Hello everybody, I have only been on here for a few months and the one thing I have noticed is there is a lot of people that feel pretty poorly. I won't go into a big long mail as they never get read. I had my thyroid taken out in 1999 and have felt awful ever since, other than over dosing on Thyroxin to function.my big complaint is waking up in the morning with a feeling of a hang over they has not headache and leg cramps and feeling cold. I am currently going through the wilson protocol and feel a lot better although my first cycle has failed.
Now here is the important bit, for a healthy function of the thyroid, DHEA , testosterone in men and oestrogen in women plus the thyroxin. I do not seem to see this mentioned in any of the posts other then over dosing of thyroxin.
I saw a Dr In Joburg and it was all explained to me, these three things are needed to make a person feel well.
If you have a thyroid then I would assume that you only need T4 look at these other things before you start over dosing on thyroxin.I am also a great believer is NDP, NHS thyroxin only has T4 your thyroid makes a lot more than just t4. but this is for people that do not have a thyroid.
Good luck to you all and keep well
