I Hashimoto and kept on increasing my NDT from time to time (on it for about 2 years), but had to go down to 1/4 grain again. Now my body does not even tolerate that dosage anymore, even though I need it. When I am taking NDT then I am very tired and exhausted. I guess it has to do with my cortisol levels, they are too low for years already (Vitamin B12 is fine again after having taken Methylcobalamin for a while, still have to take Vit. D3 though).
My edema are still getting worse all over the body incl. puffy face, in the last years until now I went from clothes size "XS-S" up to size XL and it does not stop! I am so desperate! I read in Janie's book "Stop the Thyroid Madness" that taking NDT does not work when you have weak Adrenals. I can't find no doctor to prescribe me s.th. for my cortisol deficiency. I found out that there are supplements like "Adrenal Cortex" and also similar products by other companies.
Which one works best for you guys out there? Please give me advice, I don't know what and from which company to order.
