If that helps with Hypothyroid, would it bad for me to eat so much selenium if I am Hyperthyroid? I noticed I eat a loooooooot of selenium rich foods. More than 200% the RDA.1. get at least 200 mcg selenium day
Really? When there are antibodies, it's Hashimotos? I did have antibodies, but my diagnosis was Grave's disease.Also, did they check you for thyroid antibodies? That would indicate Hashimoto's which you need to treat differently. And reverse T3, which could tell you if you're converting your T4 to RT3 instead of T3... which is a different issue as well.
Oh, if it matters: after one month of 40mg Methimazole:
Thanks in advance.Code:TSH < 0.02 (L) RANGE: 0.27-4.20 UIU/ML Free T4 0.95 RANGE: 0.90-1.70 NG/DL T3 Total 161.7 RANGE: 80 - 200 NG/DL TSI 3 (H) RANGE: <= 1.3 TSI Index

FINALLY I found someone who knows what the hell they are doing, after multiple attempts over the years to get this thyroid thing straightened out ("Your TSH is normal. You are not hypothyroid." -- GAH!)
My naturopath put me on selenium, and it's working great. It was as simple as that (for me). I have eyebrows now! WooT!
