very low TSH high T4 on LCHF

hello all

I been on lchf for 20 months, the reason i went lchf was to heal my fatty liver (diagnosed on ultrasound)

my health status is..hep c (approx 17 years)
gastritis since 2006 (duodenum and stomach)
high blood pressure

im on meds for hbp
a recent blood panel revealed i had thyroid T4 level of 26 (normal range 10.00 - 22.00)
and TSH of 0.01 (normal range 0.30 - 5.50) almost non existent

I take so many supplements i wouldnt know if that would be the cause or if my woe is making my thyroid levels go high, i have started introducing carb nights monthly. I eat approx 50grams daily of low starch carbs (broccoli, cauliflower, spinach etc)

currently doing paragon parasite cleanse (suggested by someone on curezone for gastritis symptoms)
doing smartdrugs - alternating modafinil, aniracetam, noopept, piracetam (since taking smart drugs my regular brain fog issues have gone)
current supplements l-carnitine, co-q10, d-ribose, taurine, upgraded aging capsules, upgraded collegen, sugar free whey powder, 1ts resistant starch, vit c, vit d (when no sun), selenium, lugols iodine, upgraded glutathione
supplements for gastritis - cranberry, zinc carnosine, dgl, l-glutamine, magnesium chlorate

drugs - amlodipine 10mg candersarten 4mg (blood pressure meds) low dose naltrexone 3mg (private script) omeprazole 20mg as needed

i do bpc first thing in the morning with a smart drug and other supplements, i have pain in my side all the time which i manage with raw ginger, supplements mentioned all ready and omeprazole when i need it. Just wanted to get peoples feedback mainly on how I can get my thyroid levels back to normal without medication.

other wellness stuff i do ASEA, PEMF (full body mat), Earthing, table inversion, exercise most days,

thx

Luigi

Were your lab tests ordered by a physician?

If so, what did that doctor say about your thyroid numbers?

Your very low TSH could be a sign of hyperthyroid or incipient Graves' disease, but that requires diagnosis by a physician--not just some numbers.

Nevertheless, you can't 'fix' your thyroid with nutrition. Any derangement in the thyroid requires some Rx or other medical intervention.

Hep C nurse specialist ordered the test including other markers lipids, liver etc, she said I need to follow up and see my GP, I've booked a visit for next week, gonna ask repeat test include adrenals, my guess is my inflammation is driving cortisol sky high
