I finally got in to see a new specialist today! WOOT! I was super impressed, and found him off the sticky of how to find a good thryoid doctor. He is super knowledgeable about thyroid stuff, and pretty much everything he said jived with all of my research that I have been doing for two years. They do not have a lab there, so I will have to go do bloodwork elsewhere, so I don't know my levels yet. If I had to guess, I would say they are WAY off, judging by the way I feel, and coupled with the fact that it's been 6+ months since the last round at my old doctor's office. He's putting me on Selenium, a Bcomplex vitamin, and Vitamin D (to be taken with fish oil capsules for better absorption). I have heard of taking all of these, but I was leary of trying to figure out the amounts and combinations of vitamins/minerals myself. My old doctor was not interested in that stuff at all. Bottom line is, I believe this new doctor is interested in figuring out the auto-immune side of my problems. He's going to more closely monitor the anti-bodies, where in the past, my old doc just checked for the presence of them and that was it. So, I just want to encourage anyone that is strugging to keep trying and don't give up! Keep looking for answers and don't settle with feeling blah. It WILL get better, sometimes it's just a process - journey, if you will - rather than a quick fix.
YAY!!!!!!! How exciting!! Selenium worked wonderfully to bring down my TPO levels, so I highly recommend it. I can't take it anymore due to the fact that selenium can cause higher blood sugar levels and I certainly don't need my IR aggravated! Figures huh? KUP on what your levels are.
