Re: thyroid disorders
Hi pensparidise1. Oral cancers typically do not hurt. It sounds like your immune system is so busy fighting your thyroid problems that it can't address the sores in your mouth. This is not uncommon.
There are a couple of things you can do for the mouth sores. A health food store will have the following:
L-Lysine (1000 mg) twice a day.
"Super Lysine Plus" ointment, that you put on the sores.
Grape Seed Extract (capsules) - 1000 mcg, twice a day.
The Grape Seed Extract is expensive, but it's an excellent antioxidant that can speed the healing. If you decide not to use it, however, DO use the Lysine. It helps fight the herpes virus (most mouth sores are herpes simplex I).
Also, AVOID eating peanuts and chocolate. They limit the body's ability to absorb Lysine.
I hope you can get an Endo appointment soon. It sounds like you need follow-up much sooner than October.
