I seem to have a genetically slow metabolism. Every time I try to eat more I get so sick of it, and my temperature only goes up for a very short period of time. Despite having a very slow metabolism for most of my life, I have been quite healthy otherwise. Even with a temperature in the 97s I rarely get sick, and have had two easy pregnancies. About 5 months after my first child my thyroid went hyper and I lost a lot of weight quickly, but I put it back on when everything stabilized (never took meds). I’m not worried about my weight; I’m a healthy weight for me, I suppose, but what I really dislike is being so cold in the winter.
Does anyone think that taking dessicated thyroid might help? I don’t have insurance or money to go to the doctor, but I feel pretty confident in going off of symptoms (especially since I’ve experienced hyper thyroid and know what that feels like).
