I sweat when im not doing anything. I've got my thyroid checked twice and didn't need any treatment. What could be wrong with me?

I sweat when im not doing anything. I've got my thyroid checked twice and didn't need any treatment. What could be wrong with me?

Sweating out toxins: Fyi: admittedly, hyperhidrosis can really be a drag. On the other hand, it is better to sweat "too much" than "not enough, " because sweating (because it allows for the excretion of lipophilic, i.e., fat-loving, toxins) is one of the best ways to rid the body of toxins (detoxify). In addition to the skin, other organs of excretion include the gastrointestinal system, the kidneys, and the lungs. ...Read more

I'm scared that if I do not get treatment i will end up getting thyroid storm. Please can someone help me and tell me what I should do.

See endocrinologist: I assume that you have been diagnosed with an overactive thyroid. You wrote down thyroiditis as a condition. If you have "subacute thyroiditis", this is a self limited inflammation of the thyroid that will eventually resolve. Although thyroid levels can temporarily be high and give you symptoms, it would be extremely unlikely to cause thyroid storm. You should followup with your doctor or endo. ...Read more

Dr. Christine northrup mentions that women in perimenopause benefit from thyroid treatment regardless of test results, why do others disagree?

Some of the things they promote are good and based on sound scientific evidence, many things however, have no scientific proof. There are no legitimate studies that demonstrate a benefit to taking thyroid hormone in people who have no thyroid problem. Any med has side effects. ...Read more
