I have a rare condition - subacute thyroiditis. No idea why it happened, it just did. Thyroid just blew up, dumped its hormones in me, took months to cycle out. Now I'm heading... (5 replies)
Just a little background info. I started out a couple years ago on a 1/2 grain of Armour Thyroid and a doc who said I had addrenal issues and couldn't eat gluten and my thyroid would correct itself.
Fast forward a couple years and 2 doctors later and I am not on only Nature Throid, 1 1/2 grain in morning and 1 grain in afternoon (took cytomel in between also)/

... Hi! I was on this forum back in 2011 - and then promptly disappeared as I got "better" (and also had a few very, very stressful years).
Fast forward to now - and I'm back! I went to the dr`s because of pain in my abdomen. She was able to feel my liver and told me it was enlarged. I went for an abdominal ultrasound - everything appears ok. Got my bloodwork back - and not... (0 replies)

... Just diagnosed hypo last week and in reading EVERYTHING I can about thyroids suddenly I realized that it may be the source of my 15 year old son's 2+ year battle with illness. To make a long story shorter about 2-3 years ago he began breaking his bones, about one every 4 or 5 months. He always feels sick, taking his temperature several times a week because he assumes since he... (1 replies)

History: 43 years old, married, two kids, 14 and 11. Probably hyperT the majority of my life. You know, where you can eat anything and not gain an ounce? Averaged 110 lbs on a 5'7" medium frame. Even dropped back down to 110 lbs after having my first child.

... Hi Aussiejenni,
Actually, I am not taking T3. I have been on T4 for 6 weeks and just had my FT3 checked. Two months ago, before starting on T4, my labs were as follows
FT4 0.9 (0.9-1.8)
TT3 87 (80-180)
Did not measure FT3, even though I asked for it
One week later
TSH 2.3 (6 replies)
... I think it would be great if my labs printed percentiles for my TSH and FT4 values so that my Dr would be less likely to declare them as perfect because they are "in range." Does anyone know where I can find thyroid lab percentiles? ... (6 replies)

... Hi guys, I'd appreciate some help interpreting my lab results.
During my annual blood test for PKD (Polycystic Kidney Disease), I somehow got a TSH test too, which was high. Redoing TSH and adding FT4, I got these values:
FT4: 0.9 (normal 0.8-1.7 ng/dL) - 11%
TSH: 11.1 (normal 0.2-5.5 uIU/mL)
Sounds like hypo, right? I only have the lab results so far, I haven't... (2 replies)

I have Hashimotos and phase 2 adrenal fatigue. For years I was on 5mcg of Cytomel and had fairly good results except for hair loss. I realize now I was anxious which probably contributed/caused my adrenal fatigue. I am now taking 15 mg of Armour and feel pretty good. My... (1 replies)
