    Hi Salchichi,

    I have an underactive thyroid and have been on thyroxine for 10 years. This has not affected my suitability for CD, I was able to start with SS and got great results......after initial good losses i have mucked about alot going on and off CD so lack of results these past weeks are totally my fault and nothing to do with CD which works if you work it by the rules!!! So, I don't think my thyroid condition has made me any different from other CD users. Best wishes, hope this helps.

    You will see just as great results as anyone else on CD. I had an underactive thyroid. But in the midst of CD I took tests and the doctor told me I could come off my medication because everything looked great.
    But I had just as great losses as anyone else!
