Hi, I've been on medication, forums, meds for about 2 years now and it's been impossible to lose weight. At first I just educated myself of treating me right to get the right thyroid numbers, adrenal healing, and others but today in spite my numbers I am still not losing weight. So what is going on?
These are my last labs:
Labs Collected: 05/11/2016 10:17
T3, FREE: 5.3 High 2.3-4.2 (pg/mL)
T4, FREE: 0.9 "normal" 0.8-1.8 (ng/dL)
TESTOSTERONE, TOTAL, MALES (ADULT), IA: 881 H 250-827 (ng/dL) (I've been taking testosterone since it was pretty low the last time. So know I dropped from 1 ml to 0.8ml to get the right numbers).
(So according with my Dr. and ppl from forums I am almost near to the right numbers. I was on 3 grains plus 25 mg of t3 by the time I took these labs, so I dropped to 2 grains + t4 50mg of levoythyroxine and nothing of T3 to reduce the high T3 since my NDT already have T3 in it. Now I think my T4 "must" be higher than this and my T3 near to the top. )
I am even not pooling (according with other forums).
Labs Collected: 12/09/2015 09:31
T3 REVERSE= <5 Low 8-25 (ng/dL)
T3, FREE= 2.4 Low but on range 2.3-4.2 (pg/mL)
Labs Collected: 05/03/2016 09:34 =
*THYROGLOBULIN ANTIBODIES: 26 high range: < or = 1 IU/mL
*THYROID PEROXIDASE ANTIBODIES: 36 High. range: <9 (IU/mL)
(In this one I started recently "one week ago" to take Low Dose Naltrexone 2.5 mg and planning to raise to 4 mg, since I've been on paleo diet for more than 8 months and antibodies only dropped 20, so I ASSUME it is because sometime else since I am not neither celiac nor gluten sensitive even though I am skipping all the gluten just to see if I could lose some weight. But nothing).
I got some positive bands of LYME but my infectious disease specialist assured me I didn't have LYME since it is been needed at least 5 linked bands and I didn't have them. So she even didn't give me any medicine. However, I did buy this MMS protocl (miracle mineral supplement) and finished the 1000 protocol since it's been said to clean the body from lyme and others "just in case".
My insulin is ok too. I am not diabetic and my numbers are good.
My iron is good too:
IRON AND TOTAL IBC
IRON TOTAL = 124 50-180 mcg/dL
IRON BINDING CAPACITY= 302 250-425 mcg/dL
%SATURATION= 41 15-60 % (calc)
FERRITIN = 81 20-380 (ng/mL)
DHEA SULFATE= 122 70-495 (mcg/dL)
CORTISOL (BLOOD TESTING)= 5.3
Reference Range: For 8 a.m.(7-9 a.m.) Specimen: 4.0-22.0
Reference Range: For 4 p.m.(3-5 p.m.) Specimen: 3.0-17.0
Aldosterone, LC/MS/MS: 2
Upright 8:00 - 10:00 am < or = 28 ng/dL
Upright 4:00 - 6:00 pm < or = 21 ng/dL
Supine 8:00 - 10:00 am 3 - 16 ng/dL
(my aldosterone is been low so I've been taking licorice root for this one every time and on).

My cortisol is ok, even though it was about blood work:
CORTISOL, TOTAL = 8.9 mcg/dL (blood test)
(I've been on the adrenal cocktail for most than 1 years and half. After this bloodwork my numbers were like low in the morning and high in the afternoon but I feel this have changed now.)
Even my labs that I consider they are almost ok though today my temps were 97.2 in the am. and 98 around 3 pm. So I wonder what I am doing wrong? Is it because I dropped my NDT to only 2 grains? is it because I am not taking T3? Is this the reason why I am not losing weight?
Any thoughts would be highly appreciate it. Thank you in advance.
