    last night when i got home from work I had something really scary happen............I just gave my son a bath and all of a sudden my legs got really weak and they started shaking uncontrollably, then my stomach and legas were shaking............i thought it was low blood sugar, so i ate a banana and drank some juice.......i tested my blood sugar and it was 80 after the banana, but I was still shaking and weak, my heart was also racing and i got a really warm sensation in my chest, neck an face when this all started........i did go quite a while without eating, but it was weird that i still had the symptoms even after my blood sugar was normal..............it went away after about 30 minutes.......I read about hyper thyroidism and the symptoms are pretty much dead on, even the gritty eyes feeling. Today I had a mild case of the legs weakness, but not shaking. My blood sugar was 68 and i ate plenty of food to keep it above that. Do you think I have a thyroid problem and its making it difficult to control my blood sugar? I am lost? Do these two go hand in hand?

    symptoms of hyperthyroidism do include a racing heart as the heart rate is increased, also weight loss and elevated temperature are not uncommon,
    What you described is a severe hypoglycemic event.
    The shakiness and sensations you describe are related to an adrenalin release. It is not unusual that your blood sugar was still low after the juice and banana and that it took 30 mins for the feelings to pass..
    Easiest way to explain it is in point form:
    blood sugar drops to critical level and body reacts
    adrenalin is released in order to mobilize glycogen from storage in the liver
    adrenalin causes increased heart rate and sweating - often followed by chills
    low blood sugar creates muscle weakness / cloudy thinking, unable to think straight
    food is eaten - but because of the hypoglycemia blood has been shunted from the intestine to the brain and vital organs. Absorbtion of food is slower
    this shunting of blood may cause nausea
    stomach has to digest food and send it small intestine before the carbs can be utilized by body
    because of adrenalin release and whole body response to hypoglycemia - it can take 30 - 45 minutes before the body stops "yelling for food"...
    Often in diabetics a severe low leads ot a somoygi effect - where the blood sugar skyrockets after a low - this leads to lethargy and a crappy feeling
    Quote

    http://www.diabetesselfmanagement.com/arti.../Somogyi_Effect
    Somogyi effect,

    When blood glucose levels drop too low, the body sometimes reacts by releasing counterregulatory hormones such as glucagon and epinephrine. These hormones spur the liver to convert its stores of glycogen into glucose, raising blood glucose levels. This can cause a period of high blood sugar following an episode of hypoglycemia
    Thyroid problems are commonly associated with diabetes and celiac. If your heart rate is normal at other times and you are not suffering from insomnia and weight loss - then chances are your thyroid is fine and what you experienced was a severe hypoglycemic event. What you described is exactly what I experience during a severe hypoglycemia, including the time it takes to feel fully recovered.
    Keeping dextrose tablets on hand would be wise as they are absorbed as soon as you put them in your mouth - the body does not need to digest it or break it down before "using it".
    If you are concerned about your thyroid - you can ask to be checked.. and make sure they check more than just the TSH and T4...they should run a comprehensive thryoid panel that also checks for antibodies to the thyroid, as well as T3 levels. Also a hyperthyroid individual usually but not always has an enlarged thyroid / or nodules on it.
    Are you diabetic as well - or hypoglycemic ?- is that why you havea glucose meter?

  3. holdthegluten

    I am not diabetic or hypoglycemic............I have a meter because my wife thought she was having blood sugar issues and so we got one..........I didnt eat for 7 hrs and then had a dr pepper because i was feeling a little faint.........i was with clients one after another and didnt have time to eat. I hope it was just a one time thing. Today I checked my blood sugar and it was 68 and i ate really good........what would cause a sudden difficulty in maintaining blood sugar.

Low Thyroid And Low Blood Pressure — Health Risks And Management

Low thyroid and low blood pressure — health risks and management People have good reason to worry about high blood pressure as it puts you at risk for a number of diseases. However, low blood pressure also has health risks and problems — it can impair brain function and increase your mortality risk. What is low blood pressure? If the upper or lower number deviates by more than 10 from 120/80, which is considered healthy blood pressure, low blood pressure may be causing health symptoms. If you are not managing your Hashimoto's low thyroid with functional medicine, low blood pressure may be exacerbating problems with poor blood flow and oxygenation. What is blood pressure? Blood pressure is required to push blood through 100,000 miles of veins, arteries, and capillaries that carry oxygen, nutrients, immune cells, hormones, neurotransmitters, and other vital compounds to tissues throughout your body. If blood pressure is too high, this strains blood vessels. But if it's too low, this means not enough blood is reaching capillaries and tissues, particularly in your hands, feet, and brain. These tissues are thus deprived of sufficient oxygen and nutrients. People with this problems m Continue reading >>

    Low Thyroid Function and Diabetes

    This is something we don't talk about much and instead of trying to take over another thread I thought a new one on this would be better.
    So let's start from a snippet from Chris Kesser, this talks a bit about the interplay between the thyroid and adrenals, and low thyroid will stress the adrenals of course, which further stresses thyroid metabolism, and certainly stresses blood sugar in diabetics.
    Now the interesting thing is that he says this presents as hypoglycemia, well in non diabetics it may, but in diabetics we see the reverse happen, and this is due to hepatic glucose. So if your blood sugar is normal and your uptake is less, you will have a glucose deficiency at the cellular level.
    So what happens with us? Well our liver floods our blood with glucose and that actually helps the problem a lot, but blood sugar gets thrown under the bus.
    Slowing the clearance of insulin from the blood is actually a big deal here I think, so now you've got high insulin as well, another thing we don't want.
    How low thyroid function affects blood sugar
    We’ve seen now how both high and low blood sugar cause thyroid dysfunction. On the other hand, low thyroid function can cause dysglycemia and metabolic syndrome through a variety of mechanisms:
    it slows the rate of glucose uptake by cells;
    it decreases rate of glucose absorption in the gut;
    it slows response of insulin to elevated blood sugar; and,

    it slows the clearance of insulin from the blood.
    These mechanisms present clinically as hypoglycemia. When you’re hypothyroid, your cells aren’t very sensitive to glucose. So although you may have normal levels of glucose in your blood, you’ll have the symptoms of hypoglycemia (fatigue, headache, hunger, irritability, etc.). And since your cells aren’t getting the glucose they need, your adrenals will release cortisol to increase the amount of glucose available to them. This causes a chronic stress response, as I described above, that suppresses thyroid function.

    Hey ya beat me to it
    OK, let me toss some info. in.
    Hyperthyroidism. Hyperthyroidism is typically associated with worsening blood glucose control and increased insulin requirements. The excessive thyroid hormone causes increased glucose production in the liver, rapid absorption of glucose through the intestines, and increased insulin resistance (a condition in which the body does not use insulin efficiently). It may be important to consider underlying thyroid disorder if a person has unexplained weight loss, deterioration in blood glucose control, or increased insulin requirements.

    Functions of Cortisol & DHEA
    Cortisol is a primary stress hormone produced by the adrenals, and is also a potent anti-inflammatory hormone. Cortisol's action can suppress immune function. Another of its primary functions is to raise blood sugar through gluconeogenesis. High amounts of glucocorticoids can suppress thyroid function, chiefly the inhibition of the conversion of T4 into the active T3. CRH (cortico-tropin releasing hormone), which is a hypothalamus precursor to cortisol can inhibit thyroid function as well, suppressing TSH.
    DHEA (dehydroepiandrosterone) is called an androgenic hormone. It is a precursor for testosterone and the estrogens. DHEA antagonizes the effects of cortisol. DHEA is a very powerful anti-aging hormone. Low levels of DHEA are found among those with Cancer, CVD, Alzheimer's, Diabetes, Depression, Hypothyroidism and Adrenal Fatigue.
    Since cortisol and DHEA have opposing effects, they should be viewed together as a ratio. Like with every major control system in the body, cortisol and DHEA work through their alternating, dualistic balance.
    The ratio between cortisol and DHEA has numerous effects in the body. When cortisol is elevated disproportionately to DHEA, the ratio is higher. When the cortisol to DHEA ratio is elevated, the numerous biological effects that this ratio has in the body is augmented. Here are some of the major effects of the Cortisol to DHEA ratio:
    The balance of pro/anti-inflammatory stasis
    Immune Regulation. Remeber that cortisol suppresses immune function
    Protein, Fat and Glucose metabolism. Evidence suggests that hyperglycemia, which can result in diabetes, in many cases can be caused specifically from imbalanced cortisol and DHEA levels
    Thyroid, Pancreas and ovarian function
    Detoxification capacity. Since the body needs energy to properly deal with toxic metals, the hormones produced by the adrenal glands are considered to be the cornerstone to heavy metal and xenobiotic elimination.
    Skeletal health. High levels of cortisol can cause breakdown of bone as well as the collagen matrix that holds bone together.
    Memory. DHEA is a critical component for brain function and cognition.

    Cortisol and DHEA have intrinsic relationships with numerous other steroidal hormones such as progesterone and aldosterone. If adrenal function is compromised, the body may bypass the pregnenelone > progesterone > cortisol pathway and "steal" pregnenelone. This can cause numerous complications including the transference of progesterone into androgenic testosterone.

Let Me Show You The Weight Destroyer Program discount STEP 1 Click this link http://bit.ly/1CIBs0I STEP 2 close the window opened, a massage will appear ask not to leave STEP 3 press don't leave or open page STEP 4 repeat step 2 but this time its your discount press stay in page I purchased the weight destroyer program before few weeks and in summary I can tell you that I am not disappointed. This nutrition program is much more detailed and easy to follow compared to other similar programs on the internet which I've tried using before and the support service from Michal Wren and his team is very good so far. I personally really like that Michal Wren not only give you a comprehensive list of foods and recommended serving sizes that will lead to fast weight loss results but also explains everything behind the recommendations so you can fit the weight destroyer program for your personal needs easily and to know what you should eat and what you should not based on the specific state of your body. In addition, the fact that this program designed not only for weight loss but also for other health benefits is also big advantage, at least for me. With that said, don't believe to the review

Hypothyroidism And Low Blood Pressure Health Risks

Most people worry about high blood pressure, and with good reason as it portends numerous health risks. However, low blood pressure brings a different set of problems, such as reduced brain function and increased mortality risk. If the upper or lower number deviates by more than 10 from 120/80, it pays to be aware low blood pressure may be affecting your health. If you have Hashimoto’s hypothyroidism but are not managing it with functional medicine, you may have additional problems with poor blood flow and oxygenation, which compound the problems of low blood pressure. Blood pressure pushes blood through about 100,000 miles of veins, arteries, and capillaries in the body, carrying oxygen, nutrients, immune cells, hormones, neurotransmitters, and other vital compounds. High blood pressure strains blood vessels. However, low blood pressure means not enough blood is getting to capillaries and tissues, particularly in your hands, feet, and brain.
