    I did but I was losing weight. I already had hashi's even though it was I diagnosed. I was diagnosed hypothyroid though.

    I was most likely hypo for 10+ years before my doc said he would check my...

    Urban, I haven't been doing the AIP very long but my energy is already better! I'm keeping eggs for now also.

    Marcadav, Does that mean that every person with hashimotos has a nodule on their...

    If you don't have antibodies, there's no need for the autoimmune protocol. Fruit would help with natural thyroid production though.

    Choco, it's not low carb. I'm doing it too. It restricts eggs, nightshades, nuts/seeds... And if there's anything else I can't remember. :)

    I am eating eggs though.

    Btw, my temps used to be in the high 96's before I was on the right thyroid meds.

    Veggielover, I think you are on the right path. :)

    ETA: have you had your thyroid antibodies checked?
  6. My waking morning temp is anywhere from...

    My waking morning temp is anywhere from 97.9-98.1. That's up from 97.6. I have low morning and midday cortisol. I'm pretty sure that's due to being so low on T3 for a long long time. I'm using the...

    Ever since being treated with T3 containing thyroid meds my TSH is pretty much non existent. My doctor has said that's fine because my body can tell I have enough thyroid hormone. She also said it's...

    As long as you don't have hyper symptoms, I see no problem with your dose. :)

    I hope it starts working better for you soon! I know how frustrating all this thyroid/hormonal stuff can be.

    That's a lot of armour to be taking in the first 3 weeks! I had worked my way up to 4 grains of Naturethroid after 5 months and people acted like I was on a huge dose. You may have some kind of...

    I started on Armour 9 months ago. I'm taking something different now though. I noticed a drastic difference within a week but my T3 was super low to begin with. My dose was raised at 3 weeks. Around...

    I ordered cynomel from that site also... I got it in about 3 weeks. :)

    Sounds like the adadptogens ended up making your cortisol too low then. Is that what you think?

    As a thyroid patient...

    Yeah, I hear it can make you have vivid dreams. I'm antsy about trying it. :D Did you find a doc to prescribe it or did you order online? I'm most likely going to order online myself as I've yet to...

    By adrenal fatigue, do you mean high cortisol?...

    By adrenal fatigue, do you mean high cortisol? The adaptogen herbs are only good for lowering cortisol and can do harm if you already have low cortisol. Did any of your practitioners have you take a...

    Hi Paleomom, Hi Yogabare!

    Paleomom, You need to be on T3 or NDT. Will your doctor prescribe it to you? If not, find a new doctor. :) My T3 levels have been as low as 1.3 with ranges same as yours....

    Welcome to MDA! :) I have type 1 diabetes. What a coincidence... I've also had it for 28 years.

    It really depends as everyone is different. I tried VLC but it did not work for me, my blood sugars...

    Thanks for all the replies! I've looked at some countertop reverse osmosis filters. I'm not sure what I'm going to do yet. Berkey is another brand I've heard of but I came across reviews talking...

    I gained 5 lbs in 4 months. That may not sound like much but my calories had not changed or exercise. I had tried VLC for a little while and that did me in. The kicker is that I gained another 5...
