    Tsh 54.5 and vit d deficeincy??

    Hi, I've been sick for about 6 wks and found out while I was sick. My TSH was 54.5, have Ospeopenia, Vit D deficiency and need to take 50,000iu a wk. My vit d was result was 15 and bone test -1.85. What I wondering is this Hypothyroid and Vit D related. I DO NOT have any thyroid, I had to 2 separate surgeries b/c of large nodules and the 131 rai didn't help actually got larger. Oh, also started Lovastine (high chol) Is all of this related to thyroid? On 100 synthyroid and someone mentioned , have I been checked for PTH since vit d is low. I have 4 more weeks before i get retested for TSH any input would be appreciated.

    Heart issues, malabsorption of minerals and more can be attributed to hypothyroidism. If you were on 100 mcgs of T4 when your TSH was taken you need to look at your Ft3 and Ft4 levels to determine where you are in range. If your Ft3 levels are really low you may need T3 supplementation. You do need to supplement D, Ca, and K together. Many of us have to do it. I have to supplement B12, Fe, D, K, Ca, and Mg daily. High cholesterol is often common in hypoT patients.

    PTH is parathyroid hormone. Your parathyroid helps regulate your Calcium and Potassium levels.
