I’m posting for the first time after following the community’s invaluable posts for a few months now.
I’m early 30s and was diagnosed with Hashimotos in 2015. My antibodies have stayed steady between the 40-80 mark (400-800, depending on where you place the decimal) since then and my TSH remained between 0.9-2.3. I’ve tried every holistic therapy in the book - from NAET to acupuncture, diets, herbal supplementation and bio resonance therapy, but haven’t managed to significantly improve my symptoms.
Last November, as my anxiety and symptoms were getting worse, my doctor offered a small dose of Levo (25 mcg). After much research, I went and ordered NDT from LuckyVitamin as an alternative. To cut a long story short, I started suffering from terrible insomnia, numbness in my fingers, and increased anxiety and irritability. When I next had a blood test this April my antibodies had gone up to 181 (1810) and TSH to 4.8. I stopped the NDT overnight and subsequently had another blood test weeks later. My TSH was 6.8. I requested another blood test to include antibodies and 3 weeks later (this week), my readings are 210 (2100) and a TSH of 9.3. I’m petrified that the NDT has induced the onset of hypothyroidism - or fast forwarded it - and I don’t know what to do.
Is there any way to reverse what’s happened? i.e. can I undo the amount and multiplication of antibodies that the NDT seems to have induced?
Any help / advice you could give would be sincerely appreciated x
