update from my endorcinologist

So I went to the Endocrinologist today after getting a bit of an abnormal thryoid reading from my OBGYN. She basically told me I MIGHT have Hashimotos Disease. Its an AUto Immune disease where basically your body treats your thyroid like a germ and attacks it. Worst case senario, Hashimotos goes untreated and eventually your body kills off your thyroid and I would be on synthetic thyroid meds for the rest of my life. She redrew all my thyroid levels, my prolactin, LH, and all sex hormones. I should have the results back by wednesday, and then from there she will decided what I need to take as far as meds. Its a bit scary but Im so glad I went and had everything checked!

Glad you got it checked out. My DH and MIL both have Hashimoto's - routine blood tests and a pill a day keep it controlled =). My MIL's thyroid was almost gone when they found hers, so don't be scared, it was caught early for you!

I'm so glad you got it all checked out!  Please keep us posted and know that it's great a pill can keep it controlled.  I have Endocrinology probs so if you ever need to chat - I'm here :)
