In Topic: Blood Test -- Dr Didn't Specify The Celiac Panel :(

Wow, this is just mind blowing that they keep the blood.  What awesome information to keep on hand!

I forgot to mention this earlier - does your physician offer a month of free samples?  Maybe you can get some Armour that way and try it out.  My endo won't prescribe it.  He's a big wig with the academy and only does Synthroid and Levoxyl.  Period.  No generics, nothing on the "unusual" end of the line.  Totally old school.

It was so easy to just nuke the thyroid, a day of tests and two drinks and I was done.  Three days of being extra careful not to be around pregnant women and kids ( try telling that to your nine month old ) and flushing the toilet 70 gagillion times after using it so you aren't radiating everyone.

Wow, I wouldn't call the process "easy."  As a new-ish mother with cancer I had to wean my daughter (13 months, at the time), purposefully ingest poison in a room full of radioactive signs, move my family out of my house and be in isolation for ten days.  In those ten days my husband came by toward the end and one friend stopped in with lunch (wasn't allowed even in the front door).  It was a very lonely experience, but the hardest part was weaning and knowing I'd never have the option again with that daughter.  Not to mention the LID (low iodine diet) the full month before - that was an incredibly restrictive diet.

 

Maybe they do it differently for people with Graves, but I'd say it's on the spectrum of being a big deal.

 

OP - I hope you get to the bottom of your prescription needs.  The first time I was RX Synthroid I had diarrhea for a week straight until I stopped taking it and went on Levoxyl.  Then they stopped making Levoxyl a while back and I was back on Synthroid with no problems.  It's funny how the body changes, in that regard.  Hopefully things will sort out for you.


In Topic: A Few Kitchen Questions

24 September 2014 - 01:13 PM

I pretty much donated my entire kitchen to my girl scout troop.  It's all in their big box for camping - still getting love, but from little girls that want to learn to cook using decent products!  Just a thought if you know of a GS troop.

A super cheap option is dum dums.  Gluten and nut free.
