    My daughter had radioablation on her thyroid two years ago. She was put on oral synthroid. The TSH levels continued to rise, they continued to increase the dosage. Her TSH levels reached 585.88!! She went in to heart failure and was admitted to Vanderbilt. She is now on synthroid injections, her levels are still well above normal but not over 100. However, they are still increasing the injections as she hits about 30 and the levels start rising again. She is now on 700 mcg of synthroid injections twice a week and has since discovered she is pregnant ( birth control orally did not work either). They are trying to treat her and keep baby safe as well as figure out why her body is not absorbing oral medications. Her Endocrinologist says this is very rare. Has any one else had these issues?
