High levels: Unlikely.
If you are indeed hypothyroid your doctor should be prescribing replacement of thyroxine.
What makes you ask about "androstenedione? Did an Endocrinologist ever discuss "andro" with you, and , if so, what advice and care is being given?

Hypothyroidism: With severe hypothyroidism, there could be changes in other hormones, and certainly it would be important to treat hypothyroidism. But there is not a significant relationship between thyroid and androstenedione.
