do honey and cinnamon help hyperthyroid patients?

No: Only if you like the taste, but they do nothing to help your thyroid. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or the internet. The only treatment for hyperthyroidism is radioiodine or anti-thyroid medication.

When can I feed my baby honey?

2 doctor answers6 doctors weighed in
Dr. Roy Benaroch
Pediatrics 27 years experience
12 months: Natural, unprocessed honey (the kind usually found in supermarkets, sometimes in a plastic jar shaped like a bear) should never be given to babies less than 12 months of age. It can contain botulism spores that a young baby can't fight off.
A 45-year-old member asked:

Is it safe to eat honey while pregnant?

2 doctor answers3 doctors weighed in
Dr. Patrick Weix
Specializes in Obstetrics and Gynecology
Yes: I'm guessing the concern here is over the recommendation not to feed honey to infants less than one year of age. Infants in their first year can have their intestines colonized by the bacteria that produces botulism toxin. Honey can contain these bacterial spores, but does not contain the toxin, so it will not harm you or your fetus if you ingest it.

How could hyperthyroidism affect cardiac output?

Dr. Susan Wingo
Endocrinology 33 years experience
Usually increases it: Cardiac output describes the amount of blood pumped through the heart in 1 minute. Two effects of high thyroid levels are an increased heart rate (more beats per minute) and an increased stroke volume (more blood per beat). These combine to increase the the cardiac output.. However, at some point, the increased work can cause the heart to fail, and the cardiac output will fall.
