Hi. I just started taking 2tbsp coconut oil. 1tbsp cook for lunch and 1tbsp for dinner. I cook it both with chicken. During the 2nd day i woke up i feel short breath and heat sensation (hot flashes). 3rd day i tried to jog and my heart feels so heavy because of the shortness of breath. I got tired quicker. I usually jog 20-30min without any problem. I couldn’t continue on the third day so i decided to stop. Is shortness of breath normal? will the symptoms go away?
Note, the reason i decided to take coconut oil is to improve my cholesterol level and testosterone level. Total 2.9 (0.0-5.2) . HDL 0.7 (1.0-1.5). LDL 1.9 (0.0-3.4). Ratio Cholesterol HDL 4.1 (0.0-4.5). Triglycerides 0.70 (0.00-1.60). I also have low testosterone and under active thyroid. I believe low cholesterol can be link with low testosterone.
Testosterone - 13.5 nmol (6.0-30.0) . Optimal around 24
Thyroid T4 - 13.5 nmol (9-25). Optimal around 16.7-23.2
TSH - 1.740 mIU/L (0.4-4.7) Optimal <1.5
T3 (free) - 4.7 (3.5-6.5) . Optimal (3.9-5.2)
