Intense training will not much recovery time may be very OK for guys who are otherwise healthy and vital. But may be too much on top of other issues. So heavy training may not be a total cause, but might be a big use on top of other problems. I am often amazed at how some young guys are pushing themselves very hard when they have thyroid and T problems. I guess that some simply have an ability to push through conditions that are disabling for others… but if they crash hard, it may be more severe.
If muscles really hurt, that is too much. But you should feel your muscles after a decent workout.
Ranges for that data?
TSH 3mIU/L (0.2-5.5)
Serum total protein - 72 g/L
T4 16.3 pmol/L
Serum cortisol 616 nmol/L (early morning 170-540)
These are the only bloods I currently have, however my endo has got latest full bloods back and iv asked her to email them me before the consultation next week.
Her notes said - Thyroid is fine but test is low so will need medicating
Im worried shes very keen for TRT and I want to try and fix this naturally… could you help me prepare for my consultation.
Here are my current thoughts.
- What is the cause of my low test - if not primary, would a clomid/hcg restart not be worthwhile before going down TRT route?
- She said thryoid is fine, however my temps are very low… Even if this is not lowering my test id like to have some questions to ask her to further enlighten this issue, any pointers? I know auto immune disease/ Iodine/ Adrenal fatigue.
- If its not primary, what indicators should I be looking out for in bloods? low t3? low LH? (SGHB? protein that is test related?) E2? (high e2 could mean less test turning free test?)
Want to be as prepared and educated as possible for next weeks consultation, iv asked to have my bloods emailed to me and her P/A said she was asking her if its okay to send me them…
