Deb, Im glad things are working out for you. However, I had a case of hypothyroidism induced by candida. Despite normal thyroid hormone levels, I had all the symptoms of hypothyroidism. I finally found a doctot that would prescribe Synthoid, and my condition improved. I am not completely cured, but I have the candida well under control. As the candida was controlled my hypothryroid symptoms lessened. I am now off Synthoid completely. So, I beleive that candida effects almost everyone somewhat differently. Unfortunately, there is no road map to recovery that everyone can follow.
