Hypothyroidism w/ elevated tpo antibodies, low t, adrenal insufficiency... Synthroid (thyroxine) & testosterone hasn't helped. Can I have an autoimmune disease?
You do have it: Elevated tpo antibodies confirms you have autoimmune thyroiditis. This is often triggered by environmental toxins ;/or infections. You will likely benefit from adding liothyronine to your regimen ; treating adrenal problems with cordyceps, rhodiola etc. I advise consulting with a holistic doc.

Very tired, mood swings & heavy irreg. periods TSH 1.46. FT4 1. Antithytoid peroxidase 46.1. cortisol 9. ACTH 9.9. DX hashi's no TX until hypo?
What can this be? CD 8 and CD 39 Low estro (lessthan20), low prog (less than range), normal testos. LH:FSH (8:6). Hypothalmic? PRL normal. Have PCOS.
Anovulation: Since you have no progesterone, you are not ovulating at this time. Your LH and FSH levels are not consistent with a hypothalamic disorder. The LH to FSH ratio is not what you see in classic PCOS, but that does not in itself throughout the disease. If you are trying to get pregnant, you may need to see a fertility specialist for ovulation induction. ...Read more
Thyroid levels: You do not supply the normal range for these values, but they all appear to be normal. In most US labs, the normal range of TSH is about 0.4 to 4.0, so that value of 0.99 is normal. ...Read more
Thyroid numbers?: You're on thyroid hormone replacement, which is good, but what are your numbers? Does your blood testing indicate that you have enough thyroid hormone replacement to help your body work as it should? You will have trouble losing weight if your thyroid function remains slow. ...Read more

Dx hypothyroid in April, been on synthroid (thyroxine) 0.025mg x 3 months, but TSH went higher (~13) w/ normal ft4. Could viorele birth control cause high TSH?
What's the next dose: Don't think so. More likely it is because 0.025mg is the smallest Synthroid (thyroxine) pill. Synthroid (thyroxine) comes in about 12 sizes, from 0.025mg to 0.300mg. If one's doctor started her on 0.025mg and there is no drop in the TSH, one can ask at her follow-up visit (there is always a lot of follow-up until the proper dose is found and the TSH is normal) what the next dose is. ...Read more
Feeling unwell, Blood Tests T3 (liothyronine) 1.13, T4 11.18,T4 Free1.63, TSH <0.005, Prolactin 25.37 Luteinizing hormone 4.72.I am hypothyroid, so why low TSH??
Have enlarged heterogeneous thyroid, TSH was normal.Suffering w/hypothyroid symptoms.Endocrinologist said "impossible" to be thyroid.Need 2nd opinion?
Prob normal: Remember, diseases cause symptoms, but having a variety of symptoms doesn't necessarily mean you have that disease. If your testing was normal, then you need to look for another cause to your problems. However, make sure your lab was not only "normal", but appropriate for your age group, and those numbers may be slight different. Consider endocrinologist if desired. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Possibly.: These along with low t4, free t4, and high TSH would mean hypothyroidism. But a low TSH would possibly mean a hypothalamus/pituitary problem. If any of the thyroid values/tsh are not low, then it might be wise to keep following before having a diagnosis made and therapy done. Check with your doctor to be sure. ...Read more
Both are low?: If both TSH (from the pituitary gland in the brain) and free T4 are low, it may be that the pituitary gland is not secreting enough TSH to stimulate the thyroid gland to make more t4. Then endocrinologist can do additional tests to see if this is indeed the case. ...Read more
