Is the risk of thyroid carcinoma increased with diagnosis of hashimoto thyroiditis when multiple thyroid adenomas are present. Tyab 2470?
Not if they function: If the adenomas are "cold" or do not function, then they are likely to be malignant. They do not show up on radionuclide scan because they do not function. Otherwise they are unlikely to be malignant. However, since you have many of them, you likely need and should get further workup, like aspiration biopsy, etc., along with treatment for your hashimoto's. ...Read more
Does multinodular goiter with slightly elevated thyroid antibodies possibly mean an autoimmune thyroid disease?
I have subclinical hypothyroidism, vitiligo and dermatitis. Am I at a higher risk of more autoimmune diseases like diabetes, MS etc?
Hypothyroidism w/ elevated tpo antibodies, low t, adrenal insufficiency... Synthroid (thyroxine) & testosterone hasn't helped. Can I have an autoimmune disease?
You do have it: Elevated tpo antibodies confirms you have autoimmune thyroiditis. This is often triggered by environmental toxins ;/or infections. You will likely benefit from adding liothyronine to your regimen ; treating adrenal problems with cordyceps, rhodiola etc. I advise consulting with a holistic doc.

Complex.: Pregnancy will raise thyroglobulin values, necessitating an increase in total thyroid production. If hashimoto's is present, thyroid function must be assessed by free T3 (liothyronine) values and TSH during pregnancy to avoid low thyroid. Many women will develop a goiter during pregnancy, but this is physiologic. But it is imperative to constantly moniter thyroid function of the mother, or the fetus can be hurt. ...Read more
I have hypocretin deficient narcolepsy which reduces TSH levels along with autoimmune hypothyroidism. Is the TSH test reliable to gauge my thyroid?
Not always: TSH is not always a reliable test, because it relies on what the pituitary thinks, but different tissues may have different sensitivity to thyroid hormone. In addition, some people make too much reverse T3 (liothyronine), (liothyronine) which can block the action of T3 (liothyronine).
