Trevor, I'm sorry to hear that, but look on the bright side. I too am feeling tired, low energy, irritable, depressed, nervous, jumpy with an astounding inability to concentrate on one thing at a time. But no one offers me meds that might make me feel better.  Bluesad

Sending you hugs: that should help a little.  Smile

Trevor, one of the best things for your thyroid, especially an under-active one, is to incorporate iodine into your diet. Probably the best natural source of that is kelp, which you should be able to find in powdered form in stores near you, and just sprinkle that onto your food. (Except for being a little salty it is fairly flavor-neutral.)

Nori, the black sheets used to wrap sushi, is kelp and contains 70% of the RDA of iodine per serving. Other good sources are deep water fish like cod and tuna, potatoes, many beans, milk, and eggs.

Probably the overall best way to bring some rapidly utilizable iodine into your diet is to order a product known as Lugol's solution. By adding three drops of 5% solution into eight ounces of water, you get twenty mg of iodine, which is absolutely beneficial to thyroid function. A bottle of Lugal's solution costs about $20.00 US online and is enough to last several months. In Japan people have been using Lugol's solution in vast numbers since the Fukushima disaster, and doctors there are encouraged at how well the populace has been able to handle exposure to radiation while maintaining healthy thyroid function.

Just some thoughts. I hope they help, and good luck kicking the hell out of feeling bad.

Hugs and thanks  Smile

Your condition is very treatable.  Be glad it was discovered and the symptoms you've experienced led to the discovery.  I know you're going to feel much better soon.  Keep well. 

Thanks Brother AHD  Smile

Trevor, my friend, I am on thyroid meds as well. It sounds depressing, but it is one of those things that I take every day without even thinking about it. If I don't take them for a few days, I definitely feel the impact.

Not trying to add to your worries, but low to no thyroid activity will cause weight gain, which will ultimately result in more health issues. The upside is that you can start eating more meats and dense veggies that are slow to process in the system. Downside, you will want to seriously restrict your carb intake (sugars, breads, pastas, cakes, alcohol). But to be honest, most carbs from those sources are NOT healthy for you to begin with.

It isn't the end of the world, brother. Just another thing that happens. You aren't alone, either. Welcome to the crappy thyroid club, Trev!   Cheers

Thanks BrotherJ  Smile

Best wishes, Trevor.  The bright side is that they were able to make a diagnosis and offer a medication to treat it.  Hopefully you will notice a big difference in how you feel after using the medication for a while.  And don't forget to tell the doctor if you have any strange side effects after starting the medication!

Thanks, Brother Andrew. I'd been feeling off for a long time and I thought it was just me going through an early change of life, but it wasn't. I feel a bit better knowing that everything else is OK, though.  TeddyR

No, no side effects to speak of: it's just these damn pink elephants and weird colors that bother me. I think I'm  seeing now what Peter Fonda saw in The Trip.   Wink TeddyR

If it's true what they say, that GOD created us in His image, then why should we not love creating, and why should we not continue to do so, as carefully and ethically as we can, on whatever scale we're capable of?

     The choice is simple; refuse to create, and refuse to grow, or build, with care and love.

As someone who is on meds for blood pressure and Diabetes,I sympathize whole heartedly. Thank goodness they spotted it early enough to begin treatment. Pretty soon those pills become just another part of the routine. Take care of yourself and know that lots of warm affection is coming your way from Texas.

Take care Trevor.  At just about your age I found out I have Type II diabetes.  Not a big deal because if I control your weight, eat right, and get enough exercise, I need to take little or no medication.  But within about a month of finding out I had diabetes, I had a minor heart attack.  Then last year at age 49 I found out I have colitis.  I take about 10 pills every day now for one ailment or another.  Don't let this happen to you, my friend!
