I was diagnosed with Polyglandular Autoimmune Syndrome on Sept. 11, 2001 in Canada. As a result I now live with Type 1 Diabetes, Addison's disease and for 16 years I had hashimoto's disease. I have done well replacing with Synthroid (levethyroxine) for the hypothyroid, cortisol and florinef for Addison's disease and insulin for diabetes. About a year ago my thyroid gland started working again and now it has become overactive. I have been sick a lot these days frequently going into Adrenal crisis in the mornings and many blood sugar drops. I ended up in the hospital on the weekend and they believe I now have Graves Disease! I am now taking Tapazole and have increased my cortisol replacement doses to cope with the Adrenal stress. They did NOT do a TSI test, instead did a TSH antibody receptor test as well as testing TSH T3 and T4. I am going to meet with the Endocrinologist next week to hear the results of the antibody test but after reading information on this board I am wondering if he is going to be able to confirm if it is Graves because if he did not test TSI? I do have a large asymmetrical goiter on the right lobe of the thryoid measuring 9.5 cm.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.
