  • From this study (2 years ago):

  • My new doctor found my T3 levels extremely low and T4 levels elevated. I was increased to 137 mcg/day of Synthroid after my thyroidectomy secondary to thyroid cancer. My endocrinologist only checked TSH for monitoring thyroid function and I have felt very poorly, in general for a number of years. I've had two lumbar back surgeries--an artificial disc at L5/S1 and a fusion at L4/L5. I have fairly significant further degeneration above the surgery levels found a couple of yrs. ago with a CT scan. No one has been able to tell me why I may have developed DDD, and through my research, came across the information linking hypothyroidim / Synthroid dosing with DDD. Any feedback would be most appreciated.
