Can someone clear up the mechanism of thyroid hormones and exercise for me please?
I keep reading conflicting things. Aside from exercise using up T3, what else can happen? Im thinking in terms of cortisol increase - what happens there? If using T4 (I’m using a tiny bit) what happens to that? Is it of use if you’re a poor converter, or just it convert to rT3 and become a hindrance?
If low levels of T4 are present should you take a little more before exercise or should you take a little more T3? Or neither!
I’ve spent about 4 days now researching this and I’m no further forward. It seems there are some people out there who can exercise and it makes no odds but for others, what worked, or not, for you?
I’m fed up of hearing we can’t exercise. It must be possible once meds are right, so what things do I need to consider?
An edit: if I had high cortisol rather than low, what difference would this make?
And yes, following my previous post regarding taking up more exercise I’m now having issues. Muscle weakness/fatigue/jumpiness back with a vengeance. Feel like I’m full of lead. No I told you so’s please! I will beat this.
