    Hypothyroid

    Please Help! I was diagnosed approximately six years ago with hypothyroidism after many years of suffering from the typical symptoms. Initially, I was prescribed levelthyroxine, but still suffered the typical symptoms, but on a minor scale. Dr tried me on Synthroid which symptoms improved though I still experienced my chemistry as a whole can easily be thrown off with wrong diet, blood sugar drops out very easily, mood swings and irritability. I'm back on the generic. If I clean out my digestive tract I feel great, simply eating majority of any food groups returns symptoms. I guess frustrating as it is, the real question I have is being boarder line diagnosed with 0.088mg r/x then why is my chemistry so sensitive!?


    Any help would be greatly appreciated!
