My experience with health monitoring as an athlete

What I have learned by self monitoring for maximum performance with blood testing, under the circumstances of being an athlete with Graves disease (hyperthyroidism) who has had RAI to remove/nuke their thyroid (Radioactive Iodine)

I decided to post this on my own blog as I have thousands of posts on the various forums from over the years which decay and get lost over time. I forget my usernames, and I lose my opinion at that point in time. I also find some of my older forum posts cringeworthy.

Forum posts are kinda dangerous - they are a snapshot of opinion in a given point of time. So, for my own reference, I document my most up to date opinions here.
