My gp diagnosed me with hashimotos. I am on Synthroid (thyroxine) and vit. D. I still suffer with severe symptoms. Should i go to an endo to treat me from here?
Possibly, although..: It's possible your remaining symptoms aren't related to your thyroid, but thyroid problems are often under-treated. Most people need to take liothyronine (t3) as well as synthroid (thyroxine) (t4).You may not feel good til your T3 is in the upper third of the normal range.Those with thyroid issues often have adrenal issues too.Hashimoto's is an autoimmune problem that may be caused by mercury etc.See comment:. ...Read more
I have hypo thyroid and its very difficult to do exercise as I have done a knee replacement. I am 76 kg. How can I lose weight? Pl help.
By Regular gradua --: Lly increasing exercises, within limits of discomfort as you recover from tkr. Eating regularly (in smaller amounts) ; eating healthy would help. For your hypoythyroidism, the thyroid hormone replacement med will help, as it will perk you to become active ; also your metabolism. These both will decrease your weight. See your pcp for the thyroid med. Good luck. ...Read more
I have been having symptoms of hypothyroidism but TSH and T4 labs show an over active thyroid. Doc wants to diagnose me with fibro but i don't agree.
Question?: You don't seem to have a question. You should tell us what the TSH and T4 levels were that shows over active thyroid. The symptoms associated with both hypothyroidism and hyperthyroidism are non specific (so are the symptoms of fibromyalgia). Having symptoms does not mean that you have the disease. Fibromyalgia should be diagnosed by a rheumatologist. ...Read more

I have 5 thyroid nodules, one is 3 CM and ultrasound said micro calcification. I am going to endo doc next week but i can't eat, sleep, am having panic attacks. Any words of encouragement to help me?
Hashitoxicosis: I am presuming you are hyperthyroid, but there is evidence of thyroid inflammation, or high tpo antibodies. If the thyroid is tender, nsaids or possibly Prednisone is used. Most endocrinologists would treat the hyperthyroidism with meds (methimazole, beta blockers) and then recommend either radioactive iodine or surgery. ...Read more

IM 38 F WITH CONGENTAIL HYPOTHYROID. I TAKE 488MCG OF LEVOTHYROXINE DAILY AND MY TSH IS STILL 102.4. I FEEL AWFUL.SHOULD I BE WORRIED.
Yes: Hi. Yes, that's very abnormal. I would like to see a free T4 & free T3 (liothyronine) and speak with you and examine you. Congenital hypothyroidism, treated from infancy, will prevent cretinism, and clearly you do not have cretinism. However, without exam and other labs and maybe MRI, need to consider possibility of thyroid hormone resistance or even a pituitary adenoma making TSH. See an endocrinologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I was diagnosed with graves' disease at 16, became pregnant and now I have a hypo thyroid , do I still have graves? Will i change back to hyper?
Treatment?: You failed to mention if you had received treatment for your overactive thyroid. Was the graves' disease confirmed by a specific blood test, or just a clinical diagnosis by your doctor. If you truly had graves' disease, you still have it, but it may have been treated or in remission. Hyperthyroidism can return at a later date, but the longer you go the less likely it becomes. ...Read more
I have hashi's and graves. My endo is 2 hrs away. Having pcp do routine tsh/t4. On med 1 yr. Should i ask to redo ct/ultrasound to check for changes?
Definitive treatment: Consider solving the problem permanently, with either radioactive iodine or surgery. Although you have a distance to travel to get this done, the problem will be solved and it will be easy for your pcp to give you synthroid (thyroxine) and monitor a tsh. If you decide on surgery, make sure it is a surgeon who does a lot of thyroids. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
I have hypothyroidism and trying to start an intense workout routine, is it safe to drink protein shakes with my condition? Thanks.
Yes, no problem: If your hypothyroidism is being properly treated you'll have normal levels of thyroid hormone & thus have the same levels of thyroid as a normal person & you can function normally. But many just on levothyroxine don't have adequate t3; ask your doctor to check your free t3; if not in the upper half of the normal range you may benefit from liothyronine (cytomel) as well. See http://bit.Ly/15k26u8. ...Read more
I am hypothyroid with TSH 6.27 and normal T3 (liothyronine) and T4 i want to kno i can conceive or not?
You should not.: Hypothyroidism of even a small degree is an unacceptable risk for pregnancy. You should not conceive until your numbers are stable and at the low end of normal tsh. Your dose should be bumped a little to prevent hypothyroidism during pregnancy. Your OB and endocrinologist should be watching your numbers carefully during pregnancy. ...Read more
