Hi I have bad ibs.I would take colpermin everyday but I'm trying to conceive is it safe to take. I also have hypothyroidism any tips for concieving.
Technically, dunno: BUT colpermin is a simple extract of peppermint oil. Doesn't mean it doesn't work; I suspect it is quite helpful in a number of people as just a soothing agent. As a food, it's never going to be tested for safety in pregnancy since it is not going to have restrictions as if it were a drug and likely safe. The thyroid should be fine if the level is regulated. DOES NEED adjustment during pregnancy. ...Read more

Is there any connection b/w an adult (in 30s) growing in height and hypothyroidism? Can the condition or any of the meds used for it cause growth?
No connection: Humans don't grow after they reach maturity/adulthood. Some can increase their height a bit by improving posture and spine position/mechanics. Also, an abnormality of growth hormone might result in growth, but not just in height...lips, etc, resulting in acromegaly. Hypothyroidism or it's treatments should not be related. This should be evaluated by your endocrinologist/thyroid doctor. Good luck! ...Read more
