She was 4 days old. We gave her her meds all of her grown up years. Now she’s on her own and for whatever reason she just ignores her illness and only takes her meds Now and Then. What negative health issues can come up for her if she doesn’t take her meds . It’s been at least 3 months and she has 8 pills left still. I’m trying to get through to her the possible outcome of ignoring this. Please help
Confusion, cognitive impairment, extreme fatigue, cold intolerance, altered mental status, and even death is possible if thyroid hormone is not supplemented properlyfor an inactive/underactive thyroid. Thyroid hormone is required to regulate all metabolic functions of every single cell in your body, without thyroid medication to supplement and hypothyroidism it will be a matter of time before she begins experiencing these symptoms. However in the end you must realize that a patient can only help themselves if they want to otherwise it doesn't matter if the entire world tells them to do it they won't do it if they don't want to.
