Greetings rockjen50! Welcome to the General Healthboards. I am sorry about this situation and hope that you receive the comfort and help that is needed. A thyroid test from an endocrinologist might be done if desired. Of course everyone is responsible for their own healthcare and their own health care decisions. Some foods tend to make it easier for a woman to bleed longer and maybe aught to be avoided except during period time. These foods might include corn, spinach, beets, peanuts, cabbage, turnips, (kale not with period time) rutabega, rapaseed, canola oil, soybean (some say it is good but I would not use tofu and it should be well cooked, it also is said to be a bit antithyroid), strawberries, pears, carrots, meat vinegar, mustard.
Because blood is being lost I would use more water daily on a free basis, no less than 6.25 cups for every 100 pounds body weight and probably more. It is good not to use too much either though. If the skin is pinched up and let go it should immediately go back down if not dehydration is present. The skin should not be dry but should be in a nice smooth silky condition in my opinion.
More foods to use more of might be one egg every other day (not more than this for the sake of the heart), and cherries, raisins, beans and some nuts for iron. Romaine lettuce has all the elements of blood in it except for the iron and it has a magnesium element instead. A wide variety of foods is good so I might try to find foods that few people have heard of and use these. Things that have been left out of the diet may need to be used more of. There are other foods that help contribute to more estrogen instead of the progesterone. Broccoli and seaweeds might be useful to stimulate thyroid a bit. Most people have a need for iodine and in some areas of the country this is in short supply in the foods. Peace, sjb
