Hi, This is my first tie posting, I read many posts and find them both informative and educational regarding the minefield thyroid related issues.
I was diagnosed hypothyroid earlier this year and was prescribed Levothyroxine, I felt rapidly worse and started to supplement with Iodine, then I started to feel better, then worse again. I don't like medication and will always look for alternative forms which led me to Dr P. who was a breath of fresh air, he was able to establish that a partial nephrectomy ( Kidney removal due to tumour) was probably to route cause as this operation was either responsible for damaging my Adrenal gland or the complete removal of it.. this in turn slowly had the detrimental and irreversible damage to my thyroid gland. I now take natural Adrenal and thyroid supplements and fortunately I seem fine. However, I wanted to ask the group advice on breathlessness, I love walking this would be my preferred choice of exercise but sometimes I just can't get my breath especially if I'm a slight incline I have to slow down so much its hardly worth the walk. My GP has sent me for heart related tests and everything seems fine, I just wonder if its thyroid related and if anyone else has the same problem?
Thank you in advance.
