Today we’re asked answering the question of can hashimoto’s cause hyperthyroidism again this is a lengthy kind of explanation we’re trying to keep these two to smaller chunks and segments that don’t take up part of your day whole part of your day and this is one i’ve been seeing a lot more of it lately and um it’s and it seems to be very confusing in a sense that it used to be you had hypothyroidism or you had graves disease and nobody even really looked for hashimoto’s and then hashimoto’s came in just so i could screw up the whole picture because hashimoto’s is like hypothyroid they call it hashima motors hypo thyroiditis if it’s inflamed or hashimoto’s hypothyroid if it’s not anyway so it’s hypothyroid so you get the hypothyroid stuff and then and then and then when you get the hyper thyroid symptoms especially if you’re the unusual hashimoto’s patient that is thin that has all hyperthyroid symptoms and has no hypothyroid symptoms now it gets confusing so the the first go-to is does this person have graves disease there are different antibodies that you check for that it’s called thyroid stimulating antibodies and and if you have those you have gracies but if you have those you could also have positive antibodies for Hashimoto’s so uh so but graves disease if that one marker comes up you opt for graves disease and then it’s and then that’s a medication to stop the too much hormone from going on or are they radiated or you take it out now there’s this big gray wasteland of of hyperthyroidism i’m here in the diagnosis more and more basically what caught what what what is in the literature that causes hyperthyroidism are a few things okay graves being one of them toxic nodule now so nodules so you get nodules and and then you you test the person and you feel for the nodules and if you got one nodule or if you’ve got multi-nodules you know if you’re if you’re if it’s tender for sure you want to go get a check to see if it’s a cancerous proposition most of the time it’s not thyroid cancer isn’t that common but it happens people to get people get it but these nodules are understanding my understanding so far so far and here’s where i say this i mean you have to understand that we are in the evolution of understanding all of this stuff that’s why i do these things everybody comes in and they think like oh well you should you know you should know all about the whole thing well nobody knows all about the whole thing at this point in time so and toxic nodules are right up there nodules are right up there in the area of nobody knows everything about them right now so so what it appears right now is that you get a nodule whether it’s a toxic one nodule or whether it’s a toxic multi-nodular you know many nodules today what what’s happening mostly is we’re getting them ultrasounded and then they go oh you know that you know okay that’s a nodule let’s let’s do a biopsy on it and then and then we do the biopsy and look at them and like 99 and 9 10 of the time the biopsy comes up with abnormal cells but not cancer and so so what seems to happen most of the time is that the doctors kind of want to hedge their bets that those abnormal cells don’t become cancer and then usually advise you to take it out or radiate it and and so the but the but the reality is is is that at least this is what we think the reality is this point in time is is they’re now moving towards the fact that most nodules and most of those abnormal tissues are secondary to hashimoto’s and then so so so that so they come toxic because they’re you know they’re growing they’re getting inflamed chemicals will set them off food sensitivities we’ll set them off viral infections will set them off which i’m going to get to in a second and so the next thing you got a toxic goiter or a toxic nodule and um and and and you’re and you’re getting hyperthyroid symptoms every time you eat the food or you know when you start getting heart palpitations anxiety you start getting things of that nature um i just mentioned um viral infections so there’s a cross here viral infections of the thyroid themselves can cause hyper symptoms viral infections in and of themselves can cause hyperthyroid symptoms and and and a viral infection in and of itself it can cause certain when you go through certain aspects of the viral cycle can cause that thyroidis type of thing but but viruses can cause an infection in the thyroid and indeed this goes to the big it was it’s all epstein-barr virus thing which it’s not for those of you watching you’ll know epstein-barr virus is one of 39 different um different triggers for the uh for for thyroid and when you get that when you get that when it gets tender when it gets when it gets like that it stays like that and your doctor maybe still isn’t quite up on hashimoto’s you go you get changed you get the heart palpitations you get anxiety the night sweats the you know the the insomnia the the word trembling all of these things and they don’t check you for a thyroid so they don’t realize that you might have hashimoto’s and that could be an infection and a viral infection they pick up the viral infection but they don’t realize that the viral infection has gotten in your thyroid is now perpetuating a hyperthyroid hashimoto’s type of a situation another one with hashimoto’s is over medicating it over medicating the thyroid can push it can can actually push it down into a very very hyper thyroid area obviously like duh i’m over medicating it and so it’ll there’ll be too much thyroid medication in there and um and and mostly that’s a hyper thyroid state i don’t know that’s not exactly what i’m sure the patient or the person who is um asking this question is asking about how excuse me however that is one thing that causes hyperthyroid another one is excuse me and another one is too much ingestion of iodine and i we’ve talked about iodine not being a proper supplementation for the hashimoto’s patient if you are one of those unusual straight hypothyroid patients iodine good if you’re a hashimoto’s patient iodine bad so just in case the person asking the question is suffering from hyperthyroidism as a diagnosis from the doctor all the testing is normal if you have hashimoto’s let’s say you have a multivitamin it’s got iodine in it or if someone or you went to an alternative practitioner who’s still in the 1960s and 70s and 80s and night or whatever early 90s maybe and they’re still going ooh it’s all about iodine and now it’s iodine for the thyroid and it’s not iodine for the thyroid if you have if you have hashimoto’s so if you’re doing that on a regular basis you’re not aware of it and you have hashimoto’s and and and maybe you’re not even aware you have hashimoto’s maybe you haven’t been diagnosed yet and you’re walking around with hyperthyroid state and nobody can figure out why then there’s a good chance that it’s the iodine that you’re ingesting and if that and if that strikes you who are listening this um like wow i take iodine but i’m not hashimoto’s my answer to you is is go check yourself rashimotos those are things that cause hyperthyroidism that are um that are not graves disease and that are either directly related to hashimoto’s or via the iodine and the virus is indirectly related to that to the hyperthyroid diagnosis you – Today we’re answering the question of, can Hashimoto’s cause hyperthyroidism? Again, this is a lengthy kind of explanation, we’re trying to keep these to smaller chunks and segments that don’t take up part of your day, whole part of your day.

And this is what I’ve been seeing a lot more of lately, and it seems to be very confusing, in a sense that it used to be you had hypothyroidism, or you had Graves’ disease. And nobody even really looked for Hashimoto’s.

And then Hashimoto’s came in, just so it could screw up the whole picture. Because Hashimoto’s is like hypothyroid. They call it Hashimoto’s hypothyroiditis, if it’s inflamed, or Hashimoto’s hyperthyroid if it’s not.

Anyway, so it’s hypothyroid. So you get the hypothyroid stuff. And then when you get the hyperthyroid symptoms, especially if you’re the unusual Hashimoto’s patient, that is thin, that has all hyperthyroid symptoms, and there’s no hypothyroid symptoms.

Now it gets confusing. So the first go-to is, does this person have Graves’ disease? There are different antibodies that you check for that is called thyroid stimulating antibodies. And if you have those, you have Graves’ disease.

But if you have those, you could also have positive antibodies for Hashimoto’s. So, but Graves’ disease, if that one marker comes up, you opt for Graves’ disease. And then that’s a medication to stop the too much hormone from going on, or they radiate it or they take it out.

Now, there’s this big gray wasteland of hyperthyroidism, I’m hearing the diagnosis more and more. Basically, what is in the literature that causes hyperthyroidism are a few things. Okay, Graves’ being one of them.

Toxic nodule. Now, so nodules, so you get nodules, and then you test the person, and you feel for the nodules. And if you’ve got one nodule, or if you’ve got multi nodules. If it’s tender, for sure you want to go get a check to see if it’s a cancerous proposition.

Most of the time it’s not. Thyroid cancer isn’t that common, but it happens. People get it. But these nodules, my understanding so far. And here’s where I say this. I mean you have to understand that we are in the evolution of understanding all of this stuff.

That’s why I do these things. Everybody comes in and they think like, “Oh well, you should know all of that, the whole thing.” Nobody knows all about the whole thing at this point in time so.

And toxic nodules are right up there. Nodules are right up there in the area of nobody knows everything about them right now. So what it appears right now is that you get a nodule, whether it’s a toxic one nodule, or whether it’s a toxic multinodular, many nodules.

Today what’s happening mostly is we’re getting them ultrasounded, and then they go, “Oh.” If it’s a nodule, let’s do a biopsy on it. And then we do the biopsy and look at them.

And like 99 and nine tenths percents of the time the biopsy comes up with abnormal cells, but not cancer. And so what seems to happen most of the time is that the doctors kind of want to hedge their bets that those abnormal cells don’t become cancer.

And then usually advise you to take it out or radiate it. And so, but the reality is, is that at least, this is what we think the reality is in this point in time is, is they’re now moving towards the fact that most nodules and most of those abnormal tissues are secondary to Hashimoto’s.

So they become toxic because they’re growing, they’re getting inflamed. Chemicals will set them off. Food sensitivities will set them off. Viral infections will set them off, which I’m going to get to in a second.

And so the next thing you’ve got a toxic goiter, or a toxic nodule. And you’re getting hyperthyroid symptoms. Every time you eat the food, you start getting heart palpitations, anxiety, start getting things of that nature.

I just mentioned viral infections. So there’s a cross here. Viral infections of the thyroid themselves can cause hyper symptoms. Viral infections in and of themselves can cause hyperthyroid symptoms.

And a viral infection in and of itself, it can cause, when you go through certain aspects of the virus cycle can cause that thyroidish type of thing. But viruses can cause an infection in the thyroid indeed.

This goes to it being, it’s all Epstein-Barr virus thing, which it’s not. For those of you who watch me, you’ll know Epstein-Barr virus is one of 39 different triggers for thyroid. And when you get that, when it gets tender, when it gets like that and it stays like that, and your doctor maybe still isn’t quite up on Hashimoto’s.

You go, you get changed, you get the heart palpitations, you get anxiety, the night sweats, the insomnia. Then we’re trembling all of these things. And they don’t check you for a thyroid, so they don’t realize that you may have Hashimoto’s and that could be an infection and a viral infection.

They pick up the viral infection, but they don’t realize that the viral infection has gotten in your thyroid and is now perpetuating a hyperthyroid Hashimoto’s type of a situation. Another one with Hashimoto’s is over-medicating it, over-medicating the thyroid can actually push it down into a very, very hyperthyroid area obviously.

Like duh, I’m over-medicating it. And so there’ll be too much thyroid medication in there. And mostly that’s a hyperthyroid state. I don’t know, that’s not exactly what, or the person who is asking this question is asking about.

Excuse me. However, that is one thing that causes hyperthyroid. And another one is. Excuse me. And another one is too much ingestion of iodine. And I know we’ve talked about iodine not being a proper supplementation for the Hashimoto’s patient.

If you are one of those unusual straight hypothyroid patients, iodine good. If you are a Hashimoto’s patient, iodine bad. So just in case the person asking the question is suffering from hyperthyroidism as a diagnosis from the doctor, all the testing is normal.

If you have Hashimoto’s, let’s say of a multivitamin, it’s got iodine in it. Or you went to an alternative practitioner who’s still in the 1960s and seventies and eighties or whatever, early nineties maybe.

And they’re still going, “Oh, it’s all about iodine. “And now it’s iodine for the thyroid.” It’s not iodine for the thyroid if you have Hashimoto’s. So if you’re doing that on a regular basis, you’re not aware of it.

And you have Hashimoto’s, and maybe you’re not even aware you have Hashimoto’s. Maybe you haven’t been diagnosed yet. And you’re walking around in a hyperthyroid state and nobody can figure out why, then there’s a good chance that it’s the iodine that you’re ingesting.

And if that strikes you who are listening to this. Like, “Wow, I take iodine but I’m not Hashimoto’s.” My answer to you is go check yourself for Hashimoto’s. Those are the things that cause hyperthyroidism that are not Graves’ disease.

And that are either directly related to Hashimoto’s or via the iodine and the viruses indirectly related to that hyperthyroid diagnosis.
