Maybe herpes...: Hmm... You have a misunderstanding about genital herpes. There is no such thing as "not sexually transmitted kind" of genital herpes. However, rarely causes prolonged open sores. Nevertheless, herpes is a possible cause if you have some sort of immune deficiency disease or are taking immune suppressing drugs. Work with your doctor on it; or maybe need infectious diseases consultation. Good luck!
Diet's not the key: Being hypothyroid is difficult enough without subscientific / pop diet recommendations. You can basically eat what you please (healthy choices, of course, and limit your calories as you may tend to overeat / get fat.) but you must take your thyroid replacement medicine or your life will be ruined.See 1 more doctor answer
Numerous: Abnormal thyroid functioning may adversely affect a person's mood. It can also cause weight gain, hair loss, dry skin, fatigue, as well as other problems. Hypothyroidism can be caused by the thyroid gland itself and can also be caused by certain medications, like lithium. If a person's pituitary gland is not functioning properly, that may cause hypothyroidism. There are thyroid replacement drugs.
None: Hypothyroidism is not caused or affected (for better or worse) by any specific food. It is treated with specific medicine.
Low Function Thyroid: Hypothyroidism means your thyroid is either not produing enough or somethimes any of the hormones needed for basic functioning. It controls metabolism, heart rate, body temperature, and most normaly functions of homeostasis and even controls some of your other glands production of hormones. It can be life-threatening if not treated. Medication will correct the problems.
Not usually: Occasionally, hypothyroidism is caused by a temporary condition such as thyroiditis, or inflammation of the thyroid gland. Such cases usually do resolve, and the thyroid goes back to making normal amounts of thyroid hormone. Most of the time, however, the thyroid gland makes less and less thyroid hormone over time, and lifelong treatment with thyroid hormone is needed.See 2 more doctor answers
