What is thyroid tunnel vision?
Symptoms you have thyroid tunnel vision:
#1. You believe that all of your symptoms are related to your thyroid.
#2. You are constantly reading and learning more about the thyroid but nothing is helping.
#3. You constantly change your dose of thyroid medication without any relief.
#4. You focus on relatively inconsequential things such as fillers/dyes in medications.
#5. You’ve accepted that you will never get better or get relief.
What to do about it?
Step #1. Get a full set of lab tests which include MORE than just your hormones.
Vitamin B12, Iron, Leptin, Insulin, Cholesterol, CBC, liver function, kidney function, inflammatory markers (autoimmune markers if necessary)
Step #2. Don’t neglect your thyroid but focus on other aspects as well
Adrenal health, gut health, detoxification measures, lifestyle factors
Step #3. Layer therapies on top of each other.
Therapies ALWAYS work better when added to each other. This means doing multiple things at once.
Diet, supplements, change in medication, exercise, hormones, medications, fasts, etc.
Step #4. Be patient.
It took years and years to cause your thyroid condition.
If you make changes to your medication don’t re-check your lab tests for at least 6 weeks
Don’t go by how you feel day to day but how you feel month to month
