  • What do you want to know? I have done quite a bit of research.

  • About 8 months ago I was diagnosed with Graves disease, and had radiation therapy done on my thyroid. My doctor chose to let me go this long without having medication to keep my levels regulated. Over the last 2 months I have felt awful, and it is all I can do to get out of bed and take care of my family. I went yesterday to have my levels tested and my TSH was 47.600 and my T4 was 0.586. My doctor called me and was kind of frantic immediately put me on medication but didnt explain anything to me. Im just trying to find out what this means for me how bad those levels are and if I'll ever be able to have any more children! Any info would be great!! Thanks!
