Question: Do you know think it is okay to get 5000iu of palmitate vit a
and take clo with 14-24% real vitamin a?
finishing off other things I have. Not taking a prenatal this time.
Also love to hear these thryroid therapies you are doing...I have two friends with underactive thyroids and pregnant going to pass along the info.
Well, I started reading about it after my OB called me. I was seeing one of the two OB's who practice together, a woman, and she actually called to tell me before she left work one night that my test came back with high levels. No wonder I felt so bad! So she wanted to put me on a natural thyroid. I told her I would look into it first. Then I found that lots of pregnancy problems are really associated with low thyroid. And apparently it is common in subsequent pregnancies to have thyroid issues! I felt like the light had been turned on. It is really important for the babies brain to fix your thyroid as well, which is what got me.
My remedy now is somewhat experimental. I figure taking the brown seaweed in fucothin can only help, kelp is good for iodine, vitamin D is good, CLO is good, bee pollen, coconut oil, liver, raw thyroid.... I am sure it can't fail and if anything I'll feel better all over. I guess I have finally, after the third child, realized the importance of truly taking care of myself
