What can you do about hyperthyroidism-induced hair loss? Are skin issues common with Hashimoto’s? Does Graves’ disease affect your teeth?

Today, I’m back with another Q&A episode, answering multiple questions submitted by the Save My Thyroid community. While I can’t get to everyone’s questions every time, I love creating these for you, and I’ll do similar episodes every couple of months. Please share your questions with me by emailing info@naturalendocrinesolutions.com, and I'll include the most relevant ones in upcoming episodes.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

Q1: What can be used to reduce goiter in hyperthyroidism?

Q2: I have been on thyroid medication for 20-plus years, and I've been I've never been told I had Hashimoto's. I have hypothyroidism unspecified. Does hypothyroidism ever not require lifelong medication?

Q3: Do people with Graves’ disease suffer total hair loss or is it super common? Is there a way to avoid it or fix it?

Q4: Why does hypothyroidism cause hair thinning or hair loss? What could be done to help besides taking thyroid meds?

Q5: Why does my hair grow so much slower after a single bout of hyperthyroidism?

Q6: I have two small nodules on one side of my thyroid. Can nodules grow even with proper diet?

Q7: I have had Graves’ disease for about 13 years.  Is it possible to shrink nodules and a goiter?

Q8: Can cold thyroid nodules be treated without an operation?

Q9: My hands itch and scratching them create sores. My back gets rashes and itches and my arms and knees as well. The endocrinologist says I have Hashimoto's for about 30 years.  I'm just not sure about the skin issues; is that actually Hashimoto's?

Q10: What can I do to stop the sweating? I have a challenge here in Africa. It's always very hot. If I'm exposed to a bit of heat I sweat a lot and sometimes I have problems breathing properly.

Q11: What can you do to get rid of the dry skin that comes with Graves’ disease?

Q12: I still keep needing to up my thyroid medication. I don't seem to stabilize and I don't know why. Why is it not working even though I follow the advice and wait, taking it on an empty stomach?

Q13: Does Graves’ disease affect your teeth?

Q14: How can a person test positive for Graves’ and Hashimoto's at the same time? Apparently that is me, and I'm trying to use natural remedies but I don't know which direction to go.

Q15: How do you know if your thyroid is operating in a good range? How important are serum values versus symptoms? And if symptoms how do you assess them?

Q16: What do you see as the most consistent issue that is at the root cause for Hashimoto's and low thyroid with low T3 and T4?

Q17: Can taking iodine long term help to regulate the thyroid?

Q18: How is hypothyroidism related to osteoporosis, scoliosis, GERD, food intolerances, Barrett's esophagus, chronic kidney disease, and the aging process all of which happened to me in my 70s?


As always, I hope you find this episode valuable, and I look forward to catching you in the next episode!
