Probiotics have helped

I was diagnosed as hypothyroid 15 years ago. I've had the same issues as everyone else with levithyroxine and am now self medicating on ndt. I just wanted to tell people that I've recently started to take a probiotic capsule daily and it has helped. I now have more energy. I don't know whether probiotics will help anyone else , but I know so many of us are struggling and I thought I'd share my experience in the hope it might help others

Glad to hear the probiotics are helping you. It sounds as though you have or had a malabsorption problem. Leaky gut syndrome. Take care

I've never heard of leaky gut syndrome - will investigate. Thanks for that

That's great to hear, which probiotic are you taking?

Thank you.

I'm unsure whether we're allowed to name brands? admin? Will pm you

Yes I just thought the same after I asked the question.

Thank you.

Can you PM me too please? I have read that you shouldn't take the same one for too long so I'm on the hunt for a new one :-)
