How Much Weight Will I Gain When I Lose My Thyroid Due To Surgery
No change: You should not gain or lose weight with thyroid surgery. You should be placed on thyroid replacement right after surgery. If the dose is correct, there should be no change in your thyroid level and thus no effect in weight loss/gain. A blood test 2-3 months after starting thyroid replacement will tell you if the dose chosen was the correct dose. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Hi my TSH 3rd generation result is 100. I have always been overweight and have recently gained a little bit of weight. Have irregular periods and recently there has been issue of constipation.
It seems I would fall into the category of hypo-thyroidism.
I'm not sure what: ..units are being used to measure your TSH level, but 100??? In the USA, the standard value that labs use to measure TSH is microunits/ml and normal values range from 0.4 to 4.0 microunits/ml. If you're TSH is 100 mcu/ml, then definitely something's wrong with your thyroid or the hormones regulating it. This test result requires follow up and either clarification or treatment. ...Read more

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?

I am donating plasma for about five months now and I have hypo thyroidism and take 250 mcgs gaining weight low iron low protein is donating healthy?
Hard to say: One can get estimates by asking around.

Hospital bills are hard to predict, and there are separate bills for lots of different items such as labs, meds, x-rays, etc... And also anesthesiologists, radiologists, pathologists. ...Read more

I take 125mg levo due to partial surgery, can I take a drop of iodine daily as well? (Had partial of thyroid gland removed/benign tumor 35yrs ago.
I surgically removed thyroid 4 years ago due to grave's disease. Now TSH started to drop so i found that I have a pyramidal lobe 3cm. Surgery again?
My aunt has been diagnosed with thyroid gland enlarged due to lack of iodine. Doc said to wait for 6months before doing the surgery.Wht food r good?
Salt and bread: Unless you like outside the us and in one of a very few countries, it is difficult to become iodine deficient. Leafy vegetables, iodized salt, multivitamins w/iodine, and bread (as long as it's mass produced in a factory) are all sources of iodine. Thyroid hormone can also shrink the thyroid. For many (or even most) people, proper treatment should eliminate the need for surgery which has risks. ...Read more
