I have lived with Thyroid issues all my life. I was diagnosed with Hyperthroidism as a youth. I took meds until I was 18 to keep things under control. Did not start dealing with my Thyroid again until 9 years ago. This time I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism. I have been on Synthroid/ Levothyroxine for the past 9 years. I finally feel like I am starting to get things under control. I am finally being consistent @ taking my meds as suggested. On an empty stomach 1 hour before I eat. I truley believe it is making a difference. Some of my battles have been poor sleep habits (I work @ 1:30 in the morning).As well as poor eating habits. I finally feel like I have more energy and stamina. I have recently started being consistent @ working out. Is it advisable to get my blood work done more often than once a year? My last blood work was done in December.
