First you need to know if your levels were high/ low and if you have tested positive for Hashimoto's or graves disease.
The answers to your questions will be different according to what you have been tested for.
I Have found a great support forum where you will be able to get really helpful information. If M I will give the link.
Hi loving6, my thyroid levels are normal but antibody levels are through the roof- OB thinks that I may have Graves' disease as I don't have any physical symptoms as of yet like Hashimoto's disease. Are you able to send me the link to the forum?
