Need Natural Product To Shrink Hyperthyroid Nodules
First blood result hyperthyroid, second time better but not perfect. Ultrasound was clear not enlarged, no nodule. What could cause this fluctuation?
Subacute thyroiditis: Hi. Fluctuations from normal to hyperthyroid falling back through normal to hypothyroid, then usually returning to normal is characteristic of a subacute thyroiditis. The hyper phase is self-limited and is due to leakage of stored hormone, not overproduction (so very different than Graves'). When the stored hormone is depleted, there is a hypo phase until the thyroid recovers and is normal again ...Read more
Had a bout with hyperthyroidism with multi nodules (2 goiters.) I got my blood work back to normal using natural iodine. However, the two endos. I saw disagree on whether they are toxic or not. Is there a test for that?
Nodules: Some thyroid nodules do produce thyroid hormone and can cause hyperthyroidism. A nuclear thyroid scan is used to diagnose toxic thyroid nodules, but I'm not sure whether the taking of iodide therapy would nullify the scan accuracy. Your thyroidologist or endocrinologist can answer this question best. ...Read more

Im 27. Can a nodule on your thyroid cause hypothyroidism, hyperthyroidism or either?
Thank you very much
Yes and no.: Yes. "Functional" nodules producing thyroid hormone independent of the feedback system involving thyroid stimulating hormone from your pituitary, can cause hyperthyroidism. Typically you do not develop hypothyroidism due to a single nodule. A nodule may also represent a benign or cancerous growth. Typically thyroid nodules are biopsied and various imaging helps categorize the type. Follow up w/ MD ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Lowfever steatorrhea anxiety, benign thyroid nodule, p.O.T.S, wtloss, thyroid levels normal right after pregnan. Can it still be hyperthyroid? Dr wont check my levels agian till may?! gi-is ruled out.
Thyroid ok: Reg thyroid, its ok to wait until may. Regarding the steatorrhea, possible causes can be lack of bile acids (due to liver damage, hypolipidemic drugs, or having had the gallbladder removed, defects in pancreatic enzymes, and defective mucosal cells due to inflammatory bowel disease.The absence of bile acids will cause the feces to turn gray or pale.

I want to know if botox which I had in my neck can cause complications such as hyperthyroid and a thyroid nodular cyst?
Hyperthyroidism for 5 years. Had a sonar done and a nodule 13mm in size was found. Extreme palpitaions, tired, depressed. Is this normal?
Hyperthy & nodule: Hi. No, it is not "normal" to be hyperthyroid and have a nodule. If you've had it for 5 years, is someone treating it? Is the cause of the hyperthyroidism known (i.e., Graves' vs. toxic adenoma/s)? If it's Graves', the nodule needs a needle biopsy to see if it's cancer. If it's a toxic adenoma, a thyroid scan will tell if the nodule is the cause of the hyperthy (those nodules aren't cancerous). ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

Possible your dose is too high. ...Read more
