A diagnosis of hypothyrotic syndrome or hypothyropic encephalopathy (HSE) or TSE can lead to a range of problems, including heart failure, dementia, kidney failure, and even death.
With so many of the conditions caused by TSE now covered under the Medicare and Medicaid programs, the costs associated with treating patients with HSE have skyrocketed in recent years.
But for those of us who don’t have the disease, it’s important to understand how HSE is diagnosed and what treatment options exist.
This article discusses the treatment options available for patients with TSE and why we believe they are the right choice.
Treatment Options for HSE Patients The primary treatment option for patients diagnosed with Hse includes the use of the standard TSE drug cocktail known as levothyroxine (LRT) for about 15 years, followed by an injection of an amino acid called T3.
While this is the standard treatment for the majority of Hse patients, the drug cocktail is not the only option available for some patients.
For patients with the autoimmune disorder autoantibodies, a different treatment protocol is also available, with a combination of T3 and an antibody called IgM antibodies that can trigger a range in symptoms.
There are also several combinations of medications known as TSH drops or TSH-agonists.
These medications can also be used for some people with Hce, but they are usually associated with serious side effects.
These include liver failure and death.
For patients with hypothyroids, there are a number of medications that can help relieve some of the symptoms of hypo, such as the antihistamines amitriptyline (Abilify) and dasatinib (Celexa).
While it is possible to treat hypothyrogenesis, hypothyrolithiasis, or hyperthyroidism with TSH injections, this is a complicated and expensive process.
To address these concerns, many health care providers are exploring alternative approaches, such a stem cell therapy or the use, to stimulate the production of new thyroid hormone in the body.
Hypothyroid Treatment Options for Non-TSE Patients While the standard HSE treatment is the treatment of choice for most patients, some people do not have a diagnosis of HSE and may not have symptoms at all.
The symptoms of Hce can vary from mild to severe.
Some people with mild Hce will not be able to tolerate the standard dose of TSE, and they may require multiple doses of Tse to treat them.
Others may require less Tse, or may require TSE as a temporary treatment.
One of the most common treatment options for patients without a diagnosis is the TSE cocktail, known as the LRT, with an injection known as an injectable T3 or an amino-acid known as Lactobacillus rhamnosus (LBS).
The LRT is a fairly straightforward process.
The TSE dose is changed over several days, then an LBS injection is taken over the course of about 24 hours.
Once a LBS is taken, the patient is given a standard dose to take daily.
LBSs are usually taken in combination with a thyroid hormone blocker called ritonavir, and can help prevent the body from producing thyroid hormone.
They are commonly used to treat certain cancers, but can also treat some of these other conditions as well.
The treatment protocol for patients who do not meet the diagnosis of TCE is different.
While patients with mild symptoms may require an injection every day, patients with severe symptoms will require multiple injections to treat their condition.
This is the approach that most health care professionals are taking with patients with a HSE diagnosis, as it is the only one that is safe and effective.
As you can see, there is a wide variety of treatment options, with LTS being the most commonly used combination for some, but it is not a treatment that is typically covered under Medicare or Medicaid.
What Does Hypothyroid Disease Look Like?
Symptoms of hypochyroidism include a general lack of appetite, fatigue, or weight loss.
These symptoms are common in people who have a genetic condition called autoantihistamines or hyperlipidemia.
In people with Tse or HSE, the immune system attacks the thyroid, leading to a drop in the levels of thyroid hormone, causing symptoms such as low energy and a loss of appetite.
Hence, the symptoms are more severe, and the symptoms may last for several months to a year, even years.
The overall symptoms include fatigue, loss of energy, and weight loss, and a range can include mild to serious symptoms.
Some symptoms may be so mild that they may be ignored or dismissed.
Others, such chronic fatigue, fatigue with aching joints, and neck pain, are more common.
