DIAGNOSED UNDERACTIVE THYROID PRODUCTION? BE YOUR OWN HEALTH ADVOCATE
I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism (Low Thyroid Production) with a TSH blood screening test after sharing a long list of symptoms with my primary care physician. These Symptoms of Hypothyroidism were silently looming, accumulating, until they finally got my attention mostly from sleep deprivation (Insomnia). Only then was I concerned enough to talk to my doctor about ALL the symptoms (complaints) that I had on my list. Since I have been physically active and healthy throughout my life, when making a list of ailments I felt like a complainer. Please, don’t let this feeling stop you from seeking a doctor to discuss your concerns. No one knows your body like you. Be your own advocate and trust yourself. Your health depends on it. If the first doctor does not listen to you; find one that will. Your Thyroid production and proper conversion of T4 hormone is essential to every cell in your body. Get to the bottom of your individual condition and your personal treatment method. Dr Krupka explains in great detail what you need to know in the video.

LEVOTHYROXINE ON A DAILY BASIS
My doctor ordered a prescription dose of Levothyroxine on a daily basis. For the first time, I have to take prescriptions meds daily, which I do so grudgingly. Though, I wish to follow my doctor’s advice,I continue to seek additional knowledge as I truly believe in finding the underlying cause of these symptoms. Even though I take this medication and my TSH reads normal I still have all of the symptoms. I constantly wake up during the night causing fatigue, brain fog and a general sense of lethargy. Fatigue is a daily battle for me. Though I push through, it takes its toll on my body and mind. I take vitamins with little to no effect. I go to bed early and want to sleep late. I am a caffeine addict to regain the energy I lost. Starbucks has become my best friend. I used to take Ibuprophen daily though I will say, my achiness has subsided somewhat. The scale still reads about fifteen pounds heavier. My skin is still dry, nails still brittle etc. etc. I was also diagnosed with low vitamin B12. So far I have no linkage, though I do believe it has something to do with Hypothyroidism.
