I was just wondering, we all know that peope with hypothyroid got low stomach acid and this is of course a problem. I've got severe stomach problems and meds don't work, tried Omeprazole again for 3 weeks but no effect. I had to try. Tried Betaine HCL last year and after a few days had to go to the emergency room because the pain was unbearable. Was it the Beatine HCL? I don't know.
Anyhow, I'm of course still searching and trying different things, also am still in the process of finding the right dose of levo, maybe it will all correct itself like magic when I'm on the right dose.
So now my question, I've read that people who've got low stomach acid will have high levels of gastrin, it can be measured in blood so it's just a blood test. I'm now asking myself if I should ask my GP to get it tested (as I will have a blood test already in 4 weeks for the thyroid check to see what this dose does)? It's a cheap and simple test and if gastrine is high I could try Betaine HCL again, that's my thought right now.
I would love to hear your opinion and/or experience.
