We went to our new endocrinologist yesterday and loved her! She was soooo excited over Andrew's weight loss. As I have posted before, Andrew did not present with the typical type 1 body type. However, he's right where we want him now. I couldn't be more proud of his extremely hard work between the type 1 and celiac diet. Andrew ROCKS his diet!
The best news - His A1C was at........(drum roll please) 5.2! That's lower than mine!
I had Andrew visit an endo. over last summer because I was worried about his weight and possible thyroid disease, especially since I have hashi's myself. They declined to run any blood work at that time.
This endo. confirmed that one side of his thyroid felt spongy which could mean hashi's. I have to wait for the blood work, but it's a possibility.
Boy, you'd think we're trying to win 1st. place for the most autoimmune issues we can take on at one time!
