      I hope your news for your daughter is good…I’m glad you got your daughter to go for tests. My daughter, pregnant with her 2nd child won’t even ask for a thyroid panel :( This is her 3rd pregnancy and she has had some problems with it also, her 2nd pregnancy ended at 9 weeks with no explanation. I don’t think she has GD but I do think she has/is very hypO, and has been this way most of her life, I never had a thryoid test done on her as a child because I didn’t have a clue what a thyroid was (oh to be so blind again) but she has had substantial weight gain and is exhausted all the time. I threatened to go to her obgyn and BEG him to do a panel on her if she didn’t ask him for one. And I will do it if necessary. On thing I pray is that she does not ever have to walk in the shoes of GD.

      Good luck to your daughter and let us know.

        No you are not rambling, I understand exactly how you feel. I had 2 boys post Graves’ and RAI and although I am grateful that I was able to have the honor of having these 2 children, I worry every day that they might get TD. Although TD is not genetic the way some other diseases are, nor is Graves as grave as other diseases like diabetes can be, families have a tendency to have this disease and not everyone gets to return to normal after Graves. I have never felt completetly normal after starting meds and I hate to think that I might have passed this misery on to my wonderful children.

        If it weren’t for modern medicine I would have prob died from graves or if not, then I would not not have been able to concieve more children or died from hypo therefore not passing on this misery to my own children. Had I known how bad this could get, I would have adopted instead of passing on this misery. Of course, my kids may never get this disease or future meds might be able to restore a better quality of life than the current meds do. Still I worry…
