Thyroid Helper Vitamins
Thyroid levels: You do not supply the normal range for these values, but they all appear to be normal. In most US labs, the normal range of TSH is about 0.4 to 4.0, so that value of 0.99 is normal. ...Read more
B vitamins,Magnesium: Studies show that taking a daily dose of b12, b6 and thiamine boosts metabolism, and reduces fatigue, enhances your mood and even improves digestion.

My TSH levels are 4.67.My prenatal vitamins don't have iodine.Can I take iodine supplements along with levothyroxine?or levothyroxine is sufficient?
Not iodine deficient: Hi. No one in America is iodine deficient. If you're hypothyroid, it's because of autoimmune destruction of the gland (assuming you haven't had thyroid surgery). Giving more iodine when you're already replete will not help. Is that TSH on l-thyroxine? You need a dose increase if it is. Take your l-thyroxine, and don't worry about the iodine. Good luck! ...Read more
Kreb's Cycle: The way our bodies produce energy is through the kreb's cycle. This multistage reaction ultimately produces 36 molecules of energy for every molecule of protein, fatty acid or carbohydrate that enters it. All the b vitamins play a role as co-factors alone or as a team at different stages. So, all the b vitamins can be considered as metabolism boosters, none more important than the other. ...Read more
Would standard process adrenal supplements (drenatrophin pmg and adrenal desiccated) affect labs – cmp, tsh, free t3, (liothyronine) free t4?
Adrenal supplements: 46F asks about lab effects of adrenal supplements on CMP,TSH,FT3 and Free T4. This has likely never been studied as there is no regulation of adrenal supplements & makers can put anything in them until a bunch gets sick & reported to FDA. I would avoid these unless you need to waste money. I would also avoid a Dr who prescribes them. But need more information. Consult with me. ...Read more
My prenatal vits don't have iodine as supplement.I have hashimoto's thyroiditis.I take levothyroxine. Should I also take iodine supplements? How much?
Don't bother: Hi. No one in America is iodine deficient. Then, on top of that, you're hypothyroid! You need a healthy, functioning thyroid gland to use iodine to make thyroid hormone...which you ain't got! You are TAKING, not making, your thyroid hormone. Take your l-thyroxine and don't worry. ...Read more

Yes, but: It would be potentially dangerous and possibly illegal depending upon the source of the amphetamines. Why put something in your body that is harmful and can potentially kill you? Also get off the armour thyroid, which is ground up pig tissue and have your doctor put you on brand name T4 replacement, which is better and safer. ...Read more
Vitamins: Most vitamins don't affect BP but need to know content of specific one you take. ...Read more

Folic acid deficiency may be another potential factor but the latter is rather uncommon except in alcoholics in this country.

The amount of vit d3 in a multivitamin preparation however is too enough for most people. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
