Thank you Paul, that information is very useful.
I couldn't even get my private doctor to do reverse T3 tests so I know my NHS GP would really flip out on that one! I wish GPs would run a full panel of tests when patients first appear with hypo symptoms rather than doing bare minimum of TSH or TSH and Ferriten etc.
I just find it interesting that from when I was first diagnosed (results in the first post from me) to where I am now TSH 0.07 (0.3 to 4.5), T3 free 3.64 (2.1 to 4.2), T4 free 0.86 (0.7 to 1.8) .
My free T3 results are about the same and I think my free T4 is about the same - the TSH is now dropped down to about 0.04. And I have not had any improvement in my symptoms - particularly re hair loss - despite have had 7 years of treatment on 3..5 grains of armour and now 125mg of T4 and 40mg of T3. So either the treatment doesn't work for me or the tests are useless at showing what is really going on physiologically.
I am trying the CT3M method as previously discussed with you to see if that makes a difference but bottom line is my results and my symptoms show little sign of improvement despite years of quite high medication. So I guess what I am thinking is that either the tests are useless or the medication is - if that makes sense!!!
