    Like a pp said, it sound like you've made your mind up, so not sure what you're asking.

    If your blood test results come back saying 'x', doctors will try and treat you for 'x'. There isn't always an underlying treatable reason for thyroids playing up. Every doctor I have asked, as well as a naturopath has strongly advised not to use the dissociated thyroid and use thyroxine instead. I was hesitant to take daily thyroxine as I didn't want to start taking a drug I would have to take for the rest of my life, but it is what it is. If you want the symptoms to go away, you need to treat them, predominantly with medication.

    I have found my Hashimotos is a lot less noticeable when I take my thyroxine (50 one day 100 the next) and cut gluten and sugar out of my diet.

    Good luck

    I had trouble falling pregnant, DH and I did IVF, primarily for male factors. We had two unsuccessful cycles, then switched doctors. My new FS diagnosed hypothyroidism (previous blood tests had shown it but no other doctors had diagnosed it), put me on 50mcg thyroxine and then I got pregnant first cycle. My thyroid wasn't the only reason I wasn't falling pregnant but I believe it was a big factor. Ideally tsh should be under 2.5 for pregnancy. I'm on 100mcg now I'm pregnant and would not even consider not taking it. When I first started taking the meds, I wasn't sure how much difference they'd make but within about four days I noticed a massive difference in my energy levels - I didn't realise just how terrible I'd been feeling before. I would at least trial thyroxine if I were you.

    yea thats great

    i dont have hashis or the diseases though as my antibodies were clear
    they are basically treating me purely on TSH alone she said
    thats what i dont understand about it

    as yes the the free t4 is a little on the lower but still within range for normals.
    How ever she didnt test my free t3 which i beleive is the other main one to really see whats happening.
    i have read many are misdiagnosed purely on TSH reading alone,
    so thats what i think once checked fir that also least then i can see overall picture and make a choice to take them as then i will see whats happening.
    it will also be nice to be tested when not on diet shakes as i have bene on and off them for 12yrs and every blood test i have basically always been on optifast, so this will give me a better picture clearer i should say.

    thank you ladies so much, do any of you mind if i pop back next week with my results so you can help out with the free t3 and ferritin levels to (if they test what i ask)

    is there any others i need to ask for???

    I'd join a group on Facebook called iodine or another called iodine workshop. You'll learn a lot more in there then you will here.

    The Girls over on "Reproductive Immunology" on the Fertility Assistance Sub Forum are extremely knowledgeable about all of this stuff as many of them have had trouble TTC or have sadly MC due to their Immune Issues so might be worth asking them on one of the threads what their advice would be
