So happy to have found this group, as I have been recently diagnosed with Hashimoto's. I was diagnosed a year ago with thyroid disease, and also PCOS about 8 years now. But in retrospect, I think I have had Hashimoto's much longer. I am suffering terribly with all of the major symptoms: weight gain (I am 5"2 & 200 lbs), extreme hair loss, fatigue, insomnia, mood swings, high blood pressure, bad skin, etc. I have been to a series of Endocrinologist's, and as you may already know they have been useless. When I was diagnosed I was told I have a small lump on my thyroid (not cancerous, and that I didn't need to be put on medication, just monitor my diet and exercise. Since my last visit I have done a ton of research and have begun to try and heal my body thru food, diet, supplements and Lugol's iodine. I have an upcoming appointment this Thursday with a new Endo as I am hoping to get a prescription for Nature Thyroid or Westhroid. But wanted to get the community's opinion on my test result so I am a bit more educated when I speak with the doctor. Here are my initial results from last year- T4: 5.7, T3: 93, TSH: 1.13, Free T4: 0.85, Anti Mitochondrial Abs: negative, Thyroid Peroxidase Ab: H 77. I appreciate your input and advice, thank you all in advance for your support!
