  • First, are you on meds? If so has your MD been doing blood work to make sure your meds are adjusting your Thyroid levels? Second, your thyroid can screw up just about every bodily function you have to some degree. My only suggestion is....go see your doctor and let him know what is going on. Your MD is the best person for medical advise, I'm sure he will have some great suggestions for your medical condition. :O) I wish you all the best.

  • Are you taking armour? Also, if you supplement with natural progesterone (doc can prescribe or is OTC) it really helps a lot with the memory loss etc. with those with hyperthyroid. If you have a loss in libido because of it, the progesterone helps with that as well. It can and does impact a lot of people's social lives who have it. A few of my friends were on the brink of divorce and their children were terrified of them before they found the correct medical help. All of them found success with armour and progesterone.
