I've had thyroid issues off and on for years now. When I was first diagnosed with lupus, they said I also had Hashimoto's. The doctor put me on Armour thyroid, which is a more natural thyroid medication. It also doesn't do nearly as much as Synthroid. When my holistic doctor closed his practice, I went to an endo, and he said my levels were absolutely perfect without Armou, that I absolutely do not have Hashimoto's!! I do, however, have a goiter that continues to grow. I go every June for a re-check and it inevitably ends up being an ultrasound, then a biopsy, all in the same appointment. I don't even mind them amymore. Last year he was a bit alarmed because the goiter grew so much in one year. I can just imagine what this June will bring...!!
Lupus, you have no chance!
