Other beverages sometimes made from wheat, rye, and barley include vodka, whiskey, gin and bourbon. The allergy to alcohol or to coke even can be due to preservatives, coloring agents, yeast used for brewing, sulfites, gluten products in the alcohol or even to grapes and other bases. You need to go for an allergy testing for the ingredients of the beverage you take to know what you are allergic to. It is difficult to comment beyond this at this stage.
Has anybody had trouble handling their alcohol since having TT and RAI? I held a function the other night and had a 'few' wines during a six hour period interspersed with soda water (club soda?) I had less than I would have had before my surgery (I am dieting) but later on that night I was violently ill and the next day it was like I was thrown back into hypo hell - cold, shaky, dizzy and absolutely exhausted. I know I did not have toooooo many because I consciously kept count.
The rash may be accompanied by low-grade headache, fever, nausea and fatigue and itching. Topical and oral steroids are needed. Water, sweat, and soap may cause irritation and should be avoided in the disease. Topical zinc oxide and calamine lotion are useful for pruritus. It is very difficult to precisely confirm a diagnosis without examination and investigations and the answer is based on the medical information provided. For exact diagnosis, you are requested to consult your doctor.
I can tell you that my doctor said no alcohol period and to even change my mouthwash because it had alcohol in it.. Also they wanted to know how long ago I had a drink because if it was in the past 6 months they weren't going to give me the treatment..
I agree with Craniac. The thyroid determines how alcohol is metabolized. I'm hypo and I find that one drink doesn't bother me but if I drink more than a few in a week's time I get some trouble. I'm over emotional.
All things in moderation. And be sure to separate food and drink (besides water) from your thyroid dosage by at least 30-60 minutes.
There are 3 main thyroid antibody tests and if the right ones weren't done, the proper disease will not be detected. To confirm or rule out Graves Disease, you must be tested for Thyroid Stimulating Immunoglobulin (TSI). It's also possible that you have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and are going through a hyper phase. You should ask to get tested for Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies (TPOab) and Thyroglobulin Antibodies (TGab). These will confirm/rule out Hashimoto's.
now it is unstable and I am being tested already for 6 month every month and every month I am being put on different levels of Thyroid medication, I finnaly went to a Endocronologist and she ordered a Ultra sound and again a blood level in about a month to get to the root of the problem. I also have all of a sudden very bad Dry itchi scalp and almost like craddle cap on my head.

Alcohol would beat the crap out of me and I could not recover for days. I know make my own Kombucha which has little alcohol, so I drink alot of that.
Don't get a hangover just a very weird feeling. Headache and body aches. I had my thyroid remove due to cancer and now take synthroid daily. The dosage as changed many times. Now I'm at 125m... who knows what's next. I'm guessing I will never be the same. Oh well life goes on and we have to make the best of it!!! Glad to hear that other people have the same problems.
Going back to your response to the gentleman who asked about alterations in alcohol metabolism after partial or total thyroidectomy, is it true that if you are suffering from hypothyroidism that it is possible that alcohol metabolism could be slowed/ altered? This discussion is related to <a href="/posts/Thyroid-Cancer-Nodules--Hyperthyroidism/Alcohol-Consumption/show/1563270">Alcohol Consumption</a>.
Sorry to be so abrupt -- but I am totally against mixing alcohol with meds and even though I would enjoy an occasional cocktail or beer -- I have not had a drink in over 25 years. Never had a drinking problem, and never will. (I do have other vices, so I'm not trying to be a goody-two-shoes here.
) with just recorded pvcs/pacs-some big and trig. my question is this.many people say that alcohol brings them on.ive noticed if i have a couple beers when they get real bad i dont feel them as much.i am only on thyroid meds, nothing else.is it safe for me to have a drink or two at night just to calm myself down or am i doing damage to my heart?sometimes they get so unbearable i just cant help it! also do all those tests need to be redone every couple years, or should i hold off?
It could be the sulfites in the wine. This is well known to cause migraine headaches. Does it matter if it is red or white wine? Or aged in Oak? Oak gives the wine tannins which can also contribute to migraines. Vodka is the "cleanest" of all alcohol. It has no additives and is known to not give quite the same hangover effect as other alcohols.
If this only happens when consuming sweets and alcohol and you don't consume these very often I don't think you have a problem. Wanting to fall asleep during running or speed walking sounds like boredom to me. I usually get a natural high. If your steam runs out fast sounds like you might be over doing it a bit. However if you want to take the time and money then I suggest the following: ketoacidosis is severe ketosis causing the pH of the blood to drop below 7.
My question is this I have a history of alcohol abuse, it started about 12 years ago when I had my child, I met a guy (who I spent 10 years with), could never get a babysitter so he started bringing beer into the house (only ever drank when I went out prior to this) after a year we were drinking a full bottle of scotch together every night,I had a very highly paid job god only knows how I kept it without being dicovered, after 10 years I left him tried to make a new start abroad it went wrong I
I would not wait any longer to get to a doctor and get tested for Free T3 and Free T4, along with TSH they always test, and get started on replacement thyroid medication. With almost total thyroid removal, I'm amazed that you have been able to somehow get by without meds.
I've had RAI and am now Hypo. Anyone have any idea from my original question?
if you search 'alcohol' in the 'search this community' box up and to the right of your screen, you'll find comments by other posters here about not tolerating alcohol well or at all. ILADS, the main LLMD group, posts treatment guidelines that prohibit alcohol consumption for the reason you list. Try not drinking for a month and see if the episodes stop.
i have been on xanax 21 years and take 4mgs a day..im hooked cant get off....and all aliong it was my thyroid and hormones.get off the xanax.
I went to the doctor this week and explained my problem. He did an ultrasound of my liver, pancreas, kidneys and thyroid and everything looked fine (nothing was inflamed or diseased). He then did some bloodwork to test for liver disease or anything else out of the ordinary and everything came back normal. My white blood cell count was slightly low but that didn't seem to bother him. Does anyone have any other suggestions? I don't know what to try next but I have to get to the bottom of this.
Hi Thyroid and alcohol do not go you get drunk quicker because pulse rate goes up I only have a couple of drinks. My friend whose got thyroid says she wouldn't drink at all but I think a couple does no harm.
I have thyroid nodules, can i still have a thyroid problem even if blood tsts are normal rnge? I show signs of hypothyroid.. i also suffer from cardioinhibitory and vasodepressor.
In Decemeber 1997 I was finally diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism (graves Dis) I got the radioactive iodine on Dec. 24th and my levels crashed around Feb. I soon got the PVC's again. I am now hypo thyroid and they are trying to regulate my levels. I wore a heart monitor 2 weeks ago and they say I am having frequent PVC's. Singles & doubles. Could it be from the thyroid problem and being low on thyroid?
I was put on .5mg of xanax and it worked wonders but am out and my doctor is so overbooked I can't get in and am afraid to find a new doctor and tell them "I need xanax". The bottle of xanax lasted me 3 months and my doctor wont call in a script after that long. I have a ton of sample bottles of Lexipro but I suck at taking 1 a day and after a few days I forget or just stop taking them since nothing changes, but I know it takes weeks.
