Hi all, I was diagnosed by Dr Peatfield a year ago with low cortisol, DHEA and poor thyroid function - probably as a result of the adrenals.
I've been taking NAX 4 x daily for a year and T3 (20mcg) since July.
My latest thyroid results are:
TSH 0.06 (0.25-5)
Free T4 - 8.51 (10-22)
T4 - 57.2 (58-130)
T3 - 1.0 (0.9-2.4)
Free T3 - 6.65 (2.6-6.8)
Does anyone know what they mean in terms of any changes I should make? Should I be trying to get off the T3 and substitute it for T4 or trying nutri-thyroid instead (it gave me chest pains last year). My heart rate can be as low as 58 without T3, but is currently around 72. Does having low TSH mean that my thyroid might not function on its own in future or could I be over-medicating?
I live in Kenya and don't have access to any good endos. I buy the T3 otc.
