If TSH level is 4.5 with thyroid nodules could that be reason my hair is falling out, dry skin and dry eye?

If TSH level is 4.5 with thyroid nodules could that be reason my hair is falling out, dry skin and dry eye?

See an endocrinologi: Your TSH is slightly high. As people get older they tend to have higher TSH but may not have low thyroid. It is not certain if there is benefit to taking thyroid pills for this. You need also to determine if the nodules are malignant. If you take thyroid, the generic is cheaper and just as effective. An endocrinologist is what you need. ...Read more

Would having thyroid nodules and an enlarged thyroid gland cause me extreme tiredness, I have not got an over or under active thyroid?

Anyone of these can be cause for day time fatigue and need attent. ...Read more

See them and ask what this means in your case and what should be done next. Lab results never occur in isolation. They occur in people, and the whole person has to be considered when making a diagnosis and treatment plan. Best wishes! ...Read more

Have thyroid nodule 20 yrs with many U/S and FNA but U/S now shows scattered echogenic foci-calcify with increased vascularity - what does this mean?

Consistency: A lot depends on what has happened to this nodule over the last 20 yr. Any growth? Is the calcification new? The best scenario is where the US and FNA are all being done by the same person; sometimes the "reports" say different things when it is really not changed. Often the best person is an Endocrinologist who does this, rather than a radiologist who is not a thyroid specialist. ...Read more
