Low/High TSH Levels, and Impact on Other Conditions?
@colleenyoung Coleen, it’s been a while since I participated in a discussion, last year when I first had A-fib and stayed active for a while. Recently it’s come to light that when my A-fib events happen, my thyroid TSH hormone has been very low and it seems that it may be the trigger. The reason for this contact is to learn if there is any discussion of thyroid issues. I asked my doctor to switch me from Synthroid to Nature-Throid, a natural product instead of synthetic, last June. Since then my TSH numbers have been all over the map. It first came back very high, meaning I needed more Nature-Throid. We increased and tested, increased and tested until my meds were high and the TSH was very low (0.03) at my last A-Fib event when it should be 0.6 – 3.74. Since then we have decreased the meds but the TSH stays low, recently at 0.06. Just wondered if any other members had any experience in this arena. Thanks, Jim
