Hi all. I wrote last week asking about a strange TSH (tsh 8.07) (T421.8) that my Mum has had for ages now (on and off). Most of you said it seemed there could be some conversion problem so she's not getting t3. We have sought another Endos opinion and there's no surprise he doesn't think it's necessary to test T3. There's been another development though as she had a back xray done last week (due to extreme pain)she had a lumbar vertebrae xray - it's just come back with mild compression fractures of the lumbar vertabrae with exception of l5 consisitent with osteoporosis. This is concrning as only last year she had extensive tests done including bone density and MRIs and had no fractures (apart from an old wedge fracture she knew about). Now this makes me wonder...it's either something sinister (dont want to even think about it) or the lack of T3 thyroid issues have brought on the bone thinning. Oh and yesterday one of her teeth just broke in two! Any thoughts anyone? We are awaiting an MRI.
