I have been shocked to have been diagnosed with an underactive thyroid over two months ago (with extremely high TSH 114), since I have never had any symptoms at all!
I've never felt better and healthier in my life, actually.
As I had no symptoms, I refused to take thyroxine (as I was scared it will completely unbalance my hormones) and tried to heal it the natural way. I've cut out gluten and diary completely and was on iodine treatment twice a day since then.
After two months I have repeated the tests and TSH has increased to 144.
Few weeks ago I found out I am pregnant, 7 weeks now, and I am seeing a doctor in 3 weeks! Should I start the thyroxine treatment or is there a natural way to heal it?
I don't like to take drugs but at the same time I don't want to risk my baby's health.
I would appreciate any advice. Thanks
