| | Advice for new Hashimoto's Diagnosis
I was diagnosed last week with Hashimoto's. My antibodies were 981 and 184--apparently they should have been less than 35 and 20 respectively. I just started on 75mcg of Synthroid. Any advice? I am not overweight, but have been desparately trying to lose 10-15 pounds for the past year. I work out 5 times a week with a trainer and monitor my food carefully. I have also had horrible mood swings and other strange things that my docs attibuted to hormones or anxiety for the past year. Even one endo told me that nothing was wrong--after seeing 2 fairly large nodules on my thyroid. I have now found a top endo in a major city & finally feel like I'm getting somewhere.
