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?"
