How many out there had a thyroid cyst uncovered in there doppler scan? or were already aware of having them?
I've read this enough here now to say..sure seems to be a common issue and i've read that the thyroid is intrinsically tied to the venous system. So if venous flow is compromised resulting in thyroid cysts, resulting in thyroid disease and given that healthy thyroid function is critical to healthy life.. seems like a pretty good reason to resolve the problem? no?
(guess there is no proof of cause and trials would be needed ..sigh)
(This is all speculation but what if CF (chronic fatigue) sufferers are the flip side of MS? MS is linked to genetic abnormalities in the HLA/immune genes and in the vascular formation genes. I am wondering if someone with chronic fatigue has just half of that equation: the genetic tendency toward vascular malformations, without the tendency to have the immune system have a strong reaction.)
The thyroid is highly vascular and it's right in the danger zone where the blood flow is wacky from CCSVI!
You a very very smart woman
'nother note.. i read on facebook that there 'might' be a problem in albany? heard anything?
She said many mser's have t. problems.
One member of CCSVI Manitoba had her thyroid checked recently
and a very large mass was discovered. I don't know if it was found to be malignant, haven't been following her blog lately. She's a nurse.
If you want to read more I can give you the address by pm.
Hi Blossom, I can throw in what i know based on personal experience.. I am one of the many with thyroid cysts.. they were discovered as a sidebar to my ccsvi doppler scan (positive).. I then had to go through public healthcare for a rescan to get the cysts on record. I have two, they will be monitored every 3-4 months for changes and would only be considered for surgery if determined cancerous (they do not appear to be ptl) or troublesome.. (grew so large they had a profound impact on voice/swallowing/ thyroid health etc)

I saw that too about Albany but I think it might just have been a misunderstanding of what they said in the email, which is that they're not scheduling until it gets closer to the procedure time? I don't think they scheduled people past September. (It had been reported earlier that they were having too many cancelations and they considered a waste of staff time to have made all the phone calls and set things up. Cancelations being due to everyone being on multiple lists.) The other thing is that it wasn't clear which Albany doctor they were talking about.
blossom, I don't know much about the thyroid, I think Pcakes answered your question better than I could!

some were back in the thisisms forum is a thread on thyroids which also included a link to Dr Z's paper on thyroid and CCSVI
Some DMD require that you have a thyroid test prior to going on DMD drugs
Some DMD do cause problems with the thyroid glands which is why some msers are screened regulary as part of the risk of DMD...

I am trying ice on my thyroid, now that I know where the thermometer in question is. Few tries yet, seems to work in hot sun.
Not a doctor.
I am a dietitian. Yes, here in the great lakes basin we need iodine. That is why it was added to salt in the 1920's. We may need selenium also though for people living in mountainous regions, it could cause toxicity. I should hope we all know now how much Vitamin D to take, somewhere around 4,000 IU daily though I have seen recomendations for more.
I suggest that eveyone take a multi vitamin mineral daily though I am trying to take one without iron now. Most of us need more Vitamin D and calcium but other than that everything is in the multi vitamin mineral pill.
Supplements will not cause thyroid nodules or cysts to go away. Proper blood flow may.
