I received a test in may of this year showing me as hyperthyroid, not sure why it is that way, hypothyroidism runs in my family and I was hypo in 2011 or so. Maybe it has to do with the meds my doc had me on, a year before the test result showing hyper I had a test showing my thyroid to be normal but I also had a test showing my iodine to be somewhat low so my doc put me on a large bottle of iodine, I must have supplemented iodine daily for something like half a year. I also took methylation supplements for a year and a half leading up to the test if that means anything. Not sure if I have any symptoms of hyperthyroidism or not, my pulse has been a lot more noticeable but that may just be me noticing it. what do I do if I still have hyperthyroidism when this test I'm going to take in the next few days comes back. I have heard the standard mainstream medicine thing to do is to take a med that destroys part of your thyroid and from then on you have to take thyroid supplements for the rest of your life. does anyone know of a way around that?
