Re: follow-up: daughter with mixed labs/symptoms
I have seven family members in my family with Graves, Hashimoto's, or Hashimoto's and Graves.
All are serious conditions that need to be watched and monitored. Having been one of those with Hashimoto's and Graves I can personally attest to the pain and stress of knowing something is wrong with my body, having antibody proof out the waz and no MD willing to step I. And help because I was too young and blood work was normal in range.
If the antibodies are there it is only a matter of time. A good thyroid savvy md can help with diet regime, routine monitoring of blood levels and antibody activity as well as other supplementation.
I blame my thyroid for most everything... Because it is responsible for Sooooo much of my issues. I concur with Midwest. Do not rule out Graves yet. Was your daughter tested for Hashimoto's as well. It is possible to have both and having both changes symptoms and progression of thyroid destruction and failure. I have many threads out there on my initial thyroid war issues.
I wish you and your family the best!
If we learn by our mistakes, I am working on one hell of an education.
