Does anybody here have any experience or knowledge, anecdotal or otherwise, of exercising without a thyroid?
I am 53, 5 years post TT for Graves, on Levothyroxine 125 per day (T4). I love exercise; cycling, swimming; weight training etc., and I work part-time in a demanding but fun job. I just don't seem to be able to do both on the same day! If I exercise in the morning my brain disappears for the day! I don't exercise after work due to sleep issues. I sense, but this is only a guess, that I 'run out of gas' after working out.
I would really like to hear all your stories/recommendations/views on exercising without a thyroid; particularly any experience of supplementing T4 thyroid replacement therapy with T3 and whether this improved the exercise experience.
Many thanks in advance to all of you.
