My Health Update

My Health Update: Thanks to my Stepdad for going to our doctor and requesting a referral for me to see a Endocrinologist(Thyroid Specialist) which I saw her yesterday and she was amazing/awesome/lovely/gentle/funny and human lol she asked me all the right questions and said I have Autoimmune Hypo Thyroiditis which is a chronic disease in which the body interprets the thyroid glands and its hormone products T3, T4 and TSH as threats, therefore producing special antibodies that target the thyroid’s cells, thereby destroying it.
It may present with hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism and with or without a goiter. Thank God I don’t have a goiter as she checked my neck and she made me swallow to check she was very thorough with me she checked my pulse which was good my blood pressure which was good my weight which wasn’t that good I’ve put on a couple of kilos even though I have cut out wheat and dairy from my eating plan but because of my fatigue I’m having trouble exercising she even checked my height. This morning I went and got yet another blood test as requested by my Endo this time I got a reverse T3 a complete blood test which includes vitamin D test as well. I’m going for a ultra sound on my pelvis on Thursday and I’m getting new different Thyroid medication which is being upped from 50mgs to 75mgs and this medication doesn’t need to be kept in the fridge whoo hoo because it has no lactose in it which could be why the ones I’ve been on aren’t making feel better as I’m allergic to dairy. Oh she also said that my sores on all over my skin everywhere on my body are just itchy bites because I’m a allergic person and then she showed me hers and they looked exactly the same lol. So I finally have some concrete answers and hopefully I’m on the long road to helpful treatment. Eating plan update: I’m doing well with my new no wheat and no dairy eating plan my stepdad bought me yesterday no wheat no gluten no nut Cocoa Puffs which I had this morning with almond milk and I also had a coffee with rice milk once you work out what works with what it’s not too bad.

      1. Still sounds like a step in the right direction, sometimes changes in meds can bring on migraines, Lynne’s had them after dose changes in her thyroid meds, hope you are feeling better 🙂

  1. Yeah for sure the hardest part is convincing a gp to give out a referal to see a specialist it’s true finding the right doctor is crucial in getting help with Thyroid problems. Thank You so much for that Neil poor Lynne I know how she feels it’s great to have both your support through this. I’m feeling a little better today I’m going to have a nap this arvo so I can watch my two fave tv shows back to back tonight Supernatural and The Strain from 930pm to 11.30pm 🙂
