Re: So has treatment worked?
Yes, I feel better. Have been in successful treatment going on 1 year... after being unsuccessfully treated for about 6 months.
I have no more brain fog, I have as much energy as my "before-hypo self" did [Not more, just the same.], my blood pressure is normal, my eyebrows have grown back, and I'm not as short-winded. My eyes don't burn and blur the way they used to.
I still have muscle aches, but it's quite possible they aren't related to the hypo; I'm searching out other causes and cures for them.
I haven't had my cholesterol checked since I've been in treatment, but I'm hoping it has come down. I haven't lost weight, but I hadn't really gained much while hypo... so no win, no loss.
In short, if symptoms are caused by hypo, treating the hypo will eliminate them. BUT... we must always remember that not every symptom can be blamed on the hypo, and treating the hypo won't eliminate those that aren't caused by it.
