Just wondering how you are doing. Did you have your endocrinologist appointment yet? Worried about your hair and your health and your peace of mind. Pls update when you have a moment.

I am ok. Thank you for asking. I did see a second endocrinologist on Wednesday. He seemed to feel it was the hormonal manipulation,Levothyroxine and Armour. He asked me to come back in three weeks. He did not want to take b/w. He will when I see him next. The dermatologist felt it was both all of the hormone drugs and going on thyroid med and going off after 5 weeks. Maybe, the tsh going from 3.5 to 1.86 and then back to 4.5. I think he said, something about hair cycles and that maybe this was a reaction from the drugs in August/September. I did just go off Armour so I am frightened about that. I was worried to get the results of Hashimioto's. The endocrinologist that took that test was not who I wanted to hear the results from. I will get the results sent to either my primary care or new endocrinologist. Dr. Check suggested taking Spirolactone to stop the hair loss. The dermatologist felt like I should not add another hormone drug. It seemed most of the doctors felt I should not be on any drugs right now. I am frightened about my hair but, what can I do? I see my primary care on Thursday to go over b/w I did last week. I want to see how my body is in 3 months. I need to detox. I have been on some kind of hormone for almost two years. I want to see how my tsh is off estinyl. It is hard to take care of myself and let go of cycling. I must. Thank you for caring.

You've been on my mind too. I hope that you do not let this bump in the road discourage you. I'm happy to see that you are being treated and taken care of. I can totally understand how hard it is to let go of cycling when it seems that this is all we do around here...but take care of yourself FIRST you must. A detox sounds like a fantastic idea!! Just wanted to say hi and to let you know that you are in my thoughts.

Thank you for thinking of me. I am glad that you are doing okay. I have to stop ttc at the moment. I have lost so much hair and am so worried. I am trying to let go. I don't know what to do. I have some more appointments with dermatologists but, they can't see me until late January and early Feb. One doesn't take any insurance but, I feel like I should see him. He was recommended by Dr. Griffo. I emailed with Dr. Griffo to see if he could give any thoughts to my hair loss. He said, he had no experience with this. I need to take care of myself. A woman who works in my industry died today in a terrible accident. She was 41, it is so sad. I need to try and get perspective.

Thank you for writing. I haven't been very active on the board. I am just in such a crazy place.
