Hey Patricia, I feel I need to add something about the temperature and thyroid function correlation. I have not run abnormally cold, in fact i tend to run hot, especially when I am sleeping, and i was just diagnosed a couple days ago with hypothyroidism (my thyroid is not releasing enough t4 and t3 to regulate my metabolic rate properly). My TSH levels from the pituitary gland were off the charts. Meaning my brain is trying really hard to get my thyroid to work and it just isnt doing it. Anyway, what im trying to say, is that body temperature is not the best way to determine thyroid function. If you really want to see how your thyroid is doing, then you need a blood test for TSH.
Hope this helps any concerns about thyroid function..
how are u guys doing with the protocol? i maybe join u next week, things are going sooo slow...
