Hypothyroidism

Cher0208 - September 16

Hello all,

So I had my follow up with the Fibro Specialist after having tons of blood work done two weeks ago. She says I have Hypothyrodism. My TSH was 6.45. She gave me a prescription for Synthroid. I had to sign a paper that explained the very scary side effects. My boss from a few jobs ago had Fibro and Thyroid problems - so I hear it is common. Does anyone else on here have it and if so what are you taking? Anyone able to deal with this naturally? I called my Dad today to update him on my situation and I was blown away to hear that he has had Hypothyrodism for ten years and has been on Synthroid which he says helps. This is the first I heard of this. Wish my family would be more open about their health problems. Not sure if this could have been passed down or not. Also wondering what the chances are that this is what is causing all of my symptoms or if this is a side effect of whatever the real problem may be. I suspect I also have Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome which is means I would have high testosterone. If I find a decent GYN that confirms this then it might be safe to say that the high testosterone caused a thyroid problem?

Doctor also says I probably have Candida and wants to start treating me for it through diet, a supplement and unfortunately a months worth of Diflucan. The thing with Diflucan is it creates holes in your brain. Its an anti fungal drug and your brain is made up of fungus or so I heard about in a recent podcast about the thyroid.

I am conflicted about this because I'm afraid of taking a synthetic hormone. And I definitely don't want to take an oral anti fungal medication for a whole month!!!

She said my Vitamin D is on the low end so I have to start supplementing on that. Everything else was ok. No diabetes or insulin resistance. Iron was high actually, she said if that doesn't look normal again when I go for blood then she will refer me to a hematologist.

Any input is always greatly appreciated! Thanks guys. Hope everyone is doing well.
