I was diagnosed with Hashimotos a few months ago- since then I have already changed my endocrinologist - his comment that oh - everyone has it bothered me . Since researching on-line convinced me that it actually is a big deal and I was entitled to a bit more information .... my first TSH was 6.12 and Anti-TPO 2061.6 IU/ml- B12 was 271 pg/ml . After 2 months on Euthyrox 88 my last TSH was 2.73mIU/ml and the second endo told me my thyroid was now functioning normally (ha ha!) he did test me for D3 which was ok (35.09 ng/ml)
I am trying to go gluten and dairy free to boost my immune system and have cut caffeine out also . Still on 1 tablet of Euthyrox and B12(lamberts 1000mg)
I don't have any serious symptoms - before medication I had brain fog and disturbed sleep patterns - the weight over the last few years piled on - but hope with my new nutrition program I will eventually shed some pounds.
I'm glad I've discovered this site where I can write in English - I joined a group in Greece but I can only speak and read Greek - not write it.
Hashimotos seems to be an epidemic and it's really difficult to find any doctors here who understand even the basics so I've already started learning from this site and all the comments - courage to all!
