okay the question of the day is can hashimoto's give you a hoarse voice and the answer is yes and uh and and frankly it's it's it's kind of a it's kind of a gauge to help the clinician to maybe understand what kind of hashimoto's case he's he's working with as well as um maybe where to start care with with that type of patient so hashimoto's in horse voice it's it's it's pretty much this is the more unstable hashimoto's patient so if you have a horse voice you reach up here and your thyroid maybe swells a little bit and it goes away and swells a little bit maybe it's tender maybe you don't have any of the tenderness or swelling maybe you just have the hoarseness in the voice itself you are uh and it's and it's and it's affecting your throat usually it's because the thyroid is getting attacked the the hoarseness of the voice is usually because it is affecting your thyroid maybe not to the degree where you're able to perceive that the thyroid is enlarging a little bit because because when i palpate people's thyroids i would say more than half are shocked when i say you have an enlarged thyroid and then i have a and that food starts to react and their immune system starts to flare up they'll they'll get an inflammatory response either against their thyroid against their thyrocytes their their their thyrocytes are thyroid cells against their thyroid cells and then that'll create an inflammatory response maybe you get a little bit of enlargement in there um and and then you have that hoarseness and then you have and it comes and it goes for no reason at all you might have swelling with it you may not have swelling with it and that's that's kind of how it goes if a person comes in here and they're that significant that's acute to me that's like a right now thing let's get that under control right now because if you get that under control right now a lot of the patients symptoms feel better the the problem i have with that is then that the patient thinks they're better because then they go like well i'm done but at that point we usually need to find the rest of their triggers and and and a lot of times they're like so happy because they're feeling so much better that that they don't follow through with that but that's another story so this is so this is um so this is yeah this is significant you can get this it's a sign that you're either in an acute response or that if you're like me and i'm not in acute situations anymore i mean i have my hashimoto's like largely under control uh but if but for me it's it's kind of a sign of like okay there's a trigger somewhere then i that i didn't miss something happened to me today something because basically in hashimoto's look you're looking to get the person to stop the downward progress you're looking to get them out of remission and then you're looking to have them have enough awareness to know that you have to manage this thing you have to look for future triggers did i get stressed today did i not get enough sleep last night for me it could be some of those things and so i just go like okay i got to get a good night's sleep tonight or or you know maybe i ate too much salt so i didn't i need to take some potassium that's that can be a bellwether for a lot of you even even after you're really really really feeling good that could be a bellwether for some of you so don't think oh my god i'm not cured yet or everything because you don't cure hashimoto's but it can be that so so the answer the short answer was yes it can cause yes yes it can cause you to have hoarseness and the long answer is everything else i just got done telling you so yeah so hashimoto's and hoarseness i think that's a good topic – Okay. The question of the day is, can Hashimoto's give you a hoarse voice? And the answer is yes.
00:00:13
And frankly it's kind of a gauge to help the clinician to maybe understand what kind of Hashimoto's case he's working with as well as maybe where to start care with, with that type of patient. So Hashimoto's and hoarse voice.
00:00:38
It's, it's, it's pretty much this is the more unstable Hashimoto's patient.
00:00:47
So if you have a hoarse voice, you reach up here and your thyroid's maybe swells a little bit and then goes away and swells a little bit. Maybe it's tender, maybe you don't have any of the tenderness or swelling, maybe you just have the hoarseness in the voice itself.
00:01:02
You are, and, and it's, and it's affecting your throat.
00:01:06
Usually it's because the thyroid is getting attacked. The hoarseness of the voice is usually because it is affecting your thyroid, maybe not to the degree where you're able to perceive that the thyroid is enlarging a little bit, because when I palpated people's thyroids, I would say more than half are shocked. When I say you have an enlarged thyroid and then I have a, an, and that food starts to react. And our immune system starts to flare up. They'll, they'll get an inflammatory response either against their thyroid against their thyroid sites, their, their their thyroid sites or thyroid cells against their thyroid cells. And then that'll create an inflammatory response. Maybe you get a little bit of enlargement in there and and then you have that hoarseness, and then you have and then it comes and it goes for no reason at all. You might have swelling with it. You may not have swelling with it. And that's, that's kinda how it goes.
00:02:00
If a person comes in here and there that's significant that's acute to me, that's like a right now thing. Let's get that under control right now.
00:02:08
Because if you get that under control right now a lot of the patient's symptoms feel better then the problem I have with that is then that the patient thinks they're better because then they go like, well, I'm done. But at that point we usually need to find the rest of their triggers.
00:02:25
And, and, and a lot of times they're like so happy because they're feeling so much better than that. They don't follow through with that. But that's another story. So this is, so this is so this is, yeah, this is significant. You can get, this is a sign that you're either in an acute response or that if you're like me and I'm not in acute situations anymore. I mean, I have my Hashimoto's like largely under control, but, but for me it, it's it's kind of a sign of like, okay, there's a trigger somewhere then I, that I didn't miss something happened to me today. Something, because basically in Hashimoto's look, you're looking to get the person to stop the downward progress. You're looking to get them out of remission. And then you're looking to have them have enough awareness to know that you have to manage this thing. You have to look for future trigger. Do I, did I get stressed today? Did I get enough sleep last night? For me, it could be some of those things. And so I just go like, okay I got to get a good night's sleep tonight. Or, or, you know, maybe I eat too much salt. So I didn't, I need to take some potassium or that ,that can be a bellwether for a lot of you, even if even after you're really, really, really feeling good. That could be a bellwether for some of you. So don't think, Oh my God, I'm not sure yet, or everything. Cause you don't cure a Hashimoto's, but it can be that. So, so the answer the short answer was yes, it can cause yes, yes.
00:03:48
It can cause you to have hoarseness. And the long answer is everything else. I just got that it's honey. So yeah. So Hashimoto's and hoarseness, I think that's a good topic.
