I have Hashi's and introduced T3 to my T4 about 2 months ago. Originally on 112.5mcg T4, now on 50mcg T4 and 15mcg of T3. Doctor just phoned with the above so don't have all the ranges yet but will pick up and post tomorrow.
My question is, why is my TSH suppressed when my T4 is low and T3 in the middle? I know that TSH is suppressed when taking T3, but the T3 level isn't that high either, so wondered why the pituitary wasn't busier.
6 months ago my TSH was up as high as 44 so the pituitary seems to be working okay but i did have high antibodies a year before that up to 1100.
If the thyroid is now defunct, does that mean TSH will always be low. Does the pituitary know the thyroid is dead?
I know life with Hashi's isn't simple, but does anyone know what is going on.
