I've been gradually increasing dose of T4 from 75 - 100 mcg after being diagnosed with Hashimoto's a few months ago. After my last lab work, for the first time, I measured my Reverse T3, and it was 19 (ref range of 8-25). Does a Reverse T3 in the upper-mid portion of the range suggest that I am having conversion issues? In other words, for Reverse T3, is conversion typically good as long as we fall within the stanard lab ranges, or should I be shooting to have this number at the lower end of the reference range?
