As well as getting the correct type of thyroid medication for you and the optimal dosage, it’s also important to address other factors that can be contributing to you feeling unwell. Even on thyroid medication and at an optimal dosage.
I thought for a long while that once I reached my optimal dosage on NDT, with lab results to match, that I would return to the level of health and fitness that I had before. But, I didn’t.

Travelling with a chronic illness can seem daunting. Especially if you also have specific dietary requirements and/or your medication isn’t conventional.
So I thought I’d share a few tips I’ve learnt since having hypothyroidism and travelling around the world.
I wrote this post back in November last year, but scheduled it to post this summer in preparation for all of you going on your hols!
This is a guest post, written by a thyroid patient, about how she’s working on putting her Hashimoto’s into remission and now lives symptom-free.
