Thyroid and urinary problems

Common Questions and Answers about Thyroid and urinary problems


Avatar m tn Also, I suggest that you have a urologic consult done so that a baseline urinalysis and urine culture may be taken. Infections may cause urinary frequency and urgency. Do you have any diabetes or thyroid problems? Do you drink a lot of water prior to sleeping at night? An evaluation of your prostate as well as an abdominal scan may be able to help rule out any underlying structural problems. Have you had an initial consult done along this line?
Avatar f tn In my opinion, investigations like kidney functions, blood sugar levels, ultrasound lower abdomen , intravenous pyelography ,prostate specific antigen blood test, thyroid function tests and cystoscopy may be needed to confirm a diagnosis. I sincerely advice you to consult a urologist or nephrologist. I sincerely hope that helps. Take care and please do keep me posted on how you are doing. Warm regards.
646782 tn?1224284984 there is a lot of stuff going on in that post but i will say that thyroid can be autoimmune and so can celiac and both are quite common together and believe me both will affect the heart rate in the long run .graves disease is harder to control that hashimotos and it will make the hr higher if not under control.if the thyroid is autoimmune it can reverse back to normal and go up again.
Avatar f tn I had no pain or burning during urination. However, I tested positive for a urinary tract infection and began on pyridium and bactrim. My symptoms did not improve so I began on Levaquin for 10 days. Since then I have had an ultrasound of my kidneys, ovaries, and bladder, and everything was normal. My labwork was also normal. My symptoms did not improve and I began on Vesicare, which did not help, and now I am on Detrol LA. This does not seem to be helping either.
Avatar f tn ) I didn't think the drug would work for me either, and I've looked at the interactions between that and the thyroid medication and the anticholergenic drug is known as an endocrine disruptor and can also cause tachycardia (the thyroid medication I'm on is meant to increase my metabolism and thus may increase my heart rate anyway) so I think taking a drug that will do that as well as what I already take is asking for trouble.
Avatar f tn When he goes, it is a full steady stream. He is 35 years old and has no health problems. He has went to the bathroom 4 times since he came home 2 hours ago. He said this has been going on for 2 days. He urinates at least once during the night, which has been going on for years. Any input will help. Thanks.
Avatar n tn Before this month, I rarely ever had any urinary problems. Last week, I had one incident where I had the sudden urge to go to the bathroom and had to bolt out of class. I "leaked" a little bit of urine even before I had the chance to go. After that, my symptoms of urgency and frequency increased about 10 fold. I went to my student health center and they performed an urinalysis. It was negative for WBC but they still gave me Cipro 500mgx 3 days.

Avatar n tn I am a currently 25 year old male, and would like advice in regards to the following please. In terms of urinary questions. I have been finding more and more recently that I am experience a very urgent feeling when needing to go, and if I dont quickly then within 10-15min my bladder gets to the point where my abdomen is distended quite a bit. This by itself is not completely unnerving, but often this will happen several times over the course of just a few hours.
Avatar f tn I also have a low back ache after lying in bed all night which gets better as I move about, and tingling in feet. X-rays show mild arthritis. Diabetes and thyroid normal. Neurontin was no help. Antiarthritic no help so far. Could this aching in back and feet tingling be related at all to perimenopause? Thank you.
Avatar f tn I was referred to an Endo who immediately referred me for a radio active scan and to a Surgeon who diagnosed Thyroiditis and the largest goiter he had ever seen. In 2004 I had surgery to remove my entire thyroid and lymph nodes. While I have managed to work with the endo, eventually getting my TSH to level off at 1.8, I had been stable on .15 Levoxil, excercised daily, watched my diet, took my vitamins and my weight stabilized - I felt quite good.
407651 tn?1224193495 i would like to know whether any of these drugs would be safe to take after a urinary re implantation. i had 2 holes one in each kidney that was patched up and the adjoining tubing was replaced. this was at leats 15 years ago which was sucesfull however i get bothered with a irratible bladder that causes me to have problems i was prescribed medication by a consultant but found it unhelpfull so stopped.
Avatar f tn Hi For the past year or so I've had gradually worsening problems with my bladder, at first it was just a day or so when I couldn't empty my bladder until last July when it finally failed and I had to go to the emergency room and have a catheter inserted. Several tests later and I've just been told that it's permanent and now my choice is to learn to self-cathertiser or have my indwelling catheter.
Avatar m tn I had migranes from magnesium deficiency. "Magnesium deficits and increased urinary magnesium excretion can occur in people with insulin resistance and/or type 2 diabetes [24,25]. The magnesium loss appears to be secondary to higher concentrations of glucose in the kidney that increase urine output [2].
Avatar m tn While chronic prostatitis is a very common condition worldwide, the cause is not clear- it could be due to a bacterial infection, autoimmune conditions or chemical irritation of the prostate. Pain, problems in urination, sexual dysfunction, fatigue, headaches, low energy level, aches and pains all over the body are usually observed.
Avatar m tn Most commonly, people think of menopausal changes when they think of hormones and women, and certainly, this is an important consideration. Other hormonal problems can be treated by appropriately trained physicians, as well. Among these are PCOS, chronic fatigue, hair loss, and simply being overweight. If you are suffering from a condition that you would like to get treated, come talk to one of our trained physicians now!
Avatar f tn High concentrations of GGT are found in the liver, bile ducts, and the kidney. Hence kidney and urinary problems could be causing the high GGT level. Greater-than-normal levels of GGT may indicate: congestive heart failure, cholestasis (congestion of the bile ducts), cirrhosis, hepatitis, liver ischemia (blood flow deficiency), liver necrosis, liver tumor, high alcohol intake, use of hepatotoxic drugs (drugs toxic to liver).
Avatar f tn There may be a correlation between thyroid problems in general and gallbladder problems. Who knows? Not enough research. There is a correlation between thyroid problems and Type II diabetes; reflux; and PCOS (together or individually) so I wouldn't be shocked if there is a gallbladder component too. Planning on having it out?
Avatar n tn Could it be thyroid causing all my problems, including the diabetes sugar level? My mother had thyroid problems and osteoporosis, which is why I take HRT (to avoid osteoporosis). There is no history of breast cancer. On the other side of my family, both of my grandparents died from cerebral thrombosis or cerbral haemorrhage, with high blood pressure. My blood pressure has always been on the low side.
Avatar n tn as of now and my thyroid is on increase. Now i have started having unbearable pain in the urinary tract with high burning i feel my urinary tract will burst ,the pressure for urinating is so high ,and when i go to urinate ,just few drops of urine comes with lots of pain and burning.looking forward for ur reply.
Avatar f tn I had a feeling that just routine tests are not enough to figure out what's up with hormonal fluctuations and how they relate to thyroid issues. That gives me a lot of hope and help to stand firm with my doctor and ask for some more in depth help, or at least let him know I'm going to pursue a consult with the specialist my friend went to see. I am tired of being told I'm an over-sensitive new mom, and why wouldn't I be tired, etc.
Avatar n tn Does this happen 100% of the time? Erectile problems and ejaculation problems have both structural and psychogenic factors to be considered. In your case, I suggest that you have this assessed by a urologist so that a complete physical examination and medical history may be done. Do you still experience nighttime erections? Any underlying disease conditions like diabetes? Any previous trauma or instrumentation to the area? Any recurrent forms of urinary tract infection?
Avatar n tn ” I did start to have some acid problems and the antacids did seem to help with those, and my burps and hiccups. but didn’t do anything for my other symptoms besides that. At this time my symptoms were the following. 1.Fequent urination 2. Hiccups, burping 3. Tingling in my hands and feet. 4. Shortness of breath. 5. These Strange “attacks” that I just ignored until they went away. 6. Some back pain. 7. Heavy heart beat. What felt like heart palpitations.
1797743 tn?1389217285 and I mentioned dessicated thyroid and referenced a book I'd been reading. My T3 Free came back at 2.8 and T4 Free came back at 1.3. I was also told by my doc that the book I referenced had "a lot of big words in it". I was told that the labs came back normal and the doctor wanted to consider sleep apnea and gave me a prescription for valium and told that if it worked for me maybe I'd be given a prescription for something more permanent.
Avatar n tn On the drug, my life is spent in the bathroom with constant bowel and urinary issues,unable to sleep, and constantly hungry. Repeated tests for the bowel and urinary tract issues have been negative. Interestingly I don't have the tired issues that most thyroid patients unfortunately experience, before or after I was diagnosed. I feel healthy when I am off the drug and so ill when I am on the drug. I am too scared to get off the stuff.
Avatar n tn If you are male, a thorough prostate check needs to be considered to rule out any enlargement. Metabolic problems like diabetes or thyroid disorders can also be considered as well. Blood tests can be done to rule out these possibilities. As for surgical desensitization - I am not familiar with this procedure. If the tests discussed above are negative, this can be considered with your urologist and neurologist. Followup with your personal physician is essential.
Avatar n tn I also recently had a CBC and liver panel which all were normal, and i had them test my thyroid (also normal)because during my breathing problems it seemed as if my trachea above my chestbone was larger than normal.Now i do not seem to have much lower back/flank pain.Throughout this septra run, my urine has looked gold, but the color seems to fall to the bottom of the toilet quickly, though it does dilute with the water i drink.
