Almond Milk Thyroid Problems
Unlikely: This localized issue as you describe is unlike to be related to a food allergy. You can always stop the almond milk for a couple of weeks and see if it disappears but I doubt any relationship.

I have recently started drinking almond milk and been developing blister like marks on my back and neck... Is this an allergic reaction?
Many different ways: It is difficult to answer in400 spaces but I will try hyperthyroidism is caused by too much hormone produced like in graves disease where your bodies immune system attacks the gland and it overproduces the hormone hypothroidism is also caused most of the time by auto immune disorder which cause thyroid to produce less hormones goiter caused by iodine deficiency cancer caused by radiation/unknown.
Have regular checkup: If family members have thyroid problems, it is not automatic that you will. Also, of all the hereditary diseases that you could have, thyroid problems (hypo or hyper) are not all that bad and they should be readily treatable. See your doctor for regular checkups, including feeling your thyroid and thyroid blood tests, to catch anything early.
Depends: It depends on the severity of your thyroid disease. If you have thyroid disease that's properly treated, then there is no restriction to how much you can exercise. If your thyroid disease is not treated yet, see your doc to get it treated before engaging in vigorous exercise.
Tests: Thyroid tests include two kinds -- function and physical appearance. One does not exclude the other. Lab testing can tell the function and antibody lab tests can tell inflammation. There are also lab tests for certain tumors. Radiology tests can tell the appearance ie nodules, inflammation, cysts, enlargement.
Depends: There are two types of thyroid problems: 1.Functional- with high or low hormones, generally treated with medicine and 2.Structural - a thyroid nodule generally worked up with ultrasound and a fine needle aspiration if appropriate. So basically it depends on what type of thyroid problem you have. Good luck!
Yes: Thyroid problems can occur at any age.
Yes, don't use it: Bladderwrack comes from seaweed, and contains a lot of iodine. Too much iodine can cause hyperthyroidism (or hypothyroidism). Also, bladderwrack does not help with weight loss. Also, since it is not regulated and comes from the sea, you don't know whether it contains mercury or other toxic metals.
