Avatar n tn Based on stored blood samples they were able run tests on 500 service women diagnosed with thyroid disease. They also ran tests on a control group of 2000 women. 60% for the group that was diagnosed with graves or hashimotos, TPO was elevated years before symptoms showed up. But the postive rate ofr the control groups was 5 to 8%. Upshot is a positive TPO isn't diagnostic by itself.

Avatar n tn Have been combing the sites to find where I fit in. Have Graves Disease. Had RAI nearly 6 wks. ago. It has been complicated by several gallbladder attacks. Can't get gallbladder removed until thyriod levels come down. Endo put me on PTU. He doubles my dose from 300mg to 600mg after two weeks. With each blood test my levels kept rising. One test showed my WBC to be very low. So Edno takes me off PTU completely.

I am currently on 137 mcg of Levothyroxine.
Avatar f tn I finally found out that I was pregnant the beginning of last year and made it to 4 months and suffered a miscarriage for no apparent reason.

Avatar n tn Hello. I'm 36 and I am almost 9 weeks pregnant. I have Graves' disease and had radiation treatment back in 2009. I hadn't been taking my thyroxine constantly for a few months as I was super stressed and now that I am pregnant haven't missed a dose. My thyroid levels are still very high and I'm worried that this will affect my baby's brain development/IQ levels. Has anyone else had similar experiences? I'm scared and worried.

Avatar n tn i know that was long-winded but if you can get thyroid normalised before resorting to thyroidectomy, please do this.
Avatar n tn I was diagnosed with Graves disease 11 years ago. My endo prescribed Methimazole, which I was allergic to, so he told me he didn't want to prescribe me anything else because sometimes the allergy kills the thyroid. It apparently did, because all of a sudden I was hypo and I had to go on synthroid. Since then, I lost my health insurance and got handled by my PCP instead of the endo (cheaper).
Avatar n tn Menopause symptom share some of thyroid symptoms, as well as a lot of other health conditions. Women have been know to suffer menopause symptoms way up in their 70's. None of the thyroid hormone medications or drugs are a 100 percent cure-all for symptoms, so you might have to treat each symptom separately from each other. Levels are the prevailing diagnose of Graves'/thyroid.
