C, D, B12, - energy

cal, mag, - body pain

I'd just try each one to see if you feel any better. You should ask for a D and B12 test.

I currently take Vid D3 & B12;  I was low on B12 about 3yrs ago so my doctor put me on OTC daily & I was recently low Vid D so put on that daily after the 8 week regime.

I think my defiencies are from my BAD eating habits...

Selinium I understand is also good to help convert T4 into T3.

But also understand that Thyroid is Thyroid.  There is no vitamin that can replace a hormone.  It is just that it is common for people who are hypothyroid also tend to have Vit D & B-12 deficiency.

Vit D deficiency is quite common in our society in general.  I suppose because many of us spend so much time inside in air conditioning etc than humans used to in the past.  it is especially worse in the northern climates and certainly in the winter.  When the sunlight on our skin allows little or no creation of Vit D.  I know in WI my wife takes 2,000 to 4,000 IU's of Vit D year round.  I also take 2,000 IU in the winter and it makes a difference in terms of energy levels.

B-12 is difficult to actually get levels up.  People who are low B-12 often have to get injections to really have a noticeable effect from what I understand.

One final thing.  I personally have to disagree about NOT eating fried chicken as being a good thing.  There is few things better than a good fried chicken dinner!  It's all about moderation.

Darn it.  Now I want some fried chicken for lunch :)
