Re: new labs, please help

Lack of treatment resulted in a Graves - Hashimoto's war. My Hashi's antibodies peaked at greater than 10,000 for a period of a year. I lived in daily hypoT hyperT hades and Hashimoto's killed my thyroid off. So my hypoT is treated with 175 mcgs of T4. My collaterally damaged insulin production and function is treated with metformin 2000 mg daily. My hypoT induced Hypoadrenalism is treated with 20 mg of hydrocortisone a day. I monitor my BP, body temp, heart and more. My graves eye disease is in remission...

I have lpr treated with omeprozole.
Can't take bcs or female hormone therapy due to adrenal backlash.
CPAP for sleep apnea.
Humm.. Test my FTS and adrenals quarterly. I have lab orders fof fts given to me by my IM. If symptoms change i pull out the order date it and go get my blood drawn. Yearly check on antibodies.
Yearly thyroid ultrasound to monitor my nodule...
Then the yearly female, cardiac, sleep medicine, dermatologist, and allergist follow ups.

That covers it. I think.
