Not sure if I should join here or the thyroid disorder one but most of those women seem to have hypo so thought I'd give both a shot.
Hello all
My name is Laurie (25) I was diagnosed in May with Graves disease. I gained 113 lbs with my pregnancy and I'm still 50+ over pre-pregnancy weight. Can definitely say my princess was worth it but we have to wait to ttc until I've lost this weight and I get it under control which I'm having a hard time dealing with. I have a rare Graves disease that doesn't make me skinny.. Yep just my luck I get the skinny disease and gain weight :/ I was originally checked for hypothyroidism and my doctors made me take the blood tests 4 times because they didn't think they were right. Well my TSH is less than .0001 so they were right. I did a rai uptake test and my 4 hr was over 30% and my 24 hr was over 70% Normal is 6 hours: 3 - 16% 24 hours: 8 - 25%... Oy Vey but anyways.. Now with my heat intolerance the Marine Corps has put my family in the middle of the Mojave desert in the middle of summer lol. Well that's my story so far

Hi Laurie!

There are ladies on JM that have Graves, but I'm not sure where they are... there were some on here, but sometimes (allot of times) this board is slow. I'm going to try to get more ladies involved over here

Welcome to A D&D board!

Oh no I'm sorry to hear that, but it's very treatable even tho it's scary as hell to find something out like that. It's good that you've gotten a diagnosis and can move onto the next step in treatment avoiding problems that might arise had you of not found out when you did.
