Hypothyroid. Tyrosine improves T4 toT3 conversion
Since taking Tyrosine 500mg first thing a.m. with t4 & t3, for 18 months my bi-annual t4 readings have been well within normal range, & I've felt less like a zombie.
For anyone recently diagnosed Hypothyroid:- it took me nearly 3 years to adjust to the medication, i.e. regain something like my normal persona & functioning.
In recent years my UK consultants instigated 6 monthly check-ups. This didn't take place until after insisting with a GP that I must see a consultant, because I found out that my blood test results were far into the abnormal range. Evidently no GP had bothered to look at them for several years, but when I asked about them, I was told that they were normal. This was despite me complaining for 3-4 years of what are standard malfunctions in hypothyroidism.Their ignorance/laziness is stunning.
Thanks to this website, I am currently surreptitiously training my GP to do the job properly.
