Who had this in their signature?

Does anyone know offhand who had the "subclinical hypothyroidism dx" in their sig?  I've been on the look out for them because I would like to PM them some questions. :)

  • Lots of girls have this, myself included. What are your questions?
  • It's the subclinical part that I was most curious about - I have a family history of hypothyroidism, and at my physical I got a blood test done for it because my doc could feel my thyroid very easily, as well as because my cycles suddenly have gotten longer (which I know could also be because I'm still adjusting post-BC).  My levels were within normal range, but my Free T4 was on the lower side and my TSH has definitely risen over past results.

    I was just curious at what factors in to a subclinical diagnosis?  What symptoms would I be displaying even if levels are in a normal range?  Due to the family history, I really want to stay on top of this.

  • From my understanding of it,and perhaps I'm wrong, sub clinical means they are treating it due to circumstance not because you are way out of normal range. Most REs/ OBs like to see your range between 1-3. hypothyroidism can affect your ability to get pregnant.
  • Like @BruinsBabe33 said, my levels are slightly elevated (my levels were like 3.14 or something before I started getting treated). My RE likes to see levels at or below 2 for pregnancy, as there is some evidence that shows anything above that can cause miscarriages. Because I had 3 miscarriages, my RE suspects my thyroid may have been the culprit, but obviously we will never know for sure.

    Incidentally, from what I understand, once you are diagnosed with subclinical hypothyroidism, you are almost guaranteed to get full-blown hypothyroidism at some point in your life. I'm at an even more elevated risk for this because my problem probably stems from getting radiation treatments on my neck and sternum when I was 22.

    Hope this helps!

  • Thank you @BruinsBabe33 & @skreedrake!  Those were my basic questions but if I think of any more I hope you don't mind getting a PM or two (same goes for @thecuddleeffect).
