What is the name of a blood disorder that starts with a T?My best friend's mother in law just had a mini-stroke last night. They just found out that she has some blood disorder that starts with a T, noone seems to remember what the name was and I wanted to do some more research on it. Basically it has something to do with her white blood cells and because of it, she has to have at least 2 blood transfusions and with her thyroid disease and heart murmur, they give her a 10% maximum chance of surviving after they do the transfusions and put a stint in her heart. Anyways, I just need to know the name of a blood disorder that starts with a T so I can do some research on it for my friend so she and her husband can know a little more about what it is. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!

What is the growth rate of a thyoid nodule?I was diagnosed with a thyroid nodule about a year ago. Since that time I have had several tests including a biopsy which came out fine. The thyroid nodule measured at 1.3 cm in Sept. 2005 when the first ultrasound was performed. I had a follow up ultrasound done today that measured it at 2.6 cm. I am taking synthroid for a underactive thyroid which should also be suppressing the growth of the nodule as well. I was just wondering if the growth rate is common or not?

Does anyone know of any online resources for failure to thrive or growth disorder in infants?My son has been under the 3rd percentile for his weight since he was about 4 months old.

Food feeling stuck in chest-possible thryoid cancer - something else?Hello, I don't even know where to begin. I have a thyroid nodule that has been biopsed and I am waiting for the results. I can feel the nodule when I swallow. I am so nervous that I have thryoid cancer that I took anti anxiety pills, but now stopped. Took some trazadone to sleep but now stopped.

Anyone know what this is from? Also, other symptom since this all started is morning congestion every morning. Never had that before either. (2 months now) Please help me?

I recently found out that I may have a thyroid disorder. Has anyone lost weight after medication?Over the last 8 or 9 months I have been gaining a little more weight than I ever have before.

Hair Loss...Help!!?Ever since I gave birth to my daughter 7 months ago I have lost so much hair. Every time I wash and condition my hair, it just comes out like crazy. I roll it into a ball as a size of a golf ball. I wash my hair every other day and hate to too because I freak out. At first my doctor said it could be my hormones, and then when my blood work came back everything was normal, when she checked my thyroid on my 6 week check up, that was fine. What else could it be? Currently I went to GNC and bought some Biotin shampoo and conditioner and some vitamins and it's still not working. My doctor still has me on prenatal as well. The only thing that has changed is I have been diagnosed with anxiety and panic disorder....which my hair loss causes even more stress. I don't know what to do, if you have any suggestions, please help me out. I need some encouragement or some other answers.

Im confused about all this because I have had 3 radiologists and a family doctor tell me thier impression was hyperthyroidism and this endo has prescribed me a psyciatryst. Any doctors out there have a second opinion?

I ended up pregnant very much by surprise...I am estimated to be 14 weeks on Wednesday. Here is where I am confused though....It is said by doctor that baby was conceived in August...Here is the basic facts about August for me....I only had sex on two days in August, on Aug 4th and Aug 21. I had a strange, early period on Aug 9 that only lasted for 3 days. (Normal for me is 7 days). I have been told possibly conceived baby on the 4th not the 21st, as would be more likely. How does this work? How is this possible? What would be the chances baby was conceived prior to the early period? And what is the accuracy that the doctor could possibly know for sure? Have had two ultrasounds, and they still question it...Any way to know for certain?

Where can I get financial aid for medical test(Port Arthur/Beaumont/Galveston residents)?I live in Pt. Arthur,Tx. Doc told me I have nodules in thyroid.Need thyroid scan preformed at JohnSealy in Galveston.I was approved for reduced pay.But test will still cost $327.Where can I get aide to help cover this? Is there any agencies that might help? Tried redcross, sal army and all the usuals.Please help. Doc said its probally cancer.But due to the cost I'm denied being able to have the scan done which would tell me if it is. No johnsealy wont take payments(already tried that)If anyone out there works at johnsealy and can give me some inside tips, I sure would appreciate it.I'm only 42 and not ready to go now, but seems like because I'm low income that will be my fate!

I recently found out that I may have a thyroid disorder. Has anyone lost weight after medication?Over the last 8 or 9 months I have been gaining a little more weight than I ever have before. At about the same time my cycle got a little messed up too. I went to see my doctor and my thyroid screening came back abnormal. I have read that having thyroid problems can slow down and almost shut off a body's metabolism, so I'm thinking this would explaim my recent weight problems and inability to lost the weight. I was wondering if anyone who has a thyroid problem but is on medication has had similar weight issues and after the medication was able to lose the weight? how quickly did your body's metabolism bounce back after medication?

High thyroglobulin level?Recently, I had a thyroid biopsy on my thyroid nodule and was lucky enough to find no cancer cells present.
