    Other Hypothyroid causes? plz help
    desbot posted:
    I found out I do not have Hashimoto's, so what could be causing my hypothyroid then? I was diagnosed 2 years ago. I've recently been tested for both antibodies and both came back negative. Should I be concerned about what's causing it to be low? I've tried searching for alternate causes but there is very little information I've been able to find. Are there cases where the cause is simply just unknown?

    I take synthroid, my levels are in "range" but like most people I still have a ton of symptoms.

    Could be anything really but the main thing I would say is vitamin deficiency.

    We live in a toxic environment from what we use, consume and drink. The best way to combat this is flushing toxins out of your system with a detox regiment and exercise. Also make sure you are adding the proper amount of vitamins and nutrients to your diet.

    Vitamin and nutrient deficiency is one of the main causes of this epidemic.[br>
