When you’re diagnosed with low thyroid, you’re probably expecting to get the right treatment so you can make a full recovery. Unfortunately treating low thyroid is not as easy as this, and there can be a few complications.
You’ve probably had to wait months for a diagnosis after it was thought you were suffering from influenza or you were generally run-down. Now you have come this far you’re probably feeling a little better about things. I want to be honest with you and tell you there’s still a long way to go, you will get better but you’ll have to keep fighting for your health.
The treatment for low thyroid is perhaps not as good as it should be. Sure there is medication you can take, but it may be a few months before you’re given the right one. I’m not deliberately trying to make things seem bad, I just want you to be aware of how things are.
A Difficult Condition
Low thyroid is a difficult condition that is not as easy to treat as you may think. As I mentioned earlier, you may have a struggle to get the right medication, this is down to the fact that not everyone will benefit from the same tablets as other people.
The best thing you can do is tell your doctor if you’ve noticed an improvement in your symptoms. This way he or she can determine whether or not you’re on the right medication and you’re taking the right dosage.
Medication is the only ‘Treatment’ you’re likely to be offered for your low thyroid, and as you know getting to this stage can prove difficult. The mental health issues that are associated with low thyroid are not always treated as it’s thought that once you’re taking the correct medication you’re going to feel a lot better. While this is the case for some, for others the struggle with day to day life never fully goes away.
It is so important to receive the right treatment for any condition you may have, and you would think more could be done about low thyroid in this day and age.
Unfortunately a lot of us are left to try to make amends ourselves and deal with what life has thrown at us the best way we can.
Take each day as it comes and don’t over-do things, know that once you’re on the right medication things will get better and someday soon you’ll once again be able to do all the things you enjoy.
