Hi all, this is my first post, I had my diagnosis just before Xmas and have started on 50mg Levothyroxine, I feel less tired unless I do anything that is in anyway taxing, I'm back in the docs again Tuesday to have my blood tested again and up the dose if necessary.
I'm trying to find out what I can eat, what supplements I should take to try and help myself and really anything I should avoid or look out for and it's a mine field! I'm feeling a bit overwhelmed by all the different information out there!
Does anyone have any pearls of wisdom to share with me to help me start to make the changes I need to make that will help. I'm a vegetarian as well so that seems to confuse matters!!
One worrying thing I have noticed is the condition of my hair! It's suddenly really dry and thin, this has happened since I started the meds, is this normal? Can I counter this with any supplements?
I'm sure this will make more sense to me once the meds are right and the brain fog is improved, does anyone else have that?
Anyway thanks for reading my rambling post and I would appreciate any advise from anyone really!! Thanks again xx
