Comment:
I was 27 when diagnosed with hypothyroidism.... way too young for the POOR quality of life I was experiencing. I had 2 young children, one still an infant, yet had NO energy to care for them. My doctor put me on Synthroid, which helped me for a grand total of 1 month. When ALL of my "hypo" symptoms returned, plus some new ones, and a higher dose of Synthroid didn't touch them, I knew ...
