I've been off thyroid medication for 8 months now with the help amino acid supplements.
I have advanced thyroid disease and after cycling through a myriad of medications, gave up on them because they made me horribly sick.
I don't bother even testing anymore. What's the use?
So, now, it's turned quite cold and things have progressively gotten worse with the cold, including brain fog. So you see, it's difficult to self monitor, as I don't realize until I've become so foggy, cold and plagued with migraines...
It seems I should test, except the lag on deppped thyroxin levels makes even testing useless, since by the time it shows up, I'm pretty much completely incapacitated.
I've tried asking my close friends to watch for signs that I'm getting low, but after several years, I've yet to have anyone point out that I might be low, even though I've asked them to watch for signs.
Once I realized, I immoderately took more aminos and other supplements, got a space heater while I sleep, and feel a thousand times better.
Does anyone have an early detection method to recognize and head off thyroid dips before they're so bad you can't function?
