Hi, I have had symptoms of Hypothyroidism for around 20 yrs, and sick of suffering, but my GP wont test for T3, my TSH and T4 are apparently in range, and so suspect I am not converting to T3. I am having problems getting a copy of my detailed results from my GP atm. I have had several Bioresonance test which show i am suffering with advanced hypothyroidism and an ultrasound scan in Mexico showed that I had a swelling or nodules on my thyroid. I am desperate for help and considering trying the Naturthroid as I cannot afford the private tests or consultations. I also have Chronic long term Lyme (26 yrs) and many co infections, EDS (connective tissue disorder) and POTS, MTHFR and HLA mutations and tremendous inflammation throughout my body.
25mg Iodine per day, Multi Methyl B vits with methylfolate (my levels of b12 and folate levels are now within range but my Ferritin is 9!), VitC 1000mg per day, Magnesium and I take Selenium and Zinc daily.
I no longer take anti-biotics and am not being treated for the Lyme or Co infections, the NHS treat me as a hypochondriac and only offer anti depressants and NSAIDS.
