67 yr-old with years of monthly blackouts, with a history of PVC's, adrenal insufficiency and hypothyroidism, looking for a definitive diagnosis.....?
Back to drawing board: Interesting case, cardiac wise an echo is needed to exclude structural heart disease, lv dysfunction, valve stenosis carotid dopplers to exclude bilateral carotid stenosis, a normal stress test raises the possibility of "balanced ischemia" where a normal stress is a false negative. May need to proceed with cardiac cath, a 67yo diabetic with pvcs and syncope may have a "high pretest probability" and as such, a negative stress test is not very helpful. Assuming echo and cath are unremarkable would then pursue from electrophysiology aspect, tilt table test and long term rhythm monitoring as out patient. Assuming no arrhythmias are uncovered then details of tilt result would dictate where to go next. Which is likely to assess autonomic function in a diabetic who may have autonomic dysfunction...this is all in the context of someone who is known to have adrenal insufficiency, on cortef but may need midodrine as well if tilt results showed vaso-depressor response. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers

It is quite possible you have subclinical hypothyroidism and need treatment (not synthroid, it is the most over rx'd ineffective med made). ...Read more
I have hypothyroid and have recently noticed stretch marks on my body. Could my levels be to low?
The thyroid makes thyroid hormone, the main one is t4, which is converted in other tissues to t3. An underactive thyroid makes too little thyroid hormone. You feel sluggish, bloated, constipated, cold. It is treated by taking replacement hormone levothyroxine. The thyroid also makes calcitonin, which is involved in calcium metabolism, but it is a weak hormone in ...Read more
Bilirubin is the potentially toxic product of heme metabolism. It is formed by breakdown of heme present in hemoglobin, myoglobin, cytochromes, catalase, peroxidase and tryptophan pyrrolase. Eighty percent of the daily bilirubin production comes from hemoglobin. It requires conversion to a water-soluble form before elimination from the body by ...Read more
