I'm pretty sure I have sex hormone imbalances (most likely eostrogen dominant) since having my mirena coil removed 14 months ago. Pending test results may confirm. Blood results show I have good TSH and T4 but my free T3 is low. I am also very symptomatic of low thyroid (terrible fluid retention, myxodema, weight gain, depression, dry skin, brittle and thinning hair). So I have summised that I must have a conversion issue. I'd like to try T3 treatment and would like to know if anyone else has experienced this. Would T3 treatment make my thyroid lazy in producing its own hormone? Should I even care about this when my life is miserable due to the above symptoms? Anyone else had this fall out from the Mirena coil? Thanks
