Thyroid Overview

The thyroid gland, or simply the thyroid /θard/, is an endocrine gland in the neck, consisting of two lobes connected by an isthmus. It is found at the front of the neck, below the Adam's apple. The thyroid gland secretes thyroid hormones, which primarily influence the metabolic rate and protein synthesis. The hormones also have many other effects including those on development. The thyroid hormones triiodothyronine (T3) and thyroxine (T4) are created from iodine and tyrosine. The thyroi...

Thyroid question

I started taking levo....about 3 years ago. Off and on really, i am terribly bad at taking medication. In February I stopped taking my levo (Don't ask me why but I couldnt tell you), fast forward to last week when I go in for my doctors follow up (not all due to the thyroid), I didn't say anything to the doctor about not taking the levo and proceeded to have my blood work done. I get the call a couple days later that my thyroid levels were perfect. So i tell them that cant be right and we should retest, I retest and the same results, perfect. How can they be perfect when I haven't taken my meds in 5 months? So either i was taking it before and not needing it or my body just happened to heal itself? Doubtful. Anyone have any insight? ## There are a few reasons why such things...

bladder problems
3 Replies RSS
Can anyone help......I have been diagnosed with underactive thyroid and have a real problem with my bladder.Keep needing to urinate which is so exhausting and scares me if it doesnt go away has anyone had any experience of this.If so did the levothyroxine help? ## Frequent urination can be a symptom of Hypothyroidism, so the Levothyroxine might help, once your thyroid hormones are better balanced. The common side effects to the medication may include: nausea, fatigue, weight and appetite changes. Learn more: Have you consulted with your doctor about the frequent urination? There are some medications available that may help, in the meantime. It is also a condition that you will want to keep an eye on and if it doesn't improve, be certain to let your doctor know. ## yes im the same wi...

thyronorm and pregnancy
Post a Reply
Hi, I am 8 weeks pregnant. My TSH thyroid level has come 308.2 in blood test during 6th week which is very high as compared to normal levels. I was not having any symptoms before conceiving so never consulted doctor. we got to know about TSH level only during blood test when I got pregnant..and it came 308.2 , then we retested it again on empty stomach but it came 332..Doctor was wondering how i conceived at such high level of TSH. We have then consulted another physician .Doctor has prescribed 100 mcg thyronorm tablets (which I am taking everday on empty stomach ) and suggested for retest after 1 month. I am really scared, can high level of TSH can be a risk to pregnancy/ it can affect my baby or it can be controlled safely. can you please advise and share your opinions.

swelling in legs and feet levothyroxine
104 Replies RSS
I just started taking Levothyroxine 2 wks ago my legs and feet are swollen so bad by nite I can barley walk. They go down a little at nite but swell back. I am taking 25mcg and I am afraid to continue taking this med. Has any one else had this problem? ## Have you contacted your doctor? It sounds like you might be having a bad reaction to this medication and it may not be the right one for you, or may be too high of a dosage. Generally, the symptoms of a dosage being too high will start to manifest 6 days or so, after you start taking it and this type of fluid retention can be one of them and there is a chance that it could lead to congestive heart failure, if that's what's causing it and it isn't rectified. You should really contact your doctor immediately. ## I am on medic...

Levothyroxine side effects
486 Replies RSS
I was recently diagnosed with an underactive thyroid. I have been taking levothyroxine for almost two weeks. For the last four or five days I have had a weird feeling. It is hard to explain. I don't really feel dizzy but I get a strange feeling in my head. I guess you would describe it as a head rush. Has anyone else had this feeling and will it go away as my body adjusts to the levothyroxine? ## yes i would get that every morning after i took my pills and drank coffee. I think its inmortant to eat a little over an hour after to avoid the dizziness. It does go away though. ## Levothyroxine Info and Side effects Click Here ## my pharmactist changed my thyroid pills because my insurance doesn't cover my other ones. I am cold all the time again and i am dizzy. I came home from work...

I have been taking synthroid for about a year now. I started at 25mcg and am now taking 175mcg. My problem is, i still have racing pulse and headaches, they were infrequent, but have become more frequent in the past week or so, I also have sweat episodes. I take tylenol pm to help me sleep, could this affect the synthroid. Generally I just feel ill and nauseas with racing pulse for the past week or so. I would appreciate any feedback....thank you ## You might want to talk to your Doc about taking a different type of medication like Westhroid or Naturthroid these are the natural types of thyroid meds that work very well for some people. Remember some medicine that works well for some people don't always work well for others, if the medicine ur taking is not working for u then its tim...
