Hi, I am diagnosed and being treated by the nhs for sleep apnea and Mitral stenosis. My meds are Nebivolol, adcal d3, simvastatin and apixaban. I am also exhibiting most of the symptoms of hashimotos. My symptoms and metabolism vary from hypo to hyperthyroid and back over a 6 week period.
Although none of my gps would risk it on the grounds that i might either go hypo or go into atrial fibrillation my cardiologist has had no problems with starting me on a low dose of levothyroxine which has somewhat increased the basal temperatures. Of course the myriad blood tests that I have had have always come back as within the goal posts
The TSH level which is all they will test is variable ranging from 0.3 to 3.94 dependent on where i am in my up and down cycle. Is it safe to switch myself to natural thyroid extract instead of the levo and has anyone purchased same from Nutrimeds or Iherb, what adrenal supplements should i take.
