What Otc Vitamines Help With Thryoid Problems
Ionized Calcium 4.65, PTH 133, Calcium 10.3, Vitamin D 7, Phosphorus 4.9, recurrent Kidney stones. Thyroid lobe, two parathyroids removed in 2004.
Uncertain: These test results don't add up to a straight forward answer. However, I would be concerned about the possibility of recurrent primary hyperparathyroidism. You should take Vit D to eliminate Vit D deficiency as a cause for high PTH levels. Once this is done, if you still have high PTH with high calcium levels, you have recurrent primary HPTH and will need surgery again.
Would you be able to see a change if your tongue was swollen i'm always scared mine will swell I have thyroid problems GERD and vitamin defficiancy?
Tongue swelling: Not a consequence of problems you stated. Get professional help. See endocrinologist for medication to control thyroid function. See gastroenterologist for rx to control gerd. See your gp or a nutritionist if lab tests show that you truly have a vitamin deficiency. Multiple problems requiring multiple solutions...Get help from the pros...You can't do this by yourself.
I have thyroid issues that wont show up on bloodwork, would it help if i took kelp or other vitamins with iodine in it, my mother had thyroid problems?
Normal Blood Test?: If your blood test for thyoid disease, which includes tsh, free T4 and t3 (liothyronine) is normal, so what is the issue with your thyroid. Taking vitamins and iodine is not going to help.Whatever your issues are, you should discuss with your doctor. Do you have a goiter, nodule? See your doctor with your concerns.See 1 more doctor answer
What are the causes of macrocytic anemia for elderly? If no vitamins defficiency, no RBC breakdown, no thyroid and liver problems & normal wbc
See hematologist: As my previous answer, your dad should see a hematologist for his anemia. Work-up including a bone marrow biopsy should be done- one of the thing we should rule out is possibility of myelodysplastic syndrome. However we are not able to give you more specific answer without seeing all the complete result of previous work-up and examining your father. So, start by asking pmd to refer to hematologist.

Yes, you do: Start by seeing the family doctor to rule out any physical cause for your depression. Your family doctor can refer you to a psychiatrist for a full psychiatric evaluation and to a psychologist for psychotherapy. Please don't postpone this too long. The longer you wait the harder depression can be to treat. Best wishes.
Take in fall/winter&: Whether you have a thyroid or not, everyone in the us (except deep south) gets deficient in vit d in fall & winter unless you take it. In spring & summer you can get d from being in midday sun without sunscreen- if this is not the case take it year-round. Adults need about 5000 iu/day for optimal levels.

None: There are no vitamins that will boost your thyroid, but luckily the thyroid doesn't generally need a boost. If your thyroid is deficient, which can be easily checked by your doctor, take brand name T4 replacement to bring your levels up to normal. Don't get your medical information from friends, tv or the internet.See 1 more doctor answer
No: They're all internet scams. Don't waste your money. Listen to your doctor instead. Don't get your medical information from tv, friends, or the internet.
It doesn't: Vitamin c has no effect on thyroid levels.
Vitamin4 low thyroid: I am not aware of any specific effect on vitamin supplements to low thyroid. If your thyroid is low, which can be confirmed by lab tests, then simple thyroid supplement is the appropriate treatment.
No way to know: Since you never really know what's in those supplements, you can't tell what the side effects would be - plus they're potentially different for every person and can also be reactions with prescription rx. Plus, these supplements won't help your thyroid or any other part of your body. Save your money, see your doctor if you have a thyroid problem. Don't get medical info from tv or the internet.See 1 more doctor answer
There isn't any: As far as i know, there isn't any otc meds/vitamins that can treat/help with overactive thyroid. If you have symptoms such as heat intolerance, eating more yet losing weight, muscle weakness, rapid heart rate, sweating etc...Please see doc because these symptoms suggest significant disease activities. Prolonged hyperactive thyroid can cause long term consequences. Consult doc. Good luck.See 1 more doctor answer
Ask your doctor: This is a very important question to ask your doctor, because different docs have slightly different ideas on this. Ideally, thyroid hormone should be taken on an empty stomach - at least 2 hours after and 1 hour before eating, and at least 1-2 hours away from any source of iron or calcium. That can be hard and cause ppl to miss pills. Some docs are more flexible on these guidelines than others.
In my thyroid test my THS level is 6.56 so does that mean I have tyroid or it can be cured with vitamins?
Hypothyroid, depends: This means you have hypothyroidism. In some cases this may be cured by taking iodine and trace minerals like selenium. Many who are hypothyroid have thyroiditis so get tested; if you have that see the book Thyroiditis Protocol by Isabella Wentz. Also see http://tinyurl.com/md7dwox It would help to work with a doctor knowledgeable about natural medicine, homeopathy and/or Ayurveda.See 1 more doctor answer
Any. MVT choice OTC.: Absent thyroid surgically or by other means like radioactive iodine therapy , is not affected by the choice of multivitamin. Thyroid is ahormone and when in less quantity you need supplements with thyroid preparation like synthroid/levoxyl , most of the sometime and armor thyroid in very few patients when T3 (liothyronine) is less , where as commonly T4 is less. Multivitamin choice doesn't affect thyroid function.
