Brief Answer:
About levothyroxine dose;

Detailed Answer:
Hello and thank you for asking!
I have gone carefully through your concern.
The hormonal level you reported is within normal ranges under levothyroxine treatment.
The dose ( I suppose 100 mcg because 1 mcg does not exist) is the right one and you should continue with this if no other pathologies are present.
You didn't mention why your treating physician is concerned for pituitary issues?
Is Hashimoto thyroiditis confirmed 20 years ago before starting treatment?
Will be a pleasure to help you further.
Kind regards,
Dr.Mirjeta

My husband is 3 months post op Thyroid Cancer. Thyroid was removed as well as 6 metastatic nodes. 148 mc Radioactive Iodine was given & I131 scan showed only residual tissue. He currently takes his synthroid 150 mg. But it has been ineffective. 6 weeks ago he had an onset of pain in tailbone. Which has progressed to severe pain & inability to stand or walk correctly. Along with this his RBC Hemocrit & Hemoglobin levels are low, but his Platelet function times are elevated. He has had several CBC W/DIFF labs. His PFT has been up to 206- 247 ranges & his PFT EPI up to 179. They are consistently high with the exception of 2 different times being normal out of 6 draws. His ENT just removed tonsils with bleeding complications. He believes something is wrong & is sending him to Hematology at Vanderbilt. My question is could the bone pain be related to his levels? Lukemia? Or is that not usual or is it two separate issues such as a blood disorder and possibly a discount issue?

Hi, I am taking Bystolic and amlodipine for hight blood pressure and synthroid for Hyshimotos Throiditus and my skin has become so thin that my arms are so brused that it looks like someone is mistreating me. (No one is). I bruse at the slightest touch and if just slightly scraped I bleed like a stuck pig. Could some of this be caused by one of my medications?

I was taking 0.025mg synthroid for a few years, having my blood checked every three months and there was never a problem. For the past 6 months i have been out of my country and only taking half of my synthroid daily and have not had thyroid levels checked for same amount of time. In the past week and a half I have noticed my fingertips are wrinkly with loss of volume in some of the fingers. They get a little better but then wrinkly again. What is this caused from?

I have been through about 12 doctors all with different opinions. most recently they were testing me for MS which I have been tested for in the past and they then said maybe it was lupus. I have severe fatigue, hair loss, joint pain to the point the i feel like i cannot move another foot. I am young only 45 and in pretty good heath. I stay very active and eat mostly fresh foods. I do not drink only maybe wine at a wedding. My most recent blood test came back with a ALT of 43 and TSH, 3rd generation of 0.04 also showing a creatine level of 0.48 I also have a Sjogren s antibody SS-B of 5.8. I have been told in the past that I have a thyroid problem and for over a year now have taken synthroid for it. I am getting very frustrated that no one can tell me what is wrong with me. I have boughts of slurred speach, hair loss, joint pain, unexplained swelling in the joints, rashes random itching. weight gain that is really unexplained. vision issues better on some days than others, I take Nexium for ulcers and most of the time it keeps them in check but i also have gastro problems and now have resided to the gastric disturbances as normal. I have been also told that I have severe metabolic imbalance and am Vitamin D and calcium dificient. I had a bone density done and it came back with the results of an 87 year old woman. HELP
