Could androstenedione levels be high in hypothyroidism?

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?
