How do heat/humidity effect thyroid levels?
Every summer, the heat/humidity compromise my already compromised immune system (CFS). This summer, I'm understanding that b/c the heat does this, my TSH level in turn decrease so I need less synthroid. Does anyone have the experience of having their thy. levels change every couple wks.? The more you change syn. dosages, the more you're adding to potential osteoporosis. I already have 7 fractured vertebrae (am only 49) and have had 2 seizures when my levels got so out of control, giving me thyroid "storms." Do any of you have experience w/ "thyroid storms?"

Hii have been taking levothyroxine now for seven years and my dose keeps increasing. Recently (apx nine months ago) despite taking 225mg per day I still do not feel quite right and my weight is increasing despite walking for all 11km per day. Is it safe to take T3? Does it work taking alongside my other medications? How much is recommended and where can I buy it from please?

I had to have a lung biopsy, and I have cancer. A very rare form that doesn't have any standard treatment. There just isn't a lot of case history for this. It is epithelioid hemangio endothelioma. The cancer support group doesn't talk every day. I can understand why. I'm waiting for the oncologist to call back for an appointment, and will hear in the next few days. Who knew. Ha!
It's so hard dealing with pain especially when you don't get any support from the person who your supposed to be closest to. So hard when your trying to deal with pain and that person treats you worse than the pain. Having hard time understanding why. unless you are having a good Day you are treated like crap and they make you feel worthless.
