hello everyone!

hello.  i thought i would start this group after finding that so many people on here have hypothyroidism (i suggest using the abbreviation hyper and hypo instead of the full name).  please use this for advice, tips, suggestions, problems, Q&A, venting and whatever else you need.

Hi, I am glad you started this group. I have dealt with both sides of the coin. I was diagnosed with Hyper when I was 18 years old and for over a year dealt with that side of the coin and at 19 I became Hypo (after having iodine radiation treatment). I am still on hormone replacement and I am now 28 years old.

glad you joined.  i had symptoms for years before i was diagnosed.  i think i was like 15 or 16 when i was diagnosed.  i am now 32.  i have hoshimotos which is a specific form of hypo.  i am on armour thyroid and synthroid.  i go to a dr in ga that keeps a close check on me.  hopefully within the next year my thyroid will be balanced.

I am so glad you started this group.  I was diagnosed last year and still working on getting my thyroid balanced.  I hope it is soon because I want to lose a lot of weight before my wedding.
