Tue, Mar 5 10:18am · Low TSH - Bumped from doctor to doctor in Diabetes/Endocrine System

I had my thyroid removed in September 2018 due to a multinodular goiter. When my surgeon removed it, it was completely inflamed but the inflammation did not show up in bloodwork nor scans. I take Eltroxin 0,1 mg every day.

At my first six week check up my TSH basal was 1.22 mlU/l. Because I was so tired, I went up in dosage to 0,1 every other day and then a little bit more every other day.

At my second control my TSH basal was at 0.04 so my surgeon brought me back down to just the 0,1 mg Eltroxin every day.

At my third six week control it moved to 0.34. Today I had blood work done and it is back at 0.04 mlU/L (ft4 is 16.0 pmol/l and ft3 is 4.13 pmol/l).

Does anyone have any idea as to why it would go so low? I see my surgeon this Thursday.

Mon, Jan 7 11:57am · low chloride and thyreoglobulin levels in Diabetes/Endocrine System

I had blood work done today in preparation for my meeting on Thursday with my Endocrine surgeon. In September I had a multinodular goiter and a parathyroid removed. I take 0,1mg Eltroxin each day.

At my last visit my calcium was low normal and my parathyroid hormone level was sky high. He ordered some new tests to try to figure out what is going on.

Does anyone have any thoughts as to what low chloride indicates 99 mmol/l (reference 101-109)?

What about the Thyreoglobulin after Thyroidectomy 0.2 ng/ml (reference 1.60 – 6.0)?

Thanks so much in advance for an enlightenment you can send my way.

I have not had any side effects that I am aware of from Prolia. After taking it for 2 years I still have Osteoporosis but my levels are better than they were 2 years ago. Before Prolia I took Bonviva for two years and my Osteoporosis got worse.

Two months before I turned 50 I tripped and fell and broke my left wrist. Becuse I had read an article in NPR, I inisisted on a Bone Density Scan. I live in Switzerland and my doctor here was not in agreement but I insisted. I was diagnosed with Osteoporosis and took Bonviva injections for two years. It got worse and I switched to Prolia. I just had my DEXA scan last week after two years on Prolia and there is improvement in my bone density… still Osteoporosis though. I am 54 now and in trying to get to the root cause have discovered Normocalcemic Hyperparathyroidism. In September I had to have my thyroid removed and one parathyroid. Now my parathyroid hormone is through the roof again am scheduled for a scan at the beginning of January hoping to find the troublesome parathyroid and have it removed. Hyperparathyroidism contributes to Osteoporosis. This was a long winded reply to say… so far, Prolia has worked for me and I have no side effects that I know of. At my age and the level of my Osteoporosis, I am trusting my specialist. It does worry me though that I can never go off of this sort of medication.

I was on Bonviva for 2 years and it didn’t work. I started Prolia in January. So far the only side effects I notice are the same I had with Bonviva… stiffness in my hips and knees when I sit for a long time or first thing in the morning. I am 53 and have just started testing to see if they can discover a cause for my Osteoporosis.
