back ground info - forgot
i was under the supervision of a well known poster here for a couple months and through extensive testing (nearly every test on the requisition sheet) it was determined that i was in fact hypothyroid and had decreased test levels due to the underactive thyroid
its been about 6 months of supplementing vit C, dessicated beef liver, selenium, vit D, tyrosine, digestive enzymes, basic multi vitamin, zinc, magnesium, calcium and a few others i cant remember to name... any way you get the point.
over the aforementioned time my t3 only increased 5% still below the normal range so i said fuck it ordered some cytomel from india
my mother's side of the family has a history of hypothyroid - 3 aunts are on thyroid meds although my mother is not by they are irish (heard some theories of potato famine causing irish descendants to be more proned to hypothyroidism)
i tried dieting to extreme measures on my own going literally 0 carb (or as close as possible) at 1800 calories a day for months at a time w/ NO carb-ups or cheat meals
i have accepted that i will be taking T3 for the rest of my life and am perfectly fine with that b/c popping a pill every morning is NOTHING compared to feeling like shit for as long as you can remember
thanks for any help
