Thyroid issues jack up your entire system royally. She should talk to her doctor about this; her medication may not be strong enough, or there may be something going on as well as hypothyroid. Some doctors don't take women's thyroid issues seriously enough, so if the one she has doesn't help her, I'd advise looking for another.

Thank you. I think perhaps she needs to take action then.

My wife has had thyroid issues for a long time -thankfully they are now under control. Classical endocrinologist (Docs) prefer to prescribe Synthroid or it's generic equivalent. My wife used this for many years with little obvious benefit. The Docs will test for T3 when what you really need to know about is T4 (or vise-versa). One is easier to test for - and they assume one is an analog for the other which is not always the case. The Docs also are reluctant to increase dosage if you happen to be at the low end of what is described as 'normal'.

My wife fired her Doc and is now going to a new one that uses Armour Thyroid link or an equivalent. It's derived from pigs and is better at increasing T4. This worked much better for my wife.

Then the swine-flue thing came along and Armour Thyroid was hard to get because the pigs thyroids were being used to produce the swine-flue vaccine. So what my wife has now is a custom compounded thyroid medication made at a local pharmacy.

Summary is - the porcine-based (pig) thyroid medications work best for my wife.

I am not a doctor nor am I offering medical advice. Do the research and follow the recommendations you get from professionals - but beware - not all professionals agree on the best course of treatment and you may need a second opinion - it worked for us.

I have. I'm 20 and have a very small sex drive. I haven't began meds yet but I'm hoping I'll go back to normal.

Thyroid issues are complicated largely because there is such disagreement in the medical community as to what constitutes as high or low. The range is about .04-4. This is quite a large range and depending on your body you could very well fall within "normal" limits and still not be where YOU need to be. If you are having the symptoms for low/high and all your other tests look normal then you might want to give meds a shot. Talk to your doc, don't let them brush you off. And know what your labs say, don't take their word for it. That being said, thyroid meds can take several weeks to really kick in and get your body back to normal, so you'll be playing the waiting game.
