I was put on T4 about 4 yrs ago and added T3 about 1 yr ago. T4 did very little to alleviate many symptoms, but T3 has improved my quality of life by 1000%. The problem is, I continue to have memory problems and am having a lot of trouble at work with errors which cost my company money.
One bit of information I've gleaned through my self-education is that T3 carries oxygen from the blood stream into the cells of the body where metabolism happens. If this is true, then hypothyroidism is basically oxygen deprivation in every cell of the body including the brain cells. We all know what happens to the brain when deprived of oxygen for too long - cell death. And brain cells are not replaced when they die, unlike all the other cells of the body.
What I'm getting at is that I'm very afraid that I have suffered irreparable brain damage which I'm not going to recover from and will continue to make errors at work which will result in my eventual dismissal. My company is aware of my health problems and are trying to work with me to improve my performance, but they will only continue with that so far before they give up on me.
Does anyone have experience with losing a job because of their hypothyroidism? I'm looking for any advise on how to protect myself. Are there any programs out there to help me?
Hi all, I bought a ninja blender a month ago and started on a smoothie regimen which I’ve actually noticed big difference cognitively. I’m thinking clearer and definitely see improvement communicating with others. Unfortunately it has not improved my fatigue levels or malaise. So I was wondering if anybody else is blending out there and if you have any good recipes and which improvements...
In a rouine checkup my doctor said I have a thyroid node, send me to get a ultrasound, and some lab test, my T4 .91, THS .350 and T3 3.3, what this means!?
