Hi there, I have had an under active thyroid for 8 years and am on a really high dose of thyroxine 175mg. To be honest I have never really done much research about the thyroid and just gone with what my dr prescribed me. Mainly I think I feel ok or maybe have just got used to feeling lousy, but I do still have other symptoms, I am always cold, my skins and hair is dry and brittle, I do really lack in energy sometimes and I am over weight (a lot) but see I never used the thyroid as an excuse and I do eat a bit of junk food. Anyhow my question is, can I just buy some vitamins from Holland and Barrett was thinking b12, d and zinc possibly magnesium or should I go to the drs and ask for a blood test?
