Elliottsmama Posted August 12, 2013 Share Posted August 12, 2013 I am struggling with extreme fatigue and very low body temps. My body temps lowered the first time I did Whole30 and thyroid tests revealed my levels were a little low so I figured it was just me needing a medication change. I completed a Whole30 in May/June and was pretty close to Whole30 in July. Last week I was not on Whole30 and celebrated my son's second birthday with camping and we had some treats. My basal temps went up and I felt like I had enough energy to start exercising again. I did get a stomachache from the gluten, but I was okay. I decided to start another Whole30 this week and I've been dragging and having low temps. To experiment I had non Whole30 food a couple days ago and my temps went up. Went back to Whole30 foods and they plummeted. I'm talking basal temps a full degree lower than my usual. I'm exhausted and struggling to get through the day. I don't believe it's just because I'm in the first week of Whole30. My temps went down last time too. I didn't have enough energy to exercise the first time around either. Although my digestion was better and I did lose weight, I did not experience an energy boost many speak about. I take medication for thyroid disease and low adrenal function. I have for over 6 years. I have never had basal temps this low even prior to my diagnosis years ago. Some things you read suggest low carb is good for thyroid and others say it alters T3 levels. All I know is that each time I start Whole30, my basals drop, but this is more than they did before. Should I add in rice or something? Have a sweet potato with every meal? More fruit? I have no energy. I'm not craving or anything and don't feel super hungry. I'm just exhausted and I have a two year old to chase after. Help!!
