When first diagnosed around 25 years ago I was taught to vary my dose (Initially extract, then went over to Levothyroxine following a strike) by taking my basal temperature and heart rate. It was so static that I eventually stopped doing it. Recently I felt my thyroxine was not making a great deal of difference. Dr Skinner tried me on various doses but it wasn't really helping. I went back to first principles and found my temperature all over the place so threw away my supermarket thermometer and bought one from boots where my original came from. There was no difference! I had to so something to get me on my holiday so supplemented with increasing amounts of Nutri Thyroid and tabulated my temperatures alongside, am and last thing at night. My morning temperatures were gradually improving from around 34/35 C but my night time ones were usually a little higher. I was improving as well but on my return I went back to my original medication but decided to start re-taking supplements as well. (I'd stopped to get a baseline). That had also been part of my initial treatment plan. I was put on Vitamin D as very low, 3 months Folic Acid, and then re-introduced Zinc, Selenium, B12 and then added Magnesium. My temperatures gradually increased though still a little low and my overall wellbeing much improved but now my temperatures were lower in the evening than in the morning, sometimes as low as 34/35 and a little steadier than when I first started but still varied!
Has anyone any ideas what is going on and what should I do about it?
