  • q-iconThis question is about timing of a Dried Blood Spot (DBS) test. I recently took over a case from a naturopath. A 48-year old woman with a history of childhood and adult trauma, non-Hashimoto's hypothyroidism (since age 43), and early menopause in the wake of a ruptured ectopic pregnancy (age 39). She has been on hormone replacement therapy for the last 6 years, most recently taking Bi Est transdermal (80/20) 0.8 mg for 2 days on, 1 day off; Testosterone transdermal 0.125 mg for 2 days on, 1 day off; and oral Progesterone 50 mg qhs. Recently she has varied both her transdermals from every other day to every third day, in response to acne or emotional overwhelm. I suspect she is over-treated and want to get an accurate read on her hormonal status before making any changes. She's also on Liothyroinine 5 mcg qd, which has been stable. If she plans to do her DBS first thing in the morning (which is fine for the Progesterone), how and when should she take the two transdermal products in relation to the DBS? And I assume she should do the DBS before she takes her morning Liothyronine?

    “My recommendation would be for her to use her hormones the day before she does her DBS collection. She can keep her progesterone dosing the same as it is taken in the evening. Her Bi-Est and Testosterone are taken every third day which is very low dosing but seems to be her norm. Because her dosing is so spread out, having her use her hormones the morning of the day before she collects her DBS will be more representative of what her levels may look like on the days when she doesn’t supplement. I suspect that she is under-supplemented given the dosage of the hormones and the frequency of dosing.

    Yes, it would be advisable to take her thyroid hormone after she collects her DBS. Some recommend that thyroid dosing before doing thyroid testing should be done the night before to get a better read on the effect of supplemention, but it seems she is stable for thyroid management so I would keep her dosing as is. I think it is important really determine premature ovarian failure in this woman. The dosing of her hormones is low compared to what most menopausal women need to control symptoms. If she is reacting to the low dosing that she is on, she may still have some endogenous production of hormones.”

    Dr. Tracy Tranchitella

  • q-icon"I have a 48-year old female with fatigue and some low thyroid symptoms along with a 9 mm thyroid cyst, ‘normal’ TSH and T4, thyroid peroxidase at 10, but ultrasound shows some calcification around the rim. Besides the ‘wait 3 months and retest’ recommendation, how would you proceed?"

    “It’s known that calcifications can be associated with thyroid cancer, but not all calcified thyroid nodules are cancerous. Calcification can occur from inflammation and iodine deficiency. The TPO at 10 looks as though Hashimoto’s is not the cause of low thyroid, although an anti-thyroid antibody (anti-thyroglobulin) can be done too. Internal thyroid calcifications can be from oxalate crystals, but these develop in the follicle of the thyroid. I would suggest doing a more complete thyroid test by adding in Free T4, Free T3 and Reverse T3. Just having a normal T4 doesn’t show what the conversion to T3 is doing. Also, look at an Organic Acids Test (OAT) for other information related to fatigue, e.g. mitochondrial dysfunction, but also oxalic acid.”
