Sorry, I didn't mean to fear monger! If it's working for you then great! Just when you said you were feeling so tired warning bells went off. If it's just started since JUDD you need to consider whether it might be connected. If it's been going on for a while that's different. Either way, you should monitor it. How long have you been feeling tired for?

Agree you should get your T4 and T3 tested if you already haven't. Different docs believe different things are important, so maybe that's why your doc isn't pointing you in that direction.
"I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.
In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."
