Which Should I Choose For Thyroid Treatment?

Postby Peregrine » Thu Sep 21, 2017 6:41 pm

Okay , I'm a 15 year old girl and about a year ago I began feeling very tired and just in a bad mood. I didn't really think too much about it but then I began to have VERY intense stomach aches and if I ate anything 10 minutes after eating I would have to go to the bathroom, sometimes I would just be in agony from the pain in my stomach. I got a appointment with my regular doctor and he diagnosed me with IBS (Irritable bowl Syndrome). He gave me medicine but it didn't help I tried dealing with it I missed a lot of school because of it and I began losing weight I went to the ER and had test done and they didn't ever tell me what was wrong they didn't know while I was in the ER they noticed my heart rate was very very high and almost admitted me but I just stayed in the ER over night and when they got my rate to go 120 they sent me home. My stomach pains randomly started to disappear but then I was having throat pain so I went to the doctors to get checked out when the doctor was feeling my neck she noticed that where my thyroid gland was it was very enlarged, she sent me over to the head and neck doctor and he took a look and recommend me to a endocrinologist. So me and my parents drove to the closet children endocrinologist to me which is about an hour away. I had blood tests done and she found out I had hyperthyroidism in January of this year 2011. She told me she thought it was caused by Graves' disease so I was put on medication trying to normalize my thyroid levels. The enlargement the first doctor felt was thought to be a goiter. I was taking my medication and my thyroid levels improved a little but not normalized during my summer vacation my neck began to hurt and I went to the ER the endocrinologist that was on call came in to check me out and he told me he thought I had hashimoto thyroiditis. They just sent me home and said nothing more about that. My endocrinologist just last week put in a order for me to get a thyroid scan to see what was causing my hyperthyroidism. I got the scan done and what is causing it is a nodule that is on my thyroid gland and it's making it produce to much of the hormones. I was concerned that it could be cancerous because cancer runs in my family my mother and grandmothers and there mothers all have had cancer but the endocrinologist said in most causes the nodules are not cancerous. They gave me two options to get ride of it radioactive iodine therapy or surgery. My uncle got his thyroid gland out as a kid. I have no idea what one I should get, i'm really hesitant to get the radioactive treatment because I don't want that messing up my body or having any future problems. The surgery option also just scares me because it is surgery. I'm only 15 and I don't know what the best option would be for me.

Thyroid hormone is the thanks to take care of the priority. besides the indisputable fact that, there are some all organic drugs. Myself, i'm on one in all them. i'm on Armour thyroid. that's the oldest thyroid med accessible and it truly works quite nicely. I surely have fantastically a lot each and every hypothyroid symptom relieved because of Armour. i am going to submit information about it below. some will allow you to recognize to take iodine, it really is nice if you're iodine poor. if you're actually not, you are able to make the hypothyroidism worse. practice your self about being hypothyroid. that's the purely thanks to get the perfect care. sturdy success!

If Hashi's is suspected, DO NOT LET THEM DO ANY OF THE 3 HYPer TREATMENTS UNTIL THEY FIND OUT!!!!! HypER from Hashi's is MUCH different than plain HypER. HypER from Hashi's is just a TEMPORARY hypER state....With Hashi's the body eventually goes hypO & stays. Going on Synthroid can cause the body to let the drug take over in regulating the amt of thyroid hormone that your body is producing, thus keeping you from going to the hypER cycle anymore.

ALL THREE POSSBLE TREATMENTS FOR HYPER/GRAVES, IS AGAINST YOU IF IT IS HASHI'S w/ A TEMPORARY hypER CYCLE INSTEAD!!!

READ THIS CAREFULLY:

You need testing for thyroid ANTIBODIES as well as TSH.
TSH ?norm? should be .3 ? 3 (w/ most feeling best at < 2) but, for diagnosis, would not matter if ANTIBODIES are present. Indicative of Hashimoto?s Autoimmune Thyroiditis (CYCLES BETWEEN HYPER & HYPO AT START)?main cause of HypOthyroid & is worse (...OR Graves Disease - HypERthyroid).


THERE ARE DIFFERENT ANTIBODIES ACCORDING TO WHETHER Hashis or Graves.

WARNING: Doctors seem not to want to find/treat thyroid disease.
You may have to go to more than one doctor before you get the right tests, interpretation, and treatment.
Best wishes.
