The eye sounds totally unrelated to the thyroid issue. I am taking 5mg tabs. At 2.5mg, I still couldn't gain weight and was ravenous. 1.25mg sounds like a low dose to make anyone sluggish. Hyperthyroidism makes you hypertensive. Maybe the infection in your eye is making you feel sluggish? Try neosporin in the eye. smile

Hi Goose. I just wrote in my diary about these very problems. I'm also hyperthyroid and early kidney. Kidney diets are great because low protein, phospherous, and sodium, but higher in fat to try and keep weight on us. Royal Canin Renal and SD K/D have been good, haven't tried NF. I hear the Iams kidney diet is also real good.

Sorry to hear that you are frustrated and having so many difficulties with bladder infections. I get bladder infections all the time ans mom has learned to control them. Canned food is very good for preventing urinary crystals and infections, as stated earlier. Also, make sure your food is low in magnesium to prevent struvite crystals, which cats mostly get. If you get oxalate crystals, which is rare in cats, make sure the food is low in calcium. This is where the prescription diets come in if you can't manage them. Another good thing to try for cystitis (which is chronic inflammation of the bladder without crystals) is Cosequin. This helps relieve inflammation. Good luck.
