Himalayan salt does not have iodine in it. Yes its there, but too tiny to matter. Same for sea salt. You can find iodized sea salt if you look for it.
Yes, thyroid can affect every organ in your body, and LH/FSH can be affected.
We see a lot of thyroid/iodine issues with low-T here.
When you do the labs and we see LH/FSH; if low, one can suspect a pituitary defect. If high and T is not, the problem would be the testes. Elevated prolactin can indicate an adinoma and lower LH/FSH. When you do the labs, keep taking the same dose of clomid and be stead on that so we know what the labs represent.
With Crohn's, you need more/stronger supplements to compensate not less.
Your body makes the amino acid 5-HTP and converts it into serotonin, an
important brain chemical. Researchers think abnormal serotonin function
in blood vessels may be related to migraines, and some of the drugs
used to treat migraines work by affecting serotonin. Several studies
indicate that 5-HTP may be as effective as some prescription migraine
medications at reducing the intensity and frequency of attacks. But not
all studies agree. One study found that 5-HTP was less effective than
the beta-blocker Inderal. More studies are needed to be sure that 5-HTP
is helpful in treating migraines. If you have a history of psychiatric
illness, take an antidepressant, or supplements such as St. John's wort
or SAMe, you should not take 5-HTP except under your doctor's
supervision. If you are pregnant or breastfeeding, do not take 5-HTP
without first asking your doctor.
People with migraines often have lower levels of magnesium than people
who do not have migraines, and several studies suggest that magnesium
may reduce the frequency of migraine attacks in people with low levels
of magnesium. In one study, people who took magnesium reduce the
frequency of attacks by 41.6%, compared to 15.8% in those who took
placebo. Some studies also suggest that magnesium may help women whose
migraines are triggered by their periods. Side effects from magnesium
can include lower blood pressure and diarrhea. Magnesium can interact
with medications, including heart medications, diuretics or water pills,
some antibiotics, and muscle relaxers.
Vitamin B2 (riboflavin).
A few studies indicate that riboflavin may reduce the frequency and
duration of migraines. In one study, people who took riboflavin had more
than a 50% decrease in the number of attacks. Not all studies have
found riboflavin to be effective, however. More research is needed.
Riboflavin can interact with some medications, including tricyclic
antidepressants, medications called anticholinergic drugs that are used
to treat a variety of conditions, the antiseizure drug phenobarbital,
and probenecid, used to treat gout.
