  • Gosh it sounds tricky. Do you feel well enough to do any exercise and follow the same regime every day. I have found that exercise can help me get better ( but I know you have to have enough wellness to feel that you can do it)

  • Thanks ,I will try

  • Have you considered adding some T3?

  • Yes I have wondered about this but I feel I need to get stable first.Thanks for comment.

  • see my post to countrygirl, try paleo diet

  • Thankyou

  • sorry for short reply earlier, but was going out. I am hypo but have antibodies and so have been up and down a lot over last 2 years. I paid for a private ultrasound scan which showed severely atrophied thyroid. I am now reading Robb Wolf "The Paleo Solution" and will be trying the diet. He recommends Gluten free for auto immune issues (antibodies) and his book makes a lot of sense to me. I shall post on here how I get on. Hope you can resolve your issues
