High Cortisol And Hypothyroidism
Hv Hoshimoto/hypothyroid. lost 135 lbs 5 yrs ago thru healthy eating & lots of excercise. I hv gained 35 lbs back. Cortisol high & cn tht cause gain?
Probably, but: with hypothyroidism, uncontrolled, you can have weight gain too easily, not necessarily the cortisol alone, and you are on prednisone, better follow up with your 1ry MD / Endocrinologist. Let me congratulate you for achieving this weight loss through exercise and diet, best wishes ...Read more
Hx of hashi's & sjogrens. Had cortisol checked b/c I've had fatigue and it came back high. Could this be due to hypothyroidism somehow still?
TSH level: 0, T3/T4 normal, cortisol thru the roof, lymphocytes elevated, BP: 160/100 and waking @ 3am. MD saying it's hypothyroid. I disagree. Help?
Cushing syndrome: Cortisol thru the roof is Cushing syndrome until ruled out. Our job is to figure out why this is happening. Taking steroids can do this but shouldn't affect thyroid. I'd be more concerned about pituitary adenoma which can cause both Cushing AND central hypothyroidism (usually low TSH means hyperthyroidism) but in case of space occupying lesion in pituitary, it may put out ACTH in favor of TSH. ...Read more
Dear sir, how do I should know the symptoms of low cortisol. Because it has same symptoms with hypothyroidism, which I have ?
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

Is a deficiency in vitamin d, hight cortisol and prolactin, too much LDL cholesterol a sign of hypothyroid ? Symptoms dry skin, astheny and low libido
Forgive my frankness: Your lack of vitamin d is probably the result of your getting too little in your diet and not getting enough sunlight. A spot cortisol is of little value except as a screen for addison's which i will assume is ruled out. Your high prolactin and low libido in a man with some serious acne like you're being treated for makes me suspect strongly that you have a prolactinoma. ...Read more
My cortisol levels are 2.2. i also have an underactive thyroid. im wondering should i be worried about my cortisol levels?
What hormone imbalances can cause excessive face/head sweating? I have underactive thyroid, kidney disease, & low cortisol levels. Can these diseases?
Hypothyroid and lipids, if tryglcerides are high what problems can this cause along with having hypothyroid?
Fem:age:39, hypothyroid 60mcg from past 13 years. Now my LDL :168, HDL :48, tot choles:238, is high LDL related to my hypothyroid?Can I diet, exercise?
It's complicated...: Assuming that one is interpreting correctly the lab results, the causes for low thyroid and high testosterone levels may be that the feedback chemicals and stimulating chemicals in the body are not working properly, so the normal amounts of thyroid and testosterone hormones are not present. Endocrinology can get complex. The doctor can check for viral infections, immune disorders, and tumors, too. ...Read more
