I am75 after hertseptine treatment and started to get femara

Customer Question

I am75' after hertseptine treatment' and started to get femara 6 month ago. My curly hair turned strait and my neils are not growing at all. Nobody can tell me if there is a connection to femara and if there is a remedy. I still care how I look!

Hello,

I've been working hard to find a Professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right Professional can take a little longer than expected.

I wonder whether you're ok with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you.

Thank you,

OK
What is the TSH value exaclty. "normal" is not useful. That has all changed.
Customer: replied 3 years ago.


tsh value is1.49, on dec 2013

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 3 years ago.
That is OK.
These side effects have not been reported from femara, but that does not mean it can't be the femara; it does through off your hormone profile.

I would want
Sex hormone panel including SHBG
Thyroid panel repeated
Adrenal panel.

Only this way are you going to get a full picture.

I would see an up to date endocrinologist, who will understand this.
