Hyperthyroid Loss Sense Of Taste
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?
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

My sister has hyperthyroidism, but without goiter and no eye problem (no eye protrusion or vision loss), what can be the possible causes?
That's what: Hyperthyroidism is. A certain kind of hyperthyroidism, known as graves' disease, is usually associated with goiter and can have eye problems -- but good old, garden variety hyperthyroidism is just an overactive thyroid. We don't know the cause, it just occurs in a certain percentage of people. ...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

Can I have hyperthyroidism even if tests have been negative? Symptoms of rapid weight loss, hair loss, fatigue and dry circular skin patches.
Unlkikely!: If your TSH is normal, and your free T4 and T3 (liothyronine) are normal, it would be quite (no extremely) unlikely that you are hyperthyroid. Illness itself can cause hair and weight loss. I suspect you need an alternate diagnosis. Since I do not know your age, it is hard to make suggestive diagnoses. ...Read more
Had thyroid scan, came back overactive, have normal blood test. Does hyperthyroidism mean cancer? Will this stop me from having weight loss surgery
Hyperthyroidism: If a radioactive iodine scan was performed, they probably calculated a 24 hr uptake which was likely high since you are saying that "the thyroid scan came back overactive". Hyperthyroidism does not mean cancer. Thyroid cancer usually presents as a cold spot (not overactive) on thyroid scan. If you are hyperthyroid, this condition would actually help you lose weight. ...Read more

I: I am not aware of a direct correlation between hyperthyroidism and blood in stool in humans. However, people with hyperthyroidism may have loose or liquid stools as well as more frequent bowel movements. If this was the case, theoretically if could cause irritation which could lead to some bleeding. With that said, you can not assume that is the case. The reason for what appears to be blood mixed in with your stool needs to be evaluated. I recommend that you discuss this with your doctor as this is likely a separate issue. I hope that this is helpful. ...Read more

If you have underlying anxiety, that can cause your tremors and insomnia. Find a doctor you are comfortable with and make an appt. ...Read more
