Late night and weight loss

Hi all, I read in another post that TSH is lower in the night. I guess that is why I feel like a new person at night and given the chance I can stay up until the wee hours of the morning.My question is if TSH is good at night is it better to work out at night or really early in the morning? I try to work out at 5:30pm everyday and I find that I am soo tired and not feeling well that I am not going. Just recently I have been comming home at 4:30pm and laying down because I am so tired and dont feel good. I rest until 7:30pm or so and then get up like there is nothing wrong. This is becoming a problem to me because I need to get this hypoT weight off.

Does anyone else have this problem?
My recent TSH was 5.16 but I think that it is getting wores. I am feeling wores anyway!!

Please anyone give me advice on losing weight with hypoT if you can.

Thank you

Yup! Yet another thing we have in common.

I feel like dead *** during the day, come 9-10pm, I want to work out, but don't because I want to sleep decently.

Damn it sucks to be us!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Re: Late night and weight loss

Ok, guys, this is just my humble opinion about feeling better at night. I have recently heard, and it makes sense to me, that when your thyroid hormones are low, your adrenals kick in to compensate...but when they do, you can get palpitations (because they are working so hard) and fatigue...that is adrenal you ask, what does this have to do with anything? Well, one of the symptoms of adrenal fatigue is feeling better at night....So the moral of the story is...maybe we all need more thyroid meds so our thyroid is functioning better, our adrenals are not so stressed, and we will feel not only better at night, but during the day as well? Does my logic make any sense? Well, off to docs tomorrow to get Armour...hope it helps!

Sadfreek I am going to call you shadow from now on!! LOL

Pixiek good luck tomorrow at the Dr. I hope they give you what you need. What you said makes scence but why at night. I feel like an owl!!! Even though I feel better I still get anxiety at night. I think that if i bite my nails anymore today I am going to go insane!! And I am guessing the adrenal fatigue is another part of this wonderful illness that has taken over our lifes!! Let us know if Armour is working for you!!

Thanks for the reply

Re: Late night and weight loss

Actually, TSH is higher at night. The pituitary begins releasing it in spurts around 9:00 p.m., and it continues till early morning when it tapers off. But since TSH has no relationship at all to the way a person feels, that's irrelevant.
The thing that makes a difference in the way you feel is the cellular level of thyroid hormones... not the pituitary one. If you have more energy at night, it's a complex matter of the way your thyroid hormones affect the generation of energy by your metabolism... or, your "body clock", in simple terms.
