Many of us deal with thyroid issues that seem to go hand in hand with diabetes. I've been taking thyroid meds (synthroid) since the mid-1980's. The last time I saw my endo, he prescribed a lower dose of it (from 137mcg to 125 mcg) because my lab tests showed a low TSH at .21. I've been taking the new dose for about 2 weeks and have noticed that my BG readings have been lower. I'm assuming it is because my metabolism has increased since I've made no changes in diet nor in exercise. I've tweaked the settings in my pump little by little to avoid going too low (a couple fastings were in the 50's and 60's.) and am happy that the pump gives me fine-tuning options. I'm still trying to get back into balance so that I can start working out at a health club I just joined. Just thought I'd mention it. Has anyone else had similar experiences?
