Can Antibiotics Bring On Hyperthyroidism

Not typically: Different mechanism as to how pancreatitis and thyroid diesase occurs. Some drugs can indeed affect thyroid function, e.g. Some cardiac meds, interferon. Arguably, some idiosyncratic reaction (unexpected, unpredictable, and for no known reason) to any med could conceivably stimulate the immune system to cause hyperthyroidism-would be pretty rare. ...Read more

Yes, absolutely: Hi. Hyperthyroidism can be temporary in men and women. It's called a subacute or acute thyroiditis and is self-limited, usually followed by a self-limited period of hypothyroidism, and returning to normal over a total of a few months (other courses are also possible).

Radiographic contrast, some otc cold remedies) can sometimes worsen the hyperthyroidism but the iodine in a normal diet will not. ...Read more
