Hi I have thyroid inflamination and don't know anything about it. The doctor didn't tell me what it meant- just that I needed bloodwork. Can somebody who has/had it tell me about it and if you feel pain? Also where is your thyroid? any info would help also my AC1 (or is it) A1C is 9.4 %. Any ideas of how to get it down? Do you just eat right and not have highs too often? My orignal A1C/AC1 in the hosptial when I got it was 11%!! then I had a 7.2 % and now 9.4%.
