Re: my future
I'm not certain the doctors know for sure what happens to our bodies when there is no thyroid for the antibodies to attack. My doctor believes that the antibodies do nothing, as they target thyroid receptors and binding proteins. My thyroid was removed after cancer, and my doc thinks it's just fine to let the antibodies remain. I'm not so sure about this, so I take Maca.
There have been a couple of previous threads here that discuss this. You might find them interesting:
