Doctor insights on:
What Happens After Thyroid Is Removed If I Have Hashimotos
?: No established direct effect, but such deleterious drug isn't expected to be of any benefit in any condition, including psychiatric illness claimed by some to be of value, do yourself, or the person you're asking on his/her behalf, a favor, and get treated right in a detox program, good luck
Hashimoto thyroidism, HGH bld pressure vitamin d sufficient, excess weight gain, feel tired all the time, would amphetamine boost my energy?
Yes, but: It would be potentially dangerous and possibly illegal depending upon the source of the amphetamines. Why put something in your body that is harmful and can potentially kill you? Also get off the armour thyroid, which is ground up pig tissue and have your doctor put you on brand name T4 replacement, which is better and safer.
I have hashimoto thyroidism, pituitary tumor, seizures, lesion on my brain and had multiple concussions. My calves are hurting bad what could this be?
Wow- a lot!: This can either be as simple as muscular if you have had any changes in excercise or even trauma (fall, seizure). Or it can be neurological, neuropathic pain due to your comorbidities or even the brain lesion. Or vascular such as a DVT or blood clot in your veins. I would recommend that you get evaluated at your earliest convenience.
Hashimotos: The anti-tpo antibodies may still be there, but there is nothing for them to do, absent thyroid. Hashi is an autoimmune disease, and such people are susceptible to other autoimmune diseases, so the overall immune phenomena does not completely go away. Hashi and graves can overlap, and eye disease of graves can occur later, but rarely, so don't worry about it.
?: The auto immune problem can still be present even if the target organ gone.
I have pain and swelling in my left occipital node for over a week now. I suffer from Hashimoto's Disease and had my thyroid removed a couple years.
Not related to thyro: Thi is not related to the Hashimotos. There can be a variety of reasons for this lymph node swelling. It could be a local infection or other reasons. You need to discuss this with your physician.
What are some of the side affects of hashimoto disease. I have had the right side of my thyroid removed and take synthroid (thyroxine).
No: No "side effects" or symptoms of hashimoto's are proven outside the possible thyroid enlargement and symptoms of underactive thyroid, some of which dr. Fowler has listed. Once your thyroid levels are normal on your supplement (synthroid) in your case, you should have no symptoms of the hashimotos. By the way, we use the term "side effects" for undesired effects of a drug. Symptoms are what we experience from an illness or disease. See the links below to learn more.See 1 more doctor answer
Direct and indirect: Hashimoto's disease is a common cause of underactive thyroid. Complications would include the often experienced symptoms & signs, such as low body temperature, weight gain or inability to lose weight, dry brittle nails and hair, constipation, depression, elevated lipids, fatigue, and lethargy. Since Hashimoto's is an auto-immune disorder, other auto-immune conditions may co-exist in same patient.
Will removing thyroid solve or help hashimotos? Already on thyroid meds and understand that would have to continue.
Thyroidectomy Worse: Thyroidectomy would worsen your problem. Get Broda Barnes' book, Hypothyroidism, the Unsuspected Illness. You should be on Armour Thyroid, or West-Throid--not synthroid (thyroxine). You also should be on herbal anti-inflammatory substances like Boswella and Turmeric. Adjust your dose of thyroid based on your heart rate and temperature--and how you feel. The blood test is a waste of blood.
Hashimotos thyroid: Would recommend discussing your options best for you with a thyroid specialist or endocronologist.
Could be: It is difficult to reliably sonographically differentiate hashimoto thyroiditis from other thyroid pathology. Ultrasound features can be variable depending of the severity and phase of disease. A diffusely enlarged thyroid gland with a heterogeneous echotexture is a common sonographic presentation.
Since sjogrens can damage the thyroid would tpo be produced because of sjogrens and cause hashimotos, or is hashi always a separate disease?
Separate diseases: There is a significant co-existence of these two diseases but they are separate diseases. Both are auytoimmune in nature but the presence of sjogren's disease does not cause the development of thyroid antibodies nor the development of hashimoto's.
Any: Enjoy any food you like! There are no specific food restrictions for your condition.
Endo has got my thyroid level to just within the correct range, what else can be done for a hashimotos patient that still has all the symptoms?
Desiccated thyroid: Check out http://jcem. Endojournals. Org/content/98/5/1982.Abstract in which a recent study suggested that some patients feel better on dessicated thyroid extract. This may be heresy so point out study to your doc. It doesn't mean you have to stay on it forever but it might be worth a try. One other issue: which end of normal did you just reach? Many feel better when TSH 1-2 (not 4.49).See 1 more doctor answer
