TL-I wish my TSH was that low! I've been on a grain of Armour for almost 10 years, but since my level is 5.0, and the range on the test is .5-5.5, I'm 'normal'.
: Heaven forbid you look at symptoms that are still occuring, but anyhoo-here's what I've learned...
If you're considering tyrosine, DO IT! It's the best thing! I was taking adderall which helped with the brain fog from being hypo (yeah, give me speed instead of adjustng my armour. Smart! again-
: ) Anyhow, had to lay off the adderall when I got pg last Jan and the tyrosine helps nearly as much!
Coconut oil is excellent, esp when used to make fried taters. mmmmmmm.
I take a tbsp a day unless I cook w/ it, not a fan of the taste except in cooking. Cuts cravings and curbs appetite, if you take 1/2 hour before you eat...
Iodoral is a life saver...second that. Saturated fats (animal, etc.) help you absorb minerals.
A & D are only toxic if taken separately and if you take the synthetic forms.
Cod liver oil-not my fave-but it makes a huge, huge difference in energy levels. Amazingly so. I take 4 tablespoons-yes tablespoons-in a glass of oj every am-stir it up and chug it down and you don't taste it.
Check to see if you ahve a food intolerance that is causes general inflammation in your bod-dairy, wheat, nuts, soy esp-it's a huge goitregen-anything you crave is suspect. Go off it for two weeks, then try it. I did that w/ milk and I was sick for two days.
Thats all I know..and I can prove it...
I didn't know about selenium-it's a cancer fighter too. Good to know.
