Should I look into getting my thyroid condition fixed?
I have Hoshimoto’s and postpartum thyroiditis. My thyroid has been overactive for 9 months.
When I went to my endocrinologist about it he said that we would just keep checking the levels every few weeks to see if it has gone down. I haven’t had it checked in while because they won’t do anything about even though it is still high.
I know it is still overactive because I am rapidly losing weight, my hair is falling out in clumps, I am tired yet anxious, and my joints ache (it’s an autoimmune disorder so it is attacking my joints).
My question is, should I push getting the condition treated now, let it run its own course, or get it treated after I am done nursing my baby?
