As someone who has been actively managing Hashimoto's for three years now I have started to notice when I'm going through a flare up. For me, I start to become increasingly tired despite always taking medicine, vitamins, good diet and exercise. I'll lose a lot of hair in one day (usually just one time) and my brain fog is almost always constant. I takes a few weeks to subside and I carry on.
My question is - is it possible to track symptoms and catch the beginning of a flare up and somehow avert it?
Does anyone track symptoms as a way to anecdotally track overall health? I appreciate periodic testing is the only way to have an accurate picture but I it seems this is something that might be helpful as an additional step to track day to day.
