I have hypothyroidism and chronic stress/anxiety. Does low cortisol cause hypothyroidism?

I have hypothyroidism and chronic stress/anxiety. Does low cortisol cause hypothyroidism?

No: Cortisol is made by the adrenal glands whereas hypothyroidism refers to low levels of thyroid hormone from the thyroid gland. Having one does not cause the other. Chronic stress and anxiety also do not cause these disorders. Low cortisol (adrenal insufficiency) is a rare disorder, typically autoimmune related, and must be diagnosed correctly, not simply by a low cortisol level. ...Read more

With low TSH 0.02 but all normal thyroid and pituitary gland tests what could,be causing the suppressed tsh? Confused please help....

Depends: Hi. How long has your suppressed TSH been present? If more than a couple months, and your free T4 and T3 (liothyronine) are normal, it's most likely an autonomous hyper-functioning ("hot") nodule (or multiple hot nodules). ...Read more

I am have symptoms of low thyroid and adrenal fatigue.My total t3-66.1, cortisol-22.13, tsh&ft4-normal.Dr. Says no tx.Should i see an endo/2nd opinion?

Discuss with doctor: Agreed with dr. Lewy-weiss. You should talk to your current doctor about your concerns to hear the reason why he/she made the recommendation that he/she did. This person knows ur symptoms and history best to make this determination. In general, a mildly elevated cortisol is "transient" and most likely will be normal the next time it's checked. Don't jump to treatment without knowing the diagnosis. ...Read more

How quick does iodine and tyrosine work for weightloss with underactive thyroid?

How quick does iodine and tyrosine work for weightloss with underactive thyroid?

It doesn't : Thyroid hormone replacement with levothyroxine is the medication necessary to get thyroid function back to normal if hypothyroid. If you're iodine deficient that's a different story. If you're not iodine deficient and you take iodine, you may become hypothyroid. If thyroid function is normal then weight problem is not caused by an under active thyroid. ...Read more

What causes low blood level of dhea. I'm 25 female. Adrenal tumor maybe? I have high estrogen and chronic fatigue, body pain etc...

See endocrinologist: Dhea isn't a hormone we typically measure at random because it isn't as reliable as the longer 1/2 life of dheas. Likewise, we usually don't measure total estrogen as it isn't helpful. Dhea is most reliable when compared before and after IV acth during stim testing around other hormones. Adrenal insufficiency can't be identified with a random dhea. ...Read more

Will corticosteroids intensify the symptoms for hypothyroidism Like fatigue / headaches? I have all symptoms for low thyroid but bloodtest says negtiv

Will corticosteroids intensify the symptoms for hypothyroidism Like fatigue / headaches? I have all symptoms for low thyroid but bloodtest says negtiv

No: Corticosteroids Don't affect underactive thyroid status unless there is inflammation of the gland. There are several tests for thyroid status and if you're still concerned about your thyroid status, have a thyroidologist evaluate and advise you. Some conditions like anemia, low blood pressure, chronic infection, low iron levels, depression can mimic an underactive thyroid. These tests can be done also. ...Read more

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

Fatigue and weight gain. Blood work shows mild hypothyroidism (TSH slightly over 5) but no cold intolerance. Are my symptoms still related to thyroid?

Likely: The information you provided is consistent with thyroid deficiency and you should consult your doctor for replacement therapy. For good health - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Drink enough water daily, so that your urine is mostly colorless. 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, if you have sex. Get HPV vaccine. ...Read more

Hashimoto thyroidism, HGH bld pressure vitamin d sufficient, excess weight gain, feel tired all the time, would amphetamine boost my energy?

Yes, but: It would be potentially dangerous and possibly illegal depending upon the source of the amphetamines. Why put something in your body that is harmful and can potentially kill you? Also get off the armour thyroid, which is ground up pig tissue and have your doctor put you on brand name T4 replacement, which is better and safer. ...Read more

Can low thyroid+adrenal fatigue be treated in parallel?How much time(avg) needed to recover from mild adrenal fatigue?Suggest some helpful exercise.

Sure they can: How long to recover depends on how severe your issues are. The most important treatment principle in recovering from adrenal fatigue is to manage stress. Get enough sleep. Meditate and do yoga. Moderate exercise, and in fact, moderation in all things is the key to recovering from adrenal fatigue. Avoid sugar, alcohol and coffee. It may take 6 months to a year. ...Read more
