Can Hypothyroid Turn Into Hyperthyroid?
Hello Everyone, new here, I am 29 year old female, Mother of 2, no complications whatsoever. My question is..I was diagnosed hypothyroid at age 19 (precancerous cells found on gland) I had a partial thyroidectomy and was on 0.05 mg of synthroid on and off after the surgery due to lack of funds, doctors, time and health insurance. When I got pregnant with my first child, I was put on the same dosage and took it throughout, after she was born, I couldn't be on my meds, anymore for the same reasons listed above.

When I got pregnant a 2nd time with my Son, they said I didn't need the meds. I haven't been on my meds for well over 4 years and haven't been to any doctor. What are the symptoms of hyperthyroid and would I have it seeing as how I am losing alot of weight rapidly. I have cut out ALOT of junk food and keep it under about 800 cals a day, I am 5'6 and currently at 155-160 pounds. When I have been eating more regularly, I haven't really gained much. My overall question is if semi-untreated hypothyroid can become hyperthyroid or what? Please don't tell me anything about Doctor's, I'm working on it, but it's hard b/c i'm watching my newly diagnosed Type1 Diabetic (connection between that and my taking of synthroid when I was pregnant with her?) Daughter and finding her a Doctor and all that.  I like, JUST got health insurance (back to 500-800 cals a day wether I like it or not). Any help is greatly appreciated, Thanks and have a great day!!

If I am understanding it you are pregnant now? If so your Thyroid could produce TSH and you could have hyperactivity on just a partial thyroid left. Even after childbirth you could still remain hyper until all the hormones settle back. I do believe after everything returns to normal - you will become hypo again.
