Not bad, seeing as how I never thought anyone would read the blog lol! 😂 #hashimotos #autoimmunedisease #fatigue #autoimmune #levothyroxine

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.

.....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

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

Strange post coming from me but I feel like it's ok to share now: This morning I am very thankful for #levothyroxine a synthetic Thyroid medication that has helped me normalize energy levels, not get sick as frequently, and start to loose weight again. Soon after the "Epic" (2014) half marathon I became very ill-- like couldn't get out of bed for more than a brief bit ill-- it was mono and then a diagnosis of Hashimoto's, an autoimmune disease that attacks your thyroid. I toughed most of this out naturally with rest but in the past few months I could feel things changing for the worst. That's right-- two plus years of fighting my own body and trying to rest enough to recharge to make it to certain goals. Your thyroid controls a lot of components in your body. When it's not functioning you have no energy, you can get sick easier, you have brain fog, you have intolerance to hot or cold, you gain weight. My doctor found a medication that works for me and we are seeing results. This doesn't go away. You live with it forever. So again, I'm thankful for these once a day pills that help me be part of the life I love. #hashimotos #thyroid #thankful

So today I was officially diagnosed with hypothyroidism. Relieved they've found something wrong and my symptoms aren't all in my imagination and sad that I'm now on tablets for the rest of my life (I barely take a headache tablet!) #hypothyroidism #levothyroxine #underactivethyroid

**i don't rlly do this kinda post but I've been so torn up about my acne that I'd figure I'd share what works rlly well for making my skin AWESOME (minus the med/hormore induced static acne) like honestly my skin is bomb other than the acne spots/my picking and these products help nurture/heal said spots to the best ability.. that said prevention is unavoidable at this time through any topical treatments due to extreme white blood cell counts**
they're in the order I use them and all freaking bomb products.. didn't include my occasional masks/exfoliation products, just daily routine! N I've been using that Tatcha cleansing oil lately bc I tried the travel size and I like it so far but I usually usually use the @Glossier milky jelly cleanser and I use their Super Pure serum as well but I'm currently out of it )': I also typically prefer a natural rose water, but lately the aloe in the glossier face mist has helped with reducing redness throughout the day!

In honor of getting my monthly blood test results in today here's a #transformationtuesday 🤗 . .

🔹 2015: undiagnosed Hashimotos hypothyroidism (TSH 11.0)
🔸 2017: 2+ years on levothyroxine (TSH 5.05)
.
On the upper photo I legitimately thought I looked fine and I remember taking that photo I really didn't think anything was wrong with me. Pretty obvious symptoms I had were:
❌anemia
❌inability to lose weight
❌critically low energy
❌swollen hands
❌inability to fall asleep
❌inability to wake up
❌panic attacks
❌irregular periods
.
And this is just from the top of my list.
.
Funny thing is what probably triggered and/or caused this was me drastically restricting my food for years and years (800 kcal for 5 yrs ayy lmao 😂). Every morning for the rest of my life when I wake up I'll have to take my pill and wait for 30 minutes to eat. Those 30 minutes are a slap in the face for all the stupid teenage years of skipping breakfast 🙄🙄

I get my daily dose of Levothyroxine everyday. Hopefully it will forever be the only pill I will have to take daily...being that I had a total thyroidectomy...So me and him are friends for life. Lol.

Et sinon on en parle du changement de composition du Levothyrox par les Labo Merck.‼️‼️‼️
Pour mon expérience personnelle, depuis mon redosage en Mai, jusqu'au mois dernier pas de soucis et suite à la chichi du mois dernier les problèmes ont commencé :
*fatigue importante
*Problemes digestifs à ne pouvoir quasi rien manger.
😡😡😡😡
Mais personne n'écoute, tout le monde met cela sur le compte de la chimio qui fatigue mon organisme, OK ça se tient mais force est de constater que le Levothyrox y est pour beaucoup💊 #levothyroxine #levothyrox #merck #effetssecondaires

#Hypothyroidism is estimated to occur in approximately 1 in 300 Americans, and its prevalence increases significantly with #age. Treatment of hypothyroidism revolves around #thyroid hormone replacement therapy, most commonly with levothyroxine, which is well-tolerated with minimal adverse events when administered correctly. Read more about treating subclinical hypothyroidism with #levothyroxine in our August issue at http://ow.ly/B8Wt30eoVJv.

Monday is a good time for some chemistry 1o1.
Do you know the difference between T4 and T3 molecules?
They might not seem to be so different chemically (for a layperson), but their function and the time it takes before they get out of the body (=their half-life) is very different.

That is why it is enough to take T4 replacement (aka Synthyroid or Levothyroxine) once a day.

T3 peaks 6-8 hours after one takes it, and usually needs to be taken several times per day, and is good not to miss taking medication.

Anyone of you has experiences with T3? How often do you take it? What was the best improvement you noticed on this therapy? ❤️ .

New dosage of #levothyroxine means new color. Haha, 4 dosage changes this year, this one's the prettiest so far. Hoping to find the prefect dosage for me soon, these changes are literally exhausting. But yay purple! 💜😊

picked up my meds today. I have love/hate relationship with my tablets. I hate side effects.I hate that if I don't take them I feel like 💩 all day. I hate that I will be taking them for the rest of my life.
sometimes I just want to put them all in the bin,but then I remember that without them I would never be able to lose any weight and achieve my goals. I honestly believe that without them #slimmingworld wouldn't work for me. I tried many diets before I was prescribed my meds and none of them worked. I know that if I was healthy person my #weightloss would be much bigger that 2st 1.5lbs,but I also know that without my meds instead of losing 2 stone I would have gain at least 2 extra ones in last 12 months.
I also know that without them my hormones would be going crazy.
As much as I hate them, without them I would still be waiting for AF. I might still be waiting for my BFP,but I am much more positive now and I do believe that it will happen one day!

Wasn't going to post this purely because I'm so gutted/annoyed etc, but then I remembered that this account is my honest weight loss journey & the support on here is amazing ☺️ So I'm going to be honest, I'm really fucking pissed off about this! I haven't been disastrous this week, I haven't eaten what I wanted when I wanted & this is an unfair gain! The only thing I can put it down to is the thyroid medication I have recently started because since then, I've had 2 gains which have not reflected what I've been eating! I'm so fed up, trying to lose weight with a thyroid that can't decide what it's doing is really beginning to get to me! When it was over weight was slowly coming off, now it's gone under again, the weight loss has slowed! Really wish it would cut me some slack, it's like playing a tug of war game ☹️😤😡😬😫🙄😰 #weightwatchers #weightwatchersuk #weightloss #weightlossjourney #calories #caloriecounting #myfitnesspal #myfitnesspaluk #slimmingworld #slimmingworlduk #ww #wwuk #sw #swuk #underactivethyroid #levothyroxine #weighinday #weighinsaturday

😰 For 11 years I had an irregular #thyroid. My symptoms were excessive #weakness, dry corse #hair, always cold, eye bulging, constant muscle cramps & aches
_
🔹 My specialist recommended me to remove the gland issue radioactively & said I have to take a hormone pill everyday to suffice for what a normal gland does
_
🔹 Even after being on my #Levothyroxine & taking it properly (in the morning on an empty stomach) they kept increasing my dose because my levels were still HIGH. I tried to take other vitamins & take care of myself but it just wasn't working & all my blood tests showed it wasn't
_
🔹 I didn't start feeling better UNTIL I started using these all natural #multivitamins, they weren't even meant for me. I bought them for my #boyfriend but that's what great, our products can be used for MEN AND WOMEN 🙌🏽
_
🔶 As you can see with your own eyes my thyroid levels are FINALLY stable after YEARS of struggling, MY #MIGRAINES ARE GONE, my hair is growing so long & I FEEL like a new person just because of my IT'S VITAL CORE NUTRITION COMPLETE PACK VITAMINS & #GREENS 😫😭 I'm not saying this is a cure for everyone or #hypothyroidism but this is the only new change and it for sure helped me & I am so so relieved!

I have been very #tired lately (barely getting through my #kickboxing this week) & have to get my #levothyroxine levels checked Monday (the joys of living without a #thyroid ). So it's a #blueberry #beet #banana #kale #almondmilk #protein #smoothie to help get me through #strengthtraining & #barre this morning after a mug hot #lemonwater to help boost my #energy levels

Smile on my face says it all. Started my day just right and seeing 5lbs gone on the scale. Moving on the right track.

I ignored the signs for over a year. It felt like a french fry stuck in my throat. I was gaining weight. I was always cold. My fingers were swollen and my knuckles were tight every morning. I experienced afternoon brain fog every day. I was ALWAYS tired.

By the time I convinced myself I had to get checked out I knew something wasn't right.

I got the most uncomfortable biopsy in my neck to be told I had nodules on my thyroid. I had to have surgery.

My story of how to live differently after that had started. Meds. 50lbs to lose.

I don't lose weight as quickly as others but it CAN BE DONE!! I want to help if you are struggling with being hypothyroid. I want to give you hope. Please PM me and let me be part of your story to getting healthy and feeling more like yourself!
