Dear XXXXXXX
Thanks for writing in. I have gone thru the reports. She is having primaey hypothyroidism. Hypothyroidism is a condition in which thyroid gland doesnot make enough thyroid hormone. In this condition TSH will be high & T3,T4 levels will be low. She will have to take lifelong thyroid hormone replacement. If she has already been on thyroxine treatment and still TSH is high it means either she is not compliant with the medicines or the dose is suboptimal. Another important thing is thyroid hormone has to be taken early morning & empty stomach. Hypothyroidism is a simple problem if treatment is taken properly & all the symptoms related to it will resolve once TSH comes to normal. So dont worry ask to start treatment as soon as possible if she hasnt so far. Once TSH is normal & maintained in that range it would not cause any oyher problem.
Hope this helps,

Esr may come after TSH has come to normal. Even if it doesnt no issues in becoming pregnant. She has to wait until TSH comes to normal before planning pregnancy. She can plan preg only when it has come back to normal. Thyroid hormone dosage will have to be increased if she becomes pregnant

My mother is 89 and on hospice care for advanced A.D. she has developed, over past year, an indentation on the top of her skull running left to right about three inches back from the front of the scalp. She has several large nodules on her thyroid, but her endocrinologist declined to pursue with needle biopsy or surgery due to her age and advanced disease, A.D. what do you think could be the cause of the changes in the top of her skull, indentation. She also has had significant loss in brain mass in past 12 years per MRI studies ren years apart.

My psychiatrist added 25 mcg of liothyronine, I started taking it Thursday 3-19, to be increased to 50 mcg after one week to augment my depression that has been resistent to other antidepressants. I don t have enough energy to leave the sofa. I also have panic disorder. I have gained about 35 lbs. in about nine months. I m nervous after reading some of the reviews. Should I be. How long can I safely take this medication. Will my thyroid stop producing the harmone naturally if I stay on this medication? When I come off will my thyroid be normal? I have very high hopes that this will increase my metabolism and give me the energy I m lacking and aid in my depression. Thank you
