change in bowel habit?

Hi there,
Has anyone noticed any change in their bowel habits after being on thyrohormone replacement? And if so how has it changed for you?

Re: change in bowel habit?

It gets better and better with proper thyroid treatment. Before treatment, I was so constipated with acid indigestion.

When the T4 started getting into my system, I had several bowel movements in a day at first. This is mostly because it gets quite packed in the intestines for awhile, and it all wants to come out.

Now since being on proper treatment, I have a bowel movement in about 10 minutes from awakening in the morning. It is not a small one either.

Re: change in bowel habit?

well i've been taking thyrohormone for 19 months now. And I've noticed that now i go every day as soon as i wake up.And it's quite soft . No constipation at all. Soft stools and sometimes completely unformed.
Could it be the pill? I also drink french coffee, not instant one !.
I was just wondering.Because it's been going on for 6 months now.
