Ok so these numbers may still look high to you but if I show you where I started (and I will!) you will be like WHOA!
When I was first diagnosed with hyperthyroidism on AUGUST 9, 2012, these were my labs:
I don’t know exactly what all the numbers mean but I do know that they were all super high, except for my TSH (which has not budged very far from <.006 throughout this whole process).
So after 2 months on METHIMAZOLE, prescribed by my prior endocrinologist, these were my labs from 3/4/13:
The Rx made my thyroid slow down way too much too fast, which is why I ended up gaining 25 lbs while taking the meds. I stopped taking the Rx the day after I received these results.
After only 2 months of stopping the medicine, my numbers climbed back up to basically where I had started. Here are my labs from when I FIRST started the vegan diet (labs are dated 5/14/13):
These were taken 6 months later, on 9/24/13:
And finally, the big kahuna, my labs after 9 months, taken 12/24/13:
If for some reason you can’t see these photos,
My (FREE)T4 was 4.54 at the start of the diet, after 9 months it has dropped to 2.44.
My (FREE T3) started at 22.1. It is now 6.5.
I AM A WALKING, TALKING, FREAKING MIRACLE!
And I feel AMAZING!
I still have a ways to go before I am technically “normal” again, but compared to where I started, I am light years ahead of my wildest wishes. I am balancing my thyroid through diet – and diet alone! – and that is all I ever wanted or could have wished for.
Anthony said I would be back to “normal” in 1 year. I really, truly, can say that I whole heartedly believe he is correct, and my thyroid WILL be back to normal by May of this year.
THANK YOU ANTHONY WILLIAM! You are a miracle worker. I believe 🙂
