I was diagnosed with low t3 syndrom last year, probably due tu asthma chronic inflammation and gerd.
Normal TSH and ft4 but very low T3. Now I am on the combo t4/t3 and feeling ok and my asthma and gerd completely under control. Interestingly enough, it is always my total t3 that is on the lower borderline, free T3 is always in the middle or upper half. In general i feel well without any major symptoms except high lipids (chol. 5.9, ldl 4.2)
My endo suggested this is not a true hypothyroidism but an adaptation mechanism. A low dose of t3 has really helped much. He also suggested to take CoQ10.
I've been reading that when you're hypo you have too much CoQ10, but when you're hyper you are lacking in it. So being hypo I'm afraid to take it and have too much.
Any ideas, experience or opinions?
