I've read about it and don't know what to think to be honest. I've recently suffered with extreme cold and temperature of 32.5 at times. I never get above 36 even if I feel normal. This happened after my T3 was stopped. I've added it back in and it's improved so there is a definite connection with T3.

Yes, I take T4 too. I was sent underactive because I had Radioactive iodine ablation. My hair has thinned but I did have a thick mop before so it's not so noticeable on me. I also have the faulty D102 gene.

I am a water engineer and i have several customers with 'wilsons' which to me is a toxicity of copper, copper builds up in the system and becomes life threatening, i make and fit filters that remove the copper from utility water form them so it is safe for them to drink, all our water comes through copper pipes and it leaches into the water so you can imagine, its not good but it is extremely rare as far as i know.

The other wilsons to do with temps is an odd one to me, even when i am feeling great my temp averages 35.4 i often go as low as 34 my dr was never concerned! it can have 2 effects on me, im either cold to the bone teeth chattering no matter how hot the environment and im sunbathing in tracksuit and duvet in the garden when it is 30+ degrees :) but it doesnt happen often.

I have nearly always felt too hot for as long as i can remember, i am out walking doggy in winter in tshirt. It was explained to me that my core was so cold almost hypothermic that externally it felt ok to me...my dr said it wasnt possible to be warm and hypo lol oooops thats another little box i dont fit into!

I've seen a few people mention Wilson's here before. Unfortunately he was discredited after a patient he was treating died (I believe from a heart attack) as a direct result of his experimental treatment. The syndrome is therefore widely discredited.

Jump1,

As Cooper27 says, Wilson's Temperature Syndrome is not a medically recognised condition and Denis Wilson was struck off after a patient using his high T3 protocol had a heart attack and died.

Haven't done my temps for ages I started doing then because I suspected high cortisol, I was right! My temps were 35.2 average about 35.8

My resent tsh was 1.45 the doc took it on himself to not bother with t4 and t3 as he said my tsh was normal it's been suppressed for a lot of years, but I take thyroid s now, and doc should be testing t3 if I'm taking medication with t3 in it, I see Endo in a few weeks so he can do them
