Well, you'll get another lymie answering you here too. Were taking over LOL. I'd suggest reading the thyroid post we have over there too, just for learning whats going on.
Since you have hashi- you owe it to yourself to learn it, ...all of it.
It might be lifelong (95% of the time it is) if you were only following conventional medicine theory/treatment. Maybe you caught it in time.
Hashi is hypo thyroid (low output) from elevated antibodies (a blood test) attacking what they are supposed to defend. Why are they confused? Well in addition to lyme, you probably have leaky gut. And if you consume gluten and dariy, thats very "un-thyroid" apparently.
Your thyroid levels are tested and you need to eventually learn what these levels mean. The levels corealate with the proper dose of your thyroid med. Its potent stuff. If you consumed a weeks worth at once, your prob die. So don't lose tract.
The TSH is a non consumable hormone and is JUST A SIGNAL from the pituitary gland (hormone production brain) telling the thyroid gland how much thyroid to make, as the thyroid has no "brain" itself. The T4 and T3 are cell usable, lab measurable, thyroid hormones floating in your blood stream made by the thyroid gland and whats in your Nature Throid.
Your Nature Thyroid is not medicine. There is no medicine to fix your thyroid.
What it is- is thyroid supplemented hormone itself, but from a pig. Yep. Feel like rolling in the mud lately?..you now no why. NP and Armour are two other US brands of very similar pig thyroid. Synthroid, and / or Levothyroxine is a synthetic man made T4 only hormone that works for maybe 75% of the hypo thyroid people.
So yes you can get over stimulated/hyper from to much thyroid hormone - that's why your blood is tested. But just starting it will feel hyper for the first month even if the labs show your levels are good. It just takes the body a while to get used to some other type of hormone after its been low so long.
Oh- stop eating all dairy and gluten today if you have not already. No more man made foods either. I lowered one of my two hashimoto antibodies (called Tpo and TgAb) this year just from diet. They were still elevated after treating lyme. Lyme contributed but was not the remaining factor of my hashimoto. Food was. I retested and documented this, I don't guess. Better energy duration, sleep better too. Stronger in the gym. My life has improved. From DIET.
