  1. I started out with grave disease, done the radioactive iodine. Taking synthroid now. It still have sleepless nights, not much energy. So I have had weight gain. So this also work for my situation. What kind of supplements would you suggest?

  2. Thanks so much for this! I have hypothyroidism. I’ve worked hard to feel better but just couldn’t get to feeling great. I will try your recommendations. How long did it take for you to feel better?

  3. This is definitely a good starting list. A lot of patients come with thyroid problems – and for most they don’t know that they are lacking in many nutrients. Supplementing these nutrients may not solve all their problems, but it can help alleviate the symptoms and perhaps help them feel better.

    I would also add Ashwagandha or L-Tyrosine to this list. I’ve read many research studies on Ashwagandha in particular – and the results seem very positive so far. Here’s one of them if anyone wants to read it: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/25624699

    1. I would definitely recommend working with a naturopathic doctor or at least a holistic nutritionist in addition to your doctor, they look to the root of the problem and can work with more nuanced issues. Here is a resource to find a good nutritionist or ND- https://re-findhealth.com/members/

      The Hypothyroidism solution ebook in this post is also a good resource for more info. I hope your daughter feels better!

  5. I have Hoshimoto’s.. Have been treated for over 5 years with Synthroid from a reputable endocrinologist. I have not had one day since being diagnosed that I haven’t felt exhausted. I have to drag myself through the day…

    1. So sorry to hear that! I would definitely recommend working with a naturopathic doctor. There is a lot that regular doctors miss on thyroid labs!

    2. try natural dessicated thyroid (NDT). It is natural thyroid and works far better than synthroid. Some folks are OK with synthroid but many are not. It didnt work for me so I did some research and switched to NDT; am far better now. I read Dr. Brownstein’s books and I highly recommend his book on iodine, also his book on adrenal fatigue.

    3. IMO synthroid is just plain bad medicine. It doesn’t work for many, you may be one. You might want to have your T3 and T4 checked. Synthroid does NOT have both T3 and T4 and if you need both, it won’t work. Try natural dessicated thyroid there are several brands, they all work pretty much the same. I was undiagnosed for 30 yrs and had to to research and research, but I learned alot and finally found a medical professional who has helped me. I went to top notch M.D., endocrinologists and no one could figure out what was wrong with me. I even had a huge goiter sticking out the side of my neck but M.D. couldnt diagnose and were stumped – which is ridiculous and unbelievable if I hadn’t exerienced it myself. I lost 30 yrs of my life because of it. Doing much better now on NDT.

  6. Been taking thyroid med almost 20 yrs. For long time have wondered really? What’s wrong here.? I’m 63 & just plain tired of this! Thx so much for info.

  7. I didn’t realize any thyroid disorder could be in remission. I have had a thyroid disease for over 20 years

  8. I don’t have a thyroid anymore due to two doses of radioactive iodine. Would taking these supplements have any benefits. I still battle many symptoms of hypothyroidism, even though I take synthroid.

    1. I’m not sure about that. I would check with a naturopathic doctor to see what would work best for your situation.

  9. So much interesting info here! I’ve long sought out extra sources of Omega-3s for other reasons, and never knew they could be helpful for hypothyroidism, as well! Will definitely keep that and the other recommendations in mind for future reference.

  10. This is such a great resource on thyroid health! It can be so overwhelming to those who don’t know where to start when they have issues like this too. Thanks for sharing!

  11. I don’t know anyone who has hypothyroidism, but this is certainly useful information. Thanks for sharing!

  12. I don’t have hypothyroidism but I do have family members with thyroid issues and have researched this. Thanks for the list of supplements – B complex is good for so many things!
