I am 62 years old female and have a family history of Hashimotos’s hypothyroiditis. My mother had her thyroid removed. My uncle had MS and my son is a Lymphoma survivor. Huge autoimmune history in my family.
I did Paleo for only three months before I went back to the Dr. for routine blood work.
I have been taking thyroid medication for 7 years. My levels kept getting worse over the years and I had to increase my medication each year.
My TSH levels were reading close to 10. I went from the lowest dose to 100 MCG.
Normal readings are .5 to 5.0
I received a call from the Dr and they said everything looked normal. Red flag.
I went to the office and asked them to look at my records from last test and compare it to the new one,
They said my new reading was 1.0. Completely in the normal range.
If I hadn’t questioned the phone call I can’t imagine how that dose of medicine would have affected me.
Thank you for all you do.
I also lost ten pounds in those three months, so there is hope to loose weight after age 60.
