Sure, if that condition is HypERthyroidism…they will lose right on until they die.
If you think you may have a thyroid problem, You need testing for thyroid ANTIBODIES as well as TSH. TSH ‘norm’ should be .3 – 3 (w/ most feeling best at < 2) but, for diagnosis, may not mean much if ANTIBODIES are present which is indicative of Hashimoto’s Autoimmune Thyroiditis (cycles between HYPER & HYPO at start)…it is the main cause of eventual HypOthyroidism but worse (…OR Graves Disease – HypERthyroid from beginning).
You will have to INSIST they test for the antibodies. [anti-TPO and TgAb] They can code so that ins will pay.
WARNING: Doctors seem not to want to find/treat thyroid disease. You may have to go to more than one doctor before you get the right tests, interpretation, and treatment. Best wishes.
ALWAYS GET COPIES OF YOUR LABS.
God bless you
