I have bi-lateral knee implants, both at same time, One knee is causing trouble now.
Researching causes etc., I came across something I have not seen anywhere on hypothyroid websites. (not saying it isn't there).
DEGENERATION OF IMPLANTS CAN CAUSE HYPOTHYROIDISM. METALLOSIS IS THE NAME OF THE GAME.
Abrasion of the moving surfaces releases small particles of cobalt, chromium and other metals. One site I found said this can result in poor uptake of iodine.
Doees anyone on this site have experience of this? Is Thyroid U.K. aware? It appears it is quite rare.
