wasnt sure of what to do for thus blog, I don't have my thinking brain on today haha!
So i decided to do an easy on my expierience of Hypothyroidism!..I think it was about a month or two after I had beeen diagnosed with Type one diabetes and I was in for a visit to my diabetic nurse, not an Endo appointment just a small check up:)..She noticed my hands were very orange/yellow in colour and also my skin, she thought it was my make up or fak tan or something but i assured her i hadn't worn makeup that day haha!
She took a blood test and so on and called me in to inform me i had thyroid problems another symptom was I was very short and wasn,t growing at all(still haven't)i'm still only 4'11 haha!, I wasn't too happy beacuse I was just coming to grips with D. But as she showed me the tiny tablets I would have to take, I was feeling better about it already!
The doc first perscribed 150mg of Eltroxine. After I had been on the tablets i atill wasn;t getting much better and the skin was still the same and I was putting on so much weight all at once! Like 2 kilo in 2 weeks :/ I went to my Endo and the doc told me the chemist had thought the perscription said just 15mg!!! so for about 3 months i was taking 15 mg when in fact i should have been taking 150!!!:O
So i took the two tiny tablets everyday and that also became routine for me, I thought there was more serious diseases people have to go through and i was lucky the two of my conditions could be so easily controled!...More blood tests were run and eventually I needed to reduce the amount of Eltroxine I was taking down to 100mg, and after that everything was fine !. I was 13 when I foound out i had hypothyroid and im 16 now and still on the 100mg and feeling great and happy!!After all it's really nothing we can't handle and i feel very lucky that u do not have anything more serious !
