Mechanism: The thyroid has 2 months of thyroid hormones stored inside it. When it gets inflamed (thyroidtis), it can't hold on to the thyroid hormones and the hormones leak out into the blood stream.

Once all the hormone is leaked out, there is no hormones left and the body has to make the hormone again which is why you become low. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Had 7mm thyroid nodule that went away in a month.Also found to have thyroiditis.Dr said thyroiditis can cause thyroid to look like it has a nodule?
Correct: Your doctor is right. Ultrasound picks up the most tiny of abberations, and a 7 mm nodule may well be of no consequence, or be part of the heterogeneity of hashimotos thyroiditis or scarring left over from subacute thyroiditis.
