I suffered hyperthyroidism since last quarter of 2000, i was still single then. I got married in Feb of 2001, I became pregnant and give birth Dec 2002. Until now, i had not this one removed yet, I am visiting a herbal specialist in Lian Batangas for 3 months now and had a regular visit monthly. I take imported herbal medicines which is being sold in his clinic. I was informed at the start that he can melt this one..on my third visit he said that this can completely heal at the end of this year. I wll be waiting for that moment and will let you know of my status from time to time. It will be a great help since I will no longer experienced of being cut just to get rid of this deficiency.

I have hyperthyroidism as well.. what kind of herbal medicine is that? because currently I am taking strumazol thiamazole. I think that has helped me reach the normal amount of thyroid hormones.. I feel well and I dont have symptoms like I used to before.. I really thought that this kind of condition prevents pregnancy? That's what I heard.. Did you have a hard time conceiving?

I think any thyroid condition affects the body's functioning including conception. Leah-jin is fortunate because she was able to conceive.I had my hyperthyroidism maybe while I was pregnant that's why my blood pressure shoots up to 220/180 while I was on labor.

thank you for that information. I had my check up last 2 weeks ago. According to my doctor, i have hyperthyroidism-toxic goiter. I experienced diarrhea & lasted for 4 weeks. My doc gave me Inderal & Tapdin. Is herbal medicine effective for hyperthyroidism? We have that med in our house. thank you....

hi! I am from San Pedro, Laguna. I had this post-natal hyperthyroidism confirmed last nov 2007, i gave birth on aug 2007 and suffered eclampsia so I had to deliver my baby thru CS. My endocrinologist said that it will be on my disadvantage if ill have it removed through radiaton or operation because I can't see my child for a period of time. Instead, she prescribed Tapdin (methimazole) and Atenolol for my thyrotoxic heart disease. The medication will take 18 to 4 months to avoid any relapse. I suggest that u also consult a specialist. Herbal medicines are also helpful but we can't be so sure since some of its properties are not yet determined. My mom even suggested that I take mangosteen tablets but I have to prioritize the prescribed medicine first since I don't have that much cash.
