Have you tried strictly gluten free diet yet?

Graves is autoimmune

What about acid reflux. It's a typical symptom of being hypothyroid.

Healing the gut is very important

Perhaps consider a recommended nutritionist.

And if u have slightly elevated tpo antibodies what does that mean bcs when they did ultrasound of my neck the sonographer said its thyroiditis what does that mean I don't understand both of these

Make sure you get copies of your blood tests never leave your health just to the gp or endo, get copies on here and members will help you, ive done nothing but learn from this site over the last 8 months of being ill and off work with this disease-you have to know what you have and how to go forward-also copies help you to look back at decide where you felt good in the range.

I am currently on titration doses of carbi now 2.5mgs and looking back feel better than 4 months ago but still symptomatic-3 immune diseases and iron def dont help but hey ho i will get there just like you will.😊😊

I took carbimazole for only up to 8 weeks then my endo stopped it saying its all normal even I was still symptomatic I know carbi was making me hypo but there should be another option I'm not the same person anymore don't feel 100% myself couple of weeks back my GP tested me for celiac which came negative bcs after having thyroid issue last year in august I was diagnosed with stomach gastritis that's not good either I'm trying different things to control that which is helping like u I'm a mother of 4 young kids my oldest is almost12...and youngest is 2 and half to be honest with u I have learnt even ur blood results are normal if the antibodies are there that's what they have to control I know going gluten is a big help but there should be something else to suppress them I hope and pray we all get better soon...keep updating each other so we know what we can do ....hugs ..

I only have experience of private endocrinologist fees (£150-200) Most endocrinologists are not interested in gut

But getting gut Better is essential. There are couple of nutritionist on Thyroid UK list

Consultations are possibly slightly cheaper, but stool testing etc can add up

Many find strictly gluten free diet helps as first step. Plus probiotics, fermented foods etc

I am always dizzy but some days like you it's a feeling as if you must eat or you will pass out. I have had glucose level tested in the past and apparently they are fine. I don't know what causes it but it's horrible. My body can be warm but hands a feet freezing. I usually feel like this when I am really tired. No idea if it's connected🤔

Ur symptoms are exactly like mine I do get all these symptoms its weird all started after having thyroid issue I never had these issues before
