26 year-old woman is unable to stop Nordette (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) birth control pills after 8 yrs of use, due to heavy vaginal bleeding upon Nordette (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel) discontinuation.....?

What are goals?: The answer depends on your long term goals. If you do not want more children then an endometrial ablation is a good option. Assuming you do want more children then other options can be considered. Testing for PCOS and hypothyroidism could be done. Since you are missing periods followed by heavy bleeding PCOS seems likely. A sonohystogram should be done to see if a polyp or submucosal fibroid is present. If present then these can be surgically removed as an outpatient. If pregnancy is desired later on but not now a Mirena (levonorgestrel) IUD could be a great option. This often stops bleeding. If you are satisfied with the pill you could just continue ...Read more

23 yr-old, since puberty had facial "bloating" and other symptoms suggestive of thyroid or cortisol issues, but hasn't found effective treatment....?

Subclinical Hypothyroididsm: In a difficult case like yours I take into consideration ratio of T4 to TSH. If the ratio is less than 2.5 I have found out that patients have hypothyroidism. I would take small dose of synthyroid like 0.25mg for a month and recheck T4and TSH then decide whether to continue or add some more. This will depend on how you tolerate it and what's your T4 and TSH. Obviously you have compound problem in situation like this hypothyroidism needs to be corrected first. Let me know how you do. ...Read more

Intermittent tachycardia with blood pressure changes every few hours, looking like but is not hypoglycemia, needing diagnosis and treatment.....?

More information would help clarify how to solve the problem: The combination of recurrent tachycardia, "unstable" blood sugar and blood pressure, "all the symptoms of diabetes" but normal HgbA1c, "reactive hypoglycemia" and symptoms occurring every three hours, and atypical sleep apnea.

The differential diagnosis would include:
*Insulinoma (insulin secreting tumor) producing recurant hypoglycemia with tachycardia)
*Pheochrocytoma (adrenaline secreting tumor often of the adrenal glands)
*polyendocrine syndome encompassing either or both with possible hypophysitis with ovarian hypofunction or autoimmune oopheritis.

You may have been screened for insulinoma but remember that common screening test use monoclonal antibodies which will not pick up proinsulin.

To assist in diagnosis - providing more detail to the phrases in paragraph 1 including labs and then consultation with an endocrinologist would be an appropriate next step. ...Read more
