Hello! New user here! So I'm not actually dealing with full blown hypothyroidism, I am supposedly only in the pre-hypo range. But I do have nodules on my thyroid and some days I really do clock all the symptoms. Is there anything I can do while they won't give me medication to help alleviate some of this drastic fatigue? It's honestly driving me crazy lol

      Try vitamin d and b12. My energy didn’t really start to come back until my vitamin d and b12 levels were normal and they don’t require a prescription to get.

      Hey there. My numbers began just a little off and within a few years they became very outside the normal range. The fatigue is aweful and the thyroid can really affect mental health too. So I take Levothyroxine which is your T4 hormone. And I take a natural supplement called Thyrocare that supports T4 to T3 conversion. I highly recommend either one depending on what your T4 and T3 levels are. Eating healthy and being physically active can drastically improve thyroid function. I'm overweight and I love fast food, so I'm just starting to improve those things. If you search online for Dr. Josh Axe, he has food advice for thyroid support. Gluten is commonly known to worsen thyroid dysfunctions, as well as some vegetables like Kale. And Dr. Mark Hyman created a diet called the Pegan Diet that I am transitioning into. It's founded on eating healthy food that is medicinal and not harmful. I hope you find relief for your symptoms!
