Are there certain vitamins I can take to help Hashimotos disease symptoms? If so what's recommended. Foggy head and dizziness and fatigue is the worst

In brief: Vitamin D & thyroid.

The treatment of Hashimotos thyroiditis is typically with thyroid hormone to normalize the TSH level.
This disease typically causes an under active thyroid which would be evidenced by a low FT4, elevated TSH and positive TPO antibodies. No vitamins will help with the symptoms or disease progression. However, over 90% of such patient have vitamin D deficiency which should be treated by D3 supplemen
