My first post after browsing for a long time (great site) and learning a lot but not enough to interpret my test results!
I Have Hashimotos and been self medicating on Armour for some years but seem to be struggling recently so back to the GP after a very long gap. At least she did agree to test for T3. Discussing the results with her she was only interested in the TSH of course and said it was too low - but I expected this. I noticed though that my T4 was at the bottom of the range:
TSH 0.16 - range 0.3 to 5.6
T4 7.9 - range 7.8 to 14.4
T3 5.2 - range 3.9 to 6.2
This is on one and half grains. I didn't take any Armour 24 hours before test (have been taking it at 4am for some months now). After an intense period of work after this test, with a subsequent dip I went up to two grains and felt a bit better but now feel slightly overmedicated...
Any comments from the wise would be greatly appreciated.
Have asked GP for B12 etc tests but she is insisting that I go through my diabetes (type two) review first, which is a bit of a farce as my blood sugars normalised when I went on to Armour some years ago!
Many thanks in advance,
