Considering taking Thyroid Support-Quantum a Premier Concerned about any supplemental Iodine
because of Dr. Datis Kharrazian belief that Iodine
and tyrosine can trigger Hashimoto’s.
I was diagnosed with hypothyroid in 2003 and was tested years ago not to have antibodies for Hashimoto's but I really need to be rechecked. My conventional endo at the time still thought Hashimoto's was the cause of my hypothyroidism. I was tested with both urine and blood to be low in Iodine
but most all the conventional and alternative doctors I see have been leery to prescribe Iodine. I have been on Armour, Synthroid with Armour was out of stock and Nature-Throid and for the last year WP Thyroid. Concerned about the fillers in the lot of them.
I am thought to be insulin resistant, have tested high C-RP (and also Homocysteine) for the the last 10 years so am concerned with having high inflammation. I have 4 root canaled teeth (all uppers lost two of the 6 total within the last few years plus have one bottom tooth that is thought to be dead by the fifth and best an alternative dentist, Blanche D. Grube, I counseled with. She thinks I need to pull the lot of them. Tough decision to try and make. Especially when I feel so bad. I have multiple food sensitivities
, Gluten, Nightshades, Caffeine, Histamine, FODMAPS and am now suffering intermittent abdominal pain with Silent Acid Reflux and very painful throat burn. I've been to Integrative medicine doctors, a Homeopathic MD, Chiropractors, Physical Therapists, an integrative neurologist, conventional/allopathic doctors, a metabolic nutritionist who also did 23andMe gene testing and consulting, recently a DO and 'no surprise' tomorrow I am to see a Integrative Psychiatrist.
How did I get here years of sugar, weight, immobility, Cancer in 2009, blood clot following with a passel of life stressors.
Had an ulcer in 2010/11 That I healed with a supplement protocol but it took one year to diagnose and six months to heal. I was in good shape until Dec 2013 when I started having gawing abdominal pain that I thought was an ulcer again only same protocols minus the 3 rounds of Prilosec OTC have not worked.
Only bright spot is my faith in God continues and has grown and I know He loves me and has a plan for all my suffering.
I am sorry I got off track from the IODINE/thyroid issue....
to me physically it's a whole package of a Hot mess.
