To cut a long story short, my teenage daughter has had two lots of Isotretinion therapy over the last two years. Whilst on the most recent therapy she started to complain of feeling cold all the time, losing her eyebrows, tiredness and a recent blood test revealed high cholesterol. All these, to me, pointed to her thyroid. I asked for a blood test which they would only do after she had been off the medication for 8 weeks, as I found a study which showed that it interferes with the thyroid! They acknowledged this, but said her thyroid would recover completely.
Anyway even though they are in range (only just) I'm so annoyed it had to be me that instigated the tests. Is it likely that the thyroid will recover completely? She is feeling a little better, but her eyebrows have not grown back. She stopped the Isotretnion in September and these results are from mid November.
