Okay, so I am following a low carb paleo diet. And I recently had some heart rate issues, that turned out to in fact be hyperthyroid in nature.
So far as that is concerned, I am waiting six weeks with reduced iodine in my diet (was high, lots iodised salt, heaps of eggs, cheese, seafood etc) to see if it settles down, and to also check then if its autoimmune (only really peaked up with high iodine in the diet).
So sadly, I am ATM trying to deal with this with diet etc alone (hyperthyroid sucks!). Although I am going to check soon and see if I can get some beta blockers or something to calm me and my heartrate down in the meantime.
So, I am basically wondering if anyone else on paleohackers is hyperthyroid, and if they have any useful tips for me? Any advice would be much appreciated.
Switching my breakfast this week to stew and some occasional nut cereals w/ almond milk, is one adjustment. Cant seem to do even small amounts of exercise without my heartrate taking a long time to settle back down. Whole thing is blargh...
