L Tyrosine For An Overactive Thyroid
No: No. Sorry. L-tyrosine, the amino acid the thyroid clans uses to make thyroid hormone, is not in limiting supply. If your thyroid needs "healing", I'm guessing you mean you're hypothyroid. No treatment we have in medicine will heal hypothyroidism. We treat hypothyroidism with thyroid hormone replacement...cheap, easy, & perfect! To your health!
With hypothyroidism, does l-tyrosine raise or lower thyroid levels if your at a stable level? (on synthroid) I want to use it for mood support. Thanks
L-tyrosine: It should not harm you but before you take it please contact your thyroid doctor. Regarding mood - if the doctor says no do not take it. In that case, if you still have mood issues a consult with a psychologist would be helpful.
If I have depression and I have no thyroid problems, I can take the amino acid L-tyrosine to burn fat and have a better mood?
Its in your food: L-tyrosine is already in much of the food you eat. Watch out for sensational promises by charming supplement salespeople and companies.
Blood Tests: While symptoms of feeling hot, easily tired, shaky, pounding/racing heart, sweating, irritability and eye changes may suggest this condition, blood tests for TSH and thyroid hormone levels are needed for this diagnosis. The TSH level is the most sensitive test for this condition.See 1 more doctor answer
Overactive thyroid: The most common causes are grave's disease and a multinodular goiter. The T4 and/or T3 (liothyronine) will be elevated, and the TSH decreased. You will typically have symptoms of palpitations, rapid pulse, sweating, tremor, and irritability. After all that, you can get very fatigued. This condition can be fixed with either medications, radioactive iodine or surgery. You should probably see an endocrinologist.
Yes, but.. .: If fasting is something someone already did regularly, they could continue doing so with mild hyperthyroidism. However, fasting would be inadvisable if they were losing weight due to the hyperthyroidism. And it would not do anything to help to fix the thyroid disorder. That would require surgery, radioactive iodine treatment, or thyroid blocking medication.See 1 more doctor answer
A complex of symp.: Irritability, emotional lability, anxiety, easy fatigability, excessive sweating, excess heart rate, heat intolerance, excess appetitite, weight loss, hyperdefecation, prominent eyeballs insome people, prominent thyroid in front of neck in some people which may be uniform and non uniform, tremors of hands, menstual irregularities-scanty or absent periods, gynaecomastiaand ed in men, increased urination.
Treat thyroid!: As long as you have high thyroid levels, your body is breaking down tissue, including muscle, faster than you can build it. Depending upon how high the thyroid levels are, exercising may be dangerous. So fix the thyroid, get the thyroid levels normal, then work with weights or other forms of resistance training and make sure you're getting plenty of protein in your diet.
Depends on condition: It depends on what is going on with your thyroid. If there is no reason to suspect hyperthyroidism, a tsh/ft4 is not usually checked. If you have graves disease and are on antithyroid meds (eg methimazole), then you need to be checked every 3-6 months, depending on symptoms. With thyroiditis (different kinds), even more frequent checks may be needed. See your endocrinologist.See 1 more doctor answer
Helpful info: This would be helpful information for the cardiologist to know. Hyperthyroidism can affect heart function in several ways. If you were given a clean bill of heath by the cardiologist, then it is probably ok to wait until your next visit/encounter to let them know. If there is an ongoing work up, then call the office. Good luck and no silly questions here!
Needs to be treated: If your thyroid is overactive, it needs to be treated. Common symptoms include nervousness, tremor, sweating, palpitations, rapid heart rate. You may have an enlarged thyroid. Untreated, these symptoms can be either annoying, or truly dangerous, especially to the heart. Treatment includes medications, possibly surgery or radioactive iodine. You may need to see an endocrinologist.
