I'm 69 and on 50mcg thyroxine for hypo. Been taking thyroxine since Aug 2013. I would like to know if anyone could help me or has a similar situation as mine. In the beginning it took a while for thyroxine to bring my TSH down. it was 4.87 and finally on my test 6 months ago went down to 1.9. I have appt with GP next month on 11th. I cannot get my blood sugar down at all. in Feb A1C was 6.1. Then I started eating bad cause I was famished all the time and gained 12 lbs. Next A1C was 7.9. Yikes! I instantly started dieting, eating good, and no sugar goodies. I have lost 7 lbs now and still having trouble with my testing in the morning. It goes from 120's to 150's. Up and down. Before taking levothyroxine I never had problems with dieting and losing weight and getting my A1C down. I could do it within 3 months. My question: Has anyone with type 2 diabetes on medication have the thyroxine interfere with the effectiveness of your diabetic meds. I feel as if my glipizide is not working anymore and the thyroxine has been the problem. Anyone who can share if they ever experienced this problem. would like to know before I go to GP. Thanks
