    I've been incorporating some peat stuff in my diet (lots more OJ, fruit, honey, PUFA restriction, milk, etc.) and my temps have improved a ton. My pulse has come up slightly it was averaging aroudn 56, and now is up around 60.

    It's been a couple months, and I haven't seen much progress on pulse recently.

    Should I consider thyroid?

    Temps probably average 98.6 now, i take before meal and 1 hour after. Can go as high as 99 in the afternoon.

    Do you exercise? Exercise can often keep the pulse low...

    I do, but I haven't for the past 6 weeks due to injury.

    I should add that hypothyroid symptoms have improved, but still exist.

    There are old threads on low pulse. I remember RP mentioning that increasing temperature
    is easier and quick and increasing pulse takes some time. Even with good thyroid level
    hormone may not be able to work properly on cells due to presence of PUFA. It takes about
    4 years to completely replace PUFA but things should continuously get better with
    decreased PUFA storage. He also mentioned in Josh Rubin's "Thyroid" interview that
    low pulse rate is sign of low testosterone and high estrogen. Though thyroid
    indirectly opposes estrogen by increasing progesterone, one needs vitamin A
    to make progesterone from cholesterol. You need to have good level of cholesterol for that.
    A healthy liver detoxify all the estrogen that goes through it. For healthy liver you need
    thyroid support, 80 grams protein, good blood sugar level and
    glycogen storage, B vitamins etc .
    Carrot salad helps a lot with keeping estrogen level in check.
    Starch and soluble fiber feed bad bacteria, which increases endotoxin.
    This causes excess burden on liver.

    I am much the same. I had some pulse increases initially in the first few months of adding thyroid (adrenaline?) where I got into the 70s on a regular basis, but now I am back to a resting pulse of about 56-64. My pulse has always been on the low side. I always thought it was because I am quite mellow and relaxed, and it dropped to about 52 when I used to exercise a lot. I have been on thyroid for six months or so now I think.

    My temps are much better though, and I am feeling extraordinary if I compare to a year or two ago.

    So the pulse doesn't worry me too much.
