  • From this study (9 months ago):

  • I have been on the above mentioned blood pressure medication for 20 yrs my side effects have always been night sweats and a nasal drip but ive coped with that. ,I had a total thyroidectomy 12 yrs ago and have regular checks for that but 2 yrs ago my hair fell out over a period of a year, this has obviously caused me so much distress but I was not under stress at the time it happened I have had all the general treatment steroid lotion, injections in my head, steroid tablets to no avail,im desperate for any help but my dermatologist said its so hard to treat and I feel fobbed off.

  • 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.
