I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's many years ago. Had been on Synthroid for 15 years. But then symptoms got worse again so I switched to 150 mgs of Armour Thyroid 2 years ago. I did feel a great deal better but not perfect. Now 2 years later, I feel terrible again. My doctor did a full blood work up (again). He said my Thyroid (TSH - T3 - T4) are 'in the toilet'. Also, my Vitamin D was very low. So I did a bunch of research on Vitamin D3 (which is the one they say is important in all I've read). Have any of you found that by taking Vitamin D3 it has greatly helped your symptoms? I read this statement in an article that talked about Vitamin D3 and the relationship to Hashimoto's. '***Find someone that knows what to do, because Vitamin D deficiency and Hashimoto's are almost the same thing." Any advice?

I did all that hard work, and...
