I am self-medicating with NDT (from Thailand) purchased on-line, as where I live they only prescribe T4. I had been on Armour for a number of years and then on T3 alone and then nothing for a year and had weight gain and other symptoms. These are my recent labs:
Glucose down from 116 to 107
HDL 62 (same)
LDL from 189 to 145
Cholesterol from 298 to 242
Triglycerides from 231 to 173
The fact is that my conventional doctor does not order anything but TSH but when it's low (and I gather it's REALLY low), the lab does the free T4 and free T3...
I must say, my morning temps came up from 96.8 (F) to now around 98.2.
And the metabolic syndrome has improved.
But is my TSH TOO low?
I have to meet with my doctor on Wednesday morning as she wants to discuss the blood work, so I'd appreciate any opinions you can offer.
Thanks in advance!
