Can protein deficiency cause hypothyroidism - Doctor answers
I have all symptoms of hypothyroidism, but blood tests are normal. Plus a swollen thyroid left side. What can cause this? Hair is really falling out.
Other possibilities.: The Thyroid is not the only endocrine gland that affects metabolism, mood, menstrual cycles and hair follicle activity in women your age. It's quite possible that you are experiencing peri-menopause, or that you have Vitamin D deficiency. Has the enlargement of the thyroid gland been confirmed/examined with ultrasound? If not it should be. Your other hormones and a D level should be checked also. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Will vitamin d deficiency cause hypothyroidism? My tsh is 18.8, T3 and T4 are normal. If tsh become normal can I stop thyronorm tablet?
Not related to vitaD: And the tsh shows the pituitary gland is trying very hard to keep homone levels up to normal (why the TSH is so high). Most likely thyroid medicaiton is working to maintain the thyroid hormones. Lowering the thyroid hormone and the TSH would go sky high. ...Read more
Being vitamin deficient (never taking any vitamins) til now. Could that have weakened my thyroid and caused me to have hypothyroidism?
Vitamins are in food: A person in the U.S. Who eats a balanced diet, has normal digestion, and exercises outdoors regularly, does not become vitamin-deficient even if she never buys any vitamin-supplements from the store. Some disorders can make a person deficient in certain vitamins over time, so doctors do check for certain conditions as needed. Not getting iodine from salt or foods, may lead to thyroid problems. ...Read more
Months: Iodine deficiency is uncommon in the USA and civilized countries given the presence of iodized salt and the relative availability of seafood. It is still a sizable problem in the developing world however. It would probably take at least a month or two (if not longer) before a low iodine diet would lead to clinical hypothyroidism. The use of iodized salt generally will prevent this problem. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Do hypothyroidism&vit d deficiency put me at risk for anything else or anything more serious? I'm on meds for both (vit d 50, 000 IU weekly&synthroid.)

Maintain a relationship with your PCP, report symptoms as they occur. ...Read more

I have hypothyroidism and im taking a thermogenic amplifier along with a protein shake is this safe with my deication im also stabilized on my meds?
Maybe (not). . .: It's impossible to tell whether something is safe w/o knowing what it is. Thermogenic amplifier is just a marketing term used by manufacturers of dietary supplements who aren't required to prove safety or effectiveness of their product as long as the label has standard disclaimer. Worse, there's no proof that product is clean w/o contaminants that might not be safe. So is it safe? I don't know. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I take Synthroid (thyroxine) every morning for hypothyroidism. I normally have a soy protein drink every morning. Can the soy interfere with my synthroid (thyroxine)?
Yes it may interfere: Almost everything interferes with absorption of thyroid. If you have been drinking the soy drink with the thyroid, but your doctor thinks the levels look good then don't change what you are doing. However, if you are just beginning synthroid (thyroxine) therapy, wait about 1&1/2 hours after taking the synthroid (thyroxine) before drinking the soy drink. ...Read more
I have hypothyroidism and trying to start an intense workout routine, is it safe to drink protein shakes with my condition? Thanks.
Yes, no problem: If your hypothyroidism is being properly treated you'll have normal levels of thyroid hormone & thus have the same levels of thyroid as a normal person & you can function normally. But many just on levothyroxine don't have adequate t3; ask your doctor to check your free t3; if not in the upper half of the normal range you may benefit from liothyronine (cytomel) as well.
