I've recently found out that I have some serious thyroid problems. I suffer from hypothyroid. despite this I remain reasonably lean thanks to proper diet/nutrition. Fat loss has always been super slow for me. What took most of my friends weeks, took me months. I figured it was crappy Genetics. I've always wondered about having thyroid problems because my mom had it and it is hereditary. Anyways, I haven't gotten the blood results back yet, but i'm pretty sure it's a Thyroid problem. I have about 90% of the symptoms.
Anyways before I get the tests back I decided to do a small Original T2 cycle. To my surprise i've been on it about a week and a half and i'm noticing big time improvements in my symptoms. Fat loss speeding up, not as depressed, etc.
One of the biggest things i've noticed while on T2 is that I don't fatigue as early as i used to. I can jog for longer periods of time without getting tired. Before I would be dying after 12 minutes of jogging! I'm not even kidding. It's like I would not be able to catch my breath. It's as if oxygen wasn't getting into my body properly.
Another huge benefit has been with my hair. It's getting Extremely thick! It's growing out like mad. I didn't know my hair could get this thick! It appears as though the hypothyroid problem has been making my hair fall out rapidly.
I'm going to call my doctor tomorrow and see if my tests are back. It would be great to go on a drug routine to fix all these problems. Thyroid problems are the worst! I believe they hinder mass gains too (even if hypothyroid, not just hyperthyroid) because it's an autoimmune disease.
Anyways, I wanted to start a thyroid thread where anyone can post any info about the thyroid, pertaining to everyday life and training.
I'm very new to all this information and am learning as much as possible. Of course a thread like this would help me and others.
