I'm suffering from hashi's and taking 50mcg of levothyroxine. I'm gluten free and I'm about to quit dairy too as I think it's also a problem for me! I am almost certain that my adrenals are struggling! I can't sleep before 4am I can't wake in mornings, my moods are all over the place and I'm unable to cope with stress. I stopped taking my medication a few months back due to feeling like this and I felt okay for a while until I gradually felt symptoms of hypo! So I went back to taking the same dose and it's happening again! My gp took a blood test and says my cortisol was fine. But I have been researching and realise the test they took is insufficient. I've lost faith again in GP's I thought I had found one who actually knew what they were talking about but I have been fooled once more! I have bought izabella wentz' book and it has been my saviour! I wish I could afford private healthcare! Can anyone advise me on what to do next with regards to adrenals! I am in process of diet change but wondered if levothyroxine just doesn't work for me! Thanks in advance
