Need some advise Please.
Have had Crohn's for 20+ yrs. Always had side effects from drugs so been managing it by myself. Last year and a half with strict diet-fruit, veges, oats, nuts&seeds & eggs + Vitamin D. Been working well. Last 3 years been slightly Hypo and advised to take Kelp supplement. Beginning of this year started going Hyper and told to stop kelp & would correct itself. May this year got Covid, then a urinary infection followed by an eye infection which turned into cellulitis. Felt terrible, thought I had long covid, extreme fatigue, muscle weakness, (having been very fit) and my heart feeling like it was going to explode. Then my Crohns kicked in and I couldn't keep any food in, extreme diarrhoea. Am not eating food now, living on hospital drinks which have all your daily vitamins & minerals, but also Iodine! Has settled my bowel down completely.
Blood test last week:
T4 33.6 pmol/L (12-22) High.
TSH <0.01 mlU/L(0.40-4.00) Low
T3 9.3 pmol/L (2.5-6.0) High.
Doctor prescribed Carbimazole 2.5mg. Said low dose as I's sensitive to drugs & this is a very dangerous drug and I had to agree to go on it.
Having read on here I have started L-Carnitine 330mg - 3 times a day.
Plus drinking Lemon Balm tea.
Still on spin bike but only 30mins, as they didn't seem concerned.
Doc to see me again in 3 weeks.
Can I take Bugleweed, Motherwort and should I be on Acetyl L-canitine and if so what dose for these.
Really struggling & would like to get back to eating again.
Any suggestions please.
