Discussions that mention synthroid

Liverock you say: "If you have been checked and found clear of Hypoadrenalism then The Basal Temperature Test can be used to check for hypothyroidism. "

What is hypoadrenalism? I am not familiar with this.

I was diagnosed with Hypothyroidism, but, chose not to take Synthroid or drugs for it. I am not fond of taking drugs if I can avoid it. I did take the basal temperature test a few years ago and my temp was low. That is when I was first diagnosed and when I started Kelp supplements. This was about 2 1/2 yrs ago. I had a blood test about six months after taking Kelp and the thyroid seems to be OK according to Doc anyway. But, since then, I have been diagnosed Pre-diabetic and have had high cholesterol (228). So, maybe not so????

If I am understanding you correctly, you are saying that L-Carnitine & Fiber tablets are not good for hypothyroidism is that correct?

I will give the iodine test a try. But, if I have been taking Kelp for 2 1/2 years I should not be iodine insufficient? Correct?

I appreciate your suggestions and your help I will check out Lugol's Iodine. Oh, one more question do you have hypothyroidism? Thanks!
