      Not sure personally, I don't have the knowledge, but being mindful of what's happening at least gives you the informed choice.

      I know others have come off Mirt & then discovered they have hyper or hypo thyroidism.  They have said that they thought that Mirt' was masking this illness.  Then there are others who have said its not a thyroid issue at all but another WD/discontinuation symptom that rights itself eventually.  But I just don't know which it could be.

    Personaly I went Hypo / Hashimoto.... But Hyper is sometimes kind of a prelude before going hypo... Most difficult thing is to find the connection.
