Hashimoto thyroidism, HGH bld pressure vitamin d sufficient, excess weight gain, feel tired all the time, would amphetamine boost my energy?

Hashimoto thyroidism, HGH bld pressure vitamin d sufficient, excess weight gain, feel tired all the time, would amphetamine boost my energy?

Yes, but: It would be potentially dangerous and possibly illegal depending upon the source of the amphetamines. Why put something in your body that is harmful and can potentially kill you? Also, get off the armour thyroid, which is ground up pig tissue and have your doctor put you on brand name T4 replacement, which is better and safer. ...Read more

I have hashimoto thyroidism, pituitary tumor, seizures, lesion on my brain and had multiple concussions. My calves are hurting bad what could this be?

Wow- a lot!: This can either be as simple as muscular if you have had any changes in excercise or even trauma (fall, seizure). Or it can be neurological, neuropathic pain due to your comorbidities or even the brain lesion. Or vascular such as a DVT or blood clot in your veins. I would recommend that you get evaluated at your earliest convenience. ...Read more

Hashimotos, thyroid function stable while off Medes past 12 months, antibodies really high, still get symptoms and swelling of thyroid?

Hashimotos, thyroid function stable while off Medes past 12 months, antibodies really high, still get symptoms and swelling of thyroid?

That's not uncommon: Hi. Hashimoto's defined by thyroid autoantibodies, with or without a goiter, and normal thyroid function is fairly commonly seen (when it's looked for, that is). The degree of elevation of autoantibodies does not imply how soon thyroid function will begin to be lost. I recommend just follow your thyroid function periodically and anytime new symptoms arise. Good luck! ...Read more

Can a hashimoto thyroid goiter be shrunk with diet?

Can a hashimoto thyroid goiter be shrunk with diet?

No effect of diet: Unfortunately, it is an autoimmune disease, controlled by antibodies to the thyroid, and diet will not help. If you are hypothyroid, you may benefit from levothyroxine. But it is hard to get that inflamed thyroid to shrink. ...Read more

I'm only a teenager and I have hashimotos thyroid disease. My big concern is that im loosing a lot of hair.

See you doctor: If you are having alopecia it could due to your thyroid levels being increased, which are sometimes seen early on in hashimotos before signs of hypothryoidism. Also, signs of hyperthyroidism are diarrhea, weight loss, and dry skin. ...Read more

Lost a patch of hair than found out I have hashimotos thyroid problems. Will the hair grow back? It's been 6 years and will I loose more hair?

Possibly: Thyroid level changes, either going up or down are associated with temporary hair loss. A chronically low level causes chronic hair loss. Autoimmune disorders, such as hashimotos can be associated with a chronic diffuse hair loss. Alopecia areata is a seperate but associated autoimmune disorder in which one loses patches of hair resulting in bald spots. This can be treated. ...Read more

What is the difference between hashimoto thyroid and thyroiditis? Are they autoimmune diseases?

What is the difference between hashimoto thyroid and thyroiditis? Are they autoimmune diseases?

Often same: 'Thyroiditis' is an inflammatory process of the thyroid gland. Can be caused by virus, usually responds to anti-inflammatory medication and is self-limited. Hashimoto's thyroiditis similar, but is an autoimmune disorder where the antibodies attack the thyroid tissue, as though it was foreign. Over or underactive function could occur, but often becomes chronic and may need thyroid rx for life. ...Read more

Slow fetal heart rate and growth and hashimoto's thyroid. Any correlation? I am 7.5 weeks and measure 6.5 weeks. Today's heart rate was 72.

Thyroid disease: If your TSH is normal and you are taking your thyroid meds as directed it shouldn't have an effect on the fetal heart rate. Unfortunately we do sometimes see a slow heart rate before an embryonic demise. You probably need a short term follow up ultrasound to recheck. At 45 your risk of miscarriage and fetal chromosome issues is much higher. ...Read more

23 yrs old f; thyroid peroxidase 13 (norm); thyroglobulin, antibody 3.0 (high); TSH 10.850 (high); nomal T3 (liothyronine) & t4. Hashimotos? Possible thyroid cancer

Possible to 1st : Thyroglobulin is a test that is helpful after someone has surgery for the most common thyroid cancer. Thyroid function tests can test how well your thyroid is working. If there is concern for cancer it is helpful to get a thyroid ultrasound and then a biopsy if clinically indicated. ...Read more

Will removing thyroid solve or help hashimotos? Already on thyroid meds and understand that would have to continue.

Thyroidectomy Worse: Thyroidectomy would worsen your problem. Get Broda Barnes' book, Hypothyroidism, the Unsuspected Illness. You should be on Armour Thyroid, or West-Throid--not synthroid (thyroxine). You also should be on herbal anti-inflammatory substances like Boswella and Turmeric. Adjust your dose of thyroid based on your heart rate and temperature--and how you feel. The blood test is a waste of blood. ...Read more

Is it possible for 25 mcg of levothyroxine to normalize my hypo thyroid (hashimoto) right away or is it possible that it normalized itself?

Is it possible for 25 mcg of levothyroxine to normalize my hypo thyroid (hashimoto) right away or is it possible that it normalized itself?

Depends on the TSH: Your dose of levothyroxine is tiny, just about the lowest. When you have low thyroid function your TSH is high, above 4. Taking the
levo lowers it to normal by adding more thyroid hormone to your blood. So if your TSH is now less than 4, then you are O.K.
On the other hand, if you require only 25 mcg, you probably have a thyroid that is just abouit normal and do not need any thyroid medication. ...Read more

Hashimotos & swollen aching thyroid. Just weened off prednisone fully. Taking 1 if needed & I am. But thyroid hurts still. Anything else I can do?

Thyroiditis: Are you hyperthyroid? I am wondering if you have Hashitoxicosis, or some kind of Graves/Hashi overlap. This usually resolves on its own (I realize that is no consolation). NSAIDS (eg ibuprofen) may help. If you are hyperthyroid, treating with methimazole may help. ...Read more

I have hashimotos, on armour thyroid, tsh, ft3, ft4 is normal but antibodies are high. I have lots of symptoms. How can I get my antibodies down?

Do not treat antibod: Hashimoto's is an autoimmune disorder of the thyroid. Although many people have hypothyroidism, they can have normal thyroid function initially, as you do. Your symptoms are not likely to be related to your thyroid. High thyroid antibodies are simply an indicator of having autoimmune thyroid disease, it has nothing to do with the course of the disorder. Trying to treat the antibodies will not help. ...Read more

Calcium 2.38mmol/l, TSH 13.5mu/l, pth 4.6 pmol/l. I have hashimotos and 2 thyroid nodules less than 1cm. What does this mean?

Calcium 2.38mmol/l, TSH 13.5mu/l, pth 4.6 pmol/l. I have hashimotos and 2 thyroid nodules less than 1cm. What does this mean?

Various: You have various problems. Your thyroid level is low and needs to be treated with brand name T4 replacement. The nodules depend upon what they look like on ultrasound and other thyroid blood tests. May beed biopsy. Calcium is normal. Don't know the normals for PTH in pmol/l-also varies with type of PTH assay. Talk w/your doctor. ...Read more
