  1. Yes! When starting meds you should follow up every 6 weeks, then every 3 months.

  2. 25 mcg is a tiny dose. Have they not checked her levels since last summer?

  3. No she has had it checked but probably not since December

  4. And just started with endocrinologist in January due to this nodule bc first biopsy came back inconclusive

  5. OK. It's good that she is being monitored.

  6. So does the anxiety depression brain fog fatigue hair loss ever go away? Is it a med dose thing or is it even with the meds she'll still have those symptoms.

  7. I had a huge goiter on my thyriid that I completely shrunk with doing the autoimmune paleo diet. I've also put my Hashimoto's intermission for 3 years.

  8. My doc checks levels every 3 months. They should also check other levels including vit D. Since I've gotten my levels stable and gotten my D up my hair has stopped falling out and I've lost weight without trying. Not allot but couple pounds here and there.
