Ursa Major

Temperature Chart

Recommended Posts

I'm too tired to work out sometimes even though I know it will make me feel better in the end. I literally feel like I might fall asleep at teh wheel in the middle fo the day if I were to drive somewhere. I also feel like I have trouble distinguishing between hunger, tiredness, headache, etc and I tend to eat to see if I will feel better. Does anyone else feel like this?

Oh yes ! Armour cured it for me. All based on a Dr that worked with traditional methods like temp charts, and borderline results in blood tests. Good luck!

azmom3, I am not Ursula but - yes - you definately sound Hypo Thyroid. Many Drs don't have a clue when it comes to dx Thyroid. Low Temps are a strong indicator. Basal temp is the temp you take before you get out of bed.Any good thermometer will work. Your Dr needs to test TSH, free T3, free T4, and Antibodies for Hashimotos. A good site to check all the info is www.stopthethyroidmadness.com That tells you all you need to know and they have forums as well to help if you are :unsure: a bit.

Get your test results printed and tell them the results. Lots of people get told 'normal' as the Dr or the lab don't realise the lab ranges for Hypo Thyroid have been changed. And are still under review.

Thanks, Georgie! It's ok that you're not Ursula...you sound just as helpful and nice. :D

Iodone-Skin Patch Test:

1. Purchase an inexpensive 2% solution of Iodine (Lugol's Solution) at any drug store.

2. Paint a 1 to 2 inch square patch of skin with solution, staining the skin brown. You can use the thyroid area or more conveniently, the abdomen, an upper arm or thigh, being carful not to contact any clothing until completely dry to avoid staining. Note the time you apply the iodine.

3. Iodine-deficiency is indicated when the stain is gone in under 24 hrs. This may be linked to hypothyroidism. If the stain lasts 24 hrs. or more, iodine status is normal. This supports normal thyroid function.

This very simple method will not only diagnose the problem, but will get your thyroid functioning again. Repeat this iodine test every three to six months. In the meantime, take supplements with iodine, such as kelp (the highest concentration of iodine known) or eat iodine-rich foods, such as beef liver, turdey, asparagus, white onions and broccoli.

Caution: Don't apply iodine more than once in a twenty-four hour period as you may experience symtoms of iodine overdose: heightened awareness dilated pupils, and a metallic tast in the mouth.

Like I said I don't know anything more on this test but I can ask my husband or you can show this to your doc.

I did this test almost two months ago for my kinesiologist who has been trying to help me via email.

The first splotch I put on disappeared within an hour and a half.

I thought maybe I did it wrong, so I tried again. The second splotch took a little under six hours to disappear.

I'm sure that means nothing to my GP, but to me it is just further proof that my thyroid levels ARE NOT NORMAL! ARgh! :blink::blink::blink:

Time for a new Doc :blink:

Armour, Iodine, check for adrenal fatigue, take temp , make temp graphs, check Ferritin, b12 , celiac

Read stopthethyroidmadness for mistakes patients make re dosing Armour. Do the adrenal self test - its fairly accurate. Temps.

There are Docs that will do this. You just have to find them :)
