    I have been diagnosed with hyperthyroidism. I also have Cobalt Poisoning. The Dr said the thyroid could be caused by the cobalt but could be from the pacerone also. I have had other side effects also. The cobalt is a toxic heavy metal and will affect different people in different ways. One Dr says Cobalt, another Dr says pacerone. Pacerone is 0.05% affects hyperthyroid. So where is this coming from.
