What could cause weight loss but normal/good appetite besides hyperthyroid in a young patient?

A few things: Age is a factor here. A young person going thru a growth spurt would have increased caloric needs and if these were not met, weight could be lost. On the other hand, if a person increased their activity level this would also increase caloric needs. This again would lead to weight loss if the the new caloric needs were not met. In both cases a person's appetite may increase or stay normal. Read more

With low TSH levels hyperthyroid is off the table right? What other issues, full normal blood panel, could cause a major weight loss?

With low TSH levels hyperthyroid is off the table right? What other issues, full normal blood panel, could cause a major weight loss?

Low tsh?: Normal TSH values fall within a range. If the TSH is low, or in other words, below the lower limit of normal, it may suggest your thyroid is overactive. When your body produces too much thyroid hormone, the brain tries to compensate by making less tsh, and therefore the levels show up low. Read more

How to treat hyperthyroid after bilateral parathyroidectomy. Three weeks ago I had a bilateral parathyroidectomy & no surgical complications. 5 days after surgery I started experiencing rapid pulse rate, sweating, and loss of appetite which continued to w

While: While it is possible that the hyperthyroidism is unrelated to your recent surgery and just happened to start now, it is more likely that you are suffering from a traumatic thyroiditis, inflamation of the thyroid caused by trauma during the surgery. If that is the case the Methimazole won't do any good, as the gland is not overactive, it is just leaking hormone that is normally stored there. In that case the problem should resolve on its own over a few weeks. If the symptoms are a problem, perhaps an increase in the beta blocker dose will help. Read more
