Thyroid/supplement update

I am up to 2 capsules per day of the desiccated thyroid and on one adrenal tablet. I am continuing on the other supplements, started about 5 weeks ago. My basal temp is usually around 96.5 this time during my cycle. This am it was 97.37. That is really high for me. I wish I would have stuck to my gut feeling I had a year and a half ago. Low temps, losing hair, can't lose weight...I would get some blood work done but our insurance pays horrible on labs. Last January, my estrogen was low. I hope this thyroid discovery helps regulate the estrogen and progesterone levels. I thank God I am on the right path to health. I hope maybe the thyroid/fertility connection is brought to light more by the medical community. It took me so long to get here.

I'm so glad it's working! I hope this helps your estrogen levels, too!

I know several women who face the thyroid/fertility journey with ill equiped doctors. But it looks like more people are making the connection. Many prayers, my dear!

Oh, I wonder if that is my problem, thyroid...is the dessicated thyroid tablet a Rx? Many prayers for you and your doctors.
