The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    TSH

    My TSH level is 2.5..... which apparently is WNL, but it is incredibly hard for me to lose weight without doing crazy amounts of cardio and super-contest strict nutrition, so.... my question is... would synthroid help?

    Look p the NACB laboratory support for the diagnosis and monitoring of thyroid disease.

    2.5 is high normal. Get your FREE T3 and FREE T4 tested. Insist upon it and then find yourself a good endo.

    You don't know enough from just the TSH. You need to test FREE T3, FREE T4, antibodies (for Hashimoto's autoimmune disease, I understand this is the most common cause of hypo-T in females) and ferritin.

    What calories are you running? How much cardio? What do you weigh and what, roughly is your bodyfat%? Hare heavy are you lifting (what do you squat?), and are you on the pill? How long have you been dieting on the calories you're running?
