Update on Thyroid
Sunday, March 13, 2016
It has been a bit since i have posted. Here is an update on my wellness journey.
I have reverse T3 which means my thyroid is not converting t4 (the storage thyroid hormone) into t3 the active one I need. That is why I am hypo.
I also have adrenal fatigue (low cortisol in the day and high at night). This is what leads to my inflammation and also part of my fatigue and also part of my poor sleep. It is also one of the causes of my RT3 issue above.
I always have high ferritin which means high inflammation throughout my body. I will get a new blood test this week for that to see if improving.
I am on t3 only meds as well as lowered NDT
I am on Adrenal Cortex in the day and Holy Basil at night for my Adrenal issues
I am on a myriad of other supplements throughout the day.
I am starting to improve 1%, it takes time but at least now I know the issues so I can begin on my path.
I still have tons of hypo symptoms but in time I will be good again.
