An endo I was seeing said my TSH, T4, and T3 were technically in the normal range. T3 is at the bottom end. I checked bloodwork from a year ago before the worst of my symptoms hit me, and T3 is 81 (74-181). At that time the doc said I was normal. This was the best I felt in my life, however I still thought I had hashimoto's, but I had no antibodies present, or very little. In any case fast forward to now. 2 weeks ago, under the advice of my endo I began using Iodoral, 1 tablet a day. I also added in some tyrosine. This is when I thought I figured everything. I was starting to feel almost normal. I woke up one morning with consistent energy and immediately did some weight lifting, went the rest of the day with consistent energy, and couldn't even sleep until 1 AM. After a week, the effects seemed to be wearing off, although I cannot be sure. Again, under the advice of my endo, I kept taking iodoral, but added 1 grain Armour. I promptly began feeling hypothyroid, terrible, cold, no energy. Everything came back. I stopped it immediately the next day. However, symptoms continued to persist, even as I took Iodine. Hair loss started occurring, so I dropped the Iodine, then the hair loss slowed down. I can't tell which one of the two was causing this. I was taking iodine, 12.5 mg iodoral, ATP cofactors, 1/2 tsp celtic salt, and 200 mg selenium based on the STTM protocol. In any case, 1 week after stopping the Armour, I decided to try it again. I took 1 grain, and felt like I was on mars. I didn't sleep well that night, and for the last few days I've had terrible hypo symptoms. I was trying to have a good time with a friend but I felt horrible, I could not enjoy myself and felt very cold. The next day I woke up sick to my stomach. Now, 5 days later, my energy is marginally better. Today is the first day I did not wake up feeling cold, although this afternoon my hands went cold again. I do feel very warm in the middle of the night. The two changes I made yesterday were to do weight lifting and cardio (moderate), and I did not sleep that well. Sometimes when I don't sleep well I have more energy, which makes no sense. For the last two days my temperature has averaged 97.5, and 97.4 which is pretty bad. I originally thought I had an adrenal issue, which based on my lab results, I can't tell, but I now know for sure it's thyroid. I'm planning to try Iodoral again, I'm just scared it will cause the drastic hairloss. STTM seems to suggest hairloss is not from iodine, but from not having nessasary cofactors with the iodine, like selenium. There were 4-5 days I ate brazil nuts, so that may have been insufficient selenium. By the way, here is my cortisol saliva results: http://curezone.com/aa/?1067980 I'm have an appointment with Dr Rind on August 4th. I'm hoping he may be able to shed more light on my situation.
