Tsh levels WAY high & synthroid help?

Tsh levels WAY high & synthroid help? Topic: Case sensitive sorting
June 20, 2019 / By Christin
Question: Been on synthroid for years at 25 MCG, this kept my TSH at about 5-8. 2 years ago my TSH suddendly started going up, med slowly increased. 1 year ago, my TSH was 55.772, T4 6.2, t3uptake 29, Free thyroxine index 7.8 so everything was normal except my TSH, the doctor upped ,my synthroid to 100mcg 1 year ago. Today the TSH is higher again at 73.224, but the T3, t3 uptake & free index are all perfecty normal. He wants to leave my synthroid at 100 mcg again this year since the actual thyroid is normal. I told him I would really like to slowly increase it to 112mcg & then probably 125mcg in 3 months if the TSH was still high. I am lucky sort of as I do have dry skin in cold weather, dry hair, (But normally dry, course & curly all my life). Energy is ok as long as I do get 8 hours sleep, any less sleep & I am a basket case. Stress & being rushed & hurried & I get really anxious & to the point of panic, dizzy etc. Do I need to get a second opinion? Or is my synthroid level ok still? If your Tsh is high, your thyroid is usually low. THS is thyroid stimulation hormone. Tsh is produced to try to make your thyroid stimulated to produce more. Thyroid test numbers are confusing as a high tsh means low thyroid for this reason.

I used to take synthroid and now I'm not taking any at all. It has taken me a lot of time to get to this point. Synthroid is very bad for you and is the doctor's easy way out of a problem they just don't want to spend time figuring out. It leaves you with a thyroid that is being slowly killed by the synthroid, dependent upon it for the rest of your life, and chained to the doctor each year who loves seeing you walk through his door and looking at your blood samples. There are many reasons thyroid glands slow down and you need to go to a real doctor that will take the time to figure it out and not some 15 minute whiz bang guy that just wants your money and does not care about what that drug is doing to you. The TSH test is just not sensitive enough and is only the tip of the ice berg tests that need to be done to figure out what is really going on with you. I found out that I was simply deficient in iodine that was causing my problem and when I fixed that, I fixed my thyroid. But the Synthroid did a lot of damage and it took several months to fix the problem once I figured it out. Additionally, I had a severe head trauma that blocked my 20th meridian that was reflexing to my thyroid, keeping the energy level low. I fixed that by clearing my lymph system with herbs and my 20th meridian cleared with very special clay packs. The reason you are a "basket case" when you don't get sleep is because your body needs to get at least 5 hours of uninterrupted sleep to allow you to go into a REM sleep. Without getting to the REM state, your adrenal glands do not get recharged and your energy level the next day will be greatly affected, and you will feel dizzy if you stand up quickly. I also suggest STRONGLY, that you test yourself for iodine deficiency. Paint a patch of "tincture of iodine" on your chest about the size of a golf ball. If the stain goes away before 24 hours, you are deficient. The thyroid only uses about 3% of the iodine you take in and the rest of your organs use the rest, including your skin. Anything with Fluoride of any kind in it will make you deficient in iodine. ALL soy products that are not fermented will slow your thyroid greatly. Look at your literature in the synthroid packet and you will see they tell you to avoid SOY! I believe you should find a doctor that cares and dump the bozo you are going to. good luck to you.

You need a different doctor. Once on thyroid treatment, the morning TSH should be below 2.0. Keeping you at a TSH of 5-8 is poor care. The other tests your doctor did don't tell much. What you need is a free t4 and free t3. These tests show the actual amount of these hormones avaiable for use. A TSH over 2.0 could be causing elevated cholesterol levels and heart problemsdone the road. Links below

Definitely get a second opinion. Your TSH is way too high! Once you get your TSH in tact, you will have more energy and feel a LOT better. Find an endocrinologist that has good experience with thyroid issues. Many endocrinologists treat diabetes patients and are just so/so when it comes to thyroid. Also, get a copy of your records and take them with you to your second opinion appointment.

This makes no sense. If you have a high TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone), then you should have plenty of hormone in your blood. Synthroid is what y ou take to increase the thyroid. If you are allready high in hormone, why would you want to increase it? If you have too much Synthroid in your system you will feel panicy/wired-like too much coffee/very agitated/ unable to sleep or relax. Get to an endocrinologist or at the very least an internalist.
