If Thyroid Is Removed What Happens With Hashimotos
Is there any cure if your thyroid levels are normal but u have extremely high thyroid peroxidase and a goiter with nodules?
No cure: However, you have hashimoto's and may become hypothyroid in the future. Have yearly check of the TSH or more frequently if you plan to get pregnant! TSH levels should be under 2.5 - 3.5 non pregnant. "normal" tshs of 4 or 5 are not normal. ...Read more
Is it possible for 25 mcg of levothyroxine to normalize my hypo thyroid (hashimoto) right away or is it possible that it normalized itself?
Depends on the TSH: Your dose of levothyroxine is tiny, just about the lowest. When you have low thyroid function your TSH is high, above 4. Taking the levo lowers it to normal by adding more thyroid hormone to your blood. So if your TSH is now less than 4, then you are O.K. On the other hand, if you require only 25 mcg, you probably have a thyroid that is just abouit normal and do not need any thyroid medication. ...Read moreSee 3 more doctor answers
Worth checking: If the size of your thyroid is causing you symptoms of compression (pressure, pain, difficulty breathing or swallowing), then i would recommend that you have your thyroid removed. If any nodule is > 1cm then it should be biopsied. The complex cyst should be biopsied if there is any solid component. It may also be drained under ultrasound (us). Otherwise, just observe with yearly us. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
What could happen if a nontoxic goiter is left untreated? Is it always something that needs treated? I had blood taken and my thyroid levels are fine
It might eventually: get larger!.....if thyroid hormone producing tissue is replaced by fibrous tissue or in the case of Hashimoto's disease (one cause of non toxic goiter) with inflammatory tissue. If your goiter has multiiple nodules (NTMNG) there is a small but definite chance of thyroid cancer developing!! In short I would recommend treatment! Hope this helps! Dr Z ...Read more

Have hashimotos thyroid always bit swollen. Is thyroid pain common with hashis I have periods of flare ups like that. US-heterogenous thyroid. biopsy?
Not unusual: Pain with thyroiditis is not common but not unusual. Thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease that benefits from a holistic approach. A gluten-free diet is among the essential components for healing. See https://draxe.com/hashimotos-disease/ and http://tinyurl.com/h8hcraw and the book The Autoimmune Solution by Amy Myers MD. It would be ideal to work with a holistic/integrative doctor. ...Read more

Is it necessary to treat mild subclinical hyperthyroid (negative antibody, normal t3/t4 TSH 0.461) before having a lobectomy for follicular nodule?
Normal: A TSH of 0.46 is normal is most labs. It appears that you are going to surgery for a "follicular nodule". You should be aware that there is a newer pathology test(afirma by veracyte) that helps to differentiate which patients with follicular neoplasms need to go to surgery vs observation. You might want to consider this before surgery. ...Read more
Why does my heart race after eating gluten. My thyroid is enlarged with 2 small nodules. What's causing this and can it be cured?
Check thyroid: Celiac disease, or gluten enteropathy, generally involves GI symptoms, sometimes bone problems and other symptoms, but your symptoms of palpitations by themselves do not sound like a gluten problem. Are you hyperthyroid? Perhaps you have hashimotos thyroiditis or graves disease. You may want to see an endocrinologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
After radioiodine ablation in 2008, and now on Synthroid (thyroxine) for hypothyroidism, is it correct to assume that my thyroid is completely non-functioning?
It's not "dead": There is still thyroid tissue present, and it may or may not be able to be palpated. The thyroid doesn't just vanish because of radioiodine. ...Read more
