Anyone with a Hyperactive Thyroid

Moms View Message Board: General Discussion: Anyone with a Hyperactive Thyroid
By Jjandmom on Wednesday, March 25, 2009 - 10:47 pm:

I just found out I have a hyperactive Thyroid and now put on meds. 3 times a day then doctor wants to retest in 2 months. My T3 Free is high and Tsh is low and Another is low now put on meds. Has anyone else have this problem?

Hi Jjandmom,

I have had both hypo and hyper. Yes there are meds but far worse if untreated. There are also dietary modifications that help.

Over 40% of women have some kind of thyroid issue following the birth of one of their children. Far more widespread than people know. Also it can contribute to mood swings and be mistaken for other issues.

I have multi goitors they have been there for years but family doctor sent me to specialist now and now I was put on 300mg meds everyday for now then I get tests done in 2 months to see how it is going then take it from there.

Hi Jjandmom,
How are the thyroid meds working. I've continued on mine for years but they worked. My doctors still test at least quarterly but the first 3 years it was monthly.

Hope you're Ok.

Hi Northcountrymom.
I am still taking the meds so far no side affects i guess that is good they are gonna do blood work in may and the in June 2 I got to doctor and then they will take it from there for more tests . I hope they do not want surgey done not right away I am hoping he is gonna give me more time on the pills but they are trying to get my levels back to normal for the time being.

Hi Jjandmom,

Glad to hear you're alright.

I forgot to mention that my neighbor had her thyroid removed and is just maintained on meds and she is an active mom with 4 kids as well as being a working nurse and a fulltime student.
