I've just been put on 3 sets of different medications supplements by a private GP to help with symptoms of hypothyroidism, oestrogen dominance caused by low progesterone, and adrenal fatigue. You may remember that my GP and endo had refused to treat my hypothyroid symptoms as my tsh T4 and t3 were officially in 'range' albeit only just.
However from the recommendation of people on here I had an appointment with this hollistic private GP who treats patients according to symptoms and blood tests, which was a first for me!
I've just started taking half a grain of nature throid NDT a day for the first 2 weeks. I then should also be starting the progestérone cream and adrenal supplements (iron complex, b complex, Magnesium, rhodiola complex, zinc picolinate, vit C).
However two of my big hypothyroid symptoms have been weight gain (6kg this year, and I'm naturally petite so this has really knocked my confidence) and acne. I hoped the nature throid would start to help these, among other symptoms. But I've just read that progesterone cream can cause your body to produce excess œstrogen at first and therefore make you gain weight and have worse acne!!
I don't know whether I should just try the nature throid for the first few months so I can tell which medication is helping my symptoms, and not cause contradicting effects. Or do they need to work together? I'll be so anxious if my weight gain and acne worsen even more.
