Thyroid Nodules

Has anyone delt with a nodules in the thyroid?

Dummy me! I just found an article explaining the relationship between thyroid problems and diabetes and common sense should of made me realize that there must be a relationship. After I study the article, which is above my head in understanding, I will get the main points and report back in common language. The article explains what leads to hyperglycemia and what leads to hypoglycemia. I suffered from hypoglycemia for years and blamed it all on stress and eating. So I was surprised when I flip flopped to hyperglycemia. I think I will understand it better if I study the article. The article said genetics plays a role as well. That is too much for me right now to fathom because my family did not have diabetes problems. Dorisena

The article is The relationship between type 2 diabetes mellitus and related thyroid diseased by the Journal of Diabetes Research. On the first page is a list of related articles as well. It will take time to study, but we can learn something, I think. Dorisena

Here is a link to an article about Type 2 Diabetes and Thyroid Disease. While it may not be the same one you saw originally, it will probably give you some information.

I learned enough tonight to know why things happened in the past and what led to the metabolic syndrome that led to the diabetes. I know now why my sister was given insulin shots in the hospital when she was in a hypoglycemic state and she couldn't speak or tell them to stop. That was technically the treatment for her condition and it didn't work at all and they almost killed her. My doctor knew that I was headed to diabetes and he never mentioned it to me when I complained of the neuropathy, so when I exercised and the burning went away, I delayed the development of the disease. He was looking for swollen ankles and I didn't have swelling, so he said nothing. Shortly after that my blood test showed 126 on the blood sugar and he mentioned it. I learned tonight that hypoglycemia is associated with thyroid problems as well as hyperglycemia and I should have been aware that I was flipflopping to hyperglycemia but I thought after the hypo went away and I felt well, I was cured. I learned that elevated blood pressure is a part of the problem as well, and I could have been working on that as well. Bottom line is that I must work harder and get more exercise even with my back surgery limitations, and I know I can work on that.
I also could benefit by staying out of the kitchen a little more. We can do more at home if we continue to support each others' efforts. Go team! Dorisena
Not much we can do about the genes, however. I loved my parents.. My father had diabetes but we did not take it seriously.
