First I want to say how excited I was to find this board. I know very little about this subject so I usually try to forget that I even have it.
I was diagnosed sometime during the summer. I am now on medication and have been told the level is okay.
Some of my questions are:
Should I be seeing an endocronologist (sp?) or is my regular dr. okay? Actually, I see an ARNP.
How often should I be rechecked?
Once the correct level of medication has been determined, can it change?
I also suffer from major depression. How can I tell if my depressed times are from the depression or from low thyroid? Or can I tell?
I have gained a LOT of weight. I thought I would be able to lose it once I got on meds. Why can't I?
I am also bulimic so being able to lose some weight would be very helpful.
I know this is long. Thanks to all who stuck with it. I will post again and possibly with more questions. There seems to be a wealth of knowlege here.
