Yes yesm I posted details but they got deleted in the double post I did.
About 2.5 years ago, after training really really hard and eating huge amounts of food, I almost doubled my bodyweight to 235lbs with about 15-17% bodyfst, people did not recognize me anymore.
I assume this caused something to my Thyroid, because I started feeling really tired all of the time, like a bear, so I went to the doctor for checkups.
The TSH was 5.5, the T4 was on the bottom third, and the FT3 was on the upper third.
I had no significant antibodies, nor viruses that may cause a slow thyroid.
Doctor said it was borderline(tsh), and since I was showing some symptoms of hypo, I started taking 100mcg of Eltroxin (going up from 50).
Since then, my TSH has been 2.0 with almost no changes so FT4 of T3 levels.
I was however feeling the difference (which could be from the weightloss oriented routine and diet as I am now 200lbs with 7%) so, I kept on taking the 100mcg dose.
I now have the chance (being off season) to test what happens if I stop taking this again.
This might have been a temporary thyroid issue related to training or diet and I feel I must check if I can go without taking all those pills every morning.
I am wondering what is the best way to go off the 100mcg of T4.
Should I taper down ? Use supplements like Now Thyroid Energy ? Use Clomid ? In what gaps should I take the Endocrine bloodwork from now on ?
More info related to the topic: When I had the high TSH levels, I also had very very low amounts of Sodoium and Iron, I never really took special care of it, Just eating some pickles here and there and increasing egg and meat intake.
I get enough Iodine for sure, and about copper levels - unknown.
I routinely take Mag and Zinc.
What else is related that you need to know to help me kickstart my Thyroid naturally ?
I need to add that I have zero family history of Hypo, so I believe I can pull this off with your help, covering all the factors affecting a tired gland.
I appreciate the support !!!!
