Need Natural Product To Shrink Hyperthyroid Nodules
Goiter/FNA: The cause of your goiter determines the possible therapies and yes it can be treated medically. Overall size, compression, response to medical therapy, fna biopsy, cancer are important so work with your team of docs. A surgery consult can give you lots of information about the risk/benefit of therapy with surgery. You have choices, good luck. ...Read more
Are naturopaths legitimate. One gave me adrenal gland extract to help with fatigue saying the extract will support my glands.Don't you just digest it?
Probably not helpful: True adrenal gland extract would contain some hormones including epinephrine which might escape digestion and increase your heart rate and blood pressure among other things. But most of it would be digested and have no effect. The "extract" they use is from untested, and unregulated sources and is unlikely to contain anything of value, let alone medical value. Save your money. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
How to treat hypertthyroidism grave disease naturally without need to go through iodine radiation therapy?
No good option: I'm all for natural treatments when good ones are available but, in something as delicate as treating grave's disease, i would recommend the mainstream treaments. Have your doc explain all your options and then make an informed decision. ...Read more
Any natural remedies to help kill any possible cancereous cells remaining after total thyroidectomy if rai is not necessary?
Hmm: Not that i know of. Certainly after thyroidectomy there is a goal of suppressing the TSH in thyroid cancer. There may be natural therapies along this line that don't include what your doctor is prescribing to manage your thyroid levels. If rai is not required for you, than you must have a low risk cancer and i wouldn't worry about other therapies too much. Talk with your doctor. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
My thyroid stimulating hormone shows TSH 16.264. Do I need to increase or decrease the medicine dose?
Can hyperactive thyroid increase your testosterone lvl? And if so will thyroid medication help bring it down?
See answer: Testosterone (T) exists in blood in three forms: 50-60% tightly bound to Sex Hormone Binding Globulin (SHBG) protein (biologically inactive); 40-50% weakly bound to Albumin protein (active); and 3-5% unbound/Free T (active). Hyperthyroidism can cause higher levels of SHBG (inactive T) leading to higher serum levels of Total T, but unchanged or relative decrease in the two active forms of T. ...Read more
I have diffuse mild thyroid enlargment not painful do i need to make thyroid function test?We use iodinated salt,do i need treament how it will shrink
Yes, get lab tests: Hi. Most cases of goiter (abnormal size and/or shape of the thyroid) are painless. Goiter is not infrequently associated with either under activity (hypothyroidism) or overactivity (hyperthyroidism). If the enlargement is a nodule, thyroid cancer may be a possibility (but is statistically less likely than benign). Have TSH and free T4 tested. If it's a nodule, see an endocrinologist for evaluation ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can Synthroid (thyroxine) used to suppress the growth of a non-tox mng (euthyroid) continue to cause hyperthyroidism four months after discontinuing the pills?
Probably not: Your multi-nodular goiter has probably evolved from euthyroid to hyperthyroid (or toxic). Thyroid hormone from tablets could take 6- weeks or so to clear, and if the TSH was very low or undetectable, it could take longer than 6 weeks to completely re-equilibrate after stopping thyroid tablets. But if thyroid hormone levels are still high, or TSH stays low, your thyroid is probably overactive. ...Read more
How do doctors know if thyroid cells(cancerous and non) take up the radioactive iodine after rai treatment for papillary thyroid cancer?
Can methimazole make you permanently hypothyroid? Will labs return to normal once methimazole is stopped/reduced or is replacement hormone needed?
No: The effects of Methimazole itself will not cause hypothyroidismt. It is true that if the underlying cause of the hyperthyroidism has been treated (such as with i131) then continuation of the Methimazole may result in hypothyroidism as the i131 has its effect, but the Methimazole itself is not causing the hypothyroidism. ...Read more

Hypo symptoms but endo will not treat as Free T4 normal&TSH ranges 2.8 to 4.4. Hashimitos confirmed many time by excess TPO/ab. could treating help?
Not deficient: Hashimotos can go through three phases, 1. uncommonly it may cause hyperthyroidism in an early phase of the disease, 2. followed by normal thyroid function and the 3. long phase of hypothyroidism. At this time you do not thyroid deficiency and taking thyroid medication is unlikely to be helpful. ...Read more
Thyroid removal (6 growths, 1 possible cancer) and taking synthroid (thyroxine). Can this help regulate for weight loss and facial hair issues? I can't lose weight.
Is it possible to shrink an 80 gram goiter with the autoimmune protocol diet if Synthroid (thyroxine) has not shrunk it?
Will increasing HGH make me grow taller ? Some articles said that some foods contain HGH will also enhance the testerone lv, is it true?
HGH and growth: Baoanhn, i'm sorry my dear but hgh of any kind probably won't help you at your age. Once your growth plates(google it), fuse your vertical growth is finished and for most young ladies that happens around puberty. Taking hgh now would be a bad idea in my professional opinion. Don't buy into any foods or supplements either that promise growth, a nice pair of heels is a safer bet. Gl. ...Read more
