I went to the clinic today to get my thyroid checked out. While I was waiting in the very full, very small lab lobby for them to take some blood, this nurse holding a plastic cup walks up to a guy sitting in one of the chairs. She loudly explained to him about how to give a urine sample into this cup, right in front of everybody. I thought it was pretty funny. He kept acknowledging her in short, bass-filled words – trying to show he wasn't going to be emasculated by her. I thought it was pretty funny, even if the nurse needed a lesson in tact.
Is your thyroid broken?
I won't know til they send me the results. I'm leaning toward "probably."
Hyper or Hypo? Thyroid seems like a bitch of an organ.
1) open cup
2) place penis in cup
4) close cup
5) wash hands
or am i missing a step?
The best part is you can be both hypo and hyper. Your thyroid gets into this push-pull scenario where it is dying so it trys to compensate by making too much hormore, but then it is dying, so everytually it is dead and can't make any.
Sweet. I've got some dog thyroid medication I can give you. Apparently dogs have like 10x the thyroid hormone levels that humans do, so I guess one of these pills would make you explode..
