    1. KrissyG added a post in a topic Tell Me About Hypothyroid   

      I actually have also been having very weird symptoms for the last year and have been to many drs including neurologists. Each time I would see a new doctor I would be asked about thyroid although every time my blood was tested it would come back normal (I was tested 3 times in the past year and a half by various doctors). I found a nearby integrative MD who did a urine test for hypothyroidism. He told me that the blood tests are not very accurate - maybe only for the more advanced cases but I'm not sure. The urine test came back positive for very low thyroid. He put me on meds and I definitely feel better - still not great b/c I think I need to go gluten-free but am not wanting to. My blood tests for celiac came back normal but I'm still considering the Enterolab test. Anyway, I think the lab that does the urine test is Vitamin Diagnostics in Cliffwood Beach, New Jersey. My insurance wouldn't pay for it and it was about $100. I know how frustrating it can be to not have answers and having doctors think it's all in your head. I was put on antidepressants b/c they thought all my problems were anxiety related .

      I really hope this helps!
