I had hashimotos. To help get it under control take 200mcg selenium supplement a day for a couple months, then taper off to once or twice a week, do the same with some good quality fish oil. Take magnesium glycinate before bed or whenever you want. Finally, go gluten free & lower carbs a bit or a lot. No levothyroxine necessary! Antibodies went from 550, to 350, to 150 to 90 and then I stopped going to the Drs. Feeling better and most importantly, NO INSOMNIA! Good luck, you can beat it!
To be honest, I feel that I may have had high amounts of floaters before & now I'm not bothered by it as much, so you may be on to something!
I've been working on Selenium also. I need to work on Magnesium. Also gluten free and dairy free.
I'm not sure I'll be able to go off the medicine though. I believe my thyroid has a lot of damage. My TSH was 71 when they found it. But, anything that helped you put it into remission is good for me also...Better to stop it from doing more damage.
Thanks for the info!!
