: : I finally got a copy, and I asked my Doctor if he Ever saw numbers like this! and he said last week when I saw yours!! I have has readings like this for a yr,and having so much trouble taking the synthriod..can't take it for more than two weeks when my heart starts pounding and skipping and I have to stop..Saw an Endo. who was the meanest man alive and he won't listen, in the mean time my cholestrol is 324!

: : Here is my numbers for thyroid panel, hypo.
: : TSH: 204.29mcILU/ml . can anyone explain these numbers to me, and why I can't take the thyroid medicine?
: : Sorry this was so long, and thanks for reading this.
: : confused and scared.
: Could be extremely rare pituitary gland oversecretion, have your pituitary gland checked, it is at the base of the brain, could see an endo or neurologist. Otherwise, it could be severe hypothyroidism, but it does not make sense that you can't take thyroid hormone, check the dose with the Dr.

Could also be that you are sensitive to either a filler or a paticular dye used in the dose that you are on. I can't take a 112mcg dose because of the red dye used in in. Also could be a T4 to T3 convesion problem, ask for a Free T3 and Free T4 test. If you are not converting the T4 in the Snythroid to T3 you might want to see if your doc would let you try adding either a snythetic T3 such as Cytomel, change to a combo synthetic drug such as Thyrolar or try a natural thyroid hormone drug such as Armour.
Hope this helps a bit, Tina
