husband saw the doctor last week and got all the blood draws, UAs, etc. The results came in the mail today and he glibbed over them with me and said "I need more Vitamin D, he says I need 5,000 mg a day." No biggie, I'll just add another to the pill sorter each day. As he's walking out the door he says, "He says my thyroid is low, too." So, eventually I get the paperwork and look at it and it says that the doctor needs a pharmacy for us so he can call in an RX. husband's TSH level is 4.763. No wonder he's a slug! I called the Dr. and gave them a pharmacy to call, and we'll pick it up and get it going ASAP. Dr. will recheck in 6 - 8 weeks. husband was just going to blow it off. Now, I know that his maternal grandparents lived well into their 90's, but his father died in his early 60's. Of course, dad blew out of town when he was 4, so I'm sure it means nothing to him. He's nearly 53 and he thinks he's still a kid. Is anyone being treated for this, and what can we expect? I know that he is to watch out for chills and for changes in BM and hair loss - he's already near bald - and moodiness. I want to know the good stuff from you guys. He's going to be a PITA about taking this medication. Give me some good news so I can play it up?
