I'm a newbie. I've been taken thyroxine for the past 14 years. I started on 50 mcgs initially and after a few years had the dose increased by my GP to 100mcgs. There is a history of thyroid condition in my family. My father had hyperthyroidism and after surgery he developed hypothyroidism. My paternal aunt had thyroid cancer in her early 30's but seem to have recovered as she is 95 now. I'm not sure of she takes thyroid medication or not.
I saw a nutritionalist recently and she stated me on Thyroid Correct which is a supplement that is safe to take with thyroxine. It is manufactured by Wild Nutrition. I think it helped but might have just been a placebo. I'm also taking iron and multivitamin supplements from the same company as my GP said my iron count was low on my last blood check but that the thyroid levels were within normal range. I still feel exhausted but not nearly as exhausted as I did before taking the supplements.
Here is my question - I have heard that Ashawanga supplement is good for thyroid disorders and for adrenal fatigue which I think I have too. Has anyone out there in the community taken it or heard of any benefits or side effects that they could share with me please? I should have said that I'm 63 so I guess I can expect to feel tired at times!
