I was originally found to have Hashimoto's 6 years ago. My TSH has bounced about ever since between 3.65 and 5.2. I have seen 3 GPs over that time at our Practice and under UK guidelines none will prescribe levothyroxine and can offer no advice on how to deal with this apart from one suggesting HRt might help as I am 55 so 'at that age'. I saw the community dietician last week who said my constantly gaining weight was not a dietary issue but an 'under-medication issue' and that I should go back with her letter of support and push to go on levothyroxine or metformin.
I currently take daily supplements of selenium, B complex, vit D, magnesium, zinc and evening primrose oil. I avoid gluten and dairy.I see lots of thyroid support supplements advertised and wondered if any of them are any good .i would love to be able to reverse this naturally if I can and would be very grateful to hear your recommendations on what I should do. Am fed up of struggling, feeling exhausted, fat and generally crappy! and do not know what to try any more. Supplements? NDT? Push to try medications from the GP? I want the old me back! Thank you for listening.
