I have always had a low t4 and also t3. Been through years of investigations and blood tests and even had the thyroid mafia dr's trying to say I didn't need 'any' thyroid meds and they were responsible for my abnormal alp's etc. They kept me off it for 5 months, whilst I really suffered. Also been though Dr Peatfield and the low cortisol problem - which was dealt with. Anyway been back on 20mcg T3 and 25mcg Thyroxine a day. Now for the past 5-6 months. Still feel tired and my recent blood tests were. tsh 0.02 (range 0.35 -5.5 and t4 9.0 (range 9.0- 24). What I want to ask is: do I need to increase my t3 or t4 . I have been trying to do a bit more exercise of late and wondered if that may be increasing my need for a bit more of something
Thanks you ..
