Can hyperthyroidism be cured? Is killing your thyroid better than suffering the side effects of PTU? Which testing should you focus on when dealing with Graves’ disease? Does perimenopause affect the thyroid?

Today, I’m back with another Q&A episode, answering multiple questions submitted by the Save My Thyroid community. While I can’t get to everyone’s questions every time, I love creating these for you, and I’ll do similar episodes every couple of months. Please share your questions with me by emailing info@naturalendocrinesolutions.com, and I'll include the most relevant ones in upcoming episodes.

In this episode, you’ll learn:

Q1: Where do I get started with testing when it comes to Graves’ disease?
Q2: What is the parathyroid's function, and what can you do when the parathyroid is involved?
Q3: Is killing your thyroid better than the side effects of PTU?
Q4: How can I lower TPO antibodies?
Q5: How do you stop being hot with hyperthyroidism and Graves’, and how do you lower antibody levels quickly?
Q6: If thyroid nodules are too small for biopsies and are monitored and may cause anxiety symptoms, shouldn't they be removed?
Q7: I have thyroid eye disease; is there a natural treatment I can try to lower my TSI levels?
Q8: Can hypothyroidism be cured? Do you say that hypothyroidism is the same as Hashimoto’s?
Q9: I have heard that hyperthyroidism causes the thyroid to burn out, and then you become hypothyroid. Is this true, and if so, what can prevent or delay it?
Q10: Can you remind me of the benefits of glutathione and how you can take it? Do you recommend taking a binding agent with glutathione?
Q11: I have a question about the TRAB range. Why aim for in-range numbers and not zero?
Q12: What diet should you eat with thyroid issues? How do you transition from pharma meds to herbs?
Q13: How soon after the TSH becomes suppressed can the levels rise following a natural protocol? What additional steps can one take to promote the restoration of a healthy TSH balance?
Q14: Are protein shakes the best way to get enough amino acids? Which would you recommend? How does perimenopause affect the thyroid, and how can one boost libido?
Q15: Will heart symptoms I’ve developed since my Graves’ disease diagnosis stop when the thyroid numbers get into the normal range, or are those things here to stay?
Q16: Have any therapies - such as PMF, red light therapy, oxygen therapy, cryotherapy, compressed air, squeeze detox, sound therapy, or AI-assisted weight resistance machines - been found to benefit low thyroid?
Q17: What are your thoughts on the effectiveness of AHCC in treating nodules in the presence of autoimmunity? Could it aggravate autoimmunity by stimulating the immune response?
Q18: What are the differences between thyroid cysts and nodules?
Q19: What do I need to know about reverse T3?
Q20: How much protein do you recommend daily?
Q21: Which supplements work better for hypo- versus hyperthyroidism?
Q22: Can hormones produced by other glands, like the adrenals, affect the thyroid?

As always, I hope you find this episode valuable, and I look forward to catching you in the next episode!
