I am not sure why meds are being used to treat hashi? I get it if the Thyroid has been damaged beyond repair. Autoimmune disease is the silent intruder here surely? And if that is true we cannot truly rid ourselves of this curse, can we?
We can only improve our inflation via diet, lifestyle and exercise. It comes as no surprise that meds work for a limited period until the thyroid is tipped past the point where the current dose is inadequate and further symptons immerge or previous ones re-appear.
We may kid ourselves that the meds are working, which they may be doing on the thyroid but what is lurking within, what untold damage is reaped by the the auto immune disease itself.
In fact it's quite terrifying if you consider this fact. It is certainly life altering. One question springs to mind here and that's what are the survival rates like for indivuals with an auto immune problem?
Sobering thought isn't it?
