Hypothyroidism and lack of recuperation

  1. Thumbs down Hypothyroidism and lack of recuperation


    Total test at 800, e-2 at 25, shbg at 15. Those levels seem ideal to me but I am still having to take 4 to 5 days of recuperation time in between workouts! I am borderline hypothyroid and not taking anything as of yet for it. Could this be a reason for my lack of libidoand poor recovery time from workouts?


  2. I would think so. What do your thyroid panels look like?

  3. Ask your doc if you can take coleus forskohlii. It supposedly stimulates the thyroid.

    lucky,
    I would examine you adrenal profile via cortisol saliva testing and also get with a competent DR who is good at thyroid and adrenals. I would also look at sleep hygiene, nutritional, and also potential hidden toxins. Toxcitiy is so over looked in people its not funny. Heavy metals toxcity is on the rise. I am seeing alot more mercury in my clients/patients.
    I am not a medical Dr, please keep in mind that this answer is for information purposes only, and is not intended to diagnose, treat or replace sound medical advice from your physician or health care provider.
