Hi everybody,

My hair has been thinnning for almost a year now. My acne has worsened, too. I'm wondering if this could be from something called Wilson's Temperature Syndrome. My thyroid blood tests have been normal. I do have hashimoto's thyroiditis, though.

Anyone familiar with this syndrome?

I was diagnosed and treated with this many years ago, before I knew I had lyme. My temperature was always a few degrees below 98.6 and I was always cold and fatigued. The treatment lasted only a few months and it did make me feel better. If I recall there was a blood test for one of the reverse thyroid hormones that they don't usually look at. I had other doctors at the time who I remember didn't put much faith in this treatment, but I can't deny that it did give me more energy.

It would be hard to get that dx unless one were seeing an alternative medicine doc. It is generally not recognized by most endocrinologists.

There have been posts about it recently:
http://flash.lymenet.org/scripts/ultimatebb.cgi/topic/1/88785?#000001

Many people, at least anecdotally, have improved using T3 only though. There has been one small uncontrolled study attesting to its benefits...see the post I listed.

I've been trying to get on this protocol. I believe that there is some truth behind it...

Thanks everyone. If anyone else has information about this syndrome, I would be interested in whatever you know.
