Lynne I cannot help you unless you reply to my questions..
my tsh was 95 when it was really low in January, think it is about 5 know, doctors put everything back on my thyroid, no I haven't worked with anyone. sorry I have not done anything like this before.
I am here
wow that is a high TSH
well where do you live in new zealand?
What happens when you take thyroid supplements.
I am hypothyroid too- so I understand how you feel
get back to me
I live in christchurch, when i take it ifeel really strange in the head, then my lungs get sore, and my asthma and breathing get worse
well, I would consider a practitioner who is well versed in alternative treatment and bioidentical hormones
There is one in CC
Dr. Sue Levin
275 Fifield Tce Opawa Christchurch
the difference between these practitioners is that they look at the patient as a whole essential being as opposed to just treating the thyroid (which does work for some, but not for all)
She is a medical doctor and a naturopath
which is a rare and very fortunate combination
yes i have in the last few days been told of her, but can not get to see her for four weeks, i thought i could get some other input in the mean time Thanks
hmm. Well, try to see if you can call first thing monday and get in. I cannot prescribe or compound these hormones for you from this website.
At least you have heard from another practitioner that this is the right way to go!
I hope that I was able to provide you with excellent service? :-)/
are you there
Did I provide you with excellent service? :-)?
would you mind rating this service?
