        Thanks for the information, Luci. Are you going to be asking “your friend the doctor” any other questions soon? I’ve got one I haven’t been able to find an answer to, recently. Anybody else with any knowledge of this one can chip in at any time, too.

        I have been started on thyroid replacement, and I keep going more and more hypo anyway. My endo told me that it is because the pituitary hasn’t yet responded to the new levels of thyroid hormone in my system. While in her office, I thought, OK. But then, it hit me that if I don’t HAVE a working thyroid anymore what difference does the pituitary make at this point???? I know that in a normally functioning body, the TSH levels from the pituitary work to stimulate or suppress thyroid hormone production. But if there’s NO thyroid why does it matter now? Why don’t our bodies simply USE the hormone that we’re putting into it via the pill?

        Thanks, in advance.
