Hi there,

I have Graves Disease/hyperthyroidism which I've been on medication once for. I've been considered in remission for about 2 years now. I just got my blood work done today, and my TSH level is 20.96 uU/mL and the standard range is 0.400 - 5.500 uU/mL. Such a level would be related to hypo right? I know little about hypo... is that TSH level very high? Also does anyone have problems with both hypo and hyper thyroid?

With automatic test results sent to my email I know I'm a bit ahead of my doctor...any my other test results (T4, T3). I'm just freaking out a little.

    Hi Jess, thyroid disease can toggle between hypo and hyper as the disease advances and the body struggles to try to keep thyroxin levels stable.

    It does seem that currently you are hypothyroid.

      I tried meds for 5 years. They dont work. 

      I use amino acid thwrapy now. 

      The long lasting side effects of the meds keep coming. Prior to the meds, I'd never had a broken bone. Since the levo, i had a severe foot break and was down for several years. Now i have a broken finger- multiple  fractures. I don't even know how i broke it! I pretty much can’t do anyrhing with my right hand until it heals.

      I’m so frustrated! Every time i hooe things will turn around, I have more setbacks.  

      The aminos and other supplements are helping, but the damage from the meds is worse than the disease!
