FAQ

Can a Metal-on-Metal Hip Replacement Cause Thyroid Dysfunction?

Has your doctor recently discovered that you might have a problem with your thyroid function? It is not uncommon to have an imbalance of thyroid levels. However, there are some issues with the thyroid are very concerning.

Some individuals complain of problems with their thyroid, but many will just have complaints of bothersome symptoms that have not yet been tied to the thyroid. There are many things that can be the cause of thyroid dysfunction in people of all ages.

Let’s talk about some of the causes, types, symptoms and treatments available for someone with a thyroid dysfunction. Then we can examine if metal-on-metal hip replacements really can cause problems with your thyroid function or not.

Types and Symptoms of Thyroid Dysfunction

There are two major types of thyroid problems. Hypothyroidism is when you have decreased thyroid function. Hyperthyroidism is when you have increased (abnormal) thyroid function. Let’s take a look at the symptoms of some of these conditions.

Hypothyroidism symptoms include:

•    Feel weak
•    Fatigue
•    Symptoms of depression
•    Dry skin
•    Nails that are brittle
•    Constipation
•    Feeling cold or inability to stand the cold
•    Problems with memory
•    Heavy menstrual periods

Hyperthyroidism symptoms include:

•    Feeling of nervousness
•    Feel moody
•    Feel tired
•    Shaky hands
•    Increased heart rate
•    Problems breathing normally
•    Sweaty skin
•    More than normal bowel movements
•    Unexplained weight loss

Treatment for Thyroid Conditions

If you have hypothyroidism, the treatments usually involve supplementing your hormone function with synthetic thyroid hormone medication. Hyperthyroidism is treated with pills they call beta-blockers. These can help you feel more normal until the doctor is sure what your best course of treatment would be in the long run.

You will be monitored under your doctor to make sure your treatments are working properly so that your levels can remain normal. If your doctor discovers that you have thyroid cancer, you will most likely need to have the thyroid removed. Once removed, you will need to be on synthetic thyroid hormones indefinitely.

Can a Metal-on-Metal Hip Implant Cause Thyroid Problems?

Since there has been recent research stating that metal particles can wear off of a metal-on-metal implant, some have thought it can have an affect on the thyroid function. There are many causes for thyroid conditions. No matter what your cause is, it is important to seek the help of an endocrinologist if you have abnormal thyroid levels. They can help you determine what the cause is and whether or not it was due to your metal-on-metal hip implant.
