Only recently diagnosed as hypo 11 days ago and on 25mg of levo a day (TSH 9.8 and T4free 0.93 (0.70 - 2.0 ng/dl)).
Dr also said to take vit B12 as blood test was 345 (180 - 850 range per lab, but Dr said should be minimum of 400) and magnesium as I am deficient, result 1.74 (1.9 - 2.8), but also suggested selenium.
I tried 1000mg of Vit B12 (Solgar sublingual) but I seem to be spending an awful lot of time on the toilet since I started taking them, so now cut them in half and take 500mg which is slightly better. Magnesium I am having even worse trouble with and for the moment have given up those whilst I try to cope with these other tablets. I also take Vit D3 , which I have been taking for a few years now but have upped my dosage as the results were in the low end of the normal range, and omega 3 fish oils for high cholesterol.
I happen to have a packet of 200mcg selenium tablets and not sure if I should be taking these as they are 346% of RDA and not having been tested for this, I'm not sure if I need that much or can overdose on it. I usually always get side-effects with tablets and I am not liking having to take all these. Can't say that the levo has helped although I realise it is very early days yet, but I am sleeping even more than I was before and not feeling that great.
Any thoughts on taking selenium as well as everything else?
