In Topic: Thyroid Medication?

04 April 2015 - 08:06 AM

Hi, sorry also that you have to go through this. I had a total thyroidectomy over 3 yrs ago now.

At first i started off on low dose then raised it gradually. I was on tablet form levothyroxine and tried different makes, most of which made me feel like my throat was closing up (a very scary experience). I must've been allergic to an ingredient but I'm still not sure what. I was eventually put on Levothyroxine oral solution (I'm in the UK and this is about £80 a bottle so my gp wasn't happy). I feel fine but agree with nvsmom and would've much preferred to use the natural form but unfortunately I can only get it off ebay which makes me nervous of quality and dosage. Hope all goes well

In Topic: Dq8

Hi, I have the DQ8 gene and was diagnosed with celiac disease 2 years ago. In fact blurred vision and anemia has been my worse symptoms along with achey arms, bloating and dh.

Edit: Oh and brainfog...I forgot that one☺

In Topic: 5Yr Old And Vision Problems

Hi Bridee, I still suffer with blurry vision after being gluten-free for nearly 2 yrs which maybe because I'm still not absorbing iron (it should take a child hopefully less time to heal). I have to take iron supplements.

I also wonder sometimes if im not healing quicker as I think the only gluten which maybe creeping into my diet is barley from cereals which are on the "allowed gluten-free list" in the UK due to having tiny amounts. I'm not convinced they should be allowed!

Good luck

Would love to try them as I've been looking for gluten-free veggie burgers and sausages for a while now. They look nice but I've not seen them in any mainstrream UK supermarkets as yet :(

I find peppermint tea really helps.
