I have been t-tapping on and off for about 1 year. I am starting on a 4 day a week plan now because I already see a trainer 2 days a week and I am training for a half marathon. So what's the problem? My thyroid. I have been hypothryoid since 1996. The values of TSH were a little crazy the first year and settled down until I had my 2 full term pregnancies. I recently had a contrast dye test (I am allergic to contrast dye) and had an analphylatic shock reaction.
I saw my endo yesterday and we reviewed my TSH numbers for the past 6 years. They have been all over the place. We know where I feel best with my TSH (2.5), but right now, I am HYPERthyroid (he believes the contrast dye test, which is full of iodine, caused this). He also believes that most of my TSH is coming from the pharmacy and my thyroid has stopped producing much given my levels on different doses.
I am going to do BWO+ 4 days a week (T,W,F,Su) and hoe downs after meals if possible. I see my trainer on Mondays and Thursdays and I run Sat/sun/Fri. I am trying to not overdo things and move to a higher protein diet as well.
How will the t-tapp affect the thyroid? Is there a better time of the day to do this? Right now, I fit it in where I can (I have a job, and 2 kids). Are there exercises that are recommended from the total workout or other workouts that will help regulate the thyroid? Or am I just screwed because we're not even sure my thyroid is working.
Thanks in advance for anyhelp.
