Dealing with Hashimoto's Disease
Has anyone been diagnosed with Hashimoto's disease? I was just diagnosed in September and am about to start the AIP diet to see if eliminating some things may help my symptoms. Over the summer, my TPO antibodies were about 340, and my last TSH value was 4.4. T3, T4, reverse T3 are all in normal ranges. My total cholesterol is high as well as my LDL, which I've heard can be from Hashi's. Also, my B12 levels are SUPER high and so are one of my liver enzymes... weird! My endo would like me to at least get my TSH down to 2.5 as I'm hoping to try and get pregnant soon, and started me on 25mcg of levothyroxine. Any advice about diet and lifestyle that may help get my numbers down and get me healthy to sustain a pregnancy? I already eat a paleo-style diet, avoid gluten, dairy, soy, and processed sugar. Bonus points if you've gone through pregnancy with Hashimoto's and have any tips on that! Thank you!
