Hashimotos Disease And Hives
Broke out in hives on my back after being in the sun. Can it lead to anaphylaxis? And can my hashimotos make my body more sensitive to sun?
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

You can take second generation anti-histamines for the chronic urticaria. Hope that helps. Contact me if you have any other questions :-) Dr. M ...Read more
Thyroid antibodies: Hashimoto's disease is a condition in which antibodies are directed toward the thyroid. This often results in underactivity of the thyroid. Untreated, this can cause fatigue, modest weight gain, dry skin, constipation, and other symptoms associated with a slowing of the metabolism. These symptoms all resolve with replacement of thyroid hormone. ...Read more
Hashimoto's: Hashimoto's disease is an autoimmune disease of the thyroid, the most common cause for low thyroid. Antibodies that diagnose it (thyroglobulin and thyroid peroxidase), are surrogate markers and are not resonsible for the damage that occurs in the thyroid. It is a lymphocyctic infiltrate that causes thyroid damage. You can have markers for this and not be hypothyroid now, or indefinite years. ...Read more
Depends: Hashimoto's thyroiditis is the most common cause for developing a low thyroid in the us. It is an autoimmune disorder directed against your thyroid. There is no treatment for the autoimmune part, but if you have hypothyroidism, this would be treated with thyroid hormone. One can also have an enlarged thyroid related to hashimoto's. You should have an ultrasound to look at your thyroid. ...Read more
Asymptomatic to: Thyroid failure: hashimoto disease is an autoimmune disorder of the thyroid and in its early phases may be asymptotic. It can cause transient symptoms of thyroid hyper-function, e.g., rapid pulse, weight loss, heat intolerance; followed by thyroid deficiency, e.g., cold intolerance, weakness, constipation, coarse skin etc. There may also be a goiter. ...Read more

Avoid excess iodine: A common misunderstanding about autoimmune thyroid disease such as Hashimoto's thyroiditis or Graves disease is that excess iodine tends to make it worse, not better. You should avoid foods that contain excess iodine, such as kelp or seaweed (sushi wrap). There are no dietary restrictions otherwise. ...Read more
