how did you find out you were hypothyroid?
do you have a vitamin d deficiency? i found out i had a pretty bad one and that was really making me feel bad.
what is the diet like you are going to try? i think im hypo but the tests never show that i am.
I found out I was hypothyroid when I went in for a routine physical and had bloodwork done for TSH levels. I don't recall if the TSH test was routine or done based on my doctor's conversation with me, although I never brought up the topic myself. I was told that I have Hashimito's disease, an autoimmune disorder where the immune system attacks the thyroid.
I've never gotten vitamin D levels checked, but I haven't seen any difference when I've gotten more of it, either through diet or sunshine, so I can probably rule that out.
Did you just find out your vitamin D issue recently? Are you feeling better now because you've been able to address that?
I haven't read my diet book yet and haven't begun the changes- but I know that it recommends cutting out gluten (which is in many baked goods) among other things. Overall I would think my current diet is very healthy. I'm a natural food nut and don't consume any artificial ingredients (except for rare occasions). Maybe I'm just sensitive to certain normal foods and don't realize it... I figure I better try something.
