I am seeing a new doctor who is sort of a mix b/t conventional (he is an MD) and a little bit alternative. He prescribes both conventional medications and compounded.
I went to him about my osteoporosis b/c I don't want to go on medication yet. He did a ton of blood work and it turns out I have hypothyroidism. It is slight but with my symptoms and family history he wants me to start a compounded T3 medication. However, he also told me that my bone density would go down before going up again. This makes me uncomfortable. Is this true? If so, how much of a drop to expect and how long before it improves?
Thanks for any info. This is all new to me and I'm a little overwhelmed. I also believe my adrenal gland is my main issue and not sure treating my thyroid is really the thing to do as I've read that the adrenal fatigue can cause hypothyroidism and the thyroid might not respond to medication if this is the case. This worries be b/c I do not want to harm my bone density for no reason.
If you've read this far, I appreciate it! Thank you for any replies.
