Indeed, Carolineq, something seems to be working. I am however slightly worried aobut breaking your fast with nuts (like cashews) as a high protein intaks upon breaking the fast could result in amino acid conversion to carbohydrate, with the release of nitrogen (which turns into ammonia).

You COULD consider giving your thyroid a bit of a holiday (use thyroxine for a week or so) to see if it can do final repairs when not working so hard to produce hormones.. and then see if the TSH drops faster.

Thanks for keeping us posted.
