I have a question. I've been reading on here about people curing their hypothyroid. I'm curious about this. Is this for people with diagnosed hypothyroid or symptoms of it? Or is it for non-hashimotos hypothyroid? Or does it work for everyone?
I was diagnosed with hypothyroid back in 2000. Dr actually caught it on a random screening. My TSH was pretty high. I had all of the classic symptoms (tired, dry hair/skin, cold, weight gain, depression etc...) but passed them off as normal for what was happening in life (move with longer commute, recently moved to a dry arid climate, father diagnosed with cancer, etc...) I was started on levothyroid and got my TSH levels down and have been on it ever since.
I don't recall the doctor ever saying it was an autoimmune disease (Hashimotos), but after researching it I found it can be. I always assumed it probably was Hashimotos since I have other diagnosed autoimmune diseases (PCOS, celiac, raynauds) and they like to travel in packs!
If there is a chance that I could get off of thyroid meds, I would love to! But I know how I feel if my thyroid goes low and it is no picnic!
