Can A Thyroid Problem Stop Period
Hi my TSH 3rd generation result is 100. I have always been overweight and have recently gained a little bit of weight. Have irregular periods and recently there has been issue of constipation.
It seems I would fall into the category of hypo-thyroidism.
I'm not sure what: ..units are being used to measure your TSH level, but 100??? In the USA, the standard value that labs use to measure TSH is microunits/ml and normal values range from 0.4 to 4.0 microunits/ml. If you're TSH is 100 mcu/ml, then definitely something's wrong with your thyroid or the hormones regulating it. This test result requires follow up and either clarification or treatment. ...Read more

The : The Armour Thyroid screws up the tests and makes treatment very challenging and has many drawbacks. See my blog post below. There are many causes of fatigue, tiredness and difficulty losing weight. No endocrinologist or experts recommend checking reverse t3, its silly and a waste of money. These tests suggest that you are getting too much thyroid hormone.
