What is a syndrome? It is a observation of related symptoms/conditions.
It seems that we have a syndrome of hypothyroidism and subclincal hypothyroidism. Some of which seems to be related to iodine deficiency [ID]. So are TRT guys really more prone to iodine deficiency? Maybe we are simply asking the right questions here. If the general population is ID, then we can expect to see that in the TRT population.
The combined effects of low T and some degree of functional hypothyroidism is synergisticly bad, 2+2=5. The major hormone systems affect each other, a hypothalamus/pituitary function is not going to work well when one is hypothyroid. Mental function has compound problems from adrenal, pituitary, thyroid, testicular insufficiencies. Libido is a mental function.
I get frustrated by the collective reading disabilities or lack of concentration that requires that I repeatedly ask for the same info over and over. Lack of focus is a symptom.
I still do not feel like a high T 27 year old should. I had relapsed into a 2 month period of 6-12 beers a day at night, EVERY night drinking period. I have been sober for only 3 days now and I am getting blood work done today around 11am. I suspect my estrogen will be coming back very high even with the .1mg of anastrazole every night. Please take a look at my blood work from 2 months ago and see if you can notice anything of concern.
