I'm struggling with hypothyroidism since 3 years now and when finally discovered it is a thyroid due to low TSH (despite normal, mid-range T3/T4), supplementing T4 didn't resolve the issue completely. However, I observed the followings:
- Low TSH makes very ill during the day till noon. Afternoons, is when I feel better usually, that is the time of the day TSH start to rise slightly and peaks at night which is the time I feel the best.
- When TSH rose occasionally, due to skipping T4 and/or caffeine interference, I will get hyper like symptoms for one day or so! TSH rise for missing the usual dose of T4 but this also causes a lot of stored T4 to be converted to T3 causing hyper symptoms.
- The is some scientific evidence that the higher TSH, the higher the conversion will be:
So, this proves to me that Low TSH is causing my hypothyroidism, and I wonder what will be the best solution for low TSH? is it T3 supplement?
