With history of graves disease, and now TSH 7 and multinodular goiter, likelyhood of cancer?

With history of graves disease, and now TSH 7 and multinodular goiter, likelyhood of cancer?

Increased likelihood: Yes, likelihood of thyroid CA is increased with chronic thyroid disease like yours. It does not mean though that you already have or definitively will have CA, but you MAY develop it. You must be monitored to have a chance to catch CA early. At this time the only advise I give is to be consistent with your treatments and follow ups as it is recommended by your treating MD. ...Read more

What is the significance of radioactive iodine scan in various throid diseases like myxedema, hashimoto's thyroiditis and graves disease?

What is the significance of radioactive iodine scan in various throid diseases like myxedema, hashimoto's thyroiditis and graves disease?

Hot vs. cold nodule: Iodine uptake by thyroid tissue depends on functioning cells. The most common use for thyroid scan is to assess if a nodule is functional or not. A functional/hot nodule may cause hyperthyroidism but is not likely to be malignant. See this site for more info. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003829.htm. ...Read more

Could you with thyroid disease still get thyroid cancer?

Could you with thyroid disease still get thyroid cancer?

Thyroid disease?: You will need to clarify what you mean by thyroid disease. Most common thyroid problem is hypothyroidism (low hormone levels). You you can still get thyroid cancer. You should remember that thyroid nodules (lumps) are common, especially in women and when we get older. The chance of cancer in a nodule is 5% or less. Try not to worry until an evaluation has been done. ...Read more

Can you have both underlying adrenal insufficiency and thyroid disease, while treated with levoxyl (thyroxine)?

Yes you can: And it will fall under the condition called autoimmune polyglandular syndrome type 2 (aps 2), also called schmidt disease. Risk of autoimmune diabetes is also higher in type 2 ( versus type 1, much rarer here in the us). ...Read more

Is there a connection between those who have papillary thyroid cancer (total thyroidectomy) infertility issues, and early onset of perimenopause ?

Is there a connection between those who have papillary thyroid cancer (total thyroidectomy) infertility issues, and early onset of perimenopause ?

Apples oranges : Unrelated diseases, after total thyroidectomy if thyroid hormone is replaced adequately will not effect fertility , or give early on set of peri- menopause, if any radiation was given to pelvis will result those two problems. ...Read more

How are thyroglobin and tpo antibody tests related to hashimoto's disease and pregnancy?

How are thyroglobin and tpo antibody tests related to hashimoto's disease and pregnancy?

Complex.: Pregnancy will raise thyroglobulin values, necessitating an increase in total thyroid production. If hashimoto's is present, thyroid function must be assessed by free T3 (liothyronine) values and TSH during pregnancy to avoid low thyroid. Many women will develop a goiter during pregnancy, but this is physiologic. But it is imperative to constantly moniter thyroid function of the mother, or the fetus can be hurt. ...Read more

Graves disease (tsi 378) with anti-TPO 59 and tgab 514. Will this eventually lead to hashimoto's?

Graves disease (tsi 378) with anti-TPO 59 and tgab 514. Will this eventually lead to hashimoto's?

No: They are two different disease conditions but your chance of first having first an overactive thyroid followed by an under-active thyroid is highly likely. However it would not be from hashimoto's. ...Read more

Diagnosed with thyroid disease at 9 years presented as hyperthyroidism and then converted to hypothyroidism. Main concern is mood changes, have done lots of research nothing that links mood changes and thyroid disease. Endocrinologist has never compromise

Diagnosed with thyroid disease at 9 years presented as hyperthyroidism and then converted to hypothyroidism. Main concern is mood changes, have done lots of research nothing that links mood changes and thyroid disease. Endocrinologist has never compromise

Mood changes: Mood changes can be directly related to hormonal levels. Very high thyroid levels mimic anxiety/agitation; very low levels mimic depression. Thyroid levels are measured by lab tests (T3, T4). If you are now hypothyroid, your endocrinologist can rx thyroid hormone to take orally to bring your levels to normal. Mood changes are more likely due to other hormone levels, and interactions are complex. ...Read more

Diagnosed with thyroid disease at 9 years presented as hyperthyroidism and then converted to hypothyroidism. Main concern is mood changes, have done lots of research nothing that links mood changes and thyroid disease. Endocrinologist has never compromise

Thyroid and mood: Hyperthyroidism often causes anxiety. Hypothyroidism can lead to several psychiatric problems, most commonly depression. There can also be cognitive (thinking) impairment, and in severe (and rare) cases, psychosis. Correcting the thyroid imbalance usually corrects the changes in mood and thinking. ...Read more

Still confused about estrogen, hormone replacement therapy and cardiovascular disease?

Complex issues: Female hormones increase thromboembolism, deep venous thrombosis--progesteron is blamed, more than estrogen--because at menopause, there is changes in blood coagulation?Increase weight, arteriosclerosis, metabolic syndrome all of this increase risk of cardiovascular disease-- estrogen can be given at low dose for brief periods. ...Read more

Is the risk of thyroid carcinoma increased with diagnosis of hashimoto thyroiditis when multiple thyroid adenomas are present. Tyab 2470?

Is the risk of thyroid carcinoma increased with diagnosis of hashimoto thyroiditis when multiple thyroid adenomas are present. Tyab 2470?

Not if they function: If the adenomas are "cold" or do not function, then they are likely to be malignant. They do not show up on radionuclide scan because they do not function. Otherwise they are unlikely to be malignant. However, since you have many of them, you likely need and should get further workup, like aspiration biopsy, etc., along with treatment for your hashimoto's. ...Read more

After total thyroidectomy with a small papillary carcinoma and no lymph involvement, what is recommended TSH level?  Fam history of bone cancer

low normal: With a history of thyroid cancer, we usually want to see the TSH in the low normal or mildly suppressed range (0.2 to 1.0). The family history of bone cancer is unrelated. ...Read more

Hashimotos disease with normal TSH levels, is that possible?

Definitely: TSH is a very poor marker for tissue hypothyroidism and to assess Hashimoto's. you can even have normal TPO and thyroglobulin antibodies and manifest Hashimoto's. Get your free T4, free T3, (liothyronine) Reverse T3, (liothyronine) and antibodies checked and optimized... refer to https://www.facebook.com/groups/95847031171/ ...Read more
