Is T3 at 1.7 nmol/L good or bad?...thanks - see lab range below

It says that the lab range is 1.3 - 3.1 nmol/L on the sheet and I m 1.7. I am back on levo as thyroid gold wasn't really working for me or I was0nt taking enough of it?...My TSH was 6.1 this time......but just wondering is the 1.7 at all relevant and do i need more T3?

Thanks for any input by the way .

  • 1.7 is lowish in range but may be due to your elevated TSH.

    I think Thyroid Gold is a supplement and not thyroid hormone replacement. If you've only just started Levothyroxine you need to give it 6 weeks before testing again to see if your TSH has dropped and FT3 has risen or whether you need to increase the dose.

  • This link clearly implies that it does indeed contain thyroid hormones and asks some questions about other products:
