Hi im 4 days late with my period I did both a urine and blood test and both were negative and my urine is dark yellow, could I be pregnant or not? That last day of my last period was 28/9/2012

doctor1 MD

Hello, I would be happy to help you.

Assuming regular cycles, if you are 4 days late and a blood test is NOT positive, then you are not pregnant! The most common explanation for irregular cycles relates to irregularity in terms of when you ovulate. This can be normal, but also related to abnormal...

Hi

I have a small goiter and antibody that indicate Hashimoto's condition. However, my thryoid reading is still normal. I have a family history of thyroid disease. I also have a family history of later life diabetes (after 50).

Should there be any change in handling, including any thyroid supplement given the preceding?

Best,

XXXXXXX

doctor1 MD

Hello. I'm Dr. Christensen.
I'm sorry you're having problems with your thyroid. Your doctor may have already told you that Hashimoto's thyroiditis is an autoimmune disease. This means your immune system has decided your thyroid gland is a foreign agent, and it is producing antibodies to reject...

I am taking thytrophin pmg which is just used to support healthy thyroid function. I do not have a thyroid disease, but at the beginning of the year I took a steroid for a cold and it messed with my thyroid a little. I only take 1 pill a day and it's natural stuff so I was wondering if I could take oxyelite pro and if I would be ok.

doctor1 MD

Hello I just read your query and from what you have mentioned it appears that the oxyelite pro has been recalled by the FDA because of the adverse effects of liver failure and hepatitis and death in one person.
I would not recommend this at all for your health.
Hope you find my advice of some...

I am a 58 year old female. My blood pressure is usually 120/80. I went for an appointment for a thyroid biopsy and it shot up to 200/100. When the doctor determined by the ultrasound I didn't need the biopsy, it began to lower--around 143/90 when i left? Should I be concerned?

doctor1 MD

I have an occasional rapid heartbeat. When I first started with it the Drs diagnosed me with Graves disease. But after 2 years or so I the Dr said that either I had gone into remission or it has gone away. I take propranolol and i was fine until about 1 month ago. I was retested for the Graves but that was normal. My Dr upped the dosage of the propranolol but I am still concerned that it is something else. The palpatations are usually at night.

I am a 43 year old male. My entire life I have felt hot and I have always sweated profusely. The least little amount of activity can trigger sweating. Even when I go skiing and it's 20-degrees, I can only wear a single layer of clothing (short sleeve shirt). I tend to get dehydrated very quickly, so I have to drink water also continuously. In social settings, I tend to avoid activity in an effort to avoid getting hot and sweaty. Do I have Hyperthyroidism or some other condition? This constant condition can't be normal and it certainly prohibits me from living life to the fullest.
