I'm new here and was wondering if someone could help me with my labs! I feel so hypo and fatigued and not sure I can cope feeling like this much longer. I am on 50 Thyroxin but just convinced my doctor to try some Cytomel even though she said my labs are perfect.
I don't think I am converting T4 to T3 but I don't know how to dose, she said cut the Thyroxin down to 3 days a week and take 20mcg of Cytomel every monring. Everything Ive read says this is the wrong way to do it.
TSH: 1.4 down from 5
FT4: 21.1 (8.2-22) up from 16
FT3: 4 (2-7) this is the first time it has been run
RT3: 468 (140-540)
I was thinking of cutting Thyroxin down to 35mcg every day and starting 5 mcg * twice daily of Cytomel.
Also, when I look at my T3/RT3 ration it indicates I am just pooling the T3. Does that mean I should stop the T4 and just take T3? Wont the T4 drop down again if I just take T3?
Thank you so much.
