Can Overactive Thyroid Elevate Crp Level
Hs-CRP level of 4.2...could this be autoimmune thyroid related? Definitive high risk for cardiac problems? Thanks!
I have high CRP level 5.7. Normal CBC, normal cholesterols, normal thyroid, normal ferritin. 37 yr female, 5'11", 150. BAD TMJ, depression, fatigue?
TMJ: Your "bad TMJ" is not likely a cause and effect of the other aspects of your condition. If you have bruxism, this can negatively affect your TMJ. Chronic pain can result in depression. Please see a TMJ expert to try to get your TMJ under control. Any dentist can be a TMJ expert with the proper training and experience. Most commonly, oral surgeons, prosthodontists, and orofacial pain specialists. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers

Very unlikely: A very overactive thyroid is virtually always associated with a very low or undetectable tsh. Of course a laboratory error could be responsible and the test should always be repeated if it does not fit with the clinical picture. Lastly, stress and/or an underactive adrenal gland can sometime mimic and overactive thyroid. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Lymphadenopathy: This could be one or more of a dozen things, including ebv mononucleosis or several mononucleosis-like illnesses such as toxoplasmosis, CMV infection, tuberculosis, to say nothing of the potential for malignancies, although less likely. Other non-infectious entities may include sarcoid, autoimmune diseases, and so on and so on. This must be evaluated by an astute clinician. See your pcp. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Thyroid: I am assuming you already have your baby - congrats and enjoy. If your overactive thyroid is being treated with medicine you won't hurt your baby. If you have been treated with radio-active iodine within the last week you should be using a different lavatory from your baby. If you have had radio-active iodine longer than a week ago your baby should not be affected. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
A few reasons: The most common cause is an autoimmune condition where the body starts attacking the thyroid gland, a condition called graves disease where the thyroid starts overproducing thyroid hormones. Viral diseases can also cause inflammation of the thyroid, hence causing hyperthyroidism (thyroiditis) as well as some medications, commonly medications used to treat bipolar disease. ...Read more
No: Effective treatments for an overactive thyroid include radioactive iodine ablation, thyroid-blocking medicines, and surgery. Trying unproven therapies just delays the inevitable, and exposes the body to harmful effects of excess thyroid hormone including over-stimulation of the heart, loss of calcium from the bone, loss of muscle mass, and irritability/poor judgment affecting jobs & marriages. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Watch OTC meds: Agree w/ dr kern's answer. I would also suggest caution with otc (over-the-counter) products, especially those containing a decongestant used for relief of cold and allergy symptoms. Many otc products include a warning not to use them if you have thyroid disease. If your overactive thyroid is mild or has been successfully treated, they may be fine, but check w/ your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Need thyroid function tests -a set of blood tests to be done in addition to lipid profile, CBC to r/o anemia which can result from thryoid dz, alkaline phosphatase from high from bone turnover in overactive dz. Also need to get thyroid ultrasound. ...Read more
If a person has an overactive thyroid, can it be only partially destroyed by a small dose of i131?
Usually not: Attempts have been made in the past to give multiple small doses of i131 until thyroid levels are normal. Unfortunately, this usually doesn't work. By the time you give enough i131 to get rid of the overactive thyroid, most people will become hypothyroid anyhow. I think the best way is to take a dose that will work, and not worry if you become hypothyroid, as this is easily treated. ...Read more
Graves' disease: An overactive thyroid can cause graves' disease. This is a condition associated with swelling of the tissues that surround your eyes, leading to eyelid retraction ("bug eyes"). If severe enough, this can cause significant eye irritation, double vision and redness. In severe cases, the swelling can damage the optic nerve and cause major visual loss. This needs to be followed by your eye doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
