May 23, 2018 · Hypo and Hyper thyroid hell!! in Autoimmune Diseases

I went through similar situation. ER a few times, ekg fine. Follow up with dr, my tsh , t3 and t4 low, low vitamin d too. I switched to armour, that didn’t work. Then I tried compounding with t3 added. Was doing ok, but still had symptoms. Now I’m on tirosint, which doesn’t have fillers or dyes
I suggest having your vitamin d checked, iron too. And have all your sex hormones checked. As we age, our hormones decrease which can impact thyroid levels.
Also, with Lyme disease on the rise, would be good to be checked as well.

May 18, 2017 · Chronic Pain members - Welcome, please introduce yourself in Chronic Pain

Chronic pelvic pain can be from numerous issues. Endometriosis, adenomyosis, scar tissue, interstitial cystitis, ovarian cysts, bowel issues such as IBS or constipation. I suffer endometriosis and have had years of drs who put it down as cramps. It took me 20 years for a dx. Laparoscopic procedure was done and that is the only way to dx endometriosis- adenomyosis is uterus. How are your menstrual cycles? Thyroid? And yes the thyroid can even cause havoc to female issues. The endocrine system is all connected.

Mar 21, 2017 · Low/High TSH Levels, and Impact on Other Conditions? in Diabetes/Endocrine System

You don’t have to see an endocrinologist either. There are integrative drs and functional med drs that treat. My Dr is integrative and much more up to date on thyroid than the endo my daughter and I saw.

Many who are on dessicated need t3 also. I’m on Levo so still learning myself all this thyroid stuff. I’ve also cut out processed foods, dairy and gluten. Ugh. What a headache. Lol!!! There’s many different issues ranging from person to person as far as diet, activity, age, thyroid treatment, supplementation, etc. if you are deficient in vitamin D, that can cause symptoms related to thyroid. Same with hormones. Magnesium, selenium and vitamin D in my opinion are very important for us thyroid peeps. I buy NOW brand and take 10,000IU’s daily. I a
Do take K2 with it as it helps to absorb. Check out thyroid healing journey on Facebook – it’s a private group and if you post there, they may be able to give you more info. I’ve learned so much and feel so much better since taking vitamin D!! I do suffer Hashimotos and my understanding is that hashis will and can alternate up and down. Have you had antibodies tested??? If you have elevated antibodies, the first step is to reduce and that is by diet modification and supplementation.

Aww I’m sorry to hear if your daughters struggles with endometriosis. It is a debilitating disease. It’s hard to give advice as each case is different. There are quite a few questions- was there any blood testing done? On her hormone levels? Thyroid? Is she currently taking anything ? During her diagnosis what did they do? Was surgery done? Was it excision surgery or just a lap? What is her diet like? So much correlates with each other. For instance, if her estrogen is dominant then it would be best to start her in progesterone. Bio identical (BHRT) is best. Have you looked into having her see an endometriosis dr that specializes in endo? There are a few support groups on fb – Dr.John F Dulrma Endometriosis and Pelvic Pain Has a Facebook page to join and get some helpful insight and info. Good luck to your daughter and hope she gets better

Many who suffer hashis also suffer allergies and vitamin deficiencies. Make sure to have your vitamins checked like vitamin D. Diet modification is crucial in helping with inflammation. cutting out gluten, refined sugars and processed foods. Go slow!!! Add probiotics and look into maybe thyroid groups online. I found one on fb and have learned a lot. Don’t expect an overnight success, it takes time and patience. Be sure to journal everything down. What you ate and overtime you may start to see a pattern. Alcohol was a big Nono for me.

Thanks for the tag. – as a fellow thyroid sufferer, I will say the most important test is antibodies. That’s the auto immune factor. Be sure your daughter gets tested for thyroglobulin and peroxidase. Vitamin levels such as vitamin D and iron. Ferritin and selenium. I also suggest that she cut out inflammatory foods such as dairy and gluten. It’s an elimination diet and she must be strict with it. After a few months she can slowly introduce one at a time and she will be able to see also if certain foods are causing her issues. I’m in the process myself of doing allergy testing and looking to see why levothyroxine is bothering me now after 20 years of being on it. I found lennett laboratories manufactures it now and acquired Levo roughly a year and half ago. / so could be ingredient formula change. Hope your daughter feels better / I felt the same and just got dxd with Hashimotos last December. I’ve been on AIP diet and noticed a huge difference but something still us bothering me and only thing it could be is Levo. It’s a very hard disease to live with and each of our cases is different, but I do know the thyroid controls the whole body and each cell thrives on t3. When we take t4 pill our liver converts it to t3. Have a full thyroid test done and tsh doesn’t mean squat if you have Hashimotos.
