Can thyroid cancer cause hypothyroid symptoms?

Can thyroid cancer cause hypothyroid symptoms?

Yes and No.: Thyroid Cancer itself does not cause hypothyroidism or symptoms of hypothyroidism. Most people with thyroid cancer will have NO symptoms at all; some may have a lump in the lower neck, trouble swallowing, or hoarseness. Treatment for thyroid cancer (surgery to remove the thyroid) will cause hypothyroidism, but with proper treatment, there should be no symptoms. ...Read more

Hypothyroidism w/ elevated tpo antibodies, low t, adrenal insufficiency... Synthroid (thyroxine) & testosterone hasn't helped. Can I have an autoimmune disease?

Hypothyroidism w/ elevated tpo antibodies, low t, adrenal insufficiency... Synthroid (thyroxine) & testosterone hasn't helped. Can I have an autoimmune disease?

You do have it: Elevated tpo antibodies confirms you have autoimmune thyroiditis. This is often triggered by environmental toxins ;/or infections. You will likely benefit from adding liothyronine to your regimen ; treating adrenal problems with cordyceps, rhodiola etc. I advise consulting with a holistic doc.

What symptoms can high thyroid antibodies cause?

What symptoms can high thyroid antibodies cause?

Autoimmunity: If you have anti-thyroid antibodies, two (2) things may happen, depending on the site of action. If the antibodies stimulate the TSH receptor, this would lead to grave's disease, which implies a hyper functioning gland. In the other scenario, the antibodies may participate in the destruction of the gland, thereby causing hypothyroidism. ...Read more

Normal lab results, hyper thyroid symptoms. (tachycardia/insomnia) is Synthroid (thyroxine) or armour preferred? Possible adrenal issue?

Normal lab results, hyper thyroid symptoms. (tachycardia/insomnia) is Synthroid (thyroxine) or armour preferred?  Possible adrenal issue?

Not for hyper: Adding thyroid hormone replacement to a hyperthyroid gland will exacerbate the problem. If there is underlying adrenal insufficiency, adrenal crisis is more likely to occur in someone with hyperthyroidism. Highly recommend endocrine evaluation if you have these issues. ...Read more

What symptoms of hypothyroidism appear in subclinical hypothyroidism ?

What symptoms of hypothyroidism appear in subclinical hypothyroidism ?

None: True subclinical hypothyroidism should have no symptoms because the free hormone levels are normal. It is only the TSH that is elevated. I think of this as the body is having to work a little harder to produce appropriate amounts of thyroid hormone (thus needing more TSH to meet those needs). ...Read more

Still experiencing severe hypothyroid symptoms on synthroid (thyroxine)?

Probabl: Hashimoto's is something your doctor can say you have or do not have. IT IS AN AUTOIMMUNE DISEASE that can effect thyroid function. People with Hashimoto's are at significant increased risk of other autoimmune diseases. If there is any concern the wrist pain is autoimmune a work-up should be done! Don't panic!
