Big picture: Cannot diagnose you in one paragraph. I would have to do a major work up. But possiblities include an infection such as lyme, toxicity of some kind including heavy metals, micronutrient deficiencies, etc. There is likely more than one thing going on. See a good endocrinologist if you have not done so yet. ...Read more

Could my adrenals and thyroid levels being low affect my high iron but low RBC levels?

High iron: Probably not. If you have been having low RBC levels you may have been given high doses of iron. If the low RBC is not iron deficiency anemia, then iron will not help. High iron in blood can cause many problems including accumulation in the liver causing hemachromatosis. ...Read more

Can low thyroid cause high cholesterol?

Can low thyroid cause high cholesterol?

Endocrine effects: Thyroid hormone helps us with metabolism. If your thyroid hormone is low, your body is unable to manage the lipids appropriately and this leads to high cholesterol of the 'bad types' (triglycerides, low density lipids and very low density lipids) and lowering the good cholesterol (high density lipid). Our bodies need to be firing on all cylinders! ...Read more

See below: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that.

Is weight loss using cytomel (liothyronine) for a low thyroid normal?

Is weight loss using cytomel (liothyronine) for a low thyroid normal?

No: You may be overdosed on cytomel (liothyronine). But also if your weight gain was previously due to underactive thyroid, and the weight loss on Cytomel (liothyronine) was a return to 'normal' weight, then it is not a problem. I prefer sustained release T3 over cytomel (liothyronine), or Armour Thyroid with T3 sr. ...Read more

What causes low white bloodcells (3.6)and low platelets (135)? Blood clotting, fasting sugar, thyroid, electrolytes, kidney and liver function are normal.

What causes low white bloodcells (3.6)and low platelets (135)? Blood clotting, fasting sugar, thyroid, electrolytes, kidney and liver function are normal.

These are: Lowish but not low enough to do anything but repeat the test. The issue is why were they drawn? Higher WBC counts indicate infection, low counts of one element ( red cell, white cell or platelets) can be a variety of things for each from lack of production to excess destruction, to crowding out by other things. Too much to detail here, repeat the test and call your doctor. ...Read more

Could hyperthyroidism mean low or high testosterone?

Hashimotos in remission. High TSH but normal free T3 (liothyronine) t4. Possible pituitary? Headaches nausea weight loss anxiety etc..

Hashimotos in remission. High TSH but normal free T3 (liothyronine) t4. Possible pituitary? Headaches nausea weight loss anxiety etc..

Get level checked,,: This sounds like symptoms of hyperthyroidism (weight loss, anxiety) your TSH may be high and free t3 (liothyronine) T4 normal, but it may be somewhat high for you so you might need to get your meds adjusted after another check of your thyroid levels (tsh is usually attempted to be kept at around 3.0 miu/l in hashimoto's). Good luck. ...Read more

TSH of 3.34, low iron and ferritin, pretty low iodine. T3 (liothyronine) and T4 on low end of lab normal. Mild symptoms of hypothyroid. Do I need meds?

TSH of 3.34, low iron and ferritin, pretty low iodine. T3 (liothyronine) and T4 on low end of lab normal. Mild symptoms of hypothyroid. Do I need meds?

Yes, iron: All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, given your TSH value you probably do not need thyroid medication. However, you are iron deficient and should take oral iron supplement and multivitamins. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more
