Can Thyroid Antibodies Cause Swollen Lymph Nodes?

Postby Larue » Thu Feb 20, 2014 11:14 am

I can't find high antibodies mentioning swollen or hard lymph nodes but i did find this..
"Someone with Graves' or Hashimoto's disease may have a diffuse goitre, which is one that has spread throughout the thyroid gland. A goitre can also be a localised lump or nodule, caused by a single thyroid nodule or a cancer (although cancers are rare in the thyroid). And the term multinodular goitre is used when many lumps have spread throughout the gland." http://www.abc.net.au/health/library/sto...
How to lower thyroid antibodies >>>
200mcg of selenium daily.

"The first study from Crete was published in the 2007 Thyroid Journal.
This study reported a 21 % reduction in TPO antibodies after one year of selenomethionine supplements (200 mcg per day).

A second study from Germany from the 2002 Journal of Clinical Endocrinology & Metabolism showed a 40 % reduction in antibody levels after selenium supplementation with 9 of 36 (25%) patients completely normalizing their antibody levels.
A third study done in Turkey by Omer Turker et al. was published in the 2006 Journal of Endocrinology.
They showed a 30% decrease in anti-thyroid antibodies after three months of L-selenomethionine supplementation at 200 mcg per day in women with Hashimotos thyroiditis. The starting average TPO antibodies of 803 and after three months the average was 572.: http://jdach1.typepad.com/natural_thyroi...
Vitamin D and gluten free diet.
"Autoimmune Thyroiditis patients can reduce or eliminate thyroid antibodies by maintaining Vitamin D levels of at least 125nmol/L (as will a Gluten-free diet). Vitamin D deficiency has an adverse effect on hair growth due to its influence on thyroid-adrenal function.Vitamin D levels at least above 125nmol/l (50ng/ml)." http://www.worldtrichologysociety.org/me... http://thyroid.about.com/cs/latestresear...
