Hi there, I only found this forum the other day and the comments are so helpful!! I was diagnosed with hashimoto 8 years ago and have been taking 900mg kelp daily for 7 years alongside 150mg levothyroxine. The last 8 months has been virus after virus and i'm constantly exhausted. I have a 5 year old and ran a half marathon last year so normally pretty active. Acupuncture has worked in the past but its not doing anything this time.
My last blood test in May was TSH: 0.02 and T4: 23
The Doctor wanted to reduce my dose of 150mg but I asked for a antibodies test which has come back as: Anti-TPO Antibodies 565 U/ml.
I haven't taken kelp or eaten gluten for 4 days in the hope that this will help. I know that it takes a while to improve and I've had 6 month downtimes before but never this bad so I'm looking for any suggestions....x
