I was diagnosed with Hypothroid 3 years ago and I really think I’ve underestimated this chronic disease. I was told by GP I had it- given medication and off I went. After contracting Flu 2 weeks ago I have been floored - this is week 3 and I am still extremely fatigued - I feel pathetic but I now realising perhaps I am being a little hard on myself and this could be an added effect of my hypothyroidism. I feel now I need to start to understand the implications, diet, exercise etc - I am 47 and like others my age am also probably hitting the menopause. I really need advice on good books to read about diet, lifestyle and managing myself . I think it’s time to try and take control.
