I am 33 and at a loss with my health. I just had my thyroid…

Customer Question
Hello, I am 33...

Hello, I am 33 and at a loss with my health. I just had my thyroid checked. My THS is 1.85 and my free T4 is .98. Current symptoms are always tired, gained weight over the last 2 months with no changes to diet (my clothes don't fit stuff that was fitting in January don't fit now), My depression and anxiety have been worse. Hot flashes and night sweats. When my doctor called to give me the results she said all is good just try going vegan. I am tired of feeling like crap. Any idea of where to go from here would be great.

Doctor's Assistant: Any recent weight loss/gain? Are you excessively thirsty?

Weight gain. Not not realy excessively thirsty but have been drink more

Doctor's Assistant: Anything else in your medical history you think the doctor should know?

I am on a gluten free diet for celiacs.

Hi... I have gone through all the tests you have uploaded. I thank you for getting back with the requested necessary information.From detailed symptom analysis and also keeping in mind the labs which you have uploaded (which are very much normal), I feel that you are not having any major problem or major health concern.You need to cut down on non vegetarian diet and increase high fibre diet and vegetarian diet more. I suggest that you are already doing good amount of exercise and please keep it up.
Avoid carbonated beverages.
As your Vitamin D been low, if you have not been treated for this, I suggest that you take vitamin D 60000 International units once per week (preferably on a Sunday for easy remembrance) for 8 weeks consistently. Vitamin D is a very good immunomodulating agent and you would be surprised that many of your symptoms might settle with single magic drug supplement.All the non specific pain symptoms which you are having and especially the tiredness maybe in itself be because of vitamin D deficiency state."
