Thank you guys for giving serious responses. Given some sections of this sites forums I half expected trolling and bs answers
I didn't really think to try to "cover up" the thyroid issues, although I suppose I wrote it like that. I more just figured that by taking the Test it would help muscle gains and reduce fat to the point of making the messed up thyroid not as big of an issue, but I realize it would still be there. I was linked to stopthethyroidmadness and learned that being prescribed TSH is ~pointless but t4 is what is helpful, is this something most doctors would be willing to prescribe to someone in my position and something that is likely to help these issues?
for the record, TSH was around 3.1 but ferritin was around 91 which I believe is fairly high and therefore somewhat indicative of not having a thyroid issue? Also even though 3.1 is high it was "in range" for the lab so I imagine it would be hard to get a thyroid prescription for that? This happened to be after a very high carb day, I don't know if increases in thyroid due to higher carb intake occur that quickly but just though I'd put that out there.
Admittedly I have done significantly less research on thyroid issues compared to AAS. Also in the times I've measured my temp (generally during cuts though) it has been around 97.4 or so on average with the thermometer I used. Unfortunately neither of the 2 blood tests I've had in the last year had cortisol tested.
Interesting. I will be honest, the reason I am looking for Test/Thyroid meds/etc is for better muscle:fat gains. Although I would like not feeling so tired all the time (I need a nap almost every day) I am really seeking this out for the better gains. If Thyroid meds would do this indirectly by lowering cortisol and increasing Test then that is great, especially since it would be regulated by a doctor. I have not read about thyroid meds doing this to a significant degree
By the way, just saw this quote of yours:
I don't think I have ADD, I do very well in school, but I am constantly zoning out not being able to concentrate, etc. Could just be boring subject matter lol but something that I've noticed.
