going off thyroid meds -- best way to maximize thyroid function?!

Answered on December 01, 2015
Created February 05, 2012 at 2:59 AM

i was put on thyroid meds (synthroid) for hypothyroid about 2 years ago, because my readings were "borderline." i never had any actual symptoms. recently i asked my doctor to go off the medication, because i don't feel like i should have been on it to begin with. also, since that time, i've changed my diet to primal, become much more active, reduced stress, and generally live a healthier lifestyle. i'm kinda hoping that my thyroid function will normalize completely simply due to these factors. since going off the medication about two weeks ago, i had some days of utter exhaustion -- i was warned it would take about 2-6 weeks for my thyroid to kick into high gear again.

does anyone have any experience going off thyroid meds? if so, what recommendations do you have for optimizing thyroid function through diet? maybe even some natural supplements?

Hi Heather 2, your comment really hit home with me. I have sooo many of the exact same symptoms. I have low T3 levels, elevated cholesterol, no menstrual period (on my own) for 3 years, low hormone levels (progesterone and estrogen), and low vitamin D. I also have hypoglycemia to I try to watch my starches. Oh and slow digestion which causes acid reflux.

Did you ever receive an official diagnosis of your problems? Also, can you go into more detail about your road to recovery? What does the fiber do for these types of symptoms, and why did you stop exercising and start relaxing more?

She needs a doctor who knows how to treat thyroid. Unless she is going to order her own blood work. Btw people - you can buy both dessicated thyroid online as well as order your own blood work. I don't think this is the best way to do it but for many, its all they can do.

Also, just an aside - while I hope to get my Tpo even lower, I personally don't consider 30 or even anything over 20 to be "negative" for Hashi's. Rather I view it as I have an autoimmune disease that is in remission. I suspect if I went back to my former healthy SAD and toxic cosmetics and tap water and swimming and bathing in chlorine, that it would flare right back up again.

Celine its possible (unlikley but possible) especially if you have a clean, Paleo diet & avoid all toxins in your home and on your body, and if you have not had Hashi's for very long - that you can lower your antibodies into the "negative" range & not need thyroid meds indefinitely. I have Hashi's & was able to lower my Tpo Ab from 500 to 30 but the damage is done. My meds a lower than they used to be but I can function w/o thyroid hrt.That's fine though-I'm happy to have done what is pretty rare (get my antibodies done) & low thyroid is so horrible that I have not issue taking the meds

because Hashi's is autoimmune, if you up your iodine your immune system could begin to attack your thyroid and cause even more damage to it or kill it all together. Selenium can do this too. So, cut Chlorine and Flouride, they are damaging it now!

I too have hypo, get away from chlorine and flouride first! These along with iodine are halogens, the first two out number the iodine in our diets. Do this for at least six months before starting to supplement those mentioned above. So, filtered water, change your toothpaste, etc.... you have lower those levels of halogens before the selenium and iodine start to help. Listen to Nora Gegaudas' (Primal Body, Primal Mind) Podcasts on iTunes, she has two episodes about this

As much as I wanted it to work, sadly, it didn't. I had been on Synthroid for 5-6 years, based on high TSH (50's). I had very few symptoms and they never tested anything but TSH and T4. The Synthroid didn't help me, I thought, as I got fatter, on more meds, etc... After I started paleo eating in Jan 2011, I quickly lost 50lbs and got off all meds. In May 2011, i started halfing my 150mcg Synthroid pills. TSH stayed very low for several months (.55). I quit altogether in Sep. In Oct my TSH was 1.5, T4 mid-range. In Nov I noticed my toes getting cold in a warm house and my weight loss completely stalled. In Dec my TSH was 2.5, T4 lower mid-range, toes cold, weight stalled. 5 Jan 2012 I requested full thyroid panel: TSH was 4.2, T4 below range, T3 at bottom of range, no thyroid antibodies present. They didn't check rT3, but I assume it would be non-existant since i had no T4.

I restarted my Synthroid on 10 Jan and have an Endo appt at end of this month. I hope to get a rx for a natural dessicated thyroid (Armour or equiv).

I started supplementing with selenium and iodine (kelp tabs) in December, wish I had started years ago.

What it seems to me is my thyroid is indeed not working well. The Sythroid must have accumulated in my body and it took 3 months to run it out. I have heard that T4 has a long life and T3 an extremely short (6 hours).

Bottom line, if you quit, be sure to test. Hypothyroidism is a bitch and without proper levels you are hosed as far as weight loss and health long term.

I really don't know why I am so against taking Sythroid--if it was sold as a supplement, I'd probably brag about taking it, like my Vit D 10,000IU/day.

Post back and let us know how you make out. I will do the same.

I have had hypothyrodism for about 3 years now and the synthroid has done nothing me other than make my numbers on a lab report change for the better. I also gained more weight and I've been eating the same but exercising more. I decided to go off of it for a while and try natural ways to help my thryoid. Hopefully that will help my weight go back down. I really do not think synthroid works for everyone unfortunately.

There are many causes and types of hypothyroidism. I had low T3 only, suggesting I had a problem with conversion. I also had low progesterone, low vit D, high cholesterol and at that point, about a year and a half of no menstral period. My doc prescribed hormones, cholesterol and thyroid meds which I took for a few weeks (except the cholesterol meds, they went in the trash the moment I got them home). They didn't change the way I felt so I tossed them and started researching.

What I did was vit d, selenium and fish oil supp., increased fiber from plant sources (potatoes, nuts, avocados), ate tons of white potatoes and rice (I was low carb paleo before), stopped exercising completely except for lots of long quiet walks, stopped eating all dairy, even ghee and I did my absolute best to relax.

My cholesterol dropped first. Then I lost my insurance so I don't know what my hormone and thyroid levels are, but about 4 months after I started my plan I got my period and have had it regularly for nine months now and the thyroid symptoms stopped. I gradually stopped vit d and fish oil, being careful to get sunshine and fish. I felt great. Then I tried to stop selenium and I felt good for about a month and then I started to feel the old symptoms again. My mouth, neck and chest would tingle, my hands grew cold and achy, I was jumpy and I was starting to feel like I could sleep at all hours of the day.

I went right back on the selenium and all it took was a few days and the symptoms began to dissipate. So I'll stay on they selenium for the time being.

But you have to figure out what kind of hypothyroidism you have. If you have something like hashimoto's I think you've got to be on meds the rest of your life.

Never say never... I hope to see more stories of success being shared.  I saw a woman w/Hashi's come off her meds after doing quite a bit of functional med protocols as well as heavy metal detox protocols.  She had some very good doctors through this entire process.  She had been on Armour for 15 years prior.  She's doing quite well and it's been over a years since she came off meds.

Have you had your anti-bodies tested to rule out auto-immune?

I have hashimotos and have been off my thyroid meds for 9 months now. Other then going paleo and beign 100% strict on being gluten free I did a food elimination diet for 2 months to find any other foods that I might be sensitive to. Leaky gut is a huge contributor to hashimotos and you should threat this as a priority if your hypothyroid is linked to auto-immune.  Avoiding reactive foods and eatings lots of supportive and anti-imflammatory foods like bone broth and tumeric are important.

After addressing my diet I started seeing an alternative medicine doctor and he helped mostly with my digestion and parasites. The parasites have been a constant problem for me and are directly linked to poor digestion. Anything that stresses your body can trigger an autoimmune reaction and parasites and poor digestion are a stress just as much as reactive foods. I was given a supplement high in vitiman A to suport my intestinal mucosa layer so that my gut flora had more support. At this time I also started having more fermented foods like kefir every day. To help more with the parasite he gave me Grapefruit Seed Extract citricidal. Vitiman D is also a constant suppliment for me.

Having a lot of good quality sleep should also be a focus. Although its always said the average person should get 7- 8 hours sleep I personally function better on closer to 9 hours.

This is at least what I have done in a nut shell. I hope that helps you some too.

Once you have started thyroid, you can change brands, but you should never stop. Natural dessicated thyroid is your best choice unless you are allergic to pork. The next best option is T3 ( Cytomel, levothyronine). Most people have problems with T4 (synthroid, levothyroxine) because their body cannot convert T4 into T3 and they end up with more health problems. Plastics kill the thyroid gland as well as other chemicals we come in contact with every day.

I starated taking a compounded dessicated thryoid (30 mg) about 2.5 months ago. My thyroid number, though on the low end, weren't terrible and I was having a few symptoms but now at night my heart pounds like it's going through my chest and I am having other neuro symptoms.

Two days ago I stopped taking it (so today is day 2). I am also using Vivelle Dot estrogen patches and use progesterone on days 18-28 of my cycle (I am 55) which then causes a period.

In addition, my endo put me on 5 mg. of HC in the morning and then I added an additional 5 mg. at noon and sometimes 2.5 at 4:00 pm.

I hate all of this stuff and look back and have no idea how I got here and it makes me sick to my stomach. I'm trying to learn about it all but just can't wrap my head around it. I hate it!

Right now I'm having pain in both of my feet on the outside of the tops, like I dropped something on them both.

Any ideas and has anyone had success just stopping with the thyroid? Thanks, E

I would like to know how to go about this too, am on desiccated thyroid and my levels are almost the same as I was before I started but tsh 0.0. Doctors say I didn't need them in the first place because my TSH/T4/T3 were low but normal. Endocrinologist prescribed Cytomel as well but that didn't do much and I was told by doctors to not take it. I am scared now that my thyroid is not producing any hormone I will be stuck on them for life. Weight gain is a big issue, the only one I am scared of if going off it. I am already gaining weight for no reason on a low-cal diet with light exercise. I cannot starve like this for life. Have seen two nutritionists, they were of no help.

Same here. Stayed on levothryoid over 20 years although my levels were normal.  My main reason for going on it was tiredness, constipation and my family history. I really think it was a combination of poor diet, a lot of gluten rich foods and having little kids, causing the tiredness.

My cholesterol crept higher and higher, my weight did, too.  I even started getting horrible arthritis-like symptoms.  So, I decided, against my Drs advice, to wean off slowly.  I took half a pill for 2 weeks, then half of a half for 2 weeks.  It took a month, and I only felt a slight uneasy crummy feeling.  Today I am fully off.  Feeling great.  No more arthritus pain, able to go to the gym 5 days a week and then work hard all weekend on my farm.  I am losing inches like mad, gaining muscle and losing weight. I am also GLUTEN free.  Very important for my thyroid and overall health, I believe.  

Do I get tired? Yes...but mainly because I am dirt tired from working so hard!

Good luck!

I had one thyroid removed. I take .1 mg or 100 mcg of thyroid medication daily. I want to get of medication. Is this impossible?

Maria, you need to get on Armour thyroid and make sure the dosage is high enough. Start at the dosage indicated by the blood test, and take it for 6 weeks. If you still feel crumby after 6 weeks, no matter what the blood test says, increase the dosage to the next level, wait another 6 weeks, etc. until you reach a dosage that makes you feel human.

She needs a doctor who knows how to treat thyroid. Unless she is going to order her own blood work. Btw people - you can buy both dessicated thyroid online as well as order your own blood work. I don't think this is the best way to do it but for many, its all they can do.

Be certain to measure iodine levels as levels that are too low, as well as too high, can be an unhderlying cause of hypothyroidism. Most people probably have selenium levels that are too low to support good thyroid function - this can also be measured in serum. As others in this thread have mentioned, check for thyroid related antibodies to make sure the root cause is not an autoimmune condition.

+1 for the iodine recommendation. Also see this article http://chriskresser.com/selenium-the-missing-link-for-treating-hypothyroidism
