Hi everyone! Have come here for some advice and support please. I have just been diagnosed as Hyperthyroid (on Wednesday) and have been taking Carbi and Propranolol beta blocker. I am 25 and generally very healthy. I am also 6 months postpartum and breastfeeding. I am scheduled for blood tests on Monday to check for antibodies, but postpartum is the favourite guess at the moment. I was only given one number from my thyroid level test which was 39 (GP then said high normal is 24) could anyone tell me if this is TSH, T3 or T4? Or none of the above? I'm very new to all this and have been struggling as I felt so ill but have had my child to look after, breastfeefing does not give much of a break. I am also awaiting an appointment with an endo, who I coincidentally know. I have downloaded Dr Peatfields book as it came recommended, however there is only one chapter on Hyper! Does anyone have experience of nursing on these meds, postpartum Thyroiditis and could anyone explain antibody tests to me please? Thanks so much in advance.
