Cool Told to ask K9Mom?

Hi someone said to repost in hopes you would see this.

I was told I was "hyper". Also, I found out I have polycystic ovaries.

Do you happen to know if these things are related at all? If the ovary thing is a symptom of my thyroid problems or are they usually 2 different things..?
Maybe its not my thyroid, but more a pituitary problem? Or is that not possible? my t3 is 267, tsh .03 (which are both out of range) .
I go to my GYN on Wed, but I am assuming that since she isn't a specialist in this that she wont know much. I do go back to the endo in mid Sept and I will ask then too.

Just wondering if you knew anything about these being related or not.

Thanks!
April

Re: Told to ask K9Mom?

I don't know if PCOS and hyperthyroidism are related or not. I have an online friend who has Graves and PCOS, but she is just one of over 500+ of Graves people I've befriended online.

Have you been checked for insulin resistance? That usually goes hand-in-hand with PCOS.

I can't tell anything about your labs you posted because I don't have your labs normal ranges. Normal ranges can vary from lab to lab depending on the assay that they use. If you want to post the normal values for the tests, then I'll take a stab at it.
