I am sure you just want to help, but telling us how to cure thyroid problems when your own is not cured, does not help.
People that post here have either disease or deficiencies of thyroid. If one cannot produce insulin, one has to supplement insulin. It is the same for thyroid.
Diet alone does not fix thyroid problems.
Supplements of other than thyroid will not replace needed thyroid for one that cannot produce enough to be well.
It is normal for thyroid levels to fluctuate, as a healthy thyroid will produce what is needed to balance whatever is going on in the body.
Your friend may have had a virus or bacteria attacking her thyroid, causing it to spill out too much for awhile, and then got well, so the thyroid went back to normal. That does happen.
I seriously doubt the diet made it happen.
To come on the board and tell vulnerable people with sick thyroids that they don't need the medicines they just need to change their diets is incorrect, and potentially extremely harmful, if they listened to you and quit their meds.
