This is for all those people that are living without a thyroid. I remember being so frustrated that most of the content about getting well never featured information for someone like, someone who was trying to heal post thyroidectomy. I decided to do a special Q&A from people that have experienced a thyroidectomy. I hope this helps you in your healing journey!
Question in today's episode:
After 25 years on levothyroxine and remaining mostly stable after RAI, why would my numbers just tank? I had to increase my dose by a huge amount. My endocrinologist tested me for everything under the sun. Nothing came up.
Should doctors test your adrenal/cortisol? I've never had this done but wonder if I should.
How, if at all, does pregnancy and childbearing differ when you don’t have a thyroid? Just hoping to have a better understanding of what to expect when the time comes.
Are there any differences between treatments in USA vs. other countries?
What is this talk about the hormone T2 ? Supposedly it can help with weight loss and have no negative affect on T4 or T3.
