Re: Thyroid supressing pituitary gland 'completely'
If there was any danger to your Mom then her doctor can call the specialist and get her in earlier. Did they stop the Synthroid since her lab results came back showing her hyper?
I just thought of some other possibilities....
Has your Mom taken any supplement that has iodine in it recently? (thyroid hormone is made from iodine atoms) Has she had any medical test done with contrast dye that contains iodine? Seaweed/kelp is very high in iodine and could mess up a thyroid too.
Dx Graves 4/99, tx w/Tapazole & Atenolol - Remission 7/03; Relapse 1/06, back on Tapazole, remission & off meds again 11/06.
