I've been taking sythroid, thyroid medicine for 7 months and I'm not very tired
anymore. The pill is so small and it will make you feel much better if you need
it. I have hashimoto disease which my doctor told me has nothing to do with my
diabetes. However, I have heard on this computer that my doctor was wrong. I'm
sure I couldn't have done anything to prevent it. I just hope that is the
worst of my health worries- siris- a little yidish.
