PCOS Lady:
This is a list i made for myself and the doctors i see… It shows the over lapping of symptoms and those specific to the medical conditions…
~ I have to add a separate list of my added symptoms with dates, etc…
~
You may have more or less from the combined symptoms listed for each illness/condition you may have…
~
This is a great “quick” reference for you!
~ It will need tweaked to your needs and printer specs… (lining the columns, etc…)

Hyperthyroidism vs Hypothyroidism Symptoms

Posted in ENDOCTRINE DISORDER, MISDIAGNOSED, RELATED: HORMONES tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 11:30 pm by PCOSLady


HYPERTHYROIDISM vs HYPOTHYROIDISM SYMPTOMS

~
PCOS Lady:
Many PCOS ladies will also have a thyroid issue… I have posted the symptoms and info to help you tell the differences and be better informed…
~
Seeing an endocrinologist is your best choice of doctors. Your doctor may tell you your thyroid was fine after a TSH only. Some people see multiple doctors before being told they have a thyroid problem. You may be misdiagnosed with depression or Diabetes or not diagnosed with anything!
~ Keeping a list of your symptoms will help in getting diagnosed properly…
~ Be sure your doctor addresses all your concerns and symptoms…
~
SYMPTOMS COUNT
!
~
Your symptoms will show you have a thyroid problem. You may be hyperthyroid or hypothyroidism. Absence of periods leans to Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism.
~

~ Mary Shomon, a patient advocate, to be a wonderful resource for thyroid information. She writes books and is the Thyroid Guide writer at About.com…

http://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/h/hyperthyroidism/symptoms.htm – symptom_list
http://www.wrongdiagnosis.com/h/hypothyroidism/symptoms.htm – symptom_list
~
Hyperthyroidism Symptoms:
~
~ Heart palpitations; accelerated heart rate
~ Chest pain
~ A feeling of being too warm all the time
~ Nervousness and trembling
~ Insomnia despite feeling exhausted
~ Breathlessness
~ Diarrhea and GI upset
~ Increased appetite
~ Light or absent menstrual periods, infertility
~ Weight loss
~ Muscle deterioration
~ Warm, moist skin
~ Hair loss
~ Bulging eyes, “spacy” gaze
~ Heightened anxiety, irritability, moodiness or depression
~
Hypothyroidism Symptoms:
~
~ severe fatigue, loss of energy
~ weight gain, difficulty losing weight
~ depression and depressed mood
~ joint and muscle pain, headaches
~ dry skin, brittle nails
~ brittle hair, itchy scalp, hair loss
~ irregular periods, PMS symptoms
~ breast milk formation
~ calcium metabolism difficulties
~ difficulty tolerating cold and lower body temperature
~ constipation
~ sleeping more than average
~ diminished sex drive
~ puffiness in face and extremities
~ hoarseness
~ bruising/clotting problems
~ elevated levels of LDL (the “bad” cholesterol) and heightened risk of heart disease
~ allergies that suddenly appear or get worse
~ persistent cold sores, boils, or breakouts
~ tingling sensation in wrists and hands that mimics carpal tunnel syndrome
~ memory loss, fuzzy thinking, difficulty following conversation or train of thought
~ slowness or slurring of speech
~
Different sources vary the symptoms lists. Keep in mind that, as with many medical disorders, you may only have a few of the symptoms. And just because you don’t have a hallmark symptom of a disorder doesn’t mean you don’t have it.
~
Many times basic and general tests will not reveal certain problems like thyroid disease, prediabetes. You may need to insist on more detailed, targeted tests, even if you feel you have an excellent doctor.
~
SYMPTOMS COUNT!
~
PCOS Lady:
I have PCOS with 28 mild symptoms… Dr Chang in California told me at first i did not have PCOS… I pushed the symptoms i had and quoted his words back at him on points… He agreed i had PCOS!
~
A short quiz found at PCOSupport.org site you can show your doctors… Use it as a general short guide…

Symptoms:

~ anemia – anemia means a reduced number of red blood cells in the blood and is revealed on screening blood work as a reduced number of red blood cells (reduced RBC count and/or reduced hematocrit) In this type of anemia, the red blood cells are often microcytic (meaning the cells are smaller, which shows on bloodwork as a reduced “MCV”) and/or hypo chromic (meaning the cells have low hemoglobin content per cell, which shows on bloodwork as a low “MCHC” or “MCH”) Often the MCV and MCH/MCHC values begin to fall before the actual anemia begins to develop; these changes represent the body’s final attempts to continue producing red blood cells without an adequate supply of iron.

Iodine (the good and dificiencies)

Posted in MINERALS tagged , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , at 11:48 pm by PCOSLady

Iodine
~
Iodine is a chemical element found in trace amounts in humans and is vital to the function of the thyroid gland. The function of iodine in the body is in the synthesis of thyroid hormones: thyronine T4 and triiodothyronine T3, which aid in growth and development.
~
Thyroid hormones stimulate basal rate of metabolism, oxygen consumption and heat production. Most of your body’s organ symptoms are directly or indirectly influenced by thyroid hormones.
~
Iodine Deficiency Symptoms
~
What is iodine deficiency?
Iodine is an element that is needed for the production of thyroid hormone. The body does not make iodine, so it is an essential part of your diet. Iodine is found in various foods.

~ Goiter (enlargement of the thyroid, creating a mass in the neck)
~ Increased sensitivity to cold
~ Menstrual cycle abnormalities
~ Protrusion of the eyes
~ Thickening of the skin
~ Thinning and brittleness of the hair and nails
~ Unintended weight gain
~ Weakness
~
Serious symptoms that might indicate a life-threatening condition,
In some cases, iodine deficiency can be life threatening. Seek immediate medical care (call 911) if you, or someone you are with, have any of these life-threatening symptoms including:
~
~ Being a danger to oneself or others, including threatening, irrational or suicidal behavior
~ Bleeding while pregnant
