  • Thyroid Levels

    Hi, my wife has been diagnosed with thyroiditis and told she has hypothyroidism 8 months after pregnancy , and we are just finding a lot of mixed opinions on what her thyroid levels should actually be and whether she should be on medication. She is currently prescribed synthroid and it seems to be causing a lot of side effects (ie hair loss, heat sensitivity, among other things), but the doctor doesn’t seem to think these are an issue. What are the thyroid ranges you would recommend?

    Is she seeing an Endocrinologist?

    Do you have any lab data available?

    This is something that requires a lot more detailed history and lab interpretation in order to provide guidance, and is more in the realm of a consultation.
