Me again....complaining about my myxedema and WHY it is not shifting. I recently saw a friend and they commented "wow, you look so different". Not a good sign. I am on 270 mcg T3 only now for five months. I thought perhaps it was not being absorbed so I tested RT3 and free T3 and of course T3 is high and RT3 is below range. I also have low ferretin (23) and low cortisol in the am and noon (saliva). Could this be why or is there another explanation that NOTHING is shifting this. I am getting desperate. Have read some people do respond well to NAC to break up the mucin deposits. Any thoughts? Much appreciated.
