Hello from JA
I am Dr. Thomas, board certified in internal medicine and I can help you with this and any follow up questions. I cover a lot of ground and might give you an answer or ask for information, but use reply to communicate with me for questions or added details.
OK Your question is not clear.
First of all, why have you been treated with thyroid medication. What is your TSH value without thyroid medication.
Why are you on glucophage [polycystic ovaries?]
By the way, you absolutely need to find out if there is increased pressure in the brain as a shunt would be needed now, not later.
Please supply the details I have asked for.
One of my local doctors prescribed me Eltroxin and Ditroxin as he said that I do not have an underactive Thyroid, however a Thyroid that is bound to failure since my Antibdy production was extremely high. My Thyroglobulin was 916.89 and my TSH befoe medication was 2.04. Desperate for help, I sued this mediation for 2 years up to a point where in April this year I experienced symptoms of an overactive Thyroid (excessive heart throbbing, short of breath, lethargic ect) and as a result my Physisian warned me that my Thyroid is leaning towards becoming overactive- so I stopped my meds. I have been without Thyroid meds for +- 2 months. (The strange thing is, even with the Thyroid meds, and a slightly overactive Thyroid- I was still gaining weight).
About the Glcophage. In 2011 another Endocrinologist prescribed me Glucophage with the hopes of triggering a natural menstrual cycle (since the question of wil I ever start showcased amongst doctors), however the Glucophage then had no effect whtasoever. However now, about 2 months ago (after consuming 2x talets 7 days a week for 4 months) I had my first 3 day cycle, which was followed by another 3 day cycle the next month. This month no cycle has occurred. I'm assuming it is because I skipped a few days of taking tablets as I was literally bed lying of vomiting and nausea because of the Glucophage. I has made me so sick recently that I really want to stop using it. Can do something like this?? Just stop drinking it??
No I do not have PCOS, I have been tested for that.
My Glucose fasting, before starting Glucophage, was 5.3.
I have gone for a brand new sample of blood tests about a week ago, which I am waiting for. When I get them, I can send the results through as well.
Is the only way of testing my internal pressure through Lumbapuncture?
Alright, I shall go for an LP test.
I will also send newest blood results through.
What does doc mean about Gucophage and PCOS? I do not have PCOS (have been for 2 scans to check) but Glucophage obviously worked in triggering the menstrual cycle? What about the nausea and vomiting from the meds?
Can bodily water retention, and in effect, weight gain, be a symptom from
What hormonal disorders/problems causes excessive fat and cellulite production and very little muscle gain (even though one exercises tremendously) ?? Cortisol?? Cushing's syndrome??
Thanks for the help
