Found a new doc in April (4hrs away) -- and finally got a diagnosis of Hashimoto's... (Thanks to a couple of you for giving me that Diagnosis before I had seen the Doc.) also some food allergies. Still feeling like crap in July - so Doc put me on Adren-all supplement, (poss adrenal fatigue.) The bottle almost done and still no difference. I take Vitamin D, Chromium Picolinate, Synthroid 112 , and a probiotic, prilosec..... I do feel a little better since my Synthroid was changed from Generic to Brand necessary. and my hair isn't falling out as much now either.
I was told in April to not go to the gym anymore since this may cause inflammation. also to go gluten free, which I have . I was to "just walk" and do "yoga".... pfft (the gym was my stress reliever)
2 weeks ago I noticed the right side of my thyroid swollen (as I just finished on the treadmill). called new Doc the next day and she ask if someone local could order an ultrasound, as she could not..thought that was strange......so last week I had an appt with my GP and she said that she didn't see anything out of the ordinary--no ultrasound ordered. I have put on over 60 pounds in the last 5-6 years -- the last 10 was just recently -....... SO --- my GP referred my to a local ENDO to whom I have an appt with tomorrow
I have been on this struggle for 5 years or more with only being diagnosed Hypothyroid. And that same doc that diagnosed me Hypo 5 years ago also gave me Insulin Resistance and metabolic syndrome X..... which new doc in April didn't think this at all. I have been told that I am a healthy fat person. oh how nice is that. So I am gluten free, with food allergies and I can now jut eat dirt and make mud pies. I am just soo frustrated and disappointed. I have trouble sleeping.. Any suggestions on what to discuss with this new ENDO tomorrow.... below are my labs from June
Hemoglobin A1c5.9 4.8-5.6%
Any suggestions??? I still feel tired and achy - -my knees hurt real bad.
