Hello,

I have read in several websites that the effect of the coconut oitl are amazing if you have hypothyroidsm. I bought a jar and ate it 3 times per day, every day for two weeks. I feel so full of live but I haven't lost any weight and I was wondering if it is because I am also taking levothyroin for my thyroids. Does anybody know about this? Could it be the cause?

BTW, I am training every day and are on a strict diet controlled by a physician.

Thanks!

How much coconut oil did you eat--a teaspoon, tablespoon?

My hypothyroid condition makes me think I might have a stroke or hear attack it's so bad. I'm not getting proper sleep and I'm in a constant fog and feel weak. My physician prescribed 15mg of Armour Thyroid but it's not enough.

I found this info too and am going to ask my GP if its OK to take iodine supplements but I cannot find a supplier in the UK only America. Evidently the amount of iodine in Kelp supplements is not enough. Has anyone more info on this?

Anyone in a developed country will not be iodine deficient. Iodine is added to lots of food, especially salt. In fact, it's thought that too much iodine may trigger Hashimoto's.

The most common cause is Hashimoto's, an autoimmune destruction of the thyroid - only thing that will help with that is some kind of replacement medication.

Read all you can about adding iodine to your diet. Make sure you will not make it worse. I don't think you should do this lightly just because an ad on a web site said to do it.

Plus ask a natural meds doc and take a look at your iodine level thru blood work. Everyone is searching for the "natural" cure but my brother who has no thyroid because of cancer, would not be able to function without synthroid.

i thought about taking it for about 2 seconds and then decided NO. I doubt that my problem of a growth was caused by iodine being too low.

Too much iodine doesn't always trigger Hashimoto's, but there's definitely data that support that, although a certain HLA genotype also plays a role. This association was noted in a pathology lecture on autoimmune diseases.
