| | help, hyperthyroid and arfraid ill have to stop nursing....
I'm a mess.. my results are <.01 tsh, t4free 1.7, t3 total 266, ferritin 93. Having symptoms of racing heart, hot and sweaty, finger tremors, insomnia, shortness of breath, etc. The full thyroid work up test isn't back yet but I'll post results when they're in. I'm nursing my 1 yr old and its insanely important for us both that I not cut her off cold turkey!! But I'm aware they cant ignore the hyperthyoidism...none of the treatment is compatible with breastfeeding except ptu which ive read can cause liver failure.
I have questions and would appreciate help asap.
I don't know how to know if this is postpartum thyroidosis (which could clear up!) or graves... my mom had grave's postpartum so severely and had the RAI when I was 1.
Are there any vitamins that can lower my levels to buy more breastfeeding time?
What do my numbers mean?
Anyone know about L Creatinine? I cant find a straight answer about its advisability during nursing.
I don't know what to do... I cant ignore the symptoms but the treatment options are bad...I don't want to strain my heart by waiting too long but I also don't want to cut my baby off.. I'm devistated. Thanks.
