Sorry here is previous thread. However since then my free T has went from 0.23 to 2 then back to 1.04, so I thought to start a new thread after I got the recent blood work to see about other hormones too.
I looked for the sticky thread on temperature and thyroid but I couldn’t find any reference to it. Other thyroid stickies, I have gone through some of them.
I want to explain my history a little bit more. There is no test for iodine where I am but my vitamin D, zinc & magnesium have deficiencies. I have some iodine solution that I sometimes paint my skin with for few days when I become moody & unstable in energy, as support only.
Five years ago, I used Kelp for three months, my TSH dropped from 2.2 to 0.5 then it maintained the range of 0.9-1.5 for few years (around the mid range). Now after around five years, it went back up to 2.2 but I do not want to use Kelp again. I think there might be better alternatives.
Above blood work was on 20 or 21 days, my blood pressure was constantly falling to 90/50 which needed some IV injections intervention (4-5 times). I was told to use extra table salt in my food for few months, so I did until my blood pressure went back to normal. I still use table salt in my food but body temperature is 36.7 in morning & my energy level is somehow low. So I might consider supplementation. However , I want to use DHEA this time since I read it support both adrenal and that most low DHEA have hypothyroid.
I mention in my previous thread, I read Dr. Rind research on Optimal Thyroid but I do not know how to use it, it is too complicated.
Just a recap: my main symptoms is low energy and poor gym performance, no low temperature at all. What supplement could benefit alleviate my symptoms? I recently recovered from bipolar depression.
