I am in USA. I am not sure how I landed here , but here's my story. I was diagnosed hypothyroid 12 years ago. I have Hashimotos also. The struggle to lose weight has been very depressing! I have been on NDT. My Dr told me of a reverse t3 test where if it is high it can Inhibit t3 from activity in the cells. So my Dr reduced the t4 combo med armour and added cytomel. I feel better but have a bad left knee and can't exercise now. I also discovered there was an NIH study that certain nsaids interfere with t3 transport and I had been on diclofenec for a long time for my knee.. Of the nsaids tested ibuprofen was the only one that didn't interfere with thyroid hormone transport. It has felt like I have had one thing after another sabotage my efforts. Plus the fact that Hashimotos Hypothyroid patients should not eat goitrogens which I had done that often not realizing that the list goes way beyond cabbage and broccoli to many of the herbs, spices I love. Along with the reccomendation of no gluten, no dairy, no night shade vegetables, no grains, no legumes ...What else is left?
I had been high protein low carb eating lots of goitrogens that inhibit our own thyroid from uptake of iodine. I have tried KETOGENIC diet as well.
Now I am shifting to mostly fruit diet except for peaches,pears and strawberries because they are on the low end of goitrogen list.
Has anyone else had similar struggles ?
