I have normal levels lab work except free T4 high. I had thyroid scan it showed hyperthyroidism not graves. Why isn't it showing in my lab work?
Confusion: A thyroid scan cannot diagnose hyperthyroidism, only lab tests and doctor can. Graves' disease is a type of hyperthyroidism. Free T4 is usually not as accurate for diagnosis as tsh. Thyroid "uptake" may have been done with scan and can be elevated for several reasons other than hyperthyroidism, such as thyroid inflammation. See your doctor and/or an endocrinologist. ...Read more

I HAVE HYPERTHYROID (GRAVES) I AM ALLERGIC TO ANTI- THYROID DRUG. I broke out in hives last year MY CURRENT LAB RESULTS ARE SCARING ME. -JOHVANA?
I'm scared too: Please forgive my frankness. If hyperthyroidism isn't managed, you can go into thyroid storm and it's a coin toss whether you die. You got hives from your meds? You may need to take them anyway -- OR you may need to accept therapy with radioactive iodine. If you're resisted this in the past, it's time to reconsider. If it's not been offered, ask why. ...Read more

Yes, absolutely: Hi. Hyperthyroidism can be temporary in men and women. It's called a subacute or acute thyroiditis and is self-limited, usually followed by a self-limited period of hypothyroidism, and returning to normal over a total of a few months (other courses are also possible). Your numbers definitely could that, but could be other stuff too. See an endocrinologist; they know that stuff. Good luck! ...Read more
No: Hyperthyroidism is a health threatening condition that first needs an appropriate sub classification (graves, thyroiditis, multinodular goiter, etc.) and then treatment with an appropriate medication or procedure (radioactive iodine, surgery).

I do thyroid screening tests routinely. ...Read more
Eat balanced diet: If your thyroid is overactive, you need to get this treated. In the meantime, your body is hypermetabolic, and you will need to eat more calories to maintain your weight. There are no veggies that you need to avoid. A very large dose of iodine (eg. Radiographic contrast, some otc cold remedies) can sometimes worsen the hyperthyroidism but the iodine in a normal diet will not. ...Read more
