Hello,
I'm new to the forum and was wondering has anyone got problems with thyroid, ALP high readings,
I recently had a blood test that shows ALP 374, T4 51.2 TSH< 0,01, T30.4.
Yes I know this is bad, I'm currently seeing a Chinese Herbalist, and in the process of trying to find a Natural Endocrine Doctor which I might add is very hard to find, I'm in Australia if anyone knows of one I'd love to hear from you.
It has been suggested to me that I take D3 tablets, selenium, change diet etc, it's all so confusing anyone with information advice would be greatly appreciated.

Could you explain your numbers a tad more in depth? Explain how low these are and where you would like them.

I have been researching T3 and T4 additions. I did not know if that was too far off your "herbal chart". I know some do not prefer mod med... The only endo I know in US that is (popular) conventionally trained yet uses alt med is Andrew Weil out of California. May be worth a shot to call there and ask for suggestions.

Thanks and welcome.

Many of us here are hypothyroid, and we have an excellent protocol for supplementation which cures the problem (usually).  But for hyperthyroidism, the situation is much less clear.  The only supplement I know of which seems to help is Acetyl-L-Carnitine.

Hi,

I am new person here on the forum. I could not find a exact topic.

My partner has been suffering from hyperthyroidism and recently started taking D3 vitamine together with K2 complex vitamin and calcium+magnesium.

Starting from 10 000 IU and currently raising to 40 000 IU.

I can not find any information about what D3 dose should be ideal.

I would appreciate any help.

best regards

Robert

Welcome to the Forums, Robsont.

If the doses you list are for vitamin D, they are high.  Only a blood test will determine the right dose for your partner.

Vitamin D3 is certainly good advice, 1000 IU per 12 kg body weight and day, magnesium and Vitamin K2 in addition. To cope with latent hyperthyreoidism, Thiamine may be helpful, Benfotiamine best, as thiamine deficiency may be unmasked by thyroid supplementation or hyperthyroidism and may lead to similar symptoms as hyo- or hyperthyroidism (depression, stenocardia, adynamia, exhaustion..)
