    Default thyroid cancer... stix haven't turned..

    had follicular.. total thyroidectomy... on synthroid since feb. 8.. ketostix haven't turned yet..(usually it happens in 2 days or less.. but not this time..)

    anybody on synthroid that still has purple/pink ketostix?

    can synthroid interfere with the stix turning pink or purple?

    I wouldn't worry about the sticks at all.

    They never turn for some people.

    Even if they never turn, it doesn't mean you're not in ketosis or that you won't be successful.

    Yes, you are different this time.

    That's why looking to the past isn't helpful!

    Focus on the food and water ... let your pee take care of itself!

    Any update, Peytonn? It looks from your stats like you are doing great. Is that loss pre-thyroidectomy, post-thyroidectomy, or a little bit of both?

    Hiya

    Years ago my stix turned dark purple easily. This time around I am on levothyroxine and I struggle to get them past 'mild ketosis' despite sticking to <20g carbs. Still losing weight though :0)
