I was diagnosed as hypothyroid about 5 years ago while pregnant with my son and ever since my medication has been gradually going up. I've been trying to alter my diet for health and weight loss and went paleo for about 80% of the time last year. I was getting terrible anxiety symptoms at about that time with shakes and worrying about silly things and not sleeping well at all. I went to see a nutritionist and she realised I'd been eating too much fat and protein and not enough good carbs causing my adrenals to become overactive and tired. She really helped me and I now know that I need to eat regularly or I get the shakes. But I've only had the usual test at the Dr's and I'm wondering if I should have a more thorough blood test.
I've been trying so hard to eat well and exercise regularly and I'm finding it hard to shift the weight (I'm not that big but I'm trying really hard), I do feel tired sometimes, more so than I feel I should and I do sometimes still get the brain fog.
Any advice would be appreciated because I really don't understand it really and want to try and take control of it
