Hi all, I posted a few weeks ago having just been diagnosed with hypo .my doc put me straight onto 100 mcg levo thyroxine as my tsh was 11 (I think)
I felt no difference in the first week ,slightly better in the second ,and bloody marvellous in the third!(compared to pre diagnosis) I was like tigger ! Then on the Sunday ,whilst at a BBQ I put the gluten free trial aside and stuffed my face with quiche sausage rolls and god knows what .the next day I literally could not get out of bed and was late for work .why is that ,that gluten should have such a bad effect on me (I never felt this bad whilst on a gluten full diet ) does it react with the levo thyroxine ?
I have read all the gumph on gluten being similar in makeup to thyroxine but I just don't get it! I am intelligent (apart from the fogs!) but I just don't understand !
Needless to say I have resumed the gluten free diet !
I would also like advise on when to take the thyroxine .i take it usually in the morning but am having to wake up mega early to take it so that I can have breakfast before work at 8 (I leave an hour before caffeine and food) .some people take theirs at night ?
