I am not on medication but have very high thyroid antibodies-not high enough to be considered for medication though apparently. I feel OK most of the time but have terrible mood swings, thinning hair, find it hard to lose weight, low libido, depression etc. I've never had to deal with anything like this before and am finding it pretty hard.
After reading up about the gluten/thyroid connection I decided to go gluten free and as I had a bit of a history of problems with dairy I gave that up too. That was back in September and apart from feeling a bit better gut-wise I feel no different. My temperature used to be around 34 but over Christmas it gradually increased to 36 which I was thrilled about, but since then it's gradually been dropping and is now 34 again. I am really starting to despair. How do I know if I'm doing the right thing? Obviously it's pointless going to my GP so I am really hoping someone can help. Thanks a lot x
