Hi, I friendly Paleohacker (Bill) pointed out to me that a TSH level of 2.5 was on the high side. I dont have the T3 or T4 numbers. My testosterone also was low at the time of the thyroid test. I have since raised my testosterone up to normal levels but I still feel tired often, get cold when I sleep and in general dont feel as great as I should. What really makes me curious is that I feel MUCH better on autoimmune Paleo but not so great when I go to regular Paleo let alone SAD. Ive never been diagnosed with an autoimmune disorder but I know that hashimotos is an autoimmune disease.
I work for a startup so I dont have full insurance at this point so I cant just go out and get a battery of tests. Is a TSH level of 2.5 something I should worry about or should I just stick to autoimmune Paleo, some selenium and call it a day? How about iodine/or sea kelp?
A doc who looked at my nasal passages and back of throat told me that I might have a light case of sleep apnea so that could also be a cause of my lethargy.
Any help/insight is greatly appreciated.
