I had a blood test last year around this time and my thyroid was fine. Unfortunately this year me and my family have had our fair share of many up's and downs... I lost my job to redundancy, and there have been quite a few family up's and downs and I feel like I have spiraled into a bit of depression.
I was sent for another blood test at the beginning of June 2016 and my blood test showed a slight abnormality with my thyroid and was told to retake the test beginning of September to see if it went back to normal in the hope of family life picking up.
Well, my result came back fine showing a big improvement with my thyroid but still is pretty much the same and my doctor not want's me to go on a low dose thyroxine.
I am so worried to go on thyroxine I have been told it can make you extremely overweight... I am tired all the time, my eye bags are horrendous, I have lost so much of my thick hair, i cant concentrate and feel like I have lost my way.
Would anybody by able to offer any advice into whether I can treat my Thyroid with Vitamin Supplements alone?
I have researched the below vitamins that are meant to help -
The B Vitamins - B1 Thiamine, B2 Riboflavin, B3 Niacin, B6 Pyridoxine, B12
Flaxseed Oil Supplement
I do not like taking medication and I have read so many threads where people have got worse from taking Thyroid medication (Thyroxine etc)
Is there anything I can do? Take instead of the above?
I miss having the energy, I miss feeling happy and healthy even under family loses... My hair used to get so many compliments but if I brush my hair clumps just fall into the brush!!
If you can offer any advice I would be so appreciative,
