Answer to your Health Question

Question: My sister said she was told that she had both hypo and hyper thyroid at the same time. Is this possible? Thank you for your help. Debbie

Answer: Dear Debbie,

Some people can have both Hashimoto's Thyroiditis (hypothyroidism) and Graves' Disease (hyperthyroidism) and their thryroid gland cycles up and down through hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. This is not a very common condition. Hypothyroidism patients who frequently have hyperthyroidism symptoms should ask a doctor for full antibody profiles to detect the presence of both Hashimoto's thyroiditis and Graves' disease.
