Yearly Check up
Wednesday, February 06, 2013
It's that time again. Had to do bloodwork to check on all the stats.
Thyroid levels a little off but doc & I aren't surprised with me not having a thyroid and I have been on same level meds for almost 5 years. So, upping dose a bit. Will have to check levels in a few months to see if it is enough.
I suspect I will feel the impact in a few weeks (once meds have a chance to get in my system). Hoping some of the tiredness will go away. Know that I will always be limited to the energy the darn little pills supply.
Good news...blood sugars, hemoglobins and cholesterol are all great!
Blood pressure was slightly up but doc thinks part of thyroid being off. That is how we caught the Grave's to begin with....my blood pressure was through the roof and making feel real funny.
Doc and I talked again about weight but said that it is great I have been at a steady weight all these years after the ablation. Would rather I was at a steady weight then yo-yoing. Suspects that upping the synthroid may spur a modest weight loss. We will see.
So, overall can't complain too much. Will keep on trying my best to make good food choices and increasing activity where I can. Hope this will improve as well with the dose increase. Hate having just enough energy to get through work and then crashing as soon as home.
Thank goodness I have a daughter and husband that both understand and try really hard to support me and not get upset when I crash. Still it is hard to not be able to get through a TV show or movie with them in the evenings. Barely have time to talk about school, homework and finish dinner.
