Yeah i did it... finger prick test !!!

Hi Everyone ...well after completely mucking up my first BH finger test...!! now with the help from seasidesusie, clutter, greygoose and many other fantastic admin staff and members this morning i managed to do it and filled both tubes ...took it at 07.00am no ndt for 24hrs fasting for 12 hrs just water and no vitamins/suppliments taken for a few days either. So i await my results to find out WHY? for 2 years i have been so poorly bedbound most of the time even spending xmas day in bed. As soon as i get them i will be in touch for all your experience and assistance in help to get myself back on the road to recovery. It seems strange that the minute i stop taking my naturethoid i feel better the nausea goes, my balance is back to normal i feel like me again ...then i start again on ndt and i am back in bed !!!what to do .....we will find out soon

Kindest regards and thank you

Well done and go to the top of the class as I don't think I'd be able to draw my blood. :)

Despite Nature Throid being hypoallergenic I don't know why you have nausea. Why don't you email RLC labs and ask - is the Nature Throid genuine for instance.

I do know we can suffer unpleasant symptoms from fillers/binders but that shouldn't happen with Nature Throid or Westhroid.

Have you tried taking an anti-histamine tablet one hour before Nature Throid? If you then didn't have nausea you would be sensitive to something in it and report to RLC labs.
