a problem ?All it means is that my immune system is attacking my thyroid- but he seemed to think all was well and no more damage could be done now) I was lead to believe that if you have thyroid antibodies that it will eventually destroy the thyroid.?
I found the endo very personable and seemed to know a great deal about his subject, and although i showed him my blood tests , and he said my cortisol levels were fine, most of my bloods were normal . I mentioned to him that i was still shaking and still sweating a great deal and still had tinitius,..I asked him what i could eat with this condition as i had previously hardly eaten for a few days and id put on another 8 lbs, which i found incredible since id hardly eaten,. Also i had some crumpets and the next day i was so ill i could hardly move i was in so much pain. He said i may have a problem with my stomach, so he would send me for some stomach tests later, in about three months,
I said i was getting really bad pains across my thighs and i was unable to sleep at night as i also sweat a great deal then too..and have to go to the loo a great deal. He has given me a 24 hr urine test to do , and says that my bloods show that i have no oestrogen which could be that i am menopausal and this is probably the cause of why i am feeling so bad,, also i cant go on hrt as my breast cancer was hormonal,and the sage leaf natural hormone may or may not help,, so he would think about putting me on colonadine after the urine test.!!
I was amazed he didnt call my thyroid disease hashimotos and said that it was just a varying degree of borderline hypothyroidism , and he said its very usual to have these antibodies with this condition!!
Im still very confused,, I took my brother as my memory is rubbish at the moment and i have to keep reminders of everything.. please can someone enlighten me about these aniti bodies as the endo said in some cases they can make the thyroid over active and in cases like mine its blocked it off entirely?
Please can someone unconfuse me?
my gp told me i hadnt started the menopause yet my endo thinks i have? i wasnt taking the sage leaf at the time of my last blood test.
