Dx hypothyroid in April, been on synthroid (thyroxine) 0.025mg x 3 months, but TSH went higher (~13) w/ normal ft4. Could viorele birth control cause high TSH?
What's the next dose: Don't think so. More likely it is because 0.025mg is the smallest Synthroid (thyroxine) pill. Synthroid (thyroxine) comes in about 12 sizes, from 0.025mg to 0.300mg. If one's doctor started her on 0.025mg and there is no drop in the TSH, one can ask at her follow-up visit (there is always a lot of follow-up until the proper dose is found and the TSH is normal) what the next dose is. ...Read more

having anxiety attacks, would lowering my estrogen to
30mcg instead of 35 help?
Not likely: The lowering of dose you describe is not significant. It is possible that the pills aggravate preexisting anxiety. It is unlikely to create anxiety from scratch. However, there are much lower doses than what you described. Ultra low-dose pills have 10 µg, while the NuvaRing (vaginal) is 35% lower than typical low dose 20 µg pills. It is worth a try. ...Read more

Had abnormal k/ light chain ratio six months ago; now ratio is wnl, but kappa level remains elevated three blood panels later. Thoughts?
I'm not sure I could: make much of a prognostic distinction between an abnormal kappa/light chain ratio and kappa elevation. Produced within plasma cells, heavy and light chains bind together to form immunoglobulins. Typically producing more light chains than required ,the plasma cells enter the blood as free light chains. The activity of myeloma/plasma cell growth is linked to the amount of free light chains in blood. ...Read more
