The synthroid (different name for the medication you mentioned) won't treat the underlying auto-immune issue, but it will provide support for your thyroid gland, which is a good thing, since it's under attack.
Do you by any chance have any gluten intolerance issues? Do you have any skin issues like psoriasis/eczema? Just asking because I've been doing a lot of research and there is some connection between all of these.
Thank you very much for your response....
I do not have any issues - no skin issues - in fact no issues at all. At this time I am more than 100% healthy. I don't even ever get sick (my friends can not believe this!).
Okay, I hear what you are saying about my thyroid.....
I will go in and see an infertility specialist with all my results and see what they say regarding taking the medications....
Thank you Kiliki... for my amazing siggie!
