thyroid autoimmune disease
I am struggling with thyroid autoimmune disease (high T4) and menopause at the same time - so my hormone levels are going up and down and I have phases where I feel good (almost "normal") and phases where I am depressed, exhausted and have symptoms like incontinence, hot flushes.... which I treat with mainly supplements, phytotherapy and homoeopathy, all working fine with enough patience. The cycles of feeling very down are off course not great and are ongoing for 2 years now. My thyroid levels came down but are still above normal.
My question: should I try progesterone or would this possibly upset my thyroid ?? I know that Thyroxine and female hormones are closely linked and would not like to activate my thyroid.
Maybe you can give me some insight and know of patients with the same problem who have used progesterone?
