1. Thyroid Autoimmunity and Hives-Rash
Severe hives/rash, also known as "chronic uticaria", can be a signal indicating development of autoimmune thyroid disease. Published medical research concludes the need to blood-test patients with the onset of uticaria, for thyroid function and antibodies that cause thyroid disease.
2. Anxiety Attacks in Hashimotos Thyroiditis Patients
The relationship between hypothyroidism and anxiety symptoms is well established in medical research conclusions. Severe and chronic anxiety is not exclusive to hyperthyroid patients but also affects many that are hypothyroid.
3. Hyperparathyroidism and Hypothyroidism
Hyperparathyroid symptoms and Hypothyroid symtoms mimic each other. While some doctors do not believe in the relationship of the parathyroid and the thyroid glands other than their close proximity, other physicians draw a link to the calcium regulation function of both glands.
4. Artificial Sweeteners
Artificial sweeteners such as aspartame and sucralose are particularly harmful to anyone with a thyroid disorder and may actually initiate and exacerbate thyroid disorders.
5. Hypothyroidism and Fatty Liver Disease
Thyroid patients and those with other metabolic related diseases, are at increased risk for developing other health disorders affecting the metabolism of the body. Non-Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease (NAFLD) is one of those disorders. Read about signs/symptoms, tests and treatment.
6. Thyroid Disease and Peripheral Neuropathy
Peripheral Neuropathy (PN) is a condition of pain and other unpleasant sensations (e.g. burning and tingling), usually affecting small fiber sensory nerves in the body. The cause of PN can include diabetes and thyroid disease but it can also originate from neurological disorders in the brain.
7. Hypothyroid and Hyperthyroid Simultaneously
Some patients with autoimmune hypothyroidism experience spells of hyperthyroidism (Hashitoxicosis). When this happens, their doctor should test them for "TSI antibodies", which occur with Grave's Disease. If the antibodies are present, they are experience this transient hyperthyroid condition.
8. Permanent versus Temporary Thyroiditis
What is the difference between Hashimoto's thyroiditis and temporary/transient thyroiditis? The differences -- Hashimoto's is an autoimmune disease causing destruction of the thyroid (lifelong hypothyroidism), while temporary thyroiditis resolves and does not require lifelong treatment.
9. Adrenal Fatigue can Hinder Hypothyroid Treatment
Many hypothyroid patients have fatigued adrenals as a result of their body's struggle with thyroid disease and related inflammation. In some cases they see adrenal symptoms increase severely, once they begin thyroid hormone replacement therapy. Why does this happen and how can it be prevented?
10. Hashimoto’s Thyroiditis and Rheumatic Symptoms
Patients with Hashimoto's Autoimmune Hypothyroidism, often list joint and muscle aches as one of their major symptoms. Some patients do not see complete relief of these symptoms with thyroid hormone replacement therapy.
