I recently had a full blood and saliva panel done to determine what has been causing my many health issues. The NMD found that I was showing signs of hypothyroidism ( my TSH was 3.200, Triiodothyronine was 2.8, and the T4 was 1.22. I also was showing low progesterone levels (39.02) and DHEA (67.81). She prescribed T3 and T4, as well as progesterone. I am concerned about taking the thyroid meds after reading up on it and the progesterone because my mother had hormone dominant breast cancer at age 59. I haven't been taking the meds, but instead have been focused on my anemia, vitamin d deficiency, etc. I want to follow the plan to improve my health, but don't want to take something that could lead to more serious issues. Do I have valid concerns? I just want to feel better!
