Will I End Up With A Thyroid Condition?


 

I am 15 and a girl and I am african american.Thyroid conditions run on my dad’s side of the family and some of them have wound up with goiters and everything.I am super scared.All my life,I have always had a weight problem.I weigh about 170 lbs and am 5″7.However,everyone says I look about 140 lbs.I have lost 10 lbs from not really doing anything,I just suddenly lost it and I haven’t gained it back.(I was 180 lbs and now I am 170 lbs.)I have nice shoulder(okay,it’s past my shoulder) length hair and it is permed and I have not noticed any significant hair loss.But I am scared that I will end up losing all of my hair to a thyroid condition in the future.I show a lot of symptoms of it.I know all of you are going to say,just go get tested for it.Is there anything I can do to prevent this?What can I do?If I discover it early,will I not lose my hair?

I am terrified of losing my hair.It took years for it to reach this length.I already have naturally fine hair and I can’t afford to lose any.I have cried thinking about a possible thyroid condition taking this from me.I am almost to break back down in tears just thinking about it.What should I do?Is there a great chance that I will get it?

  • Thyroid problems are so common I’m not sure why you’re worried so much. A simple blood test can be done to test your thyroid activity and medications are highly effective in treating the condition. Hypothyroidism causes hair loss and hyperthyroidism causes weight loss. You obviously can’t have both.

  • Just have your thyroid levels checked during your annual physicals. It’s a very simple test.

    My grandmother had goiter, now my sister and I both have low thyroid but it was caught in blood tests (we were always tired) and now we’re on meds which fixes it.
