I would really appreciate any advice. I have spent the last 4 months taking Levothyroxine as a result of a basic blood tests by my very kind GP. Luckily, after feeling much worse on 25mcg, I went back to him. He raised my dose to 50mcg and referred me to an Endo specialist. After lots and lots of tests and still feeling ghastly, most of my results are back. As it turns out, I have thyroditis - Hashimoto's, as well as Addison's disease (adrenal auto immune) and some autoimmune connective tissue disease (probably Sjogren's syndrome). He is sending me to someone to deal with the tissue stuff first and then will deal with levels of levothyroxine after that. Apparently my (T4, T3) conversion is fine and I believe that he is taking it seriously.
None of us feel very well with this I know, but I was wondering if there was anything I could do nutritionally to help. I live in Glos, but spend lots of time in London, and whilst I don't want to go down a purely 'natural' route (although fully believe in holistic support), I was wondering if anyone had any advice on who to talk to about nutrition or if anyone could give me any help.
Sorry about the length of this email - it's so boring not to feel great - but my children are at boarding school and home for the summer and I just want to be able to look after them (and have enough energy not to get cross with them) as much as I can and used to be able to. I would really value any advice.
