Thanks MLGREENW! I have an endo, but maybe I need to find another. I see her again in February (which feels like forever away) and maybe then we can make some progress. Until then, we'll just float along in our boat! LOL!
Wish I could help, but I am in the same boat with ya:) Its the boat that doesn't go anywhere. Its been three years and I still can't get stable periods or TSH levels, and I don't even have a thyroid anymore to worry about, just taking a pill. It has helped that my doc is not as worried about me being a little hyperthyroid as my levels average around 1 most of the time. And it is working better for me to have a higher synthroid dose to balance out the metformin and things I eat that absorb the T4. But I don't know if that will work for you as you still have a thyroid to soak up iodine and "soy lec" etc. Good luck. Best advice-find an AWESOME endocrinologist. Never settle-that has made worlds of difference for me.
Hey everyone. Well, here's the situation. I have PCOS and am on Metformin. I also have hypothyroidism and am on Eltroxin. I have no idea if anyone has any suggestions how to keep both in check. Annoyingly, they contradict each other sometimes (e.g. Soy Lec. is great for PCOS but a no no for the thyroid). I'm eating relatively low carb (which works for both)but I am stalling with my weight loss. Once I get one under control (normal TSH levels) I lose my period for a year. Once I get a period, my TSH levels go all haywire. The doctor referral is in, but it is eons in the future. Help?
