MountainEnigma, you are correct.
To address my Hashimoto's induced Hypothyroidism, For the last 9 years I have followed a strict regimen. I exercise 5 times a week by running 3 -
4.5 miles, and coupling that with 25 - 35 minutes doing martial arts with an 18 lb bar. I eat a lean (non-wheat, non-whey, non-dairy, non-corn,
non-soy, non-peanut) protein early in the day, and a dinner of a lean meat (no beef or chicken) and vegetables:
No cokes, no alcohol, no candy, no breads, no corns, no GMO's of any kind. My stat averages daily, from my years of tracking:
My daily profile 2047 calories consumed
Daily exercise burn 741 calories exercise
Net Calories Daily 1306 calories
My resting pulse is 46 - 50 bpm, and my body temperature is 97.6
This BARELY, just barely....keeps me below statistically obese. It is the only malady I have, yet I cannot get healtcare coverage because of whatever
reason they keep in their sinister data vaults. In the old days when my doctors would say "Cut out sweets, a couple deserts or cokes a week, or pizza
or chips, and the weight will come off"...
I would laugh and pull out my spreadsheet (now my iPad) and reply "Doc, you could not make it 1 month living my life. I dare you to try."
It took me 15 years of steady research and pushing 7 doctors hard, to finally get one to quit listening to the textbook pseudo-science from 1935 - and
to start considering what experienced observers have to say, as credible. (you know there are a LOT of subjects where this appears to be a problem
You MUST have T3 as a primary hormone along with your T4. T3 is not simply a precursor hormone - that is a secondary function. If you are going to
have a healthy life, tell them to shove Synthroid and Levoxly where the sun don't shine, and get a T3/T4 combination.
They do not know what they are talking about, and are just regurgitating what the healthcare quacks and the pharma quacks say will derive the best net
YOU are the expert. Do your diligence, and believe it or not you CAN understand this subject better than a doctor and you can begin to see patterns
and potential solutions.
Good luck my friend.
