Thanks for the link.
There are a lot of theories about thyroid problems. One is that they start in the gut and that's what you treat first, with the autoimmune protocol diet, etc.
I've been looking at my vitamin D, copper-zinc, selenium-iodine, and iron levels, too, and supplementing accordingly. (I still can't find any clarity about iodine supplementation.)
Is there an iron supplement that comes as liquid drops? Seems like a lot of people with stomach issues try liquid forms of vitamins and minerals.
Ok, now that I am looking at the messsage board again it seems that it's not getting as much traffic as it used to, I see a lot of questions going unanswered. Sorry about that, guys. It still might be worth it to post your questions. I was going there more in 2013 and they were very helpful. If I find another good forum I'll post the link.
I definitely need to read up more about the link between thyroid issues and the gut. Autoimmune diseases run in my family, but my tests have come up negative so far.
In the last few years I've found I'm pretty sensitive to some supplements (like many people in WD.) In 2013 my Vit D was at 13, but any time I tried to take Vit D supplements I'd get anxiety and insomnia. I even tried the liquid Vit D drops for children and still had issues. This year I decided to try again and lo and behold no issues! Whereas before I couldn't tolerate 200iu, now I could tolerate 3,000iu a day and my sleep was fine. I got tested a few weeks after supplementing and my Vit D was at 28. Now that my levels are finally up I have noticed a big improvement in my fatigue. I find it very interesting that some sensitivities can improve despite still being in WD.
As for iron, I know there is a liquid one that is very popular, Floradix. Unfortunately for me, it's full of lots of other stuff including a high level of B vitamins and I'm still sensitive to those.
