i had posted about a week ago about questions on how to determine thyroid problems...you all advised me to go get the bloodwork and i did...even with thyroid issues and goiters (sp) in my family my thyroid levels are perfect...reason i went was the sweats, cant stand the heat, drastic weight loss since the end of jan, irritability, fried hair and brittle nails....
so now i have to chart my food and liquid intake for a week and see whats causing all this
sapphiregem...3 good books for you to read...Living with Hypothyroidism by Mary Shomon..Thyroid Power by Richard Shames...Could it be my Thyroid by Sheldon Rubenfeld MD...lots of stuff to read to get a diagnosis/treatment...please let us know what happens...
pretty bad results may look perfect to a doctor that doesn't know about thyroid problems. My GP insisted that my TSH of 2.8 [0.5-5] in the middle of the normal range and so was as normal as it was possible to be - WRONG!
post your results if you want some input on them, there's a lot of people on here that have been through it all!
Charting food and drink isn't going to reveal anything about your thyroid.
Be careful! It sounds to me you're just being humored.
I agree with everyone here that MDs will often tell you results are "perfect"... "normal"... "couldn't be better"... and they're dead wrong.
We'll still be here for you after all that charting gets you nowhere.
well i go to her on mon, i will ask for a printout of them then, i will post them as soon as i get into work after that appt...thanks all for being so caring, sometimes i really wonder and i know i will get ease of mind here
