Brief Answer:
Thyroid / Allergies

Detailed Answer:
I am sorry to note your problems with the allergies.

It is important to regulate your thyroid too.

I see you are on some thyroid medication and propranolol.

Is the name of the thyroid medication Methimazole?

Moreover, if the propranolol was started for thyroid-related condition, it can be gradually stopped under close medical supervision of your doctor, ager the thyroid is controlled in a stable way.

Regarding the allergies, it would be worthwhile seeing an Allergy specialist doctor.

When I see someone like you in my practice, I order the following tests in addition to a thorough physical examination:

Free T4
25 hydroxy Vitamin D

Hi Doctor
Yes is methimazole....I feel
That because of my severe allergies I don't feel
Myself with the tyroides I feel allergies are not
Helping with the regulation of my tyroid...
I wonder if it has something to do with it
Also I was told by my Endocrinologist Doctor that they will eventually
Take me out of the propranolol....
Thank you

Brief Answer:
Follow up

Detailed Answer:
I see.

I meant to type above that after controlling your thyroid properly the propranolol can be gradually tapered off.

It is unlikely the allergies are related to your thyroid or methimazole or propranolol.

Please consult with an Allergy/Immunology expert to determine the cause of your allergic symptoms

Hi Dr. Manoranjan, I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism in February of this year. I do have lab-work from 2009 showing a spiked level of TSH (my primary physician ignored it). In June, my TSH level finally reached a normal level of 1.6. It started at 86. However, my weight still fluctuates and I am gaining again. Is it possible that my TSH level has increased again? My endocrinologist also found two small nodules in June on my thyroid that are being looked at again soon. One was less than 1 cm in size all around (he isn t concerned) and the other is about 2 cm in size all around. I am 22 years old. Is it likely that these will shrink? Thank you, Kayla
