Thanks for pointing the thyroid out to me. I checked my blood work and I did have the AST and ALT tested and they came in at 22 and 23, respectively.
As far as symptoms go, I definitely don't notice any bulging to my throat area. I do have dry skin, my outer eyebrows do feel a bit sparse, and I would say I typically do get cold pretty easily. I have also had issues with excessive perspiration in the past, although it has calmed in the past year or two. I used to constantly sweat on my upper lip.
I went to the store and got some kelp which is a natural source of iodine as I'm sure you already know. I read some reviews online of people lowering their TSH levels significantly with kelp so I figured I'd give it a try. I can say that since buying the kelp yesterday, I already notice my energy is up, and I have far less irritability/brain fog/ call it what you want. There are certain things I have been procrastinating in my life and this morning I got a few of them done. I'm going to credit the kelp for that.
I will have to get a thermometer and check my oral temperature per the thyroid basics sticky. Like I said these symptoms of low T have been going on for a while now. I definitely have irritability and anxiety and ultimately I just want to get back to feeling normal. I have noticed a big difference since supplementing with boron, magnesium, zinc, nettle, and DIM, but still not quite where I want to be.
Your answer was very helpful and I really appreciate it. Is it necessary to get SHBG tested? Is there any scenario where my SHBG is not extremely high considering my Total to Free test ratio?
