Hi

I came across your comment, Yes I was born without a thyroid gland, born 1978 was caught at 28 days old. they first gave me synthroid and found out that did NOT work for me, they then put me on Levothroid=levothyroxine.  I now take .175 sometimes a .2
I am now 27 years old and have a 6 year old healthy daughter, something they said would never happen.  I am what you call a medical miracle for this condition, I had very wonderful parents who made sure I didnt have the look of mental retardation and education to make sure I became something better. If you have any questions contact me ***@****. I am curious to know how old you are?
