Have Hashimoto's disease. Weight gain, urinary frequency. High TSH, potassium and cortisol. Related to hypothyroidism?

Hi! I m a 39 yr old female with Hashimoto s disease. I ve recently gained excessive weight and feel tired, weak, depressed, unmotivated, anxious and for the 1st time in my life have HTN. Another symptom I ve had for years is urinary frequency. I just had lab work done and my TSH was high normal and my potassium and cortisol levels were high. My doctor increased my Synthroid and is requesting a 24 hr urine collection and another potassium test in 1 week. Just wondering if this is all related to my hypothyroidism or what else could it be??? Thanks!

Dear ma'm, hi! As you have already titrated your thyroxine replacement, also supplement vitamin D, vitamin B12, and calcium. please check your blood sugar as well for increase frequency of urination. recheck your thyroid values after 4 weeks and titrate the dose accordingly. Regards!
