    Hello, After finding a good Dr (from a post that I earlier posted \o/), I was able to get T3 recommended for me. As soon as I started T3 (04/19) it instantly gave me an energy boost and I didnt feel as drained and sluggish anymore. Started T3 on 04/19. Next week the following symptoms...

    Hello! Few months ago I started really looking into my health, family history etc. and noticed that things I learned in the past just do not add up. I come from south-east Poland and was 6 years old when Chernobyl happened. I remember that day and getting iodine tincture to drink. My sister...

    Dear Hashimoto-survivors, I'm asking myself this question for a long time but couldn't figure this out yet.
