Is chronic thyroiditis curable?
When yes, how?
May euthyrox therapy help, or it supplies just the deficiency of the hormon?
No.: Thyroid replacement is indicated only if the thyroiditis causes hypothyroidism. This may take years to develop and the thyroid antibody levels are markers for the disease, and poorly correlate with disease activity. The disease is mediated by t-lymphocytes, not the antibodies. You simply need a TSH and free-t3 drawn to make sure you are not hypothyroid! ...Read more

Hi doctors, , why hasimoto' s thyroiditis is painless, even there's a chronic inflammation, ? Thanks
No: Autoimmune thyroiditis can occur in young children, adolescents and adults of any age. We see it most often in children who have a family history of that condition. In many children that we have seen, it was mild but symptomatic enough that their mother recognized the condition and sought treatment. Even with mild disease in children the treatment can have profound benefits. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis w/nodule for the past 2yrs. The episodes are more frequent and my b/p is ↑despite meds. Can removal fix this?
Probably not: High blood pressure is not usually related to chronic lymphocytic thyroiditis (hashimoto thyroiditis). Blood pressure elevation is usually seen in "hyper-thyroidism" not "hypo-thyroidism"; the latter is hashimoto thyroiditis. So, removing the nodule will probably not affect your blood pressure. ...Read more
Is it possible to have transient thyroiditis symptoms for 4 years? Can you go from one inflammatory stage to the next with hypothyroidism between?
Yes and No.: Yes you may have symptoms that look like thyroid symptoms. No they are not likely to be due to 4 years of thyroiditis and it certainly would not be called "transient" at that point. Thyroiditis - inflammation of the thyroid- may be caused by trauma / toxins/ infection or autoimmune disease. All of these processes resolve or progress within a four year span. ...Read more

How long can a chronic urticaria last? Apparentely it is related with hashimoto thyroiditis.. Any idea? Its been 1year of hives and angioedemas.
Can be a long time: The association with hashimoto's thyroiditis is generally just thought to be that people who make antibodies to one thing inappropriately (thyroid) are more likely to make antibodies to other things inappropriately (mast cell receptors which can be a cause for urticaria). Most chronic urticarias last 2 weeks to 2 months, but 10-20% can last more than 2 years. ...Read more

Pain or no pain!: Most commonly, thyoriditis is silent (no symptoms), and may cause an overactive or, eventually, underactive thyroid condition which can cause symptoms. Often referred to as hashimoto thyroiditis. Sometimes, the thyroiditis causes swelling (goiter) or nodules in the gland and, if large enough, trouble swallowing. In other cases the gland can be quite painful. ...Read more
