Ok I am new here, hi everyone basically I was last year severely anorexic at a bmi of about 11.5 (mad. Mad.) And went all out on recovery because I knew I was going to die. So a year later I am unrecognizable because I am now a bmi of about... 28-29?!!!! The crux of the matter is I have ALOT of hypothyroid symptoms, and this endless weight gain is hideous. I am exhausted 24/7, myxedema, constipation, craving sugar, I have low blood pressure the works. What is weird is I also feel hot/sweaty all the time and my hheart rate is fast if anything. Everything else correlates with hypo. Is that possible? I am going to the doctor soon to get tests, but I have been doing research and it seems taking a careful dose of t3 would be the best thing. I won't until I've been tested obviously! I'm just wondering where you all buy your t3 from and whether it's possible to get one that is vegetarian (gelatin seems to be a common feature). If there isn't I will just have to take the stuff, I can't live like this. Butif anyone has a safe source of t3 I'd love to hear about it. I don't think I'll have to take it forever, apparently hypo is a temporary symptom of anorexia recovery sometimes, but because I was so severe for so long (4 years) I think I might need some extra help in the thyroid department. RReally grateful for your time, TIA!
