Hi, I haven't experienced any side effects yet, but I've only taken three dosages so far.

Ever since the doctor told me I'm anemic, it's probably all in my head, but I'm feel tired more and notice how thin and weak my fingernails are. I've never been able to grow my nails even though I keep them manicured. Also whenever I take a shower and wash my hair I lose lots of strands of hair, like a small pile every morning. Is this all signs of being anemic?
Cathy--It's an autoimmune disease that effects the thyroid function. It makes you Hypothyroid. Correct name is Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. When tested I had antibodies in my blood, that is how they determine a DX, along with testing the TSH. I also had an ultrasound that showed inflammation of the gland. Then they started me on Synthroid.

At your age you should be tested for thyroid function. You don't necessarily have to have the autoimmune part. It's worth checking because thyroid function can change as we age. FLFLOWERGIRL:)
