Menopause and Hypothyroidism

Hi - I have just turned 50 and have had an under active thyroid since I was 10 years old. I am now suffering with the Menopause and trying to get myself feeling healthy and reduce symptoms such as hot flushes, night sweats, lack of energy and general lethargy. I have seen some supplements that I want to consider and have already started to change my diet to Soya rich, but nowhere can I find information on how taking supplements will impact on my Thyroid.

Does anyone know of a good resource to check against or is there any recommendations that you have used, as there does seem to be limited info on Thyroid and Menopause together. I am keen to stay on a herbal route and have seen Maca Root as one solution. Any ideas?

  • Hi defoey😊

    I think you'd get good advice from healthunlocked thyroiduk 🙂 xB

  • I am not sure what Soya rich is, but you can't eat soy when you are hypo. I am 55 and hypo myself. 

  • Hi I am 47 and going through the same thing I have 25mg Levothyroxine in the morning and about tea time I take the Seven Seas perfect 7 supplement I have noticed it does make me feel slightly more energetic and helps with the night time hot flashes.
