    I envy all of you. I was adopted at birth, so I have no clue about my genetic history. It certainly makes filling out med forms easier (LOL). But it means I get tested for ALOT of things every time I see a new Dr. Unfortunately, thyroid disease was never a concern for any of my doctors until I developed "storm-range" symptoms.
    I am keeping a health journal for my 2 grown sons and future grandchildren. My youngest son is in the Army and I made sure he put down on his initial exam form that I had Graves. The Army Dr checked his thyroid and it was normal (yeah!). My oldest son and his wife are expecting their first child and he insisted the Dr check his wife’s thyroid level at her first prenatal visit (normal – yeah!).
    I really, really wish I had been armed with the info ammo I’ve given my kids.
