Has anyone been diagnosed and then no longer had the problem?


I was diagnosed when I was 18 that I had hypothyroidism. When I was 25 I was told that I no longer had TSH levels out of range and they did another test when I was off of my medication. I am curious if this has happened to anyone else? Does anyone know why this happens?

Me! I developed hypothyroidism when I was 8. I am now 21. In December of 2011, a new endocrinologist took me off my Synthroid. I just got my labs done a couple weeks ago (6 months later), and voila, my TSH is perfect! I have no idea why this happens. Perhaps at one point our bodies could not make the hormone on their own and now they can? Interesting, I am relieved to find I am not the only one :)

I have not had this happen, but it gives me a little hope for my husband who was recently diagnosed as hypothyroid. Maybe he won't have to take medicine for the rest of his life for that condition. Maybe his thyroid just need a kick start...lol I guess if a body part works fine and then stops...then maybe it can not work and then start again.

I was diagnosed many years ago with Hashimoto's disease that then progressed to Grave's Disease. It has been a long difficult and confusing haul for me. I am not cured but I did have my thyroid gland destroyed by radiation treatment. There is so much more information now and if I'd known there what I do now I probably wouldn't have had it done. You would think that with the gland removed and regular doses of hormone that things would be back to normal but that's not entirely the case. Although I am much more stable now I still find that some days I'm very speedy and some quite slow. It seems my body still reacts to the hormone at a cellular level so the disease still affects it even though I have no gland. The good news is that the medical community is coming out of the dark ages about this problem and more and more doctors are learning it's not a simple fix. Thank god it's being taken more seriously and there is more research going into treatments. Please note that many people have temporary problems with their thyroids due to stress, illness and other problems and often have a short period of treatment never to be bothered by it again. Thyroid malfunction does not necessarily mean disease. Like any other part of the body it can be affected by other things and once treated it goes back to normal.
