Thyroid and vaccines
I am currently Hyperthyroid with a diagnosis of HAshimoto's disease and Grave's Disease.  As far as vaccinating for Swine flu what is the general consensus?

How do you have Hashi and Graves at the same time?  

I plan on getting my swine flu shot. I have Hashi.

Take care...

I assume from reading here that it is not uncommon.  My TSI is 799 normal < 150 and my microsomal antibody was 107.8 normal < 5.0...I was told that I had Hashis at an appointment in Jan and then a new endocrin put me on Tapazole in july when the TSI numbers came out.  I was shocked but only talked to the nurse who seemed dumbfounded by my question "how can this be?" --I learned you can be both here, but I am still questioning the results when I see him next time.

Hashi people swing from hypo to hyper at the beginning stages. Is that what you mean? Or are you confusing Graves with Goiter?

Thanks,

No I have graves--High TSI levels incidate Graves and that is what I was last given as a diagnosis "over the phone" and put on Tapazole.  I have never swung either.  Always had hyper TSH levels.

Huh, weird, maybe this is a Graves thing. I don't know enough about Graves.
