight gain, fatigue, constipation, muscle and joint aches, sluggishness, intolerance towards cold weather, abnormal and irregular periods and sleeplessness, among others. “Infertility is a major health threat due to thyroid and many other conditions that are often the direct result of undiagnosed and untreated thyroid conditions,” explained experts. “In order to lead a healthy life I would recommend that all patients who recognize any of these symptoms should go for a TSH test,” experts noted. Hyperthyroidism can be treated in many ways such as TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) test, chest X-ray, T4 or thyroxin test. However, a doctor chooses the line of treatment on the basis of a number of variables like the underlying cause of hyperthyroidism, the age of the patient, the size of the thyroid gland and the presence of coexisting medical illnesses. Maintaining a healthy lifestyle, including getting proper diagnosis, weight loss, ample sleep, de-stressing, regular exercise, not ignoring early symptoms and an adequate diet are essential.
