Back to Ask the Diabetes Team Thyroid

Thyroid from 2006

  1. My son's TSH was borderline high, but his endocrinologist prefers to wait and begin treatment later. Shouldn't he start on medication now before he gets more symptoms? (17 Dec 2006)
  2. Diagnosed with type 1 and Grave's disease recently, our young daughter is allergic to Tapazol. She is now on PTU. Will she also be allergic to it? (7 Nov 2006)
  3. Since starting on Synthroid, my blood sugar has been fine fasting, but going up before I eat breakfast. Is the Synthroid causing the increase? (31 Oct 2006)
  4. Can you give me more information about how the low thyroid effects menstruation and about insulin resistance before the menstrual cycle? (26 Oct 2006)
  5. I have an underactive thyroid. I've heard that there is a direction connection between this and diabetes. Is this true? (18 Oct 2006)
  6. My teen daughter, an athlete, has leg cramps and dry skin. She had an enlarged thyroid, but other tests were negative. What else should we look for? (17 Oct 2006)
  7. My daughter's thyroid test came back borderline. Do you know if anyone who has been put on medication when their blood results have come back borderline? (2 Sep 2006)
  8. My stepson gained a lot of weight in a short time. Is this related to his low thyroid? Will he outgrow this? Or, is there something else going on? (30 Jul 2006)
  9. My toddler has yellowish skin and isn't gaining weight at her usual rate. The doctor wants to check her thyroid, but could she also be developing type 1 diabetes? (14 Jul 2006)
  10. I am overweight and exercise regularly, but cannot lose weight. My recent blood sugar was slightly elevated. I am exhausted. What could be going on? (25 Apr 2006)
  11. I had postpartum thyroiditis after giving birth, but my TSH levels returned to normal. I have symptoms again. Is it possible to have hyperthyroidism with "normal" TSH levels? (15 Apr 2006)
  12. My teen son will be traveling in Europe this summer. Should he need it, can he buy additional Lantus and NovoLog there? (2 Mar 2006)
  13. Since his diagnosis, my teen son has been depressed and suicidal. Could there be a correlation between his hypothyroidism, uncontrolled blood sugars and depression? (17 Feb 2006)
