Hello all-53 yd old female dx with hypothyroid 8/16. Been reading posts and waiting for a series of labs so I could post and ask for guidance. Please comment on labs given my meds: started Naturthroid 32.5mg 1x/day 11/7/16, then increased to Naturthroid 2x/day 12/20/16. No negative onset of symptoms w starting NT. Started testosterone cream (apply vaginal) on 11/1 was overprescribed (I was ramped up, wanted to clean and argue with people all the time), then put on normal amount by 12/9 labs. Estriadol patch 0.05 2x/wk. Progestrone oral 100mg 1x/day at bedtime.
Ongoing symptoms: extreme lair loss, weight gain with no decrease, constipation, bloating, low libido, low appetite, recently getting moody/sad again a bit. Energy better, brain fog minimal, no more hot flash, sleep good.
I work with a great gyno who is giving me supplements, managing the NT, estradiol and progesterone. My endo deferred to my gyno to manage the thyroid issues since gyno is well respected in these areas. I see her again this Tuesday and hope to bring your comments to my appointment.
