    Ouch, that's rough, do you have to do dialysis or just on meds? Know the guinea pig feeling back from two decades ago when my thyroid gland became overactive, at that time they were doing the 'nuke it' job, being in the bowels of Auckland Hospital with people in NBC suits, yikes!! concrete cup, glass straw, they were trying to kick the gland back into action but hey ho they got the math wrong, and no can't sue in this country without express permission of the High Court, different system here for those types of things. These days they do an operation to cut the gland out, some reckon it would be better to have it nuked, still meds keep me up and running.

    I commend you for your efforts. Unfortunately if something needs done then someone has to stand up and start doing it.

    2 of my daughters have low thyroid. They take a pill to put it back. I guess they have to turn it off if you make too much.

    Prednisone that depletes your bone mass I think, I take prednisone when I get a chest infection, haven't had one for two years. I'm on Levothyroxine which has been giving me some difficulties lately, Doc upped the dose but we have been finding out about natural thyroid from Bovine and or pigs, my Doc isn't anti it but just waiting to do another blood test next week to see if my bloods and all that T cell stuff is behaving itself.
