Hi everyone, I had a dental appointment last week and it turns out that the tooth I have an amalgam filling in is cracked and 'leaking' amalgam. I ahve since discovered that there is a strong correlation between the mercury and other heavy metals present in amalgam fillings and the development of auto-immune thyroiditis (Hashimotos) and pituitary axis dysfunction. I plan to have this amalgam removed at the end of september and replaced with resin.
My question is, have any of you with Hashimotos or Graves found an improvement in your symptoms after having amalgam fillings removed? if so, how long was it before you started to feel a noticeable improvement? Did you undergo the MELISA test to determine if you have a hypersensitivity to heavy metals?
