Hypothyroid levels are worse. Everything else is better.
I went to my doctor yesterday, finally. I have been due back for months but haven’t wanted to go. I have been feeling really bad lately. I think I’m failing half my classes, and I have been eating like crap, gained wight, and I have been so tired and lazy lately. I hurt my back really bad in December. Then I had a flair up of the injury about a month ago, so I haven’t been able to exercise. I’m going on a study abroad trip in less than a month to England, Scotland, France and Spain (I’m super excited about that actually) but I’m terrified that I will have another “flair up” while I’m there and have to be flat on my back for the whole trip.
So anyway. I went to the doctor. I did all kinds of blood test. I had a diabetes check, my lipid panel done and another thyroid check. I have terrific blood sugar levels, my cholesterol levels are all going in the right direction and I have improved a few points in all areas, and my thyroid dosage needs to be increased. I’m going from 100 micrograms of thyroxin to 125.
I am actually really surprised by all the good news. I was sure it was all going to be super terrible news. I think that I’m most excited to hear that the thyroxin needs to be increased though. I have been taking my pill religiously so I thought I was just having issues. Now I know that my sweet tooth, trouble thinking, depression, and tiredness might all be from a low thyroid again. I really hope it is because I have seriously been having a super hard time.
