Hello everybody,
I am new here, and perehaps you can give us some helpful hints.
Ma daughter (age 24) showed following Symptoms appearing in 2 weeks:
  • myxedeme in face
  • HIGH resting pulse (over 80 bpm) -> Hyopthyteodism shouuld be 50-60.
  • walking up stairs very stressfull
  • could not work on master-thesis
  • no change of body weight over the years
Visit doctor
  • TSH 5,44 mlU/l , TPO Antibody: 0,6 lU/ml (=low -> no Hashimoto)
  • Therapy : Thyroxin 50 myg
  • With Thyroxine: resting pulse 90 bpm
What is strange and contracicting:
  • High resting pulse (90) -> symptom of HYPERthyriodism and
  • Myxedeme/loss of efficience -> HYPOthyreodism

Has anyone seen such a contradiction?

Lothar
