Low T3, (liothyronine) but normal TSH and T4. Really tired, cold etc. Family hx of Hyprothyroidism.

Low T3, (liothyronine) but normal TSH and T4. Really tired, cold etc. Family hx of Hyprothyroidism.

Not hypothyroid: If your TSH and T4 are normal then your are NOT hypothyroid. Low T3 (liothyronine) can be due to non-thyroidal illnesses. This is because most of Thyroxine(T4) is made in the thyroid gland but 80% of circulating T3 (liothyronine) is made in peripheral tissues(liver,muscle etc) from the conversion of T4 to the more biologically active T3 (liothyronine). Thus illnesses affecting these other organs or tissue can cause a low T3 (liothyronine). ...Read more

25y/o male w/prolactinoma.Thyroid bloodwork normal.Doc says thyroid slightly swollen. Body temp 97.5 oral/feel cold a lot. How is hypothyroid diagnose?

Thyroid prolactin: Hypothyroid is diagnosed with thyroid blood tests. You would expect an elevated TSH and a low free t4. There is an interaction between thyroid and prolactin. If you are hypothyroid and have an elevated tsh, this will raise the prolactin; correcting the thyroid will normalize the prolactin. But this may not apply to you. The "swollen thyroid" may be separate. See your endocrinologist. ...Read more

Sinus cold..Taking 50mgall sertraline. What cold meds safe? Musinex or cold n sinis?

Depressed cold: Mucinex (guaifenesin) or afrin/neosynephrine nasal are largely considered safe. I tend to avoid oral decongestants as they cause ones heart to race - remember these are modified to make crystal meth. Be careful with afrin nasal if you have hypertension. Otherwise i hope you feel better. ...Read more

Anemia and vitamin: D deficiency. 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, you are deficient in iron and vitamin D and likely deficient in other nutrients as well. It is imperative that you see your doctor for a thorough evaluation. In meantime - 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

See details: Your thyroid function is normal so one needs to consider other causes for your symptoms. The gerd is likely unrelated. The possible causes are several and include physical issues as well as chronic depression. I would see a rheumatologist if your own doctor cannot find a specific cause. ...Read more

I have hypothyroidism, take synthroid (thyroxine). body temp is falling to 95 degrees and I am waking in cold sweats soaked. Have anemia and B12 deficient. ?

I have hypothyroidism, take synthroid (thyroxine). body temp is falling to 95 degrees and I am waking in cold sweats soaked. Have anemia and B12 deficient. ?

Possible relation: It is not unusual for patients who have hypothyroidism to have anemia. An autoimmune disease could cause the hypothyroidism and cause antibodies against the factors that make you absorb vitamin B12. The later is usually called pernicious anemia and usually needs vitamin B12 treatment to correct it. Cold intolerance can be caused by hypothryaoidism. Sweets unusual. You should see a doctor for this. ...Read more
