I cannot remember if I have a hyper or hypothyroid
Patient :I cannot remember if I have a hyper or hypothyroid condition. I remember taking medication for it maybe 3 years ago but I wasn't prescribed any refills or anything. I am trying to lose weight and have decided to incorporate juicing into my daily diet. I am 5'3, 260 and in need of serious help to lose weight before I contract serious health issues. I have not gone to a doctor since due to finances. I called the hospital I went to when I was diagnosed but they aren't helping. Can I lose weight with either of those conditions seeing as I can't remember which one I had or if I still even have the condition? I don't know what to do.
