Thank you for all wonderful messages that I have received from you so far.
I am still wondering what could cause my hypothyroidism?
I never had any history of thyroid issues in my family. No autoimmune disorders apart from diabetes type 2 ( my mum when she was in her 70 - ties, and it is very common among older people to suffer from diabetes type 2 ).
My TSH was measured between 2009 and 2012 but only in 2012 I had TSH together with T4 and TPO done.
Between 2009 and July 2012 my TSH was between 1.5- 2.5, then in December 2012 - TSH went up to 13 with T4 level of 12 and TPO below 20.
Prior to escalation of TSH I had very bad food poisoning which gave me very bad complications such as IbS. I have stopped eating and I wasn't supplementing for quite a while, I do now.
My diet must have been out of iodine for months ( I was so preoccupied with GI symptoms that I did not think about supplementing iodine)
Maybe long period of Iodine depletion caused my TSH to raise so high?
So maybe it can be treated with high doses of iodine only ?
I am scared to supplement myself with very high doses of iodine because if by any chances this is the beginning of Hashimoto's I might make myself worse.
I am wondering what do you think?
