Thyroid labs

I just got a call from my sons Endo. His yearly bloodwork showed an elevated level of thyroid auto anti-bodies and a slightly elevated TSH level. His free thyroid hormone was normal. She mentioned the possibility of Hashimoto's thyroiditis, and said that he would have to get quarterly blood work now, instead of yearly. I'm pretty stressed out about this, because my son hates bloodwork. Also, it was just his four-year diabetes anniversary yesterday. He had an awful night with lots of wild blood…See More

What I'd like to see is an intensive summer sports institute for young athletes with T1D. It would be an amazing opportunity…See More
