Ping: Suson on Chromium and Hypothyrodism

  1. Susan,

    Since I had it on hand, I took 1,200 mg. of Chromium picolinate late
    last night. Woke up about 2 hours later hot and sweating and the room
    was not hot. Slightly elevated heart rate, but not bad...

    I normally only take 400 mg.

    I'll keep trying that dosage for a few days (but won't take it when I
    have to sleep!) and test T4 and TSH again in a few days and let you know
    what happens.

    You may have just helped me more than you know...... ;-)

    TIA if this works out!

    My last TSH was still elevated. Unfortunately, our lab does not test for
    T3. I have to PAY for that. <G> I can, however, do a T3 uptake.

    You have no idea how many times I've been tempted to take DNP.......
    I have too many responsibilities tho' to accidently commit suicide by
    being stupid.
