Thyroid is sabbotaging me!

Saturday, March 27, 2010

I am tired of my thyroid causing problems, so I am starting on:

Terry Naturally Thyroid Care
and Terry Naturally Tri-Iodine

together hopefully my Thyroid will begin to function better, as the doctor does not want to put me on Synthroid until he really HAS to because of the high risk of my thyroid QUITTING if we do.

    The doctor used radioactive iodine to kill my over active thyroid in 1979. I take Levothyroxine daily and have been doing just fine. I am way overweight, but I was that way when my thyroid was overactive.

    Thirty years has shown that I can operate quite well with the various thyroid medications. I have to admit that the thyroid and parathyroid can easily sabotage weight loss efforts. Hang in there, you will eventually overcome.

    My dh has been on thyroid since '81 and does fine with it. His was overactive--so bad that he ate everything in the house and still was loosing weight and heart rate was racing. Had to go on meds to slow it down before he could have surgery to remove most of it. I sure hope the treatment works for you so you don't have to go through with that. Don't give up, stay positive if you can.

    What a great attitude!! I am hoping that you are able to stay off of drugs if it can have such a dramatic effect. I am pulling for you. Take care.

    I have hypothroidism also. I didn't realize that taking thyroid medication could cause your thyroid to quit functioning. That gives me something to look into. Anyway, keep us posted as to how it's going for you. Best wishes always!
