Why am i always cold? Blood tests less than a month ago were all normal-no vitamin deficiencies or hypothyroidism.
Inadequate tests : Most people who feel cold all the time are hypothyroid. Many who are hypothyroid have "normal" T4 and TSH levels. Unless you had your free t3 (liothyronine), (liothyronine) reverse t3 (liothyronine) ; thyroid antibodies checked thyroid problems have not been ruled out. A holistic md is likely to do adequate tests. See http://bit.Ly/1bogdxh ; http://bit.Ly/1cjnybx. ...Read more
I am diagnosed with hypothyroid.At present I am on eltroxin 100 mg and calcium vitamins.Can i also take prenatal vitamins but I am not planning 2yrs.?
Yes: Yes you can. I think it is wise for everyone to take a multivitamin. Prenatal vitamins can be a great multiple for women of childbearing age even if they are not currently pregnant. There are many good ones. My favorite brands include rainbow light and new chapter. As you may know, it is best to take thyroid on an empty stomach and to not take calcium supplements until at least 2 hours later. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

I also advise taking 5000 iu of vit d in fall & winter months. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
Being vitamin deficient ( never taking any vitamins) til now. Could that have weakened my thyroid and caused me to have hypothyroidism?
Vitamins are in food: A person in the U.S. Who eats a balanced diet, has normal digestion, and exercises outdoors regularly, does not become vitamin-deficient even if she never buys any vitamin-supplements from the store. Some disorders can make a person deficient in certain vitamins over time, so doctors do check for certain conditions as needed. Not getting iodine from salt or foods, may lead to thyroid problems. ...Read more
What happens if u go a wk w/o your weekly 50,000 IU vitamin d tab or 3 days w/o yr synthroid? I'm severely vit d deficient&have hypothyroidism.
Take it later: Hi. Both of those drugs are nice in that they have a long half-life. Therefore, if you forget a dose, take it when you think of it. Try not to miss your medications. If you miss the once weekly vitamin D, take it when you think of it and resume normal schedule. If you miss a day of Synthroid, take 2 the next day; miss 2 days, take 3 the following day. Good luck! ...Read more
I am 38 year old female with hypothyroidism, vitamin d and b deficiencies and highly suspected aldh 2 enzyme deficiency. How does this all tie in?
Yes: Having hypothryroidism does not affect your need for vitamins. The only concern is that taking calcium supplements can interfere with absorption of thyroid hormone, so if the penatal vitamin has calcium take it at least 2 hours after taking thyroid. Also, i advise having your doctor check your free T3 level- if not in the upper half of the normal range consider adding liothyronine (t3). ...Read more
I'm on 100mgs of thyroxine for hypothyroidism. I'm trying for a baby can I take a preconception vitamin with iodine in it 150mg. Will it interact. ?
That's fine: Hi. It's fine to take that prenatal vitamin with that iodine; it won't interact with your l-thyroxine. And just to clarify, you're taking 100 micrograms (mcg), not 100 milligrams (mg). 100 mcg is the same as 0.1 mg, so if you want to use milligrams, it's 0.1 mg. Often your l-thyroxine dose will need to be increased early in your pregnancy. I'm sure your OB is on top of that. Good luck! ...Read more
What is a recommended diet for someone with hypothyroidism, hypercortisolism, pernicious anemia, and a vitamin d2 deficiency?
Nutrient dense foods: Eat foods that are nutrient dense (like meat, fish, poultry, eggs, cheese, low starch vegatables and water) avoid foods that are not nutrient dense (like starches and sugars, including fruit) nutrient dense foods will increase your basal metabolic rate. On the other hand, starches and sugars impair thyroid metabolism via affects on your liver (which helps activate thyroid hormone). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
