ARK said:Also, keep in mind that is Barnes and not Peat. I think that Barnes says:
Barnes says later " And there is no risk of excessive thyroid dosage as long as basal temperature does not exceed 98.2."He also says that the thyroid gland will not decrease its normal function unless basal temp is maintained for some time above the upper limit of normal." Also, remember - this is underarm temp which would be lower than an oral reading. So I believe that the oral reading is around 98.6 and he is saying we would have to stay above that for some time to effect function.
ARK, to digress a little bit,
I know you're a Peat practitioner of some sort:
do you know how to do that Achilles Reflex Test Peat extolls?
I want someone to do that to me.
I asked my slightly hip, somewhat alternative doc
about reflexes and hypothyroidism,
but he did the tests where you strike the knee and the upper forearm...
