    What other meds can I take with Levothyroxin to help with symptoms

    Does anyone have any advise on anything else I can buy over the counter or ask my GP for to help with the ongoing problems linked with hashimotos disease.

    The weight gain and sleepiness are the worse, then the feeling cold and mood changes. The rest I can live with until my meds get everything to stabilise.

    Also is the a diet regime I can follow?

    Hello @lauramurillo82 and welcome to the forums

    I am not an expert myself but you could try avoiding food which can cause underactive thyroid e.g. brassica family (cabbage, Brussels sprouts, broccoli, and cauliflower), contain chemicals called 'goitrogens' that interfere with thyroid hormone synthesis. If you use them in your food, make sure they are well cooked.

    Apart from that you could take selenium, Brazil Nuts, sea salt, cocunut oil, Freshly made organic vegetable juices, seafood, sea vegetables, sunflower seeds, Brazil nuts, cashews, grapefruit juice, organic eggs, lime etc

    You can try adding some supplements to see if they make any difference. Vitamin D, Vitamin B12, Essential Fatty Acids (Fish Oil, Cod Oil, Evening Promise Oil etc), Selenium, Vitamin C. Apart from vitamin D and selenium, you can take higher doses of other supplements as they are water soluble and would be flushed out of the system if not required.

    If you are low of Vitamin D and ferritin, your symtpoms are going to be exactly the same as like low thyroid. Hope this helps.
