1 Thyroiditis: Hashimoto's Thyroiditis 36 of 197 18%
1137  Lived with undiagnosed hyperthyroid for 10 years before diagnosed. Refused radiation to kill thyroid and take Synthroid the rest of life. Changed diet some and saw relief (eliminating coffee, cigarettes, and any alcohol helped to reduce goiter pressure). But diet was not good enough. Thyroid was diagnosed as hypo- years later and eu- even later. Since 1980 when the thyroid started bothering me (just so happens I had my first root canal and other dental work done that year) till now, I have not taken any medication. My symptoms seem to be mostly hyper but a few are hypo symptoms. I heard that can happen after going many years without treatment or a cure.    16 year ago  
1201  I am a 42 year old woman from Australia.

I had a partial thyroidectomy in 1999 and have half a thyroid left. I am on oroxine 150 mcg's as part of suppressive therapy. I had a "large multinodular goitre" measuring 36 cc's in the left hemisphere which was removed with similar changes in the right hemisphere. Lab results also showed chronic thyroiditis.    16 year ago
2437  I was diagnosed with Hurthle Cell Carcinoma in December of 2006.    15 year ago  
2535  Became hypo after treatment for being hyper    15 year ago  
3189  I was "stricken" with Hashimoto's 10 years ago. My levels have never balanced out on the scripts I have tried and or taken over the years. More research needs to be done, it is not being properly treated and the disease is sadly trivialized. I am now looking for natural ways to improve my health, loose weight, and feel better. I have finally learned that the Doctors' office is not going to be the way out of this.    14 year ago  
3319  Diagnosed in 1987 initially with Graves level 7x normal. Later diagnosed with H. Thyroiditis. Treated with synthroid 100mcg/day.    14 year ago  
3611  September 2008: Hypothyroidism runs in my family. My father's mother had it and was not treated. She had a goiter. She was put into an assisted living facility because she developed dementia. She died within one year of being placed in the facility due to being overmedicated to control her inability to sleep.

My mother's mother and one of her daughters (my aunt) both died of heart disease. They were over weight and had many symptoms of hypothyroidism. Both my mother and my sister as well as myself were first diagnosed with Fibromyalgia, then diagnosed with Wilson's, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis in 2004 following blood work. Since I have no contact with them, I do not know what treatment options they are using.

Both my mother and my sister suffer from a borderline personality disorder, e.g. hypersensitive to criticism and inability to understand social queues, mania.

I have always had very high cholesterol (hovering between 265 - 320) and C-reactive Protein Values. All of my doctors wanted to give me something to lower my cholesterol rather than attack the source of the problem, e.g., my underactive thyroid.

I was UNDER treated for four years (25 mcg. generic T4 - Thyroxine, 50 mgs. Iodoral and 27.5 mg of LA T3 - Levothyroxine) and developed a goiter and a cyst as a result of this under treatment. Numbers were in the "normal" range, but, my body was unable to use T3 (and I felt like crap most of the time).

In March 2008 I began self treating with Lugol's Iodine (I am taking up to one half a dropperful 2X daily) rather than use the Iodoral. I have begun supplementing with selenium (per curezone) to ensure that I am flushing out any toxins that might have accumulated in my thyroid that may be preventing my thyroid from uptaking the T3 and actually using it. Given the fact that my cholesterol was 326, I began supplementing with 1200 mgs of Red Yeast Rice 2X a day and brought my numbers down to 246 when it was checked agin in July. Increased my Red Yeast Rice to 1800 mgs 2X a day to see if I can bring the numbers down further. It also seems to act as an anti-inflammatory. Muscle pain is much less. Haven't had C-reactive Protein values checked to see if that number has been reduced as well.

In April following an untrasound of my thyriod and discovering the size and condition of my thyriod, I fired my doctor, (who is mentioned on the Wilson's website as an expert), made an appointment with a Endocrynologist, (first OV was in July) who immediately took me off of the T3 and bumped up my brand name T4(Synthroid) to 50 mcgs.

Currently awaiting results of bloodwork to see if my numbers have changed.    14 year ago
3908  they keep trying to poison me with thyroxine and synthroid!    13 year ago  
4060  I have been diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis. I have been led to believe this has an affect on the appendix and I have just suffered a ruptured appendix requiring surgery. Is there a connection?    13 year ago  
6077  Diagnosed 2006    8 year ago
