Re: Input on Thyroid symptoms and turning from hyper to hypo?!
Sometimes in NONautoimmune cases it is transient and caused by an illness or some other trigger. However once you have had it, you are at higher risk to have it again.
Have you been tested for the thyroid antibodies? Do they know for sure it is not Hashimotos or Graves' disease. If it is autoimmune in nature, it is yours to keep through sickness and health until death do you part. Knowing is just part of the battle, but an important part in my opinion.
I have both graves and Hashimotos antibodies flitting about my body. Hashimotos has beat my graves into submission, but it can still cause me issues like graves eye disease and more.
It is important to get treated optimally and keep all thyroid functions monitored closely.
If we learn by our mistakes, I am working on one hell of an education.
