Hello Thyroid Family,
How have we been the last couple of weeks?
October sees Pregnancy and Infant Loss Awareness Month, which is a sad but very much needed awareness event. Those of us with a thyroid condition should especially be aware of our fertility and how it all ties in. You'll find my article on this below.
If you haven't yet, don't forget to have your thyroid panel checked now that the season has changed. My new blog (included below) explains why we may need a change in thyroid medication dosage when external temperatures change.
I have been on Armour Thyroid (NDT) for three whole months now and am doing very well. I haven't noticed a difference between this and when I was previously on Thyroid-S, so I'll be sticking with it as it is definitely giving me more peace of mind and making it easier to navigate the NHS.
If you have been on the TPAUK forum recently, then you may be aware that there's been some worrying news about the availability of Thai NDT medications and the difficulty of getting a prescription for NDT in the UK. There is a thread on the forum where you can contribute by posting about your experiences. Find it here.
Adam and I took a trip away to the countryside last week to celebrate our ten year anniversary but also to unwind after a very hectic few months with the book and course launches. It was lovely, but I have still experienced a flare up in my anxiety disorder this week, which is something I haven't experienced in at least six months. I'm currently learning to drive and getting very frustrated when thyroid brain fog or HSP traits get in the way.
Wishing you all the best,
Thyroid love x
