Hi,

I've recently been diagnosed with Hashimoto's Thyroiditis and I am compeletely petrified! I gave birth to our second child last November, a couple of months later I experienced so much depression and extreme fatigue which I blamed on post-partum weight. After consulting the GP I was misdiagnosed with depression and I took antidepressants which helped with sleeping but I still had everything else. When I went for a bloodtest, I tested positive with extreme levels from 4.04 of 2 years ago to 60! It has been a week since I started taking the pills for hormone replacement but wondering how long it will take for them to take effect and I want to know if there's anybody out there who has had it and recovered? How long does it take to have any improvement and will I be cured completely? If you have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis I'd like to hear from you please. Thank you!

Sincerely,
Margo.
