I have had several previous posts before concerning my issues and problems(low t at 20) asking for help and I looked right through the obvious answer that KSman posted. I never thought about iodine because I always assumed it was processed foods and restaurants too until I read up. Then I realized, ever since I broke my arm when I was 11, I stopped putting salt on my food almost entirely. So no iodine hardly at all which could possibly explain a lot of symptoms.
Regardless, I started taking J. Crows Lugol’s iodine solution 2% about 4-6 weeks ago. I have been regularly taking arimidex at a dose of .2-.25 mg ever 3-4 days as I have lowered the dose significantly because I feel I killed my E too much. I started the adex because my T was quite low with high E and very low libido. Consistently my body temperatures were in the low 96s in the morning and typically reached a high of 97.3 tops. After supplementing about 4-15 drops a day for most days(researched at 2.5mg a drop?), I have noticed major changes since.
Im not sure if its from the iodine alone or a combination of effects because I cut down the adex, haven’t been taking as many of my prescribed adderall, and I have been taking astragalus(adrenal fatigue?) as well as life extensions natural prostate(helps prostate and flow, suppose to help MPB and reduce acne via DHT inhibitors that are proven). Most notably, my libido has greatly increased, hair feels thicker, more random and nocturnal wood, I have started stuttering a lot less for some reason, at first less acne, but now more(possibly from steam and grease at work), and my temperature did increase to some degree.
Now when I was up I am normally up to mid-high 96s, reach up to 98 at rest, and the highest I reach is 98.5 right after exercise. I was expecting my temperature to keep rising but it seems to have leveled out. One last thing of note is my protein count in my blood has increased significantly averaging around 7-7.4 instead of 5.7-6.3(the range they take for donations is 6-9). This tells me that my T has definitely increased and my E has been improved.
My question is what do you think will continue to happen, what caused it to happen the most, and will my temperatures ever return to normal?
