I have hypothyroidism, take synthroid. 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 moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Ask your dr. again: Is your dr. Prescribing tecta for h. Pylori? Tecta is a proton pump inhibitor which can worsen B12 absorption, so you may not need it.

I'm 60/F, have low D3, B12, cervical spondylosis, osteoporosis, mild scoliosis, possible hypothyroid (TSH=6.8). What's causing me vertigo sometimes?
Well to start with: You must correct the TSH elevation. Clearly, hypothyroidism may be manifesting in you at least as dizziness or vertigo. Also, what are your B12 levels. You said they were low....but there is also a criterion for actually being B12 DEFICIENT even low it appears by laboratory standards you are simply low. That could be another reason. And a 3rd possibility would be positional vertigo. More info. ...Read more

67 yr-old with years of monthly blackouts, with a history of PVC's, adrenal insufficiency and hypothyroidism, looking for a definitive diagnosis.....?
Back to drawing board: Interesting case, cardiac wise an echo is needed to exclude structural heart disease, lv dysfunction, valve stenosis carotid dopplers to exclude bilateral carotid stenosis, a normal stress test raises the possibility of "balanced ischemia" where a normal stress is a false negative. May need to proceed with cardiac cath, a 67yo diabetic with pvcs and syncope may have a "high pretest probability" and as such, a negative stress test is not very helpful. Assuming echo and cath are unremarkable would then pursue from electrophysiology aspect, tilt table test and long term rhythm monitoring as out patient. Assuming no arrhythmias are uncovered then details of tilt result would dictate where to go next. Which is likely to assess autonomic function in a diabetic who may have autonomic dysfunction...this is all in the context of someone who is known to have adrenal insufficiency, on cortef but may need midodrine as well if tilt results showed vaso-depressor response. ...Read moreSee 2 more doctor answers
