I am now 6 weeks carbimazole free my bloods from last week are...
Tsh 2.11 (0.27-4.2)
Ft3 4.8 ( 3.1-6.8)
Ft4 18 (12-22)
I am feeling so much better in myself from not taking carbimazole I do still have a muzzy/ unbalanced/confused brain (started 2weeks after stopping carb) and suffered with abit of depression this week (mainly thinking when is this going to end and just can't believe whats happened this last year and how my life has changed and that I can't cope but I know I will get back to normal) I have now seen 3 different gps about this and they have said I need to be patient my body is trying to rebalance itself and after taking carbimazole for 14 months And being so symptomatic I'm not going to bounce back to normal straight way. Oh patience why I have I not learned this by now With a year or so of thyroid disease 🙄😂
Anyways my reason for posting I just wanted to see if anyone has got any tips on how I can support myself and hopefully keep myself in remission?
I am not on any medication at all now I have just seen a nutritionist as I have been gluten,dairy,soya,sugar free only drinking filtered water for 9 months now And this diet doesn't seem to bother me though I would like to reintroduce the odd alcoholic drink back in and some dairy !! This has massively helped my digestion even the nutritionist said how well I had reacted to this But she said to start to take probiotics for next 3 months, I have regular acupuncture, I'm back to excercise (not as much as before) I meditate. I'm just wondering about herbal teas (I hate the taste of tea but I will do anything to help 😊 ) any recommendations?
Also is it normal to take time to get back to normal after finishing the carbimazole course?
