I agree to what @justy says.I think what Im trying to ask is, don't you think that there must be something in armour that you need? That righting the thyroid could be the biggest step for healing.
Thanks Justy. I should have just bought the quarter grain ones and then I could have easily cut it into half or quarter. I can take a crumb but I like being precise.
Do you think the crash was directly related to taking the armour? It seems strange (but then we are aren't we!) that you should feel so good and then crash so suddenly.
Do you not feel that if you'd kept at a very low dose you may not have crashed? I know that contradicts what you have just said.
I am scared to take it but I still have hashimotos despite trying all sorts of other things. There is DHEA, armour and LDN once more to try. I think the LDN will cause akathisia again which Im not willing to tolerate or push through and I do dreadfully on hormones so I have little hope for DHEA...but one must try.
When you crashed was it a different ME crash? Did it feel more hormonal? Did it effect your mental health (anxiety, depression etc)
Good that your antibodies decreased that much from elimination of gluten. I would try too, together with a doctor, to find out how to stabilize and minimize the autoimmune attack on the thyroid.My TSH was 11 (one week later it was 2) and T4 always hovers around 11 too. My antibodies were in the 300 range but dramatically dropped after quitting gluten.
Putting on weight could as you probably know be due to hypothyroidismIve put on half a stone which seems most unusual.
