High T and elevated thyroid
« on: May 29, 2013, 03:46:01 am »
I had my blood work done last week and now they say my thyroid is two high. I started my T replacement 3 months ago and feel better than I've ever felt in my life. I have no physical symptoms of hyperthyroid and yeah my testosterone is borderline in the red but I was wondering if my high T would cause my thyroid to be jacked up. I was treated for hyperthyroid 3 1/2 years ago and then got cancer. When I finished a year straight of interferon chemotherapy my thyroid levels came back low and then was treated for hypothyroidism. When I started my T replacement I quit my levothyroxine (I know stupid!) but now I think my GP is gonna cut me back on my testosterone. Ughhhhhh!

I have never heard of hyperthyroidism as a side effect of HRT.  But you need to ask your doc about that one to make sure of course, especially with your medical history.  Let us know if you find out about some sort of connection there, because that would be a new one...

If you are on medications or have a medical condition, always check with your doctor first before making any lifestyle changes or taking new supplements.  And low testosterone is a medical condition.
