T3 conversion issue


I have recently been diagnosed with Hypothyroidism. The issue is with T4-3 conversion, my tests showed thyroxine (T4) levels are ok. I have been seeing Dr Peatfield but find him a bit elusive and the nutri thyroid and adrenal supplements are doing nothing for me. He said the conversion issue with T4-T3 is due to an adrenal issue. I wondered if the next step would be also taking Armour medication as it contains T3 but I don't know if the T4 in it is necessary if these levels are ok? Any suggestions? I don't want to take cortisone either for the adrenals so I'm patiently waiting to hear back from Dr P.

It will help members to advise if you can post your recent thyroid results with the lab ref ranges (the figures in brackets after your results) and say how long you have been following Dr. P's protocol.
