Hey Tep! Oooh, everyone would be jealous that you wrote to me. You are loved by many here at psycho-babble and I know everyone is always concerned about you. Are you better? I hope so. Thank you for your responce. About three years ago I went to an endocronologist(however you spell it) after I had been dieting for a year and lost all of the weight I had gained over the years after having three children. The weight loss had stopped for over eight months and I had all the symptoms of low thyroid. ( I had heard this could happen after extreme dieting for so long.) The depression was bad, my hair was falling out, I had dry skin, no energy,was cold all the time and anthing I ate would make me gain weight. When the doctor checked my thyroid levels he said they were fine and dismissed me. The symptoms have persisted ever since then. I've read that many people that suffer from these symptoms have low thyroid that is not detected by blood tests. It has a name but I can't remember it. It has something to do with the body converting T4 into T3. Some people have trouble doing this and the T4 levels in the blood show up normal even though there are still problems with the T3. I've never found a doctor that will try anything if the blood tests show everything is within range. Thank you for responding! You know we all love you! Hope all is well. Still praying for you, CEK
