I have subclinical Hashis. This means my thyroid function looks normal in my labs, and my inflammation is considered low. Meanwhile, I feel very ill most of the time: fatigue, weight gain, exercise intolerance, etc. I was gluten, dairy-free for years. It doesn't have substantial positive effects on me. Anyone else here with similar issues? Any advice?

      You just described me. My dr said she refuses to look at #’s. She does physical scans in her office. All of my #’s come out normal all of the time but she can physically see that it is very slow.

      I went through the up and downs too. Now I’m more hypothyroidism. If I were you, I’d find a good functional MD who can help you find a way to lessen your inflammation. Low dose naltrexone and healing stomach lining/leaky gut are two methods that have helped me in the past.

      Hey thanks for the pep talk. Haven’t done saliva for hormones you mentioned. Sounds good- What company is it? I have had food, etc sensitivity test and sticking to that without much improvement.

      I have Hashimotos as shown on bloodwork and the same problem with exercise and diet doesn’t seem to help but I lose weight instead. Anyone found some extra help besides all he info out there, books by specialists, etc? I’m looking for long term improvement not the up and down I’m having.

      Oh I also see a functional doctor! I’m sorry yours hasn’t been too helpful, definitely try to find someone else if you can. I went through two until I found one who listened and had a whole game plan ready to go. I went the conventional route too before finding my functional doctor and had zero success. Multiple doctors wouldn’t test me for anything (even Hashi’s with a family history and symptoms 🙃) put me on anxiety meds, and told me it was all in my head 😅 not that every conventional doctor does that, but i tried multiple and it was rough. I guess what I’m trying to say is definitely keep hope and don’t be afraid to try new doctors! Advocating for yourself in the medical field is so difficult but critical. You can do it I know it!! 💜

      Hi! Thanks for commenting! It’s been a few years since I’ve done a hormone test or allergy test. I guess I should retest. I’m one of those super sensitive people so I already avoid many foods. I have a functional doctor. She’s a sweetheart, but hasn’t put together a helpful treatment for me. I’ve been sick a long time now…I feel I’ve tried everything I can on my own at this point. I think I’m going to get really proactive again to find professional help!

      I’m in a similar boat! I have Stage 2 Hashi’s, so not quite there yet but I have non-zero TPO. I recently found out my tiredness and feeling sick was from SIBO & leaky gut (which are apparently not uncommon with Hashi’s!). Also, turns out my cortisol, estrogen, and progesterone levels are too low and my adrenals aren’t working right, which are the reason for my exercise intolerance and being tired when waking up. Have you had your hormones and cortisol levels checked with a saliva test? I had mine checked by blood, and it came back “normal”. Then checked with saliva (the more accurate route) and I was very low on everything. Personally I’m keeping on the dairy and gluten free diet. Have you been checked for other food intolerances or allergies? I also recently had that done and it came back with a whole bunch of stuff that I wasn’t tolerating (hence the leaky gut). I know it’s hard but you can do it!! 💜
