I'm 2 months into using T3 only for hypothyroidism and a lot of my symptoms are a lot better. My hands and feet are almost never cold anymore, my hair has stopped falling out in chunks, I'm sleeping better, and I feel like my energy and memory have improved. My heart rate is back in the normal range and my body temperature is also normal (it was often ~35.5 before but now I usually hit 37 during the day). But I still have some GI problems and muscle aches that I'm 99% sure are tied to my thyroid issue, since I've ruled out other causes with the help of doctors, and the symptoms appeared at the same time as my obvious hypothyroid symptoms. My question is has anyone found that trying to diet slowed/stopped their recovery from symptoms? I'm not really trying to lose weight at this point, just attempting to avoid regaining weight I was previously able to lose. It's still trivially easy for me to regain weight, and I'm over 50 pounds from a healthy weight. I can't really afford to buy new clothes right now if I regain all the weight I lost, but I'm worried these symptoms won't go away if I maintain my current calorie level. I'm hoping it will just take more time and I just need to be patient. Does anyone have any experience with this?
