Please advise !
I wish to know if I should be on NDT.
I had excruciating pains in my back/ shoulders, 2 months ago, ending in emergency room. Found out I had a thyroid nodule 2.5 cm with yet inconclusive cancer Harthle cells, on the right thyroid gland. Because of this wonderful site with such of high knolegeble people's advises, (fighting with I do not remember how many endo dr to have prescriptions for thyroid lab !...) I found out slowly that I have low thyroid hormons !!!
I was so cold, start to lose the hair, headaches, no sleep, tired, alwayes tired, very low temperatures and low blood pressure.
The endo dr after only the test of
TSM = 1.91 (0.40 - 4.50) in August, prescribed Levothyroxine 0.025 he said that I have hypothyroidism. I tooked the Levothyroxine for 19 days, it was hell. I stopped !!!
I start a very clean nutrition diet, as gluten free, no lactates, no sugar, no alcohol, no broccoli, no caffe, etc. Being careful also for the liver. I had liver failer last Nov, taking Ursodiol 500mg ×2/day. I believe the thyroid gland was effected by liver problem, as a domino effect.
I start to take Cal-Mag citrate with D3 and K2, Magnesium, Zink, B12, probiotics, Cod liver, Milk thisilyn. Every day a banana for Potassium. I got fresh pork liver from the butcher, and I eat every day, as a little cooked. I eat also sea weeds.
And, my pains are gone ! And I sleep all night !!!
My recent results are all OK, exept:
TSH. 2.85. (0.40-4.50)
T4. 6.2. (4.5-12.0)
FT4. 0.9. (0.8-1.8)
T3. 68. (76-181)
FT3. 2.2. (2.3-4.2)
Alkaline Phossphatase 181. (35-105)
Hematocrit. 45. (33.2-43.4)
Folate. Over 24. (3.4-5.4)
Still have a little inflamation on the venous jugulare. I hope after the another biopsy on the nodule, I will not be obligate to have 1/2 thyroid, removed.
Does anybody tried to incrise the thyroid hormones eating pork liver ? If yes, pls, do you eat without to be cook ? What dayly portions ?
Please, may I have your advise, regarding my results and what else I should be advise ?
Thank you very much
