I think Cortisol is because of HPTA shut down, low Dhea- sulphate so low cortisol? possible over training? Since those labs I take 100mg DHES but haven't re tested.
....Labs start breaking the bank....but worth it
fT3 2.46 2.00-3.30
thyroid labs are after IR
they were low fT3 and TSH was higher before I did IR
I have read the sticky's and that is why I did the IR and what has informed me that even though the Dr's are fine with lab results I know they suck.
The Dr.'s discredits the temp. approach to Thyroid test. (I think temps are gold standard)
My walking and mid day temp has hit 98 deg several times (not often) but I'm working pretty hard when it does.
The 95.2's to 96 temps are before I even step out of bed no food no drink etc.
My body temp never is over 96.2 unless walking, working outside ect.
Also even in intense workouts I rarely sweat, tired most of the time, dry skin and have had ED issues for years, etc. It took me 3 Dr's to find one that understands TRT. They all steer away from optimizing the thyroid.
If I can loose 60# of fat the labs would be different I know. But 1 year of no bullshit hard core training and a diet to be proud of and (according to hydro test) I've lost 11# fat. For a 400# guy That's not a good result. on 1ml T (200mg) a week (.5ml x 2) and training hard I've hit numbers on bench, squat, deads that I haven't seen since my competition powerlifting days 20 years ago, THAT's Great, but my knees, stamina etc. can't do 26-30% body fat.
I train with some hard core competitor's who say T4 supplementation is prob next step. I really want a Dr on board with that though I'm 48 and not as care free as I once was. supply is pretty trustworthy but still pharm. grade is true blue and predictable.
