Check out this video on youtube about your low thyroid. 90% of woman diagnosed with hypothyroidism have an autoimmune condition called Hashimoto’s thyroiditis. You need to have your blood tested for antibodies against your thyroid because treating your low thyroid with just thyroid medications will never address the real problem of autoimmunity. You must dampen the immune response or it will continue to attack the thyroid gland and possibly other tissue. Two things that must be avoided by hypothyroid patients are iodine supplements and gluten. Iodine is like throwing gasoline on a fire when it comes to autoimmune thyroid conditions and gluten will also heighten the immune response against your thyroid. Most doctors will only try to get your TSH and T4 levels normal while ignoring the cause of the problem which is the autoimmune response.
