I have been sick on and off since the weather changed in September. I have a two year old who is in daycare and basically has a runny nose all Fall and Winter. I seem to get every single cold she brings home. Sometimes my husband gets them and sometimes he doesn't. Is my thyroid to blame for all this sickness? My understanding is that the Thyroid is a major player in the immune system. Am I just going to be sick all the time? Anyone else found that they were more susceptible to colds immediately following their TT and RAI treatments? My TT was in April and RAI in May.
Well, the strains that are in schools and day cares tend to be super human. My dad often tells me that he was sick until my brothers were in 1st Grade. I was never as sick as I've been since my daughter started daycare, and that was before my TT. I do everything under the sun to boost my immune system- Green Tea, Acai Juice, Emergen-C, Airborne, Multi-Vitamin, practice Yoga, don't drink or smoke. I'm at a loss as to why I can't seem to avoid every cold my daughter gets and blaming my (lack of) Thyroid always seems the first place I go :)
