264121 tn?1313033056 Hi There, I just wanted to see from folks out there how many people with MGUS or with a myeloproliferative disorder of some type have family members with autoimmune disease. Like RA, scleroderma, etc.
Avatar f tn I have Hashi's, Ulcerative Colitis, Chronic Neutropenia, Diabetes 1 and toss predisposition to Acute Myeloid Leukemia (AML) into the mix. Tested for Ciliac and came back negative. The colitis is well under control these days since I retired from a very stressful/stress-filled career. Also various types of arthritis, lupus and even possibly related bipolar on both sides of my parent's families.
423160 tn?1206218148 Well, went to see an internal medicine doc today and am FINALLY on PTU again!!! Woo Hoo!! He said that I am "classic textbook" of graves' disease and "showed me off" to all the other doc's in the practice. (Could have done without that!
Avatar f tn My hair is dry and falling out, my skin seems thinner, I am horribly exhausted but have extreme insomnia, I have constant fidgeting and can not sit still, I am having painful onset of extreme abdominal pain and diarrhea, appetite loss and nausea. I do not have chrons, ulcerative colitis or other digestive health issues (all work ups negative). I am becoming overwhelmed with all of these physical symptoms and do not know what is wrong with me.
Avatar f tn If this is normal then inflammatory bowel conditions such as IBS, Crohn’s and ulcerative colitis will need to be ruled out. Since you do not find any relation ship to food except butter, it is unlikely to be celiac disease. Get stool tested for parasitic infections like amoebiasis and giardiasis. You may need to consult a GI specialist. Take care!
315318 tn?1353255400 I should add that Ulcerative colitis is an autoimmune disease. I already have type I diabetes and had Graves disease as other autoimmune diseases. My father had psorisis. I wonder how many AI disease a person can have concurrently ?
Avatar n tn * Vitamin B12 deficiency/Pernicious Anaemia (can cause high or low folate) * Intestinal blind loop syndrome * Inflammatory bowel disease (crohn's disease, ulcerative colitis) * Bacterial overgrowth (can also cause abnormally high serum folate levels along with low vitamin B12 levels) Vitamin B12 deficiency is a listed cause of high MCV, high MCH, high MPV and low WBC.
Avatar n tn HI, I am a 30y/female with former graves disease and thyroid cancer.(had thyroidectomy) and I have Celiac Disease. Among many other things. Anemia and yadda yadda yadda. I am constantly having to readjust my synthroid because of the absorption from the Celiac. I was on 450 mcg of synthroid for 4 1/2 years. My endo had never heard of such a high dose. And I have had many since that have not heard of it as well. Well, that was because I have Celiac and my body is no absorbing the way it should.

Avatar n tn My friend had PSC and ulcerative colitis. I never heard anything about her having AIH and I think I would have because we talked about her disease at great length. I would advise you to post your question at our expert liver transplant forum. There is a reputable physician there who answers questions about issues other than just liver transplantation. I know this is a complex disorder and I believe that Dr. Schiano might be able to refer you to a specialist who'd know about this subject.
Avatar f tn I know that there are so many out there who have been dealt such a harder blow than mine. I am a survivor, I have been dealing with crohnes, shingles, migraine, ulcerative colitis and proctitis, interstital cystitis, 2nd degree av block, severe osteopenia and vitamin d deficiency, kidney stones, and some other, well.. other health ..... things, i can do this. i can. i guess i just feel like a bus hit me. I went from being at work, doing my job, to this. it heaps on me.
Avatar n tn Metformin short circuits to some degree insulin's negative role. Metformin also reduces lipids (cholesterol) and so has very positive effects to preventing heart disease and reducing blood pressure. Google any of these terms in relation to Metformin and you will see. If you are a person who has tried to lose weight though calorie control and exercise, but have failed, you should try Metformin.
Avatar n tn it is classified as a type of inflammatory bowel disease. Graves and Hashi's are Autoimmune Diseases and are caused by the antibodies attacking the thyroid. My guess is you have a 2nd autoimmune disease.

Avatar n tn At this time I also started taking mucomyst eye drops in both eyes (4-6 times a day) and Restasis eye drops twice a day. 3 weeks ago ... joint and muscle pain, numbness and tingling started ... moved all over my body but starts between my shoulders in my back and travels throughout. Started getting mild fasciculations (twitches) all over my body but only during periods of rest. Two weeks ago... discovered mucomyst is a sulfa drug (I'm allergic). Stopped the mucomyst.

Avatar n tn Been to my GP, endo, neuro-ophthalmologist and neurologist and still no answers. I was recently diagnosed with Graves Disease (due to proptosis in my left eye). I'm dealing with the eye issue but my recent blood word shows that my thyroid is no longer hyperactive. Here's my story: 5 weeks ago ... got off tapazole (for my hyperactive thyroid) after being on low dose for two years.
Avatar f tn Type 2 MAS includes Sjogren’s syndrome, rheumatoid arthritis, primary biliary cirrhosis, scleroderma, and autoimmune thyroid disease (Hashimoto’s thyroiditis, atrophic thyroiditis, Gravesdisease).

Avatar n tn The hyperthyroidism is likely autoimmune (ie Graves disease) and can cause the muscle weakness. Beta blockers will protect the heart and help with some symptoms, but not muscle weakness. 7 weeks is a long time to wait for an evaluation for symptomatic hyperthyroidism -- would call the endo's office to try to get on the cancellation list for an earlier appointment.
Avatar n tn I have hypothyroidism and undifferentiated connective tissue disease. According to my rheumy it is more than likely Lupus and possibly fibromyalgia, as well. I have yet to get an offical diagnosis.
