Parveen Akhter's Story
Parveen Akhter, aged 45 years, suffered from body aches. She also lost weight and felt tremors from time to time. The symptoms continued for a few months. On visiting a doctor in a local hospital, she was prescribed multiple tests. Her condition remained undiagnosed. Then, her family contacted Transparent Hands for assistance. She was evaluated and diagnosed to have been suffering from goiter. Her workup was carried out in INMOL Hospital through the assistance of Transparent Hands organization. Among other tests, her thyroid scan and thyroid function tests were also done. This helped in accurate diagnosis of her condition which turned out to be simple multinodular goiter (MNG). It means that Parveen’s thyroid gland is enlarged. A subtotal thyroidectomy is advised as a treatment option for her.
