In 1997 I was diagnosed with hashimotoes thyroiditis. I live in the uk in Liverpool, It's a poor area, and I feel with the t4 drug thyroxine, that it was never treated properly.

20 years have passed and on followed autoimmune diseases. I got m/ecfs, fibro and heart disease. I suffer with chronic insommia and my sleep has been awful for 12 years. But this last summer, it went really chronic, and I was only getting 2 hrs a night. I also lost 5 and a half stone since July 1st. I had loads of tea tests and they wouldn't even test my hormones. So I did the questionaire and it gave a score of 81

Hi Annie

I can never understand why doctors do not test hormones. Excess estrogen slows the thyroid down. Please consider using a good organic progesterone cream such as Natpro, between 100-200mg is needed, more if symptoms are severe. You will have to experiment with this amount to see what suits you.

Selenium and Vitamin D3 deficiencies are also implicated in Hashi's. Have you had these tested? As you live in the UK, I suspect that your D3 is low. Optimal level is between 70-100ng/mL, 5,000iu's is needed per day, more if you are deficient. Co-factors are needed especially Magnesium and Vitamin K2.
