my pulse is low 60's most of the time

does raise to 80 when i eat or with activity

last week it was at 80 at rest

50mcg T3 split in 2 doses (30mcg and 20mcg)

im thinking maybe adding another 10mcg to my second dose

normally my heart races when i need an increase

rememeber i was on 62.5mcg tiromel and endo put me on 40mcg liothyronine

im cold one minute and sweating the next

zero energy

In my completely unqualified opinion based on nothing more than personal experience, if it was me I'd assume I needed an increase. When hypo I also get palpitations/racing heart, but generally heart rate is low. Unless you're a superfit athlete this seems like a low pulse. Also the difficulty feeling comfortable (hot and cold) is a hypo symptom for me.

You can always try a little more t3 for second dose and see how you feel. How are you sleeping?


thank you

im far from athletic so deffinatly a hypo thing there

i think ill go for a 10mcg increase because im used to T3 anyway

my sleeping as actually gone down hill lately, i take 1mg melatonin a night or id be laying there all night, might try 1 1/2 melatonin as 2 made me feel awfull last time i tried
