Hi all. I have Hashimoto's and have been dabbling in paleo for a few months and doing it strictly for a few weeks.
As I've been cheating less, I've begun to feel a bit worse in a specific way. I have muscle pain in both arms. I had this before when I was trying to get the thyroid drugs worked out and my sense is that I get this odd muscle pain when the thyroid meds (Levoxyl) are too low or when for some reason I'm not metabolizing the meds properly. I went for quite a while without this pain but it has reappeared with a vengeance over the last couple weeks.
So, is there any reason to think that a paleo low-carb diet lowers T4 or T3? If so, why?
Thanks for your help.
