Hello, I'm new to this site. I am also new to trying Natural Desiccated Thyroid. I have been struggling with fatigue, feeling cold, brain fog, weakness and many, many other symptoms of hypothyroidism for a long while. My TSH lab results are always in the normal range and so doctors won't consider that my thyroid is low despite me having so many symptoms. They just offer antidepressants which makes absolutely no sense to me, and in fact I find it offensive. I've shown them my fingernails which have deep ridges and are deformed. (They didn't use to be), told them of my low body temp, which is verified also with them taking my vitals, dry hair, low blood pressure, constipation, low energy...and an antidepressant is suppose to resolve all of those issues?
So, I've basically given up hope from getting help from doctors, and I'm on my own path to help myself get my energy back so that I can function and help my family. I've been educating myself through books and internet searches. What I need is other peoples experiences to help me figure out what works best. I started out trying Nature-Throid on May 1st and got in an order of Thyroid S yesterday, but I am a little worried about the Thyroid S being as good as the Nature-Throid. Over-all I've been feeling much better on the Nature-Throid. I feel a little more energetic and just an over all sense of better well being.
I look forward to meeting some new people here, learning new things and making new friends.
