I'm sure I've read before that when on T3 the TSH levels should be ignored? Is that correct? My daughter has been on T3 for approx. a year following RAI and was picking up pretty well. Unfortunately her endo moved (no idea where to else we would follow him!) and she is now being treated elsewhere. They reduced her T3 and added T4 and she is much worse than before. A recent blood test shows her T3 level as elevated (much higher than it was). I'm going with her for next apt next week to challenge their treatment, but I don't take T3 myself and am hazy about what I should be looking for/ignorning. can anyone point me to info about this? I did buy Paul's book but my dear brother has lost it and although I will probably give in and buy another, it's unlikely to be here before her apt early next week. any pointers gratefully received
