    My first lab tests after starting the thyroid hormone will be about a month from now. Until then I think I’ll more or less just have to see what happens day to day and make some minor changes here and there, whether to my diet, use of the laxative, etc. I’ve been keeping somewhat of a daily record on a spreadsheet of what I eat, what prescription and OTC medications I take, even if it’s just a pain reliever for a headache, what symptoms or problems I have, and exercise. To be honest, it’s hard to make correlations; I’ve been doing it fairly faithfully for several years due to the IBS and can’t say that I’ve ever pinpointed a cause and effect relationship given how many things might influence your health status, but maybe something will stand out that will help with that or the thyroid problems.
