In Response To: Thyroid (Patti)

Patti,

I had 9/10 of my thyroid removed 22 years ago due
to Graves' Disease. As long as your TSH is normal,
you have nothing to be concerned about.

Be sure, however, that your doctor pays attention
to your TSH level versus asking you how you feel in
determining whether your Synthroid dosage is correct.
I ran into problems whereby my doctors asked me
how I was feeling rather than really paying
attention to my TSH levels. I was seen by different
doctors (my husband was in the Navy) and so
consistency of care was not there. I ended up being
mildly hyperthyroid for a number of years because
they didn't pay enough attention to my TSH levels.
I had been hyper for so long that I thought it was
nornal, so when they asked me how I felt, I told
them I felt fine, except that I seemed to be anxious
a lot. They never put 2 and 2 together (this is
common in military medicine). In my case, a civilian
doctor finally caught it. I was amazed at how much
better I felt once my Synthroid dose was lowered.

Become smart about your condition. When your doctor
tells you that your TSH level is normal, ask what
your level is and what the normal range is. And pay
attention to your body; it will tell you if something
is amiss.
