Are you on thyroxin now? Or can you manage it in another way?
My new doctor had given me blood tests which showed my thyroid was underactive but he said he didn't want to prescribe thyroxine (the standard cure) because it was only "borderline" underactive and he preferred waiting to see if it cleared up on its own, so I had to go on feeling cold, tired and sluggish for the next couple of years til it did eventually clear up.
I'd researched the condition on the net and found out that fluoride might have a bad effect on peoples thyroids, so I switched to fluoride-free toothpaste and that probably helped it clear up. i'd also heard that grapefruit might help, so I started eating grapefruit slices and that might have helped too.
