Discussions that mention synthroid

Men's Health board


Here it goes--I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism about three years ago--Has taken this long to get it regulated--Taking 150mcg of Synthroid and thyroid hormone levels are normal at .9--I had to ask to have my testosterone levels checked and sure enough they were low at 185--So he starts me on test shots 200mg every two weeks--I take three shots--When I go back for the fourth he doesn't give it to me and does more blood work and sends me to an endocrinologist--I take that back I had to once again ask for a referrel--blood work showed a decrease in test levels despite being on the shots--It went down to 115--My FSH and LH levels were virtually nonexistent at .1--All other hormone levels were normal--So I have an MRI to check my pituitary gland and it was fine--So the endocrinologist writes me a script for 200mg of test every two weeks--When I asked her why my levels had actually decreased after the first three shots every two weeks--she had no answer for that--So my question is--Do I need to either up the dosage or increase the frequency myself? Tired of the fatigue and erectile problems and not wanting to wait six more months for the doc to tell me "Yeah we need to increase the dosage or frequency of injections because this isn't working"--ANY HELP WOULD GREATLY BE APPRECIATED...
