I've been suffering from hypothyrerosis for at least two years. What I mean is that I got the diagnosis two years ago, but I don't know how long I've had the condition itself. I'm currently taking Levaxin (a synthetic thyroid hormone) since my body can't produce the hormones it needs. My parents were suspecting hypothyreosis when I was younger, because I gained much weight in little time even though I was excercising daily and lead an otherwise active life, got tired easily, and had problems with my period. However, no doctor took it seriously and never took any tests. They said that we were just trying to excuse my laziness. I was found to have this condition when I was checking up on my anemia that I had due to long, heavy periods. So it was a bit of a shock, really. For those of you who don't know, hypothyreosis means that the thyroid gland can't produce enough hormones to keep the body in check. The thyroid hormones are needed just about everywhere in the body and are essential for the cells to work correctly. They are also essential for bone growth and metabolism. This is why hypothyreoid people often gain weight without eating too much or excercising too little. Children with hypothyreosis won't grow normally unless they eat synthetic hormones. Going too long without medicine is harmful to the body. Hypothyreosis can misdiagnosed as depression or ADHD. Symtoms can be weight gain, depression, feeling cold, not having energy, edema and dry skin/hair. Does anyone else suffer from this condition? How long have you been on medication? Can you live your life normally? Did you manage to lose weight? I would be very grateful for a response. Thank you!

i have the right cure for your condition, astraea. it is called bio enzyme. this is a fruits and herbs juice drink. a food supplement which supplies our body those most needed enzymes so we can stay healthy. actually, i can tell you about this with total confidence in the product. this is the product which has made my son win his ordeal with leukemia. the doctors had given up on him some 11 years ago. according to them, my son is dying any minute and i had to prepare myself for the eventuality. how lucky we were when a friend introduce the product to me. since i was willing to cling to any offer of hope to extend my son's lease on life, immediately i administered the food supplement to him. he like the taste and was taking the whole bottle full strength. this may be unbelievable but, on the following day, my son was already able to be up on his feet though wobbly at first. now, i am sharing with everyone this product knowledge. i have a daughter who currently resides in soderhamn. if you are interested to take hold of this product and try it for yourself, pm me. i know that the product can be sent to your place via fedex. if you order the product, i will also send you some brochures. then maybe, we can chat via friendster. i rest assure you that this product will ease off your troubles very much. my son lives to this day and he is leading a normal home life. i say home life because, he has been so used to just stay at home and keep on banging at the computer. maybe this attitude was brought about by having been used to leading a life this way for so many years of having been sick. by the way, my son was afflicted with this illness from birth. he was ten years old when the doctors had given up on him. as of this time, he is already 21 years old and is still going strong. of course, he is aware that he has to keep on taking his bio enzyme juice everyday.
