Along with my Type 1 diabetes, I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease (hypothyroidism) about 24 years ago. While my diabetes is not too bad, lately my hypothyroidism has gone haywire. In an effort to get my thyroid levels up my diabetologist has been increasing my daily dose of thyroid medication (Levathroid) with no success. I can't say that I feel sick, though I do seem to tire easily and definitely have a hard time keeping my body warm (seems like I always need to put on a sweatshirt or wrap in a blanket while reading or watching TV in the evening). Has anyone else experienced this and what was done to correct the seemingly uncorrectable hypothyroidism? Is levathroid a decent hormone replacement medication or is there a better hormone therapy tablet available?
