Finally have another appointment at an Endocrinologist for a second opinion. This doctor was recommended by a co-worker, but I have to wait till March. My husband is getting concerned with my condition. This past weekend I had food poisoning and was sick for a good 24 hours. I’m so frustrated with this whole situation. I have read other’s posts, I would like to know what diet has been working for you. I have been trying to stick to eating chicken, turkey and fish. Staying away from anything with gluten, soy and oils ( other than coconut or olive oil). Mostly organic fruits and vegetables. If anyone has any other thoughts or advice, I would really appreciate it..
I'm just curious the meds that I'm on they have my legs giving out on me and confusion and forgetfulness so bad I'll forget something 5 minutes later
I had radioactive iodine when I was 15, now I’m 29 and thinking about children. Has anyone had radioactive iodine and gotten pregnant afterwards? Was it extremely difficult to get pregnant? All of my research has terrified me.
I was diagnosed with Graves Disease in 2021. For the last couple of weeks, I have been experiencing leg cramps and extreme fatigue. I have trouble getting up in the morning. Have anybody else experienced this?
I got diagnosed with Grave’s Disease in 2021. It took a little over 7 months to finally get the dosage right. However, now I’m considering trying to get pregnant. My doctor decided to switch my medication to Propylthiouracil just in case. The other option he suggested is radioactive iodine. Has anyone else ever been treated with these methods?
I haven’t been diagnosed with Graves but I think I may have it. Can anyone share their experiences with it?
I was recently diagnosed with subclinical hyperthyroidism/graves with a TSH dropping from 1.6 to .18 in 3 months, normal T3 T4 TSI of 18.6 . I'm experiencing many symptoms, some have subsided since I've been on propylthiouracil but they found 2 nodules on my thyroid and I've been waiting for an appt with a new Endo for months now and I'm beginning to lose hope, I know the TSI is way above normal range, but I don't know the severity of it being that my previous Endo wasn't very helpful/informative. I'm curious what everyone's numbers were and what treatment route you've taken to stabilize yourself. I want to start a family soon and I know I need to get it under control first, so I am trying to stay proactive , but it's hard when I'm unsure about everything. tyia 😁
Im 25 years old and i've recently been diagnosed with subclinical hyperthyroidism/graves and PCOS as of late last year. my fiance and I were going to start trying for a baby when I got the diagnosis' therefore putting an end to that until it's under control. I've been to 2 endos and currently waiting for an appt with a third who will hopefully take the fact I want to start trying for a child asap because I know its going to be harder for me especially with the PCOS. I guess I just want to know if anyone else struggles with both conditions and to hear your stories.. I'm beginning to lose hope and I want nothing more than to be a mother, but not at the risk of the baby.. any and all comments are welcome and encouraged.
Has anyone dealt with fatigue after a total thyroidectomy?
I am curious if anyone else has severe pain like debilitating LBP? I've suffered from body pain for as long as I can remember. my doctor doesn't seem to think Grave's causes body pain. TYIA
Hi all. I was diagnosed with Graves my freshman year of college at 18. Since then I’ve gone through three endos. I struggle so much with the day to day symptoms - mostly the fatigue, anxiety, and brain fog. I had a thyroid storm last year six months after having my son. It feels like I’m completely alone. My husband and no one in my family has chronic diseases so I feel very alone most of the time. I mostly joined to feel more seen. Anyone else?
I have multiple autoimmune diseases. The one I’m having Great issue with is Graves’ disease, and my dosing of medication. They pulled me off Synthroid put me on Tirosint, due to celiac. They still cannot get my levels after a year, in optimal range. They will have me do 2-100mg and 5-88mcg a week. Tuesday and Friday is the 100, Monday Wednesday Thursday Saturday and Sunday is the 88. I cannot get the feeling regulated in my body, I either feel like I’m crashing on the 88 or I feel like I’m hyper on the 100. Can anybody please give me any suggestions. If I just take the straight 88 all week my levels go low, if I take the 100 all week they go too high. This is why they have me splitting up the week doing both. Any suggestions please I would love to hear them. Thank you guys very much.
Can't really find the numbers or range I'm looking for online. My labs have gotten a bit worse since last time I had them done, and i was wondering if anyone knew the general range for t4 and t3 in people who have graves disease. I can find the numbers for like the average individual, but not those of people with graves. Anyone have some insight? (Trying to figure out just how bad my levels are, but i dont have anything to compare them to) Thanks!
Has anyone been diagnosed with Graves Disease and numbers started to look like hypothyroidism? How do you find out if you have both graves and Hashimotos? Do you swing between hyper and hypo when you have both?
