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

I have hyperthyroidism and can no longer sing why?

I have hyperthyroidism and can no longer sing why?

Not sure: This is not a typical symptom of hyperthyroidism. However there are 2 theoretical explanations on my mind: 1) your hyperthyroidism may make the muscles that move the vocal cords "shaky" as it does with other muscles. If that is the case, then it will return to normal when the hyper is corrected 2) the thyroid may be enlarged to a point that it affects the nerves that control the voice. ...Read more
