Default Re: Not sure what to do.....

It costed me about 10 grand when jesse got sick . Thats when i decided to manage the disease on my own . Very scary at the beginning as I had no medical background but the forum helped me through . Tested at home and I became an expert of my jesses diabetes . I am no expert on thyroid tests but more specific tests gives a better diagnosis I hear . Here are some physical symptoms you could see with thyroid problems .

Exercise intolerance.
Mental dullness.
Weight gain without a change in appetite.
Cold intolerance.
Changes in coat and skin, like increased shedding, hair thinning, and hair loss.
Thickening of the skin.

Usually treatment is inexpensive .
