Fnp wants to raise my Synthroid (thyroxine) from 50 mcg to 75. I don't understand the mechanics behind this medicine. Can you explain?
TSH: Hi. Your FNP probably tested your TSH and found it to be high on your current dose of 50 mcg/day. TSH is the pituitary hormone that reflects thyroid status (assuming normal pituitary function); if TSH is hi, your pituitary is trying to push your thyroid to make more thyroid hormone, but your thyroid is damaged and can't. Therefore, you give more Synthroid (thyroxine) until the TSH is down in the normal range ...Read more

My friend has underactive thyroid medically due to iodine deficiency, she moved from Africa to the uk, would a diet high in iodine cure the illness?
Possibly : There are no tests to confirm iodine insufficiency. When iodine deficiency is seen in an entire population, it is best managed by ensuring that common foods that people eat contain sufficient levels of iodine.The primary complication of iodine therapy for iodine deficiency is development of hyperthyroidism. This may occur, especially in patients older than 45 years, because of autonomous nodules. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Does plexus slim have anything to do with changing thyroid function to lose weight? I have hyper thyroid disease. Is plexus safe to use.
No effect on thyroid: Plexus slim has a bunch of herbs, green tea, and other stuff which is basically harmless (probably will not do much good either). It should not interact with your thyroid. You should get your hyperthyroidism under control before attempting any significant weight loss. ...Read more
43y,fib 5cm,hvy periods,hypothyroid,now perinicious aneamia,unable to tolerate thyroxine,lot of heat in body, with PA thyroxine intolerance is there?
Thyroxine dosage: If you are hypothyroid and your TSH is elevated, you do need thyroxine. The dosage needed should be adjusted, measuring your blood level of free T4 and T3, (liothyronine) and giving only as much as is needed to lower your TSH to the normal level. This is independent of your pernicious anemia. You don't have thyroxine intolerance, but you may need a relatively smaller dose (the amount needed varies for each). ...Read more
I've read that stress can cause high prolactin , but i don't know the mechanism .Can you explain to me , doctors?
Minor mystery: I've known ever since residency that the mere stress of a venipuncture can cause an elevated "spot" prolactin, requiring that it be confirmed with suppression or other testing. Since prolactin is produced in response to factors from the brain over moments, it's in the brain wiring -- like the production during orgasm, nipple stimulation, or sleep. Anybody else know more? Thanks. ...Read more
Organ systems: Hi, the parathyroid glands, calcitriol, the skeleton, the kidneys, & the small intestine. Hard to explain in so few characters. PTH designed to keep blood calcium (Ca) UP; it can't prevent high blood calcium. The skeleton is the storage pool of body Ca. The kidney is now we get rid of Ca. The gut brings new Ca (dietary) into the system. PTH regulates calcitriol and Ca, and Ca & calitriol feedback ...Read more

Are naturopaths legitimate. One gave me adrenal gland extract to help with fatigue saying the extract will support my glands.Don't you just digest it?
Probably not helpful: True adrenal gland extract would contain some hormones including epinephrine which might escape digestion and increase your heart rate and blood pressure among other things. But most of it would be digested and have no effect. The "extract" they use is from untested, and unregulated sources and is unlikely to contain anything of value, let alone medical value. Save your money. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

Not to worry: If you have a thyroidectomy, they will give you thyroid replacement, and when adjusted properly, your thyroid level will be normal, and it will have no impact on weight. It is not hard to regulate. Has the thyroid nodule been biopsied? You may want to see an endocrinologist. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Is it common to have high liver enzymes (alt/ast) with untreated hyperthyroid? I've read conflicting info. Please help.
Not common.: This does not appear to have any consistent association with high alt/ast. Mainly this deals with low TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) and high t4/t3 thyroid hormones. This condition does have an effect on the cells in your body, and causes weight loss and diarrhea, so the liver might be working harder than normal and so some enzymes like alt/ast might be high. See your dr. To be sure. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Can you tell me about gerontology reverse or delayed aging, growth hormones, caloric restrictions?
Vague: Your question is rather vague, however, there is no fountain of youth. There are no legitimate studies that show an anti-aging effect of any supplement, including growth hormone (despite all the claims by alternative medicine doctors). People grow older and eventually die. Following a healthy lifestyle (keeping your weight down, exercising, eating fruits and vegetables) is the best way to max it ...Read more
