I was told yesterday I have hypothyroid, I have little to know real understanding but a basic idea like a nagging wife the pituity gland asking about a lightbulb being changed over and over and im the thyroid glad just popping my headphones in and ignoring her... lol...
Anyways the numbers I had been given yesterday not sure how to interpret them but my TSH on monday was 126? (If thats how its supposed to be presented?) Wedbesday it had raised to in excess of 150 which had been described to me as very high... My testosterone levels had dropped massively to 7.0 which is very low, along with estrogen levels... however you would never have thought that seeing me in the gym the night before i was in beast mode!!! I have now been advised im to take 3 - 4 weeks off to allow the meds to settle into my body as my consultant is concerned with such elevated levels I could risk further complications mainly concerning my heart...?
Any advice or back ground info on this illness, would be great... Once I have allowed the meds to work into the body and thyroid is settled and sorted can I go ham again in the gym or are my heavy lifting days over?
Are my body building days over?
It is quite literally my source of happiness I dont want to sit around and pack on the pounds...
Once my levels are sorted will my other hormone levels start to settle to?
How can this happen and I didnt even know this was happening?
I have so many questions probably best put into another post really but any advice would be great...
Thanks in advance.
