I went to the endocrinologist well prepared showing my family history, my clear signs and symptoms, and knew my blood was "normal."
Endo was pretty sure I had hashimotos and he said I have a goiter. I knew from an ultrasound previously that I have nodules on both sides.
He ran blood again and included thyroid antibodies. Once again it was all normal except for Vit D. He's not willing to try thyroid meds without bloodwork supporting it.
THYROID PEROXIDASE- <10
Vit D- 11
I started exercising and eating better the day the results came in. I also took 50,000iu Vit D 3x per week for 4 weeks. The Vit D has made no difference.
I just gained another 4 lbs! I didn't eat horribly to begin with, but made an effort to eat even better, and always staying within 1200-1300 calories. I exercise with a bowflex treadclimber, and hula hoop (burns a TON of calories) daily. I also use varying workout DVDs because I have back problems and can't do much without pain (I'm in physical therapy).
What do I do now?
