hello everyone, i'm heil, female, 20y/o diagnose w/ thyroid problem, i've been seeking and consulting doctors about my problem but they haven't seem to clarify my condition, they just let me do some series of test and gave me list of medications (synthroid 88) from my latest doctor but after a week of taking those pills, i suffered from severe rashes/hives on my back,neck,face specially on my forehead, after calling my doctor informing him of my allergic reaction, if it is coz i wasn't sure, he told me that the medicine he prescribe wont cause any side effects (the way he act seems like he doesnt even care, like my first doctor) so i stop taking those pills and after a few days/week my rashes/hives was gone, so i decided to cure my thyroid problem in a natural way.. but i wasnt sure if its hypo or hyperthyroidism. please help.. this are my result for thyroid - FT4,FT3
FT4 =result =19.3 pmol/L reference value = 12-22 pmol/L
FT3 =result =4.79pmol/L reference value = 3.1-6.8 pmol/L

plus can u please give me advice on what foods to take & avoid, exercises, things to do, and natural cure for this. please please.. your help would be truly appreciated.
thank you for taking the time to answer this.. i really appreciate it although i have no idea about those test,
before i went to my doctor i felt a slight bump on my neck area, heavy perspiration,anxiety,stress,irritability,mood swing,memory and concentration problems and poor appetite.
my 1st doctor gave me Ciprofloxa, prednisone qualisone 5mg, kamillosan after a month of taking those, i didn't have any allergic reaction but that treatment make no improvement on my health plus it makes me more irritable,moody & hot-headed.. so after that i change my doctor who diagnosed me with diffused thyroid nodular mass probably stage 1, left...
