I was very surprised to learn today that people like myself that suffer from an Underactive Thyroid may actually have an increased life expectancy.
In the UK the average life expectancy for a Man is 78 years.
This is increased to 93 years old for a Man with an Underactive Thyroid.
It should be noted that you should be tested regularly around once every 3 months.
Take the correct medication and the right dosage.
I take mine as soon as I wake up, this give me time to shower , brush my teeth and get dressed before eating my Breakfast which is usually 3 boiled eggs and a cup of coffee.
Immediately before I have my breakfast and get a 2 tablespoons of Apple Cider Vinegar in to a glass and add cold water and an ice cube and drink it.
This has lead to me losing around 20kg of excess body fat without crash dieting or increased physical exercise in the past year.
THIS WAS RECOMMENDED BY GP. PLEASE CONSULT YOUR OWN FOR PROFESSIONAL ADVICE BEFORE EMBARKING ON IT.
I usually skip lunch altogether and eat a meal of either meat or fish with a salad.
Any pudding you like.
Before the evening meal I also take 2 XLS medical tablets.
Since my new very easy to follow changes, I have lost weight, and my medication has been reduced from 100mcg (Levothyroxine) to just 25mcg (Levothyroxine).
My TFT are showing at 6, which is just slightly above normal and I feel refreshed.
Last thing at night, I drink 1 small glass (equivalent to 2x shots) or Rum.
I do not know why, but my Doctor said a small amount of alcohol before bed can in some people actually improve Liver function, just don't over do it.
So there you have it. You can reverse a lot issues associated with the disease and still hopefully have a long and happy Life.
