Re: hyper & hypo thyroid, What to do?
I understand distrust of doctors! They do not know everything and can miss some things. But understand this, that doctors usually undertreat thyroid problems, not overtreat it.
If you are in post partum symptoms, yes, do allow for a space of time for this to pass, and for your thyroid to rebalance.
But do follow up with tests to be sure your thyroid is functioning as YOU need.
If your thyroid is hyper, you will need treatment or you risk heart attack.
If your med is too much, you can risk the same thing.
Yet, too low thyroid is just as dangerous.
Find a doctor that will listen to your symptoms and learn what you need to know to understand which symptoms you may be having so you can report them...don't play around with this by yourself! TF
