so i bet you get this a LOT.
i was just evaluated with a blood test that i have hypothyroidism. both my parents have it, so i expected i would too.
its pretty low, at a 6, so im looking at natural alternatives to maintain it, since i nurse and dont want to have my supply decrease. i go back in a couple months for another blood test to check levels. if its high, i'll be on meds (hopefully those safe for BFing).
so i was reading about doing yoga, taking iodine, etc. i also read about using coconut oil.
has anyone use coconut oil to help maintain it?
also, i LOVE broccoli, cauliflower, spinach, beans. i read those are bad and to stay away completely from one site. another one told me to stay away, but if eating them DOES happen, to have them cooked. what's correct?
also, i have a dairy intolerance. i was gonna go soy through wic, but soy is something to stay away from as well. if i get a drs note, would wic substitute for coconut milk or rice milk or something else?
anyone with alternative remedies, i would love your input as well.
