Hello to all, and let me first say how happy I am to have found this forum.
quick history. I have spent about five years going into menopause, seeing an endo for hormone replacement, and have been happy for a couple of years with no hot flashes. Did have thyroid checked a couple of years ago and was in normal range. But the biggest change I noticed about four years ago was that I suddenly gained 20 lbs in one year. I've always been slim, never had problem controlling the weight, and always hated exercise. But now I can't seem to get my weight to budge, especially in the middle.
I've known for years that my body temp is always low, but just now found out that there's a syndrome called Wilson's S. out there, and that this is probably related to low iodine. I'm making an appt tomorrow to see a Dr. Scumpia, see what she can do.
My question: Does anyone have this low temp where their thyroid levels are normal? Do any of you use natural supplements, including iodine, to correct this problem? Any luck?
Again, this is all new to me. I apologize for the lenghty post. I'll hush up and keep reading.
Thanks in advance for all info.
