Hypothyroidism w/ elevated tpo antibodies, low t, adrenal insufficiency... Synthroid (thyroxine) & testosterone hasn't helped. Can I have an autoimmune disease?
You do have it: Elevated tpo antibodies confirms you have autoimmune thyroiditis. This is often triggered by environmental toxins ;/or infections. You will likely benefit from adding liothyronine to your regimen ; treating adrenal problems with cordyceps, rhodiola etc. I advise consulting with a holistic doc.

What is the significance of radioactive iodine scan in various throid diseases like myxedema, hashimoto's thyroiditis and graves disease?
Hot vs. cold nodule: Iodine uptake by thyroid tissue depends on functioning cells. The most common use for thyroid scan is to assess if a nodule is functional or not. A functional/hot nodule may cause hyperthyroidism but is not likely to be malignant. See this site for more info. http://www.nlm.nih.gov/medlineplus/ency/article/003829.htm. ...Read more
What can cause low TSH of its not a Thyroid or pituitary problem? 0.01 TSH T3 (liothyronine) and T4 free normal, graves and hasmitos negative
2 possibilities: Hi. First of all, Hashimoto's doesn't cause a suppressed TSH, and YES, your TSH is SUPPRESSED, not "low", because your free T4 and total T3 (liothyronine) are "normal". A low TSH (pituitary defect) would cause low free T4 and possibly/probably low T3 (liothyronine). The most likely is a "hot" thyroid nodule (autonomously hyper-functioning); second most likely would be a phase of subacute thyroiditis. Follow over time to tell. ...Read more

Yes, in some cases: Anytime there is chronic inflammation in a part of the body, that increases cell turnover and the risk of cancer is increased. This is true of most organ systems in the body. The relative risk depends on many things, such as the specific nature of the thyroid disorder, how it was/is treated and whether or not there is ongoing inflammation in the gland. I suggest discussing this with endocrinology. ...Read more
