Hi everyone my names Matt and I've been experiencing hypothyroidism symptoms for about 5-6 months now. Had my blood test results and told nothing wrong with thyroid (not seen actual test results on paper) but gp said I have too much iron in blood. I was wondering whether anyone knows whether this can mimic the symptoms of hypothyroidism because I have most if not all of th symptoms.
Fatigue,tired,depression,hard to focus,sore joints, sensitive to cold, always wearing 4-5 layers even if sunny and warm, get cold after eating, dry skin, pale face, yellow to nails, foot pain, pine and needl s hands and feet, purple feet, low libido, cold feet and hands.
Also I feel better when I take a multi vitamin in th morning without food and don't eat for about 3 hours also exercise within that time. If I eat breakfast the symptoms get worse especially depression.
Gp told me to stop taking anything with iron in. I take one and half teaspoon wheatgrass powder,one teaspoon maca and cinnamon in the morning. These contain iron but I didn't think it was that much. Gp said iron should be around 200 something but mines 300 something.
What do you guys think any help? Thanks.
