The butterfly-shaped thyroid can be slow to respond — both to diet and medication – but it does eventually seem to kick in gear.
♦ I just received lab results back this morning and I need to decrease my thyroid medication!!
♦ I’ve been on this medication for 10 years and this is the first time I’ve had to DECREASE my dose.
♦ After eating the TQI Way for 5 months and 12 days, I have noticed a change in my thyroid function. I ran out of thyroid medicine on Sunday and kept forgetting to go pick it up at the pharmacy. In the past, without thyroid I would be sleep walking by day 2. But this time, I went a total of 6 days and didn’t even miss the medication. I had energy and I was wide awake. I am thinking that this new way of eating IS helping my thyroid to function better. It will be interesting to have my next test to see if my dose will be reduced. My doctor will be pleased to see that I have lost 20 lbs too.
♦ Good news from the doc appointment. My BP is much lower, 114/78, dosage cut in half. Blood test indicates I’m absorbing the thyroid med better, so that dose is also reduced.
