Hi! I just got diagnosed and my biggest struggle is energy levels. I’m really struggling waking up and getting out of bed in the morning along with completely tasks throughout the day. Does anyone have any advice. I constantly feel like I just ran a marathon

      Mornings are SO HARD!!!! I’ve always had trouble getting up but lately, what’s been helping me a little is waking up in phases. I have an alarm at 6:00 am to take my thyroid meds and birth control, I have a 2nd alarm for 7, I sit up, drink some water, go to the restroom, and lay back down. Then I have my 7:30 alarm, which I labeled “Last call to get up” and that’s when I finally get up to get ready. Usually, I’ll try to have breakfast or like a “morning snack” while getting ready, and I find that works. Also, drinking 1-2 cups of water and giving myself 45-60 minutes before drinking my 1st cup of coffee also helps!

      A vegan diet helped me the most when I was on it, but cutting fast food & eating more fruits & vegetables helps too.

      We’re there any big dietary changes that you noticed made the biggest impact?

      Adding Liothyronine helped me. Diet is important too.

      Hello! It’s a struggle for sure! When I was recently diagnosed I had the same issue but, just have to wait for the medicine to kick in that takes about 4-8 weeks depending on the person. From there if you still feel this way reach out to your doctor. You may need an adjustment. Hope you feel better soon! 💕
