I’ve just been away for a few days up in the alps (so at altitude) for an intense few days of snowboarding. It was an amazing time, but I definitely struggled with a few issues (I’m on 125mcgs of levothyroxine and last time I checked my levels were doing ok):
I got more fatigued than my friends, I got the shakes quite bad, i had trouble sleeping and while trying to sleep my heart was pounding. One night I probably only got 1 hour’s sleep!
About a year ago I visited a nutritionist who advised me that when I get the shakes and insomnia it’s probably due to adrenal issues which can be linked to the hypothyroidism. So do you think this is the issue here?
I was just wondering if anyone on here has any knowledge and experience of this and what the best strategy is for helping it. I know extreme exercise probably isn’t advised, but I will keep booking these trips because it’s what I really enjoy. So I’d be grateful for any advice be it with diet or supplements if that’s possible as I know how knowledgable many of you are.
