  • You have to have a TSH, free T4 and free T3 blood test to see if you truly have a thyroid problem. You are describing some signs of hypothyroidism, and some signs of hyperthyroidism. I’m 22, 100% Irish, and have thyroid cancer…. however, I’ve never heard of a correlation between being Irish and Thyroid problems. It might be your thyroid, but it could be something else. I’d say go to your doctor for a check up.

  • It could be, but it could be a number of things. You should go have some tests run by your family doctor, and I also suggest finding a good holistic doctor. A lot of that could also be from gluten sensitivity, diabetes, hypoglycemia, vitamin deficiencies, etc. (You’d be amazed what dietary intoleraces can do to you.) You should definitely a full panel of bloodwork done by your medical doctor, then have a thorough exam by a holistic doctor for best results. Come at it from both sides to A) find out what it is and B) how to best treat it. A lot of drugs just treat symptoms but not what’s causing the issue in the first place. The digestion issues you mentioned, plus the ancestry, makes me think dietary issues, food intolerances. (And if it is thyroid, gluten is a major culprit there, as well.) Do some research on gluten for your mom, at least, for sure. Eating gluten can cause thyroid tissue damage for several months following. Have her go off it for 3-4 months totally, just to see if she feels better. You could try that too, to check yourself out.
