I have posted here before but in short....I developed symptoms of hypothyroidism after a very stressful period last year. All of my labs are within range but my doctor has agreed to a trial of T3. I am now on 180 mcg compounded T3 and there have been no positive changes. My main concern is myxedema, but also loss of muscle mass, fatigue, hair loss, poor memory and a bunch of others. I have read that once one is resistant to thyroid hormone it is hard to overcome.
I had an adrenal test done last year and urine and blood showed high cortisol, however saliva was all within range. My Vit D is suboptimal but I am taking 5000 IU per day (it is 75) and ferretin is 23 but am also supplementing with iron.
Does anyone have any insight into this?
Am I making the resistance worse by taking this dose?
