Hi Everyone,

?Just need to share with you a post on THYROID UK Facebook page from 19th October. It was THYROID  AWARENESS WEEK last week and the article has been very informative to me. It says that Natural Dessicated Thyroid can be prescribed on the NHS in the UK for people like me that can't take the synthetic Thyroxine. I thought it was only available in the USA.

?I have been waiting for an appointment with a specialist for 5 months and have just today managed to get one in 3 months time. 

?I have been borderline UAT for many tears and using VIts/Minerals,Kelp and Diet to control it. The last couple of blood tests have been over borderline,hence my GP sending me to a specialist. I have virtaully no symptoms of UAT.

?My latest blood test last week has just come back returning to borderline again, but strangely something in this article said it can make a difference what time of day you have the blood taken and if it is a fasting test like I had last time . This latest one was just before lunch.

?I don't think I am UAT and don't want to take Throxine for life with the side effects that people complain of on this forum.I am fit and healthy, exercise regularily and eat well and don't want all of that to change. 

If the Endocronologist thinks I need it and I can get NDT prescribed though, then I would definately try it..

      Hi Cartherine,

      ?I have just read Jame's post with interest. I agree not ot eat Cruciferous veg Cauli, Sprouts, Brocali and Cabbage also Swede and Turnip but I didn't know about Carrots which I eat a lot of.

      ?As for Vitamins ect I took advice from a Nutritionalist who advised me to take B50Complex, Vitamin C 500mg, Zinc 15mg. Magnesium 150mg and I also take 2 Organic Kelp Tablets 500mg each morning and evening.

      ?Another thing is to use a Flouride Free toothpaste for UAT.

      ?Prunes are good apparenly but keep off Peanuts.

      ?All the very best. Love Cheryl.

      Thanks James. I was on a high protein diet in the past when I was able to get the hypothyroidism into remission for over a decade. I figured the higher meat protein had something to do with it.

      Now, the meds have messed me up so much, I'm just hoping I can recover somehow.

      The diet is simple you eat foods high in protein, you see in most cases it's the immune system that is attacking the thyroid and the protein feeds the cells of your body just like the thyroid would feed the cells of your body with the protein that you eat so with the immune system attacking the thyroid you must not eat the foods that are boosting the immune system these foods are as follows - 

      Cabbage

      Carrots

      Cauliflower 

      Broccoli 

      Turnip 

      You will be able to eat these foods after your body returns to "normal" this will only take around 4-5 weeks! 

      My fiancee has now been off any tablets for this for the last 18 months and she feels fine she has just recently had 2 periods in a row and she cont remember the last time this happened!

      She worked for a doctor and he has said if you have regular periods it means your healthy! 

      Best Regards,

      James.

      Thanks James. That's encouraging. It worked for me years ago, but I may need to try other methods to get the autoimmune disease under control.

      I'm familiar with the goitrogen foods- cruciferous veggies, strawberries, and others.I can't help but point out the obvious question: if I'm hypothyroid and these foods stimulate the thyroid, then doesn't it make sense that we eat more of these? I'm not sold that these foods cause goiter, only that it's possible they stimulate the thyroid and there's some other common factor that results in goiter, like endocrine system hormone imbalance.

      If something is attacking something else you have to first weaken the attacker which in this case ir the immune system by depriving it of the foods that would make it strong as in the cabbage, carrots, cauliflower, broccoli and turnip! 

      Then you have to build your defences up of the thyroid we know that the thyroid supplies protein to the cells in our body, so we need to build the amount of protein up that we eat! 

      What we are trying to do herd is fix the T4 and in turn this will fix the T3 within the same process!

      Just to let you know my fiancee was going to have to have a biopsy because of a scan she had which showed some polyps I was there at the scan and seen these fir myself, it was nit looking good, then 4-5 weeks later the doctor whom I had told I would fix her thyroid send her for another blood test and it came back normal nothing more to be done no tablets to take! 

      Best Regards,

      James.
