Thyroid Q and A or Running Hot and Cold


Hypothyroidism (Read 382 times)


    Hi, folks!


    I'm so glad I found this group!


    I was recently diagnosed with hypothyroidism and my physician is encouraging me to go on a low dose of Synthroid.  I would prefer a more holistic alternative, since I've not taken ANY kind of medication in over 5 years.  I visited a dietician today in hopes that I could make some dietary changes, but unfortunately, she had no recommendation for me.


    I'm about 6 weeks away from running my second marathon, and I'm nervous about going on a hormone at this point in my training.  Do any of you have suggestions or ideas or wisdom to share?


    Thanks so much!

      Welcome Cherubino - going on the thyroid hormone won't affect your training, except for the better. Don't be nervous.

      Go as long as you can, and then take another more step.
