Thyroid update

Okay so we heard from our family Dr, he had spoken with the specialist and sent my prescription down to the pharmacy.

It will be about 2 weeks before the medication takes a good hold and my blood work will be re-checked in 3 months at which time they will adjust my dosage dependent on the results and my weight at that time.

He hopes to have me sorted good and proper by the end of the year.

Yikes... I think I should have seen a Dr much sooner.... I keep telling you I'm blonde, cute but definitely blonde.

The specialist rang up and I have a virtual appt scheduled for April 28 with her.

I have just taken my 3rd dosage of this pill now and already I'm feeling better, the mind is a powerful thing I suppose...

Anyway, it will be a long road to normal (a 2020 rule apparently) but I am on it at least.

Our family Dr was dumbstruck that this escalated the way it did so rapidly although he said it does happen in rare cases,

So ladies over 50 be mindful and visit your Dr like a normal person - 50 is NOT the new 20 - unfortunate as that is.

Brad had good news though, since he stopped his morning yogurt breakfast he is no longer pre-diabetic and the Dr said his blood work looks 'beautiful' now. Typical man!!!
