I have finished reading the stickies and I understand the TRT part but am really lagging on the thyroid part. I was on Adrogel off and on for 8yrs and never had much success. I switched over to T injections Aromasin and HCG through an Antiaging Clinic I had a lot of success in fixing the libido, energy, stamina, and over all well-being. I then started to have a discomfort around my adams apple that felt somewhat like a bruise all my local Dr's said I was causing the problem myself with the combo of drugs I was doing even though T and E were at optimal levels. So I have quit the meds for 5 months now and the problem still exists. I have retested and I believe its my Thyroid that is slightly irritated but I don't quite understand the Thyroid.
My new levels are
Test Serum 230(235-836)
E2 15 (7-48)
LH & FSH were both just bellow normal but dont have those in front of me.
Total T4 7.7 (4.5-12)
FT3 2.6 (1.2-4.9)
T3 uptake 34 (24-39)
From what I read in (Stop the Thyroid Maddness) My T3 and T4 are both low and T3 should be in the upper range if not slightly over. Im wanting to start my TRT back up again but want to solve this issue first and I plan to experiment with Armour or Nature Throid to see it helps with the issues.
Im looking for someone else here with experience in the thyroid department to help educate myself before I take the leap.
