    Organ transplant

    Hi everyone, this is just a general discussion or idea I want to put forward to you. Its about organ transplant, since the thyroid is so important to a persons health and well being shouldn't those of us who had their thyroids removed be put on the list for a thyroid transplant? Our healths would / could improve dramatically. I've heard of heart, kidney, liver transplants but not thyroid transplants, why don't they do this, is it to do with money?

    just a thought, what do people think?

    hm...i never thought about that!
    i guess it's too complicated, thyroid is different than any other organ, you got heart, kidney etc. all of them do specific thing to our body while thyroid is like a little brain that controls everything. Maybe thyroid can't be transplated because its just one for every person...

    I guess we have to ask a qualified medical professional about it

    Found this online, apparently human to human thyroid transplants have been unsuccessful because of rejection, but animal to human thyroid transplants have a better chance
