1. S/N & Real Name: Bearbait - Rachel

2. Location: MAryland

3. Thyroid Disorder: Hashi's

4. Current meds/homeopathy taking: None

5. Year diagnosed: Dec 2006

6. Something about yourself that you want other to know: I have the antibodies for Hashi's, and my endo did a scan and says she can tell from the scan that I have Hashi's, but I've been measuring as hyper so basically we are just waiting until the Hashi's kicks in or whatever to do any kind of treatment. I was first diagnosed when a routine exam during my second pregnancy showed a TSH of 0.01, so my OB sent me to an endo and she re-checked me every 6 weeks but I was always hyper, just inching my way towards normal but never reaching it. I didn't get myself re-checked during the post-partum time b/c what would be the point if the thyroid usually fluctuates anyway, since they can't treat the hyper? Plus we were moving and I had to get a new endo. My baby is now 18 months old, I found a new endo, and I am still measuring hyper. Endo isn't sure if I am just normally hyper (I've had some of the hyper symptoms all my life) and that is why I am still measuring hyper even though my thyroid is showing signs of inflammation, or if my thryoid is just trying to overcompensate and I will soon be hypo. I am hoping to become pregnant again sometime during the next year, so I am hoping that I can get through the pregnancy before the real hypo stuff kicks in.

3. Thyroid Disorder: Hashimoto’s

4. Current meds/homeopathy taking: synthroid- still inductory phase

5. Year diagnosed: 2008-two weeks ago!

6. Something about yourself that you want other to know: DH and I are ttc our first- have had three loses in the past 6 months-not sure if thyroid related or not. RE just diagnosed me, never thought about thyroid before. I had figured the abnormal weight gain in the past year was due to all the pre-natal stuff while ttc. Originally the RE found a uterine cyst that we thought was causing the problems, but then hit me with Hashimoto’s. Having the cysyt removed in a couple of weeks and trying synthroid.
