Thyroid: It often depends on when you take your medicine. I think it best to take thyroid medicine at bedtime. Give it a bit of time and your levels should be stable. Yes, they could be stable and high or stable and low. Once you have settled on that please see your doctor. ...Read more

I have hypocretin deficient narcolepsy which reduces TSH levels along with autoimmune hypothyroidism. Is the TSH test reliable to gauge my thyroid?
Not always: TSH is not always a reliable test, because it relies on what the pituitary thinks, but different tissues may have different sensitivity to thyroid hormone. In addition, some people make too much reverse T3 (liothyronine), (liothyronine) which can block the action of T3 (liothyronine).

Complex.: Pregnancy will raise thyroglobulin values, necessitating an increase in total thyroid production. If hashimoto's is present, thyroid function must be assessed by free T3 (liothyronine) values and TSH during pregnancy to avoid low thyroid. Many women will develop a goiter during pregnancy, but this is physiologic. But it is imperative to constantly moniter thyroid function of the mother, or the fetus can be hurt. ...Read more
Does subclinical hyperthyroid caused by graves always progress to hyperthyroid and is treatment necessary for subclinical hyperthyroid?
Watch carefully: Eventually, you will likely develop either overt hyperthyroidism, or you could possibly become hypothyroid. But not always, and this could take years. If you feel well, and your heart/bones/psyche/ etc are ok, you and your doctor (best: Endocrinologist) could elect to watch this and not treat now, but watch carefully. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Anti TPO antibodies: Can be elevated in some people with normal thyroids, and are markers of thyroiditis, depending on the levels and the follow up. Your symptoms don't point to a specific disease and can be common to other problems as well, your best bet is to see your doctor/endocrinologist for assessment and further management, best wishes ...Read more
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.

How are high levels of thyroid peroxidase antibody treated (125)tsh (317)ft4(74) is armour thyroid safe im ttc?
I have hypothyroidism with pos tpo, low-t, adrenal insufficiency. Have gotten worse on Synthroid (thyroxine) and trt. Does negative ANA rule out schmidt syndrome?
Not useful: ANA / anti-nuclear antibody isn't a marker for schmidt's. In fact, with your history, the question's perhaps moot. It's critical that you monitor your adrenal function -- especially since if you should for some reason get your thyroid replacement adjusted upward, you cover your possible underlying coexisting adrenal insufficiency. Not to do so can be catastrophic. You need a good endocrinologist. ...Read more
