    No, it's not that low (will post my blood work today or tomorrow). He's a CFS doctor and offers more unconventional treatments. From what I've read here iron infusion seems preferable to a supplement because the latter can lead to bacterial overgrowth.

    Hi @Diddleum! You mention having dabbled with Peat ideas for years, did this include thyroid supplementation? I ask because so much of what you wrote screams thyroid (and adrenals) to me, but I won't waste your time with a long post if you've already experimented with it.

    What???
    He, just like that, put you on glucophage (metformin) because you told him you're, supposedly, insulin resistant???[/QUOTE]

    he ran a few blood tests like c reactive protein , he may of done insulin but I don’t remember... neither result was significant and yeah whacked me on metformin. Did nothing but make me constipated...

    Hello,

    My temps pulse and bloods are pretty good but yeah I’ve tried taking thyroid.

    It is like eating sugar pills, I get a little pulse temp increase the first few doses but then they just do nothing and I can take 400mcg t3 and it does absolutely nothing!

    Yes that is true. Some people have hard time tolerating oral iron anyway. I never had a problem. If you suffer from CFS I would actually give it a try. Then you know. Like you said there’s many effective ways to de-iron yourself if you wish to do so.

    Did you ever try low doses when starting on T3 ? What was the start dose ?

    It sounds like your system is shut down. Usually it is cortisol which is switched off. In CF patients this is quite common.

    Do you go to bed at normal times and wake at a usual time. Sleeping before 11pm and waking at 7-8am is very important. A regular routine is a must.

    Ever tried prednisolone to help with adrenal fatigue ?

    Have you seen Dr Myhills website ? She is a CFS specialist and is based in Wales. She has some really good info on her website.

    Started off petrified of t3 sane as test. I started with a nibble of a 10mcg tablet and worked up until
    It did nothing, like nothing at all.

    same with test, I went up to bodybuilder like levels and felt nothing.

    my cortisol always measures as top of range or slightly above and follows a healthy daily curve. If anything my cortisol is too high so I don’t think I should be supplementing it. I supplemented liquorice once to increase it and I felt awful.

    im familiar with my hill and followed a diet she reccomend a other the years but nothing really.

    Well, don't know what to say..... the world has gone mad....
    You don't say if you still take it, I presume not. I lack deep knowledge of it, but generally people here, are trying to get off it, not to get ON, you know...

    UPDATE

    36.4C 68bpm

    Woke feeling normal/***t. Woke once in the night to urinate about 4am. Had some nocturnal boners.

    Temp dropped a point. Eat high protein yestarday but a bit less sugar. Slept in just my under shorts. Eat more sugar today. Keep protein high. Dress a bit warmer in bed.

    memantine made me feel a little spaced out last night. Hard to say if it was positive or negative. Will re dose after I’ve done my work for the day.

    I am not sure what is the Peat way to treat diabetes (type 2). Probably PUFA depletion. However, type 2 diabetes is easily put in remission by a Ketogenic Diet. You can not know this in 2020. It's unnacceptable.

    Keto does not solve insulin resistance, and will make it worse. Diabetes is caused by elevated free fatty acids and can be treated with things like aspirin, niacinamide, thyroid, progesterone

    It will quickly bring HBA1C and fasting blood glucose down to safe levels, though.

    Estrogen estrogen estrogen

    thinking much about estrogen and my sky high shbg and estrogen symptoms.

    Im very lean and don’t store fat at all. Most people can store excess estrogen as fat? Could gat storage act as a sort of buffer to estrogen clearance ? Similarly shbg is protective and perhaps a buffer to estrogen clearance? Mine is sky high maybe as I dont store fat and my thyroid and metabolism is real good.

    also over the Xmas period I have been sitting around as I’ve had no work. My symptoms have been worse. Looking back my worst times have been when I had a desk job and sedantry.

    im wondering the importance of movement or exercise for estrogen removal?! There’s plenty of studies saying movement and exercise are critical to estrogen metabolism.

    I feel worse when I eat carbs usually. I suspect my thyroid is good. A low carb diet quitens most of my bad symptoms. Perhaps eating carbs ramps up my metabolism creating more steroid hormones but more critically adding to the pile of toxic estrogen that I’m just not clearing?

    So I am walking while I write this, I have a cleaning job after and I’ll hit the gym for some light exercise till bed time.

    the theory makes sense to me ?

    I’m focusing on estrogen clearance before I try and push metabolism.

    Having a desk, corporate job is the worst for health. Lack of freedom, lack of sunlight in the morning, sitting indoor, not enough oxygen. Oh boy, I'm so gonna leave it behind.

    Speculating here on my last post but maybe fat gain is mainly the body storing excess estrogen?

    plenty of healthy happy fatter people about is that because there bodies can store excess estrogen with fat rather than let it circulate?
