Overactive thyroid &amp  cocain
HI, does the use of cocaine (snorted) +- ever weekend cause problems with a Overactive thyroid suffer?
does it result in the blood tests returing with high levels of antibodies?
the person i' m talking about is doing the herbal way of curing herself but her test results have not been good and is now thinking of going into the radioactive pill but wants to avoid that at any cost so if cocaine causes problems in the route to couring herself please let me know

Hi Nelly
Cocaine will not affect thyroid antibodies. It however has a lot of other unpleasant side effects of which one is a "saddle nose" caused by the septum of the nose falling in due to the cocaine ( google this - to see a picture)
