Good you are getting checks, but there are a lot of us on meds with autoimmune diseases, me including, I've been on it for a year now. Its very important to get every test done, I'm also very iron deficient and struggling to raise mine after 6 months so now I'm being referred.

Your Endo seems alot better than my last 3 ones, but I would not know what she means by people with auto immune and taking carbs?? I've been on this site for a year and there are a lot of us with graves and hashi.

But at the moment it sounds you are getting everything you need, keep on top if your blood tests every month as well, yes pm me anytime,i hope you get more replies.xx
