Yeah when I went to my doctor it was 97.2 degrees. So I definitely have thyroid issues. All my thyroid readings were fine expect RT3 was off the chart which causes the rest of the thyroid to not get absorbed.
Man, that is a lot of money to get your rt3 checked! Its tough, I am not really trying to say "this is the way" to anybody about how to treat adrenal fatigue and thyroid problems because my doctor has not fixed me at all yet. I was just given my protocol on Friday and I just got everything I need today. My protocol is low dose naltrexone to decrease the inflammatory signaling which my doctor thinks is the biggest cause of elevated rt3. Low dose naltrexone is an immune system modulatory that cancer, AIDS, and ms patients use. It sounds like it could do good things for me, I hope it will. We will see.
He took me off of celexa and started me on a VERY low dose of amitriptyline 10mg, as well as 12.5-25 mg seroquel. Both of these are mostly to knock me out at night, they are really low dosages. I have yet to take them because I just got them today. He gave me armour thyroid to take as well.
So yeah, I can't really give advice on what to do to anyone except all the nutritional things that I am learning, mostly just make sure that one has proper iodine, vitamin a, vitamin e, iron (necessary for thyroid signaling), vitamin b12, b complex, vitamin d3 in their bodies. Also, I eat 2-3 kiwis a day as per Hver's advice and I notice a difference, definitely. Natural sources of vitamin C are definitely important.
