Re: Alternating doses

Hi,

I recently had my dosage put down from 150/day to 150 on 5 days a week, and 100 on 2 days a week. (As I've got 50mcg tablets at the moment). I've been on the new schedule probably about 4...

Re: Hypothyroid - Is this Hell>? HELP please. Too tired to keep reading..

Hi,

Sorry you're feeling upset. But, possibly you're expecting a bit much of a message board.

It seems to me that the message board is mainly a question & answer forum. In the last 5 posts...

Re: It is bad to take medicine for hypothyroidism at 19?

By all means talk to your mothers dr. That seems a highly sensible thing to do.

Yep, I would imagine that people whose thryoid got back on track by itself wouldn't generally make their way to this...

Re: It is bad to take medicine for hypothyroidism at 19?

Hi,

Sympathy on the tiredness. I fully agree it really is frustrating.

I can remember when I was a student (maybe a year or 3 older than you), a doctor mentioned to me that a blood test had...

Re: Hypothyroid with low heart beat - HELP

Hi,

I'm unclear from your description whether you've found yourself putting on weight at a faster rate after you started treatment.

I can certainly tell you, that before I started treatment, my...

Re: Dosing - linear or parabolic?

That's really interesting (glad you're doing better now - 30 days straight sounds awful).

It fits in my my feeling that TSH has to matter as well. Aside from anything else, from everything I've...

Re: Dosing - linear or parabolic?

Hi,
Iím a bit of a numbers geek too!

Firstly, though. Itís probably best not to decide in advance what TSH to aim for. You should probably be thinking about how your symptoms feel Ė and using...

Re: extreme hypothyroidism when to go to the ER

Hi,

If it's any comfort my TSH was 57 last December or so & I'm still alive & kicking!

I think the way TSH works is on a logrithmic kind of scale (which roughly means - for those that don't...

Re: Someone please go over my results - THYROID PROBLEMS

As I understand it, the thing that makes thryoid disease *hard* to diagnose is that there are many many other conditions that have the same symptoms. That's why in order for it to be diagnosed a Dr...

Re: My niece needs your input on labs

Hi,

Your niece's labs look pretty much like mine about the time I was diagnosed - given that the lab ranges look like they're reporting in different units.

I'd got pretty used to feeling...

Re: Dosage increases on Synthroid

Hi,

I started on 25, went to 50 without a particular problem, then (effectively) straight to 150 (I had 2 weeks at 100 between 50 & 150, but it wasn't long enough to stabilize & there weren't...

Smile Re: How Much Vitamin D?

I started taking VitD a few years before I got my hypo diagnosis.

Re: Newbie - questions, labs & story.

Hi,

Thanks. Yes, my dose was increased from 50 to 150 with only 2 weeks at 100 (but no additonal labs) in between.

Anyhow, I've now waited another 6 weeks. I had new labs (just FT4 & TSH)...

Re: Newbie - questions, labs & story.

Thanks for your reply.

Yeah, those last 2 sets of numbers are pretty much all over the place. I meant after the 3 months on 50 mcg, the TSH spiked & the T4 dived (which seemed to me strange as...
