Starting to feel better

Posted , 5 users are following.

It's been two weeks now since I reduced my dose of levo from 125mcg to 100mcg. I am starting to feel a lot better. I am also taking iodine, calcium, magnesium, Vit B complex, Vit D, Vit C, zinc and selenium.

I have much more energy to do things and no longer have brain fog. I have even finally started to lose weight. smile

    Hi Lia, thanks for posting your change in dose and the supplements you've added. Seems to go a lot towards the value of supplements. Good to know!

      Well I thought a positive post might be useful as sometimes the negatives can make you fearful that there is no way out of feeling ill.

      I started on the supplements after doing a lot of research on the thyroid gland.

    Great to hear improvement. I'd suggest being careful of selenium as too much can cause probs. I took supplements for only one month and started to feel better but then tests showed too much selenium. Good luck!

    Hi hope you don't mind me asking but brain fog is one of the sife affects i find really hard! Is this a multi vitamin table you take or are they individual ones?

    Many thanks

      Hi Claire, I don't mind at all.

      I got fed up waiting for things to happen. I am 54 - not an old 54 I hasten to add! I have been active all my life so feeling 'doped up', for want of a better expression was getting me down. The weight ditto.

      I did a lot of research on the function of the thyroid and decided to act for myself.

      I take these:

      sea kelp - for iodine

      Vitamin C and zinc combined


      Vit D big dose once a month

      Magnesium and calcium combined

      Vit B complex

      I hope this helps you. Feel free to message me. smile
