I have been emailing my endo and he is going to ring me today. Please can someone advise me as to what they think Below are my results after and before starting T3. When I first started it I felt absolutely fantastic. However, now I am very up and down.
Results after 6 weeks on T3 (did not take any T3 that morning - 21 May at 9.30am) are as follows:
TSH 0.01 ( 0.35 - 5.50 mU/L)
T4 13.2 (10.50 - 20.00 pmoml/L)
T3 4.80 (3.50 - 6.50 pmol/L)
This is on 20 mcg a day T3 (3 times a day) and 100 mcg T4
Results last time before starting T3 were:
I felt quite well again when I increased the dose of T3 to 20mcg a day and decreased the T4 to 100mcg a day, but then after a few days (about 10) I started to feel very tired and washed out again, no energy and lost my confidence. I seem to be very up and down with how I feel and symptoms.
My doctor asked to see me the other day and as I was waiting to hear from the endo and felt unwell, she increased my T3 to 30mcg a day with the T4 staying at 100mcg a day. I have not told the endo this as I don't think he would like it. I have been on 30mcg for approx. a week but still do not feel any better.
I had an email from my endo who said "Your thyroid hormone levels themselves are okay and your TSH is below normal so in fact you are taking a wee bit too much of one or other of them. Probably the T3. These symptoms are most likely not due to your thyroid therefore."
Please, please can someone tell me what they think, as I am more confused than ever now and I need to know what to say when he rings me!
