This patient was seen because of skin infections. The dog was bradycardic. I ran a t4 assay and the reading was below 0.5 normal is 1.1 -4.0. When i see these sort of lesions on a patient i always try to rule out #hypothyroidism. I have put this patient on #levothyroxine and cefalexine. I have asked the owner for a r check in 2 weeks.

So I have hypothyroidism? I'm reading the symptoms and I don't have many. Yes I'm considered over weight but not huge. I function normally. I do usually take a nap but I can do without them as well(and have done without them when working 2 jobs recently). I had enough energy for 2 jobs and I usually walk to work which is over a mile. So I feel healthy. Mood swings... when things are shitty yes I get moody.. I have always cried in private when I needed to. Nothing about me has changed since my perfectly normal blood test came out 2 years ago. #levothyroxine #hypothyroidism

I'm going to do a thyroid post so if you're not interested in this then jog on 🔸What is a thyroid?🔸 Your thyroid is a gland in your throat, it produces different hormones that influence many things, but is most commonly known to affect your metabolism. It usually affects women or adults in the later stages of their life or in my case i was diagnosed at 18, but it's thought I had been suffering for a long time prior. 🔸how I found out🔸
So, thyroid disease does run in my family. In January I suffered with excessive and ongoing periods. I went to the doctors and was told it was nothing until one day I got out of bed took two steps and collapsed, I knew there was something very wrong. After 2 months of bleeding constantly and losing a lot of iron in my blood causing #anemia the doctors took me seriously but they didn't know WHAT was wrong. I was tested for #pregnancy (negative) STIs (negative) kidney problems, blood diseases, #endometriosis , #pcos , and finally #thyroid. All of this took multiple trips to the doctors and hospital for blood tests and ultrasound scans.
When my thyroid test came through, I was found to have #subclinicalhypothyroidism which meant I was on the edge of having an #underactivethyroid . I was not given treatment until late March when it finally stopped producing any hormones. 🔸symptoms?🔸 Because the thyroid controls so much, you can suffer hundreds of symptoms. A few (I really do mean a few) of mine were:
Disrupted periods
Chronic fatigue
Iron deficiency
Inability to concentrate
Insomnia
Migraines 🔸how is it treated🔸
Unfortunately there is no "cure" but a thyroid can be managed with #levothyroxine a drug to mimic the hormones that I'm missing. I am on medication for the rest of my life because of this (#autoimmunedisease) it takes a long time and a lot of blood tests to find the right dosage for each individual, I even took too much at one point and developed #hyperthyroidism or #factitioushyperthyroidism when I found the right dosage I felt like a new woman 💪🏼

Very very happy! Finally found out what's the matter with me! My thyroid isn't working and my brains been working overtime to get it to work, which is why I've been so bard and feeling like absolute shit! Should feel better in a week ☺ yaay 😌#thyroidproblems #levothyroxine

.....The life of an autoimmune disease. Pills everyday....with slim to no chance of ever getting off of daily meds. Oh well! Imma buy a pink bottle just to jazz it up a little 😁 #autoimmuneprotocol #levothyroxine #tpoab #hashimotos

It's been a week since I started my meds for #hypothyroidism #hashimotosdisease && it's also been a week since I've TAKEN A NAP😭 for the last 10 months, I've had to schedule a 20 min nap as part of my day bc THATS THE ONLY WAY I'D BE ABLE TO FUNCTION && make it throughout the day. Being tired was the norm. I woke up tired. I was always tired. I was tired of being tired😭 I also notice being myself more affectionate with my family && I'm not as grumpy😊. My clothes do feel tighter && the only ab I had left is almost gone🤷🏼‍♀️ but that doesn't matter; not anymore. I feel so much better && I hope I'm not jinxing myself and things only get better for me🙏🏼 // anyone else take #levothyroxine? I'm taking 50mg right now && will be back for blood work in 5 weeks to see if that's the right amount for me. So far no jitters {which was my concern}, THANK GOD🙏🏼

oh no isa nalang, im gonna die 😂 #euthyrox #euthyrox100 #levothyroxine #gravesdisease #hypothyroidism

11 a day keeps the doctor away 💁🏻 I've had so many people make comments about how much medication I take and 'it's not good for you' statements. I have a chemical imbalance in my brain. I need medication to live a stable and happy life. Never be ashamed of having to rely on tablets. Thyroxine, Lamictal, Effexor, Abilify, Zopiclone, Phenegarn & Diazepam. #bpd #borderlinepersonalitydisorder #mentalillness #mentalhealth #mentalhealthawareness #mentalwellbeing

New blog is up. Some good news at last ❤️#blog #thyroid #cancer #thyroidcancer #chronicillness #hyperthyroidism #levothyroxine #t4 #t3 #tsh

Got my biannual thyroid check this past week. I knew something was up with my energy levels and ... yup ... the thyroid was off. So my doctor switched me to a lower dose of Levothyroxine. No more Armour.

I'm feeling a difference, which is good, but we'll start seeing the bigger effects in the next couple of months (hopefully). I'm just hoping my energy levels are better and the new meds help make losing weight easier. It should.
I'd really like to lose 30lbs before November, but we'll see. If that doesn't happen at least a good 30-35 before my 100 miler in February.

Goals, goals, goals. It's been hard making weight loss goals with Hashimoto's, because the thyroid is so fickle. I just want consistency. And, I'm hopeful I'm on the right track.

My DiaWipes just came, these are a lifesaver when I'm away from home because I don't have to find a place to wash my hands. I've been feeling really tired lately because I keep forgetting to take my levothyroxine UGH
