Very nice chap pre occupied with numbers, due to have a full thyroid panel done plus cortisol, vitamins and iron etc as expected....it'll be interesting to see how a different lab performs...
He has suggests that I trial a combination of t3 and t4
Felt a bit numb after that, all I know is that I feel very unwell right now as I'm not on medication. I am doing everything I can to keep ticking over I totally understand that if hypothyroid not being medicate it's less than useless to follow a good diet but I'm doing what I can and using as many supplements as I can
I fear I may have made things worse stopping meds..as many of you stated...but I honestly was and still am in bits about the state of my hair....
I've always been big I have chunky legs totally covered in varicose veins and the only thing I ever loved about me was my hair.
I know vain as it may seem....I'm utterly heartbroken.....it's nearly bald at the temples and the beautiful auburn shines ringlets are reduced to rat tails
My weight is stable ATM, I don't eat much really I've lost my appetite not to mention energy
I guess the sooner I get on some meds I can at least give my body a chance....it may or may not suit me but I'm going to have to try
In other news I'm going to see my nutritionist in a weeks time and have some tests done with her the cortisol saliva test is what I'm plumbing for so that we can work on that and along with the therapy maybe I'll make some headway...
Got myself some prunes today! To get the digestion moving!!! And as a treat this dairy free lass enjoyed some coconut yoghurt and nuts....and as a special treat hubby took me out for a steak this evening ☺️ purely medicinal! All that lovely iron right???
Thanks to everyone who has been here to listen and advise...I feel overwhelmed at the amount of stuff to read and people's experiences at the end of the day nothing is happening quickly and this is a single journey for all of us even if we are in it together???
