I have been reading around the subject of taking thyroid melds as you grow older or starting to take them after 60. I think I have had an under active for many but was always just outside range,just recently decided to self medicate with T3 but now I'm having second thoughts.
As we age our metabolism slows down,which is natures way of preserving our body and extending longevity. In taking thyroid meds we are encouraging our metabolism to speed up so surely this can only be detrimental in the long term. what do others think. Is it too late to start at 61 ?
