I've read a few posts recently all referring to being "dry", referencing dry eyes, dry skin, affected digestion and so on. Has anyone come across anything that helps alleviate these symptoms? I thought I'd try drinking more water and increased my intake about a month ago, but all that it does is make me go to the loo more often. However, this increase in liquid intake just happened to coincide with a return of some of my other symptoms following a change of brand in levo, which my body doesn't appear to like, so who knows, maybe it would have worked otherwise....?
Although I was first diagnosed as hypo just over a decade ago, and had been suffering for almost a decade before, it's only in the last 12-18 months I've had dry eyes, and only slightly longer for the dry skin. These issues only arose when I wasn't on any medication and I haven't had much luck resolving them yet. Changing GP and being put back on levothyroxine (my previous GP took me off it as I was cured, apparently!) has resolved all my other symptoms, pretty much, just the dry eyes and forehead to sort out.
Any suggestions welcome.
Thanks and Merry Christmas everyone.
