I was on another site and asked a questioned and someone said, my Endo is trying to kill me, he has no clue about treating thyroid, that my treatment could be causing heart disease and lung cancer. My God who does that? She said people being treat with levothyroxine meds are being treated in correctly and this is causing heart disease and lung cancer. This treatment for hypo has been used for many years and altho I'm sure people have heart disease and some who get lung cancer during treatment, but hey that could happen with taking multi vitamins. I couldn;t believe she was telling me all this and that going to an endo is going to kill me. Yes I've had some issues with my tsh levels since developing another disorder that has caused me great stress and anxiety, so we've been working on getting the levels on track and its takin quite awhile. I'm also on propranolol for headaches and dizziness, and of course she said you deficient in propranolol but you are in FT3, which is on the low side of normal, its 2.1. So yes thats a problems, as are my cholestrol levels have gone up, but as my endo and ENT have told me, that propranolol and low TSH can cause this. She made it sound like because my FT3 is low I'm doomed. She kept saying get rid of that doc he is clueless. I don't beleive that taking levo is causing heart & lung issues. I know and my doc knows the Ft3 is low normal and we are working on things, as my TSH is 8,45. But this person has worried me with all this, as now i'm feeling breathless almost and anxious, even tho I know it will be ok, my health anxiety took over. THanks for just listening.
