How To Relieve Constipation Problems Due To Hashimotos Disease
I have Hashimoto's. What are some good supplements To take to help with some of the symptoms like fatigue , slow digestion/constipation & weight gain?
Is it possible to have hashimotos and normal T4 T3 (liothyronine) and TSH levels? Fatigued, freezing always, hair falling out, constipation 20 lb weight gain.
Probably not: Discuss your thoughts w/ the doctor who ordered the tests and got the results. It id not likely that these would be normal if you have that condition. T4 would be likely to be low and TSH high to compensate - but get a good explanation from the Dr along w/ alternative possibilities. Drink water, eat fruit/veggie based diet, exercise properly and rest/sleep well while you search for cause. Best! ...Read more

I have had hashimotos disease for almost 20 years. I have been treated since diagnosis and I have feeling great on my current dose of 137mcg of synthroid.
Problem is.... I started to see infertility specialist who wants to alter my current rx.
Levels?: You don't give levels, but it looks like your question got cut off. All i can say is the correct dosing should put you in a normal range based on blood testing; ironically, many folk feel better when overdosed because they feel they have more energy. Being over corrected (based on blood) is ultimately harmful though, so keep that in mind. ...Read more
I am having shortness of breath with standing or sitting. Relieved about 30 mins after lying down. Only health problem is hashimotos. On armour.
Total thyroidectomy more than a year ago due to hashimotos disease. How long could I live without taking my thyroxine 150mcg?
Does not add up: Hashimoto is not a reason for thyroidectomy. Why would you not not take replacement medication? You may live for a variable length of time but would not be healthy. Stay on the medication and do not change the dose without consulting your doctor. ...Read more

Thyroid hormone/life: Hypothyroidism caused by hashimoto's thyroiditis is treated with thyroid hormone replacement agents like levothyroxine or desiccated thyroid extract.
