Question

Hello!
I just had a question about having hypo. Does the thyroid ever just quit completely when you have hashi-hypo? If it does is it inevitable that you have to have it taken out?

Re: Question

I don't think anything is inevitable 100%, all cases are different. Most spend years fluctuating with hashi;s and the surgeon I used said that really when your thyroid actually "dies" out you are advanced in age. I sputters and dies and sputters and dies for years and years and sometimes go into remission for time.

He also told me that just with a diagnosis of hashi's they don't take them out, only if you have totaly lymphocyte infiltration and complex nodules that can't be identified.

Re: Question

Thanks for your response Karen,
It it most likely dies out when in advanced age, isn't it more difficult for recovery? I am guessing when it dies out, the hypo symptoms return even when medicated. Ugh, I don't to think about it.
