A recent blood test showed I have a TSH of 6.5! (I've also gained 3 stone in a short space of time and sleep ~12hrs a day) My doctor refuses to treat without another blood test in February (first was in November), with the result being higher or same, and then with T4 only. Nuts to that!
I eat mainly paleo, the non-paleo foods I eat are mainly chocolate, because try as I might I cannot kick my sweet tooth, this may be related to the hypothyroidism. The main foods I eat are lamb, pork, occasional fish and chicken; butter, eggs, coconut oil; veggies like onion, mushroom and broccoli; use 'losalt' and herbs and spices. Also eat small amount of starch from white rice and potatoes (a la perfect health diet, but not as much). Don't eat vegetable oils, grains other than white rice, fruit and rarely eat out or take aways. I practice IF about 18-20 hours a day, but it's not difficult as I'm asleep 12 of those.
I supplement D3 5000IU, chromium 200ug, magnesium 300mg, K2 2mg and iodine 10mg daily.
What foods, herbs, supplements, hacks, etc would help boost my thyroid and/or kick my sweet tooth.
I also suffer from long term depression and feel improving my thyroid will help this. Many drugs have not helped me, neither has 5-HTP, tyrosine, fermented cod liver oil with butter oil and higher doses of magnesium.
