Hi Deb-
I was so happy to run across your post this afternoon. I have been struggling with candida and thyroid-related issues for a long time without even knowing it. I have candida, that I know, but in working to get my body back in balance I started using kelp as suggested on the Alkaline/Acid Forum. The kelp seems to be helping me a lot, which leads me to think I have thyroid issues. I was tested for thyroid by my primary doc and I tested in the average range, but he put me on a low dose of synchroid and it didn't help so I didn't pursue it. Now I'm mad at myself for that because I have let this go for so long (probably 20 years of having undiagnosed hypothyroidism) because I thought I was so smart and able to treat myself with diet, etc. Now I realize that all this suffering was probably unnecessary, that I should have pursued the thyroid issue long ago instead of giving up so easily. I am going to see a thyroid specialist next week (yayyy) and I am hoping and praying he helps me somewhat. I don't mind doing the candida diet and everything but it would be nice to get help with the underlying problem. My face has been puffy for years, I'm known by some of the less nice students at work as the "ugly ass teacher." I have been lucky enough to still have a sweet husband, etc. but it's sad because I am really an outgoing and friendly person but the fear of being ridiculed has made me much more shy and insecure. Sometimes I don't want to leave the house, but I do. I also have Depression that has gone on and on. I know that my problems are really small compared to a lot of people on this site, but tonight I'm feeling both mad at myself for letting things go so long and cautiously optimistic that the root cause of my problem might get addressed. I'm really sorry for the long post but I guess I had to get it off my chest. Could you please tell me a little about what you went through? Did the low thyroid cause the candida or did the candida cause the low thyroid? Did getting someone to address the thyroid problem help you get better? How long did it take for the thyroid meds to start working? I'll still eat a healthy diet, etc. but am hoping that treating the hypothyroid is part of the solution. Thanks so much and God bless everyone taking their free time to help others. Curezone rocks!
Thanks again,
