Avatar m tn I agree with armywife92 about the Vitamin D. Reading between the lines, i thought about Low Vitamin D often being associated with being hypothyroid, and since you were tested for TSH and FT4, I wondered if perhaps you had symptoms that resulted in these tests, especially for thyroid. I imagine that with your TSH being within the old reference range listed, and your Free T4 being in range, that the doctor decided you were "normal" as far as thyroid issues.
Avatar n tn I am extremely depressed and am suffering with hypothyroidism, low testosterone, too much estrogen, high cholesterol and low Vitamin D what is wrong with me? I originally thought that everything here is linked to depression from stress and anxiety so I started taking Lexapro for the depression. But my wife thinks that maybe all of these things are linked to a health issue. About 11 months ago I was diagnosed with high cholesterol and low thyroid, so I am taking red rice yeast and .
1462489 tn?1285945325 Blood work was done, then redone and shows testerone level ok, in the lower end of ok but the doctor said my vitamin D levels were very low. She perscribed me vitamin D 50,000iu one a day for 1 week then 1 a month for 3 months.She stated she was confident i would feel alot better in just a week. my question is why? are they two closely related, vitamin d and testerone? thank you in advance.
Avatar m tn I have been feeling terrible for about 2 months. Severe anxiety, depression, etc. it's hard to get out of bed and I'm walking around in a fog. I'm totally disconnected from the world. I just want to sleep, be left alone and try to go to work to support my family. Got my blood results back from my GP and I have low testosterone (level of an 85 year old) and I'm 40, low Vitamin D and elevated Thyroid antibodies. My GP prescribed me Ambien to sleep and Lexapro.

1240683 tn?1268232755 The only thing that has shown up is an ulcer in the ileum, low vitamin d, and low testosterone. The testosterone was rechecked after a week of vitamin supplements (particularly vitamin d - 1400mg day), and it came back normal. I've read that low T can be related to low vitamin d. Is this correct? Anyway, my primary question is this, could there be pancreatic insufficiency problems causing malabsorption of nutrients such as vitamin d that is causing the fatigue?
Avatar m tn Also test thyroid (t3, t4, ft3, ft4, tsh, reverse t3) and adrenals (cortisol 24 hour saliva, pregnenolone, dhea or dhea-s), sugar and fasting sugar. vitamin d too low. Your problem is hormonal. after bloodwork, post your results in one of erectile dysfunction forums. many guys will help you. remeber if your numbers are within normal range, it doesn't mean you have no imbalances. Like you, I had hormonal problems. when your hormones are dialed in, you're good to go.
Avatar f tn He is a contractor and is generally out in the sun 8-10 hours daily however he was recently told that his Vitamin D were drastically low and he began taking a Vitamin D supplement daily. My husband was also diagnosed with a mitochondrial myopathy approximately 9 years ago and underwent a muscle biospy because he had CPK levels in the 1200 range, he currently undergoes no treatment for this.
Avatar m tn You should also get vitamin B12 and vitamin D tested. Low levels of Vitamin B12 can cause horrible fatigue and low levels of vitamin D can cause hypo-like symptoms.
Avatar f tn This makes me think he should also be tested for cortisol and ferritin (a storage form of iron). Vitamin D and B12 are also important so I also suggest testing those as well. Do you think you can get him tested for cortisol, ferritin, Vitamin D, and B12? Also, symptoms are the most important indicator of thyroid status. Does he have any of the following symptoms besides fatigue, which is common for teenagers it seems? Fatigue Increased sensitivity to cold (temp. below 98.
Avatar m tn Common deficiencies that affect testosterone levels are Vitamin D, zinc, magnesium, selenium and Vitamin A. Vitamin D is necessary for the metabolism of thyroid hormones and deficiency is also known for causing low testosterone levels. Same goes for selenium, which has also been shown to help in the conversion of the thyroid hormone Free T4 to the usable Free T3. Vitamin D deficiency mimics hypothyroidism.
Avatar n tn Calcium, PTH, and vitamin D again, (after completing my Vitamin D therapy) total serum estrogen, and FSH, LH and prolactin. Calcium - 9.8 mg/dl PTH - 25 pg/ml Vitamin D - 23/ng/ml total serum estrogen - 133 pg/ml which he said was a bit high... FHS, LH and prolactin levels were all normal. I just talked with him again following another round of testing.
Avatar m tn t improved so I went back to my primary care doc and asked him to do a work up on other things that can cause energy issues, including low t. My vitamin d was also severely low (I work in an office). Anyway. I've been reading about all the different possible causes of low testosterone and I'm just really concerned. My current energy levels are not normal at all. My mood is always terrible.
Avatar n tn 7 (never checked before) with a PTH of 50 (these tests were done a week apart though) and I have many of the symptoms of parathyroid disease including osteoporosis (I am age 33), gerd/acid reflux, frequent urination, trouble sleeping, previous kidney stones, depression etc. I have low vitamin D and my calcium is going up and down depending on whether I take vitamin D or not.
Avatar m tn Here is what I have, not that I know what any of this means! Endocrinologist just said you have Hoshimoto's and will need to have blood drawn every 6 weeks and take vitamin D liquid and stay off caffeine! He explained nothing and certainly does not understand I AM TOTALLY EXHAUSTED 24x7! I may sleep 17 hours some days! Also to note, I have always had optimal blood pressure, but in past few years it has skyrocketed to over 219/105 and sometimes higher out of nowhere.
Avatar m tn s what your doctor was reacting to, when he should have reacted to the high parathyroid level, low testosterone, low DHEA, low vitamin D, low T3 and high FT4... His priorities are somewhat off. On 250 mcg Synthroid, your Total T3 was 79, which was only 3.2% of its range and your Free T4 was at the very top of its range. He didn't even order a Free T3, which is much more important than Total T3, but we can assume that Free T3 would have been equally as low or lower in its range...
Avatar n tn I had the same problems and found my vitamin D was 8ng/ml in Jan 2015 severely low, should be 50 to 80.
Avatar m tn I recently found out my Vit D levels were quite low (22 mg/dl), and this is after a month of supplementing 2000iu daily and getting 10-15min of full body midday sun exposure. So a couple questions... What dosage would you recommend? I was considering slowly increasing from 2000 to 4000 over the next few weeks. How long will it take before my levels reach 60+ (my goal, since I have heard 60-80 is ideal for my condition of fatigue and sleep apnea).
Avatar m tn 341 (348-1197) and my Vitamin D is also low: 24 (30-100).
Avatar f tn Testosterone, Bioavailable was 87.5; Vitamin D, 25-OH, TOTAL was 24; Vitamin D, 25-OH, D3 was 24; Vitamin D, 25-OH, D2 was <4 I don't think I see results for Vitamin B or Hashimoto's, unless I'm not looking in the right place. Thank you so much again.
12182312 tn?1427683956 Hmmm. The degree of vitamin D (and calcium) deficiency is significantly associated with the degree and severity of hypothyroidism. The possible explanations for low vitamin D levels with hypothyroidism: poor absorption of vitamin D from the intestine or the body may not activate vitamin D properly. Current recommended vitamin D levels for optimal health that I have read from various studies: 40 to 60 ng/mL (100-150 nmol/L) year round.
