I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism about a month ago. My insurance has a waiting period of 6-8 weeks before I can see a specialist. Attempting to work today with the fatigue, anxiety, hand shaking, dizziness and muscel cramps is extremely hard! I'm sure most of you understand that!

I began taking some daily vitamins that totally increased my energy level. Nothing has made me feel "normal" again, but I have felt so much better. I really wanted to share these with you all. These are the vitamins that I began taking:

B-Complex: it has B6 and vitamin C in it (as we all know your immune system gets all messed up with this)
L-Arginine: athletes take this to increase energy
B12: takes the food you eat and converts in into energy
D: It helps with the muscel cramps

I hope this can help someone else like its helped me!

I definetely agree about the B-complex and B-12 as it has helped me a lot.

I prefer the B12 better...the Bcomplex isn't so good. It just doesn't help as much as the B12 does. Can you take them together?

What about L-Carnitine? I saw that in a post. The one I picked up is Acetyl L-Carnitine
And do these diets reduce the goiter that's starting? I wss just diagnosed when I went to check about some swelling, shakey hands and intestinal pain. I haven't been able to get an appointment with a specialist yet and am not sure how I feel about taking the meds she'll prescribe since I seldom take meds.

Hi Christine,

I don't know if they vitamins help with the goiter or not, but I know that I couldn't live without them. All these vitamins do is help the energy level.

It might be a good idea to ask your doctor if they will help.

Thanks for your post. I'm not feeling like a need to lie around the house all day since I've started all this "diet" (a few days ago ) I'm just dumping vitamins and supplements into my body now:
B-complex, L-Arginine, multi-vitamin, vitamin C, Calcium-Magnesium wiht D when I remember, and Aloe Vera Gel. I've stopped caffeine and alcohol, dairy and most "white" food stuff, and have added broccolli, cauliflower, and blueberries to my diet. Although I'm up most of the night, the shaking has stopped with Bystolic (for high blood pressure), the end of the school year, and a little exercise (my muscles just don't want to put out) The nurse recoomended taking Melatonin to help sleep. So far that hasn't worked.

I downloaded a book about living with hyperthyroidism and Graves disease and am trying as much of those food recommendations as I can. We'll see...

I was diagnosed is Sept 2010 with hyperthyroid. Dr wanted to do radiation but I didn't want to do something so drastic, so I went to the health food store. I have been taking d-3, Acetyl L-Carnitine Vit A and the most important is Bugle Weed. The bugle weed has helped so much, if you have heart palpitations especially. I just had blood work done & my numbers are all better. I am So excited!

Vitamins are not always the best bet when dealing with hyperthyroidism.

This condition is often misdiagnosed and in actuality the patient is suffering from Hashimoto't Thyroiditis. If this is the case diet is going to be a huge portion of the treatment process. Inflammatory foods are common is our 'general' diets and are responsible for increasing symptoms.

My best advice would be to follow an anti-inflammatory diet and see how your body responds. You would be surprised at how much that can help the problem.

Thyroid conditions are not related to just one problem the body, they are instead tied to many bodily functions and organs.

I published an article that outlines why thyroid symptoms don't get better over time. Have a look.

Although I have been taking Methimazole in decreasing doses through my treatment of hyperthyroidism, I feel that my diet and mentality have helped me in my progress to normal levels of TSH, T3 adn T4 (above double when I started!). I believe a combination of acupuncture, taking a few minutes to 'chill' each morning, L-Carnitine, Iron, exercising an appropriate amount to my food intake (vs too much exercising and not eating enough). In an effort to be healthier and to have something in my stomache before taking Methimazole, I now eat two slices of WHOLE GRAIN toast with coconut oil (instead of butter) first thing each morning. I try to avoid white sugars, non-wholegrain breads, dairy, caffeine and salt, for the most part...and choose something 'Gluten free' over something compatibly priced that doenst' have that trait. I have had 'normal' thryoid readings for a few months now, so at 2.5mg of MEthimazole every other day now, I HOPE to be totally off of it in another month. I TRY to eat more fruits, veggies, kale and broccoli now...compared to not really getting ANY of these in my diet in the past. Good luck to all of you trying to fight this 'disease' naturally!!! Don't give up!:)

I was diagnosed with hyperthyroidism exactly one month ago. I am taking Carbimozle.Still tired a lot but added extra Vit Bs and it seems to make a bit of difference. Trying out extra Vit C too. Going to check T3 and T4 next 2 wks.My most distressing symptoms are the fatigue, stressed feeling and extreme sweating. I remain optimistic that I will feel better soon. Any suggestions from you hypers. Thanks.

Cristine - Acetyl-l-carnitine is affects the brain after a stroke. You want l-carnitine which affects everything but the brain including the thyroid.- Folk_Singer
