Re: Surgical Menopause and Thyroid function

Taylor, I am not having any symptoms of thyroid as you listed. I was feeling a bit fatigued some days, but other then that there were no symptoms. How high was your TSH when you started treatment? I also started a new job working with toddlers 5 days a week 8 hours a day....enough said....LOL.

Re: Surgical Menopause and Thyroid function

My thyroid levels were just below 5 when I started on medication. At the time the range was huge, but now they believe it should be below 2, or at the very least my endocrinologist believes so--and research I have found online.
Thyroid meds made a huge difference in my life, and I am soooo thankful for them! Good luck to you, and I hope you figure this out! Stress can certainly make matters worse! Toddlers 40 hours a week? That sounds like fun...tiring, but fun!

Re: Surgical Menopause and Thyroid function

I have been on Synthroid for about 10 yrs and have even seen an endocrinologist to get it stabilized. Just because your TSH is elevated doesn't mean that you are truly hypothyroid. If your T3 and T4 levels are normal, then you should be fine. Oh and I currently take Synthroid 125 mcg b.i.d.
As for any correlation between hysterectomy and hypothyroidism...who knows? No medical studies as of yet, I'm told. But for those of us who have a thyroid problem, we know that everything seems to affect it.
God bless.

Re: Surgical Menopause and Thyroid function

If your TSH is elevated and your T3 and T4 is fine then you should probably rule out Hashimoto's. It's just a blood test for the antibodies.

Re: Surgical Menopause and Thyroid function

My T3 and T4 were at the very low level of the normal spectrum. I am just surprised that they want to treat it when I really don't have any other symptoms. I will go back in December to get it rechecked.
