I am wondering the experiences of others who go their hormones optimized, as far as body composition.
Brief history of me – I had always been able to lean out and achieve ideal leanness once I turned the switch of dialing in on my diet/exercise. In the last year or 2, I’m carrying more weight than I ever have, and am not able to shed it off like I have been able to in the past, despite the same very structured and tracked diet/exercise.
My labs have shown low free-t, high SHBG, low E2, and underperforming thyroid. I am now on a treatment plan for this.
My questions – Did others being on treatment for hormone optimization see a large difference in change in body composition? How long did it take? Are there are documented before and afters of people before and after hormone optimization? And if my hormones have been unideal for years, may I expect to get even BETTER results than what I was able to achieve previously (even before I was having lesser symptoms)?
Thanks for insights.
