Re: Thyroid and brain fog
Hello all I saw Dr and dietician yesterday. I asked about Cushings disease too. Dr said all tests were normal ( I can put them on if anyone is interested and I had just commenced 100mcgs thyroxine then). He also said the higher dose of 100mcgs after 50mcgs may take two weeks to kick in. I have to have another series of blood tests anyway and a urine 24 hr collection for cushings. I have just started the food exercise diary, it is amazing how it mounts up even when you think you're eating healthy. Sorry, (it wasn't what I wanted to hear either but doing the numbers really makes you realise and it is such a drag.) I know where the trap is though, for me anyway. It is ********, sit sit sit and the TV after dinner because I sit down and think about what else I'd like to eat. The solution is get up, do something, vacuum a room, play guitar or anything else or clean out the pantry or fridge while you're listening to the telly/music etc. Hope it helps.
