Burping? ADCAL -D3 For Osteoporosis And THYROXINE For Underactive Thyroid

May 24, 2015

When taking ADCAL -D3 for Osteoporosis and THYROXINE for underactive thyroid, there should be a space of at least 4, yes 4 hours between these medications as side effects could be upset tummy, wind and constipation etc.

So tomorrow I will leave off the ADCAL-D3 for a few days to see if this is the problem.

Thyroid Is Underactive Due To Lithium

I have complex PTSD and Bipolar Disorder 1.  I was diagnosed in September 2013 during a manic attack and started medication regime:  Lithium (225+450) and 300 mg Seroquel.  Now, 2 years + later, my Thyroid is underactive due to Lithium and my Psychiatrist wants to change Lithium to something else.

My challenge:  I start a new job next week (after being unemployed for 7 months and really need this job!) and a few weeks ago I went low on my Lithium (skipped a few morning doses and ended up in mixed episodes and had a spider-related psychosis!)

I am really anxious about one day changing my Lithium.  I was wondering how long can I be on it before it will damage my kidneys like it is affecting my thyroid now?

Hypothyroidism :: Levothyroxine For Underactive Thyroid

During a routine blood test in August I was diagnosed with underactive thyroid. I wasn't feeling ill so was quite surprised when I read the symptoms. I've been on Levothyroxine for 3 months now and I feel terrible. I'm so drained and exhausted, angry and frustrated, bloated, fat, stomach pains and unhappy, I keep going back to the doctor but she just pops me more pills and I don't feel she is very understanding or sympathetic. I didn't feel this bad before I started the medication so I'm going to stop it. I was placed on 50mg and two weeks later my blood tests were normal and have been since so for such a small dose does it really matter? I'm so low, sometimes it's all too much I want to have a paddy and a tantrum and smash the place up and if anyone gets in my way then they'll get it too.

The doctor wants me to try CBT self help courses to understand what troubles me. When I'm not having some kind of flip out I know what troubles me - things are a struggle and I hate being ill and I want to be better.

Thyroid Disorders :: High Cholesterol With L-Thyroxine

Have been on L-Tyroxine probably 30 years. When I weighed 120, cholesterol was 190, now that I am 68 and 30 lbs more, 150 at 5'4", my cholesterol is 416 (LDL in 300 range). I eat clean, no breads, cereals, carbs, etc (except only once in a while) eat wild game, game hen, fish, chicken, loads of fruits, veggies, etc., every thing super lean, fresh. take loads of supplements. I lift weights, do yoga, stretches, heavy gardening. Therefore, I find it absurd that my LDL is that high! I have absolutely no health issues except high cholesterol. Would Armour be better?

Thyroid :: Involuntary Burping After Parathyroidectomy?

Did anybody experience involuntary burping/ trapped air/ flemy lump when swallowing after their Parathyroidectomy? Mine started 4 days after op i'm now on my 3rd week of recovery and it's still there. Went back to hospital yesterday and she said the scar/lump which is going down nicely is normal, yet she has never heard of the involuntary burping/ trapped air , she said it could be because of where they have moved stuff and it's settling down. I still have soreness and bruising and this is starting to go down.

Hypothyroid Or Hyperthyroid? Thyroxine Free 1.81

I've been hypothyroid for a long time. I've been taking Synthroid also a long time. I'm confused by my recent blood test. My TSH was 1.180 within normal range and my Thyroxine free 1.81 . The range should be 0.93-1.70. What does this mean. I'm I hypothyroid or hyperthyroid?

Hypothyroidism :: Thyroxine Makes Me Feel Worse?

I have regular blood tests and have been given Metformin for Type 2 for the past six months. I often feel the need for a nap mid-afternoon but I put that down to the after effects of lunch! I have been morbidly obese for years and considering that, my energy levels are good. I am 65 this month and still work full-time and intend to continue. I also take Tamsulosin for an enlarged Prostate. Recently I was summoned by the doctor after routine blood tests and told I had mild Hypothyroidism for which I was prescribed 50g per day of Thyroxin. They made me feel terrible - every day for two weeks so I've stopped taking them and feel fine again. Seems like the Thyroxin gives me the symptoms of Hypothyroidism - loss of sex drive, tiredness, headaches. What's the likely outcome of not taking these awful pills? Any advice gratefully received.

Pain In Right Side Of Neck After Reduced Dose Of Thyroxine

I am a 50 year old woman who was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid 18 years ago. I have never been right as the Dr keeps changing my dose every time I have a blood test. He says this sometimes happens, but I constantly feel lousy, tired spotty, overweight, high blood pressure (now medicated) and IBS. I work all week and spend the weekend in bed.The mood swings are also awful. Since another reduction I am now on 100mcg and have developed an unusual pain in the lower front right hand side of my neck (can't feel a lump or anything) but get aching through shoulder and side of head.

am really getting a bit fed up now as the Dr just doesn't seem to understand how I feel and has offered anti-depressants. I have seen a specialist in the past but he was a diabetic man rather than thyroid and actually commented on the wrong set of blood results!

i guess my plea is twofold first is there anyone else out there who has had similar symptoms and 2 can anyone recommend a good specialist? I'm thinking of going privately now even though it's so expensive and thought about the Birmingham Thyroid Clinic?

Hypothyroidism :: Thyroxine Can Give False Fasting Blood Test ?

I am on 150mcg Thyroxine and have a fasting blood test on Friday.  I take thyroxine at night as it makes me feel better the next day - like my thyroid is already working/functioning as it should be. Lots of speculation about whether to take meds before a test - fasting or not and if it could give a false reading. Wish doctors could be consistent with their thyroid diagnosis, and have not published their findings on whether or not to take meds before a blood test.

Reverse Osteoporosis?

After my dad who is 85 was diagnosed with Osteoporosis, I started doing some research. Most if not all these meds have so many side effects and are even thought to cause further damage to the bone. There are a lot of doctors starting to promote healthy diet changes as opposed to taking meds. The old theory that milk and dairy promotes bone health is now thought to be a scam funded with trillions of dollars by the dairy industry. So I'm curious, has anyone tried a plant based or starch based diet to reduce symptoms or even reverse their Osteoporosis?

Omeprazole Contributing To Osteoporosis?

Anybody heard anything about the use of omeprazole contributing to osteoporosis? I am considering stopping the use as I now have osteoporosis. Reading the suggestions to taper off is helpful and I will use them. Have a hiatal hernia and acid reflux but think that it may impede calcium intake.

Menopause At 30's - How To Prevent Osteoporosis?

I'm 45, I started suspecting early menopause at the age of 37,which is when my symptoms started started including depression and anxiety, I have been on and off (mainly on) anti depressants since i was 39,I  was 41 when my periods stopped altogether.

After 2 years of doctors advising me to go on hrt especially as i am early menopausal, i gave in 6 months ago and went on elleste duet. It has stopped my hot flushes, night sweats, joint pain, dry skin etc: which is all

good but I'm still not convinced i am doing the right thing,I am very concerned about the cancer risks so I am thinking of coming off them as well as my mini pill (which i take to control my endometriosis) I am mostly concerned about osteoporosis, and my question is surely if i take Vit D and Calcium every day I can protect my bones in the same way ?

Osteoporosis And Osteopenia :: Co-Codamol Failed

 I can't find ANYTHING that removes the pain!  Co Codamol doesn't, the 'so called' pain relieving gels don't (I've tried 3 different types).  Can anyone suggest anything else?

Yesterday I twisted my hips somehow as I got out of the chair, the pain was excruciating.  Since then I can hardly walk (how does excercise, excercise fit in then?)

I had been doing so well, 20 mins walk per day (and I've always disliked walking!) - physiotherapy, etc.

Osteoporosis Relation To Parathyroid Disease?

I have general query regarding parathyroid disease in the context of women with 50+ years of age. Is osteoporosis a symptom of this kind of disease ? Or, does it need to be both vitamin-D3 & Ca to be high in Blood too ? For example, if x-ray shows osteoporosis & also vitamin-D3 (25 OH) is too low (i.e. < 15), can we simply rule out parathyroid disease here ? Or, to be sure, we need to test serum Ca as well ?

Hysterectomy :: Increased Risk Of Heart Disease And Osteoporosis?

When I met with the gynaecological oncologist, and decided that to be safe I should have a hysterectomy to get rid of the rapidly growing, funny looking (on MRI) fibroid, he said "we'll take out the ovaries, too." At the time, I didn't say anything.

However, after I went home, and I did a lot of research and found that it would be a bad idea because having my ovaries removed increase my risk of heart disease and osteoporosis, and my family has a strong history of both, but not of cancer (which I didn't think to mention at the consultation - finding out that there was a slight chance I might have cancer in my uterus put other thoughts out of my mind.) So I sent a very long, detailed email to the gyn/onc, explaining why I thought removing my ovaries would be a bad idea but never got a response. So I called the gynaecological nurse, who was present at my consultation, and she reassured me that I didn't have to have my ovaries out; I have to consent to the surgery.

Well, I was all relieved until I had my pre surgical assessment on Wednesday, when I was given the paperwork to fill out and on the top of the first page it said TAH/BSO (The BSO part means removal of Fallopian tubes and ovaries.) I wrote on the page that I did not consent to BSO and told the assessment nurse, who said she just go that from the doctor and it had nothing to do with her.

So when I returned home, I spoke to the gyn/onc's secretary, who said that she must have mistakenly wrote TAH/BSO on the form and not to worry, the doctor knows about it. I said that I wanted to make sure that he was aware of it prior to my surgery, which is this coming Wednesday, and she said she would speak to him on Friday (today) and would call me back.

Well, I never heard back so called around 4:50 and spoke to a woman (not sure if it was the same person) who, after I gave my name, immediately started reassuring me that my operation would go on as scheduled. I explained that wasn't why I was calling, I wanted to make sure that the doctor wasn't expecting to take out my ovaries when I didn't want him to. She then tried to reassure me that everything was as expected and something about an email being forwarded to him (not sure if she said she forwarded an email or my email). I think she also mentioned something about getting in touch on Monday.

I know that I don't have to consent to anything I don't want to, but I also don't want to have the doctor come in on the morning expecting to do one type of surgery and then being asked to do something else. If the gyn/onc thinks that even with my family history, I'm better off without ovaries, then I'm willing to listen and change my decision, but I don't like the idea of not knowing what is happening with me until the last minute and having to have these kind of conversations on the day of my operation.

Failed Humerus Heal At 88 - Profound Osteoporosis Bone Fixation?

My mom is 88. In August of 2012 she fell and broke her left humerus. Our first Dr. did an external fixation and we administered a bone stimulator conscientiously for 3 1/2 months, a half hour every night. After about six months the external fixation became progressively loose.

We obtained a new orthopedic surgeon who deemed that another surgery would be necessary. He did an internal fixation with synthetic bone graft. After about a year that has failed. Now we have total failure of the arm …. (looks like two elbows), x rays reveal floating screws, wire wrap coming undone from the plate, and most recently painful surges from the shoulder all the way to the tips of her fingers.

Her bones are obviously very osteoporotic. Our Dr. has suggested another surgery with a longer plate. I worry about another surgery (T.I.A. and clotting) and after two failures why would a third be successful?

Is there any new technology regarding 'profound osteoporosis bone fixation'?
