Maca Questions?

I actually have two questions?!

I am on .125 synthroid, my doctor put me on it because I have a goiter. My blood work showed in the normal range, but because of my symptoms he agreed to try synthroid. My doctor told me that technically I should not be on synthroid for the goiter, and he said that other doctors would frown on him for it. I did not understand what he meant by that. Something to do with the goiter. My question is I still feel tired, but he is treating me now as if I am lying, over exaggerating, etc. He actually got snappy with me the last visit. He told me I need a vacation. I told him I just wanted to get to the bottom of being tired still. Although I do feel better, I am still suffering fatigue, and mood swings. He told me that my blood work showed that he was over treating me just a little bit, but he said sinse I feel improvement he will leave me on the dose I am on. I just fear this is the way I will have to feel for the rest of my life. I am so sick of being tired.

My second question is how does Maca work. Does it have positive affects on the thyroid? I am on Vitamin B and feel alot of improvement more energy, but not enough to stay awake all day long.

Please any advise!!! <IMG SRC="">

Re: Maca Questions?

Hi Emily,
I would do an internet search on Maca Gold, and read up on it.

Maca nutritionally affects all the hormonal glands by helping them balance, or so I have read.

I sprinkle Maca powder on toasted and buttered bread-maker bread that I make myself from scratch, for breakfast.
I think it helps my energy level, because I used to have to drink coffee to get myself in gear for the day.
I wanted to almost totally quit coffee, and with Maca, I have been able to. I even forget to take my other supplements, when taking Maca.
It may help you...we are all different though.

I wonder what your blood work results are that the doctor says is inappropriate for thyroid med. It seems like he is feeling uneasy, and is not sure of how to treat thyroid. But he IS trying, that is good!

Happy Thanksgiving! TF
