Customer Question

in 2006 according to my GP, I had low thyroid function. Upon a recent blood test, he
claimed it is now hardly functioning and my brain is working overtime to compensate
and he said something about how this is also affecting my cholestral (spelling?) level.

I started taking the standard thyroxine pills (50mcg) 3 months ago, but I was somewhat
alarmed when I had a sleepy-can't move-freezing bout I used to have periodically over
the years, once more. I could hardly move about and felt not better at all. So I have
come off them, but I need to take more than good food and exercise, I suspect.

Is there a natural build up cure?

Dr. David :

you need your TSH levels checked again.

JACUSTOMER-2szxf8dd- :

same pills?

Dr. David :

you need more testing to know your condition exactly.

Dr. David :

the thyroxine dose might not have been the correct dose for you.

Dr. David :

there are ways to treat your thyroid and symptoms if properly diagnosed.

Dr. David :

I would recommend that you see an endocrinology specialist to get proper testing and evaluation of your thyroid condition.
