Does Hypothyroidism Cause Moles
TSH 0.216, T4 1.6, Take synthroid every 3 mths for about 8 yrs. I have just noticed an increase of moles on back and round neck. Bc of hypothyroid?
Moles thyroid: Pt notes thyroid tests and increased miles on back. Asks are they related. ANS: No. But show miles to your Reg Dr. Next visit.
Likely complex...: Thyroid hormones have complex interactions with many parts of the whole body. Hypothyroidism can lead to hyponatremia or to both SIADH + hyponatremia. Being low in thyroid hormone can somehow lead to the release of anti-diuretic hormone from the pituitary gland, so one gets SIADH and the accompanying excess water in the body.
Hypothyroidism: Hypothyroidism can slow down your pulse rate and your blood supply. If you are already being treated for hypothyroidism make an early appointment to see your doctor and change your thyroid dose
Why ask?: You already have PCOS which is a common cause of hirsutism. You are already taking 2 meds which are likely to help. The ginette 35 might al;so help. Hypothyroid often causes loss of scalp hair but is not a common cause of hirsutism. You neglected to mention the doses. This can be important. Have you been checked for thyroid? You do not list any med related to thyroid.See 2 more doctor answers
Possible: There are man causes of pitting edema. Most associated with capillary leakage of some sort in the extremities. This is often associated with cardiac dysfunction. However, there are many causes. Hypothyroidism in severe form is one of these causes. However, for specific information consult your doctor for more details.
Uncommonly yes: I'm not sure WHICH medication you're referring to but if we just hazard a guess and say, "LEVOTHYROXINE" then, in rare instances this medication has been reported to cause mental depression in patients. Typically though, when used in therapeutic doses to treat hypothyroidism one usually experiences a bit of a lift in mood (if they've been truly HYPO-thyroid) for some time.See 1 more doctor answer
No one thing: No one thing would cause both of the conditions listed. However, in women, hypothyroidism can cause long heavy periods, which, over time, could lead to iron deficiency. Too many platelets is a common finding in iron deficiency anemia, and so it could be indirectly related to the hypothyroidism. However, too many platelets can have other causes as well, so it's best to ask your own doc about this.
