Hello, I'm a former graves disease patient, in remission since 2011. (diagnosed in 2008). Was treated with block / replace method (carbimazole and levo).
I'm 45 and 2 months ago I started to have hot flashes (at night mainly) and skipped 2 periods since, so it looks like I'm in perimenopause 😡. The GPS I saw ruled out thyroid disease relapse as the tests came back normal. I also feel fine within my self, no thyroid symptoms during the day and no symptoms except light flushes. But sleep quite poorly because of the hot flushes which are stronger then and wake me up 3-4 times a night at least and sometimes trigger full insomnia.
I've been taking menopace for about a month and not sure it is really helping but I might need to take it longer to see any effect. But I noticed that there is iodine in it (225 um) and I'm a bit worried I should stay away from supplements with iodine because of my thyroid history. Does anyone know if this dosage could be harmful?
The full formula of this supplement can be found here
Any advice on that welcome. Thanks in advance ☺️
PS: I also started black cohosh 2 weeks ago as it's been recommended to me by a friend to control hot flushes...
