Question: Can sudden change in thyroid level over one or two months (due to pharmacy providing levoxyl of 1/3 required strength) affect measured p.s.a. level during this period of time?

Brief Answer:

Detailed Answer:
There is no published report in medical literature, to the best of my knowledge, that taking an inadvertent lower dose of levoxyl with consequent changes in blood thyroid hormone levels for a period of 1 to 2 months, will impact the measured PSA level

In general, there is no known direct correlation between thyroid and prostate

I am a 52 year old female who was diagnosed as hypothyroid 20 years ago. I have been treated with a daily dose of 150 mcg Levoxyl for almost that long. A new family doctor mistakently prescribed 100 mcg in March. I took this dose for a month before I realized the error. Bloodwork, at that time, showed a TSH of 26.5 and a Free T4 of .86. My dose was adjusted to 175 mcg, which I took for 3 months, when labs in July showed my TSH at .03 and Total T4 of 14.3. Since July, I have been back on the originial dose of 150 mcg and bloodwork just taken shows my TSH at .03 with a total T4 of 11.6 Previous labwork from 2004, 2006 and 2007 had my TSH with levels from .29 to 2.76 with a Free T4 of 1.11. My question is - am I hyper or hypo-thyroid? And, do you think staying on my current daily dose of 100 mcg is the proper treatment? I also take 60 mg of Prozac daily and 1 tablet of Lipitor as well as a multi-vitamin and calcium and D3 supplement.

I have been diagnosed by 3 different doctors with Hypo Thyroid beginning in 2006. My new dr. read my lab results to me today and said that my thyroid is fine now. Can a thyroid really repair itself? I had been on levoxyl .137 till 04/10 when finances made it impossible to refill the perscription. My lab numbers (done 3/23/11) are as follows:
TSH: 2.277, T4 7.7, Free T3 3.0, Free T4 0.89. Could you tell me if I am wrong in questioning this doctors diagnosis? Thanks
