I’ll try to keep this short but still provide some background: I have Graves Disease so had my thyroid removed in 2013. Since then I’ve been chasing the perfect TSH level and it seems I have to change my Synthroid dosage about every 6 months, sometimes increasing and sometimes decreasing. Unfortunately I experience about 5 weeks of lousy symptoms every time I change doses… not sure why and doc doesn’t believe me but I know it’s true. After four years of experiencing it every time I switch doses, it’s not coincidence.
Anyway, I changed doses again 8 weeks ago and finally started feeling some relief from the symptoms of the change, but yesterday and today they’re back again! I’m totally baffled as to why and then it dawned on me… is the fact that I’ve been doing keto for 2.5 weeks affecting the way my body is metabolizing or absorbing the Synthroid? I was due to have my blood tested this week but now that I feel myself “changing” again, I am going to hold off a few more weeks.
Have we ever figured out if Keto WOE affects our Synthroid/Levothyroxine?
