Hypothyroidism Connection Ibs
I'm 43 years old, semi healthy I have hypothyroidism and ibs. This past year I have had tons of trouble remembering names of things. What could it be?
I have IBS and am often constipated. But I also have hypothyroidism and know that fiber can interfere with my medication I take for it. What do I do?
Fiber conflict: Fiber, of both soluble & insoluble variety, provides health benefits--accelerates how quickly food transits through the gut; adds bulk to stool & improves bowel regularity; fills you up. Too much fiber can make you gassy, increase stool volume, interfere with drug metabolism. Ask your doc about appropriate timing of fiber and Rx intake. The good news--the pipeline for IBS-C drugs is exciting. ...Read more
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

Hypothyroidism: Hi, you may have subclinical hypothyroidism, and/ or hashimoto's thyroiditis.

Diagnosed with hypothyroidism & IBS. Sick for 8 years Constant tremors of hands jaw & legs Hard to breathe. Dry skin. Constantly dizzy and weak. Help?
See a doctor: Nicole, if you have been sick for 8 years it is unlikely someone on a free advice site is going to be able to help much! It certainly sounds as if you need to have your thyroid checked again, assuming you are on replacement, and possibly have your adrenals and other hormones and chemistries checked. Certainly you should stay well hydrated. But get an exam please. Good luck to you! ...Read more
Not usually: There is a rare condition called autoimmune polyendocrine syndrome, type 1 in which both hypothyroidism and a mild immunodeficiency (susceptibility to yeast infections, including oral thrush) can occur together. One episode of thrush would not raise suspicion for this necessarily, but if you have had multiple episodes, you should discuss this with your doctor. ...Read more

I have hypothyroidism, sono showed normal size, no nodules, but heterogeneous, hypervascular. Is there a connection to chronic lymph node infections?
Hashimoto's: The most common cause for hyothyroidism in your age group is hashimoto's thyroiditis. This is an autoimmune disease causing chronic inflammation of the thyroid. The thyroid ultrasound typically shows heterogeneous texture and hypervascularity. Enlarged lymph nodes near the thyroid are also commonly enlarged. However, it does not cause a tendency to more infections. ...Read more
My mom, dad and grandma (dad's side) all have hypothyroidism. They all got it when they were about 50 years old. I had hyperthyroidism. Any connection?
Yes: A common cause for hypothyroidism is Hashimoto's thyroiditis. This is an autoimmune disorder that destroys the function of the thyroid causing hypothyroidism.
