Hives, Thyroid, and Yeast

I found this on dermatology.about.com:

"Chronic hives are also associated with thyroid disease - hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism. An infection with the yeast, Candida albicans, is also associated with chronic hives. All of these conditions should be ruled out. Skin testing is of variable benefit since people with hives tend to react positively to most agents tested for."

My son had hives on and off until he started thyroid medication for low thyroid (hypothyroid) and the biofilm protocol for yeast. His TSH wasn't high on the typical TSH test, but Dr. Kellman did the TRH stimulation test, an older test. Yeast overgrowth also interferes with thyroid receptors, according to Dr. Morton Teich, so the conditions are not unrelated. Anecdotally, a mother I know, from India, told me that in India, if the mother is hypothyroid and her child displays symptoms of low thyroid they often prescribe a low dosage of thyroid medication for the child. After hearing this from my friend, I looked into whether my children were suffering from a thyroid problem.

Hives said...

Hives is also called nettle rash or Utricaria. It is a skin disease which is very itchy with red patches. It is caused by flea bites, usually from fleas on domesticated animals like cats, dogs or wearing ill fitting clothes or reaction to certain animal forms or excessive sweating. One can get relief from itchiness by applying calamine lotion, aloe Vera based creams, ice packs and frequent showering, swimming in pool will help a lot.

The first month I started taking bovine capsules , I started seeing results in my body and major improvements in my attitude as well due to my weight loss. I would recommend desiccated bovine thyroid capsules to anybody who is having difficulty losing weight.
