I'm 29yrs old & have been taking Levoxyl .15mlg for the past 9 years. I was diagnosticated with thyroid cancer when I was 20... now my teeths started to fall off and doctor's doesn't know why, I need to find an answer..please, help me!!
Don't know if you are still checking for answers, but I had the same problem. I have graves disease (hyPERthyroidism). It has really taken a toll on me, and as of right now most of my teeth have crumbled, and I am in the process of getting the last few removed and getting dentures. I never took levoxyl, but took propanalol and proplthyauracil for several years and I still have the hyperthyroid, just not as bad. Graves disease lasts forever, so if I get my thyroid removed, I will then have hyPOthyroidism... so you just can't win. I know that your thyroid being messed up (or even taken out) causes bone and teeth loss. I now have osteoarthritis in my knees, spine, and God knows where else. I KNOW that my thyroid disease caused this with my teeth. Before I had Graves, my teeth were perfect, just a couple root canals and cavities. It is VERY HARD to go through losing your teeth one by one, and the dentists think you are kind of crazy, or a meth user or something. I had to SHOW them proof before they believed me. You need to cut out sugars for sure, and eat as healthy as possible... lots of cale, broccoli, brussel sprouts, etc. There is a site called "Dear Thyroid" that WILL help you. God Bless You and I will keep you in my thoughts... I know how you feel. Best of luck to you!!
