So my Cardiologist says my ef is actually 65 and my holter came back clean. But no one can say why I'm having pvcs randomly! I'm hypothyroid but on 75?
PVCs: Perhaps the commonest cause for PVCs is "we don't know". If you have a cardiologist and that Dr. isn't particularly concerned after evaluating you, likely you shouldn't be either. ...Read more

I have chronic fatigue, heart pvc's, and anxiety, like my dad who also has hypothyroidism. Could my level in normal range actually be low for me?
Not likely: Anxiety and pvcs would be worsened by taking extra thyroid hormone. Also, a clinical trial some years ago showed that giving thyroxine to people with thyroid tests in the normal range increased the risk of osteoporosis and death. The combination of Cymbalta and Lexapro may cause symptoms of fatigue and anxiety, and may lead to something called the serotonin syndrome which can be very dangerous. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
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

Inadequate hormones: The thyroid creates a hormone that regulates metabolism in the body. It works on a number of different organ systems, and is essential to proper body function. If the thyroid stops producing the hormone, you become hypothyroid. This can happen by antibody destruction, direct destruction of the thyroid gland, removal (tumor), or interruption of the stimulating signal from the brain. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it possible to have hypothyroid and after taking meds for it then it can be corrected and no meds needed after that? Or life long meds?
The thyroid makes thyroid hormone, the main one is t4, which is converted in other tissues to t3. An underactive thyroid makes too little thyroid hormone. You feel sluggish, bloated, constipated, cold. It is treated by taking replacement hormone levothyroxine. The thyroid also makes calcitonin, which is involved in calcium metabolism, but it is a weak hormone in ...Read more
