    Possible Thyroid problem?


    Is it possible for males to have thyroid problems? I assume it is. What are the symptoms? Also, symptoms of low test? Thanks.

    good luck

    Thanks for posting. My question is pretty vague. I've been feeling lethargic/tired/mood swings/rapid weight gain/ etc. for months now. I'll go get some bloodwork done tomorrow.

    another way to tell....the way my dr told me....take a sip of water, lean your head back and when you swallow feel your throat...lumps, (not adams apple)......I do it from time to time because i can feel my tumors it sounds weird but works.....

    10x body weight in cals a day (so around 2000 to 2150), 50/30/20 protein, carb, fat ratio.

    Only lean foods. Chicken Breast, Tuna, White Fish, etc. Whole grain carbs (brown rice).

    Also add udo's choice oil (all 3 omegas - EFAs).

    Weights 3-4x a week. Cardio 5x a week. Cardio (bike, running, etc.) 30-40 min. with elevated
    pulse of 155 bps.

    Weights are and always have been heavy. Rep range of 8-10.

    Haven't lost a pound, actually gained. Which isn't a problem, except for the fact that it is fat
    (increase waist size). Any ideas?

    Take your temperature first thing immediately upon rising in the morning.

    You could do a google for hypothyroid. There is a ton of info on it out there. Some symptoms are cold extremeties, low body temperature, thining eye brows, just to name a couple.
