I'm no expert, but I've been on thyroid supplementation for a billion years,
not feel any ill effects doing ultras.. even if I miss a dose or two during
something like Hardrock. (actually, I think that's probably the LEAST of
my worries out there!)
Surely if you have no thyroid, then you are taking some supplements to bring
the levels up to what they should be. If so, then it stands to reason that
your body will function as normal.
At any rate, that's all I can tell you from my own experience. Good luck.
