Hi everyone. I am located in the USA and there is like, little to no info on what I am looking for. I have been damned with a hyper thyroid and it is freakin miserable. Im trying to find out info on: 1.Does smoking cause thyroid problems? 2. Does smoking help with a hyper thyroid? That is where I would like to start. My TSH levels got critical a few weeks ago so if anyone in here has a questin for me, please please feel free to ask. I have learned a lot about what this is all about and have been told that my option is to "melt my thyroid with radiation and take pills for the rest of your life" ummmmmmmmmmmmmmm NO THANKS. Thanks!
