Hello for everyone in this very helpful forum! I need your advice,or conformation if I am doing the right way.
Didn't post for long time! ,was busy reading, and experimenting with T3. By forum recommendation ,started slowly increasing T3 by 2.5 mcg in the morning and 2.5 mcg late afternoon every 10 days. Right now I am on 1 grain NDT(Erfa thyroid) and 30 mcg
Cytomel. After 11 weeks I had blood test done: FreeT4 = 0.94 ng/dl (0.82-1.77)
FreeT3 =5.6 (2.0-4.4) pg/ml it's HIGH
Reverse T3 = 15.9 ng/dl still elevated previous test RT3 was 18.9
Thyroid antibodies : (TPO)Ab =9 IU/ml ( 0-34)
Thyroglobulin antibody.= <1 IU/ml (0.0-0.9)
Selenium,blood =284 ug/l ( 100-340)
Now I confirmed ,that I do not converting T4 to T3! Even taking NDT for many yrs.
And I am glad to add T3 to my routine... I lost 3 kilo during this time, my Holesterol
First time for 10 yrs dropped from 267 to 205 ! It's makes me very happy!
My next step is to reduce my NDT to 1/2 grain( 30 mg) due to not converting and reduce my Cytomel from30 mcg to 25 mcg. To make my T3 optimal and to reduce RT3.
My current suplement: vitD3-5000u,vit K2, Crill oil,B12, Bcomplex,Magnesium, trace minerals, turmeric ,milk thistle seed,selenium with vit.E.black strap molasses , Astragalus( for high morning cortisol) keep as much as possible 2 hour between meals and thyroid meds and 4 hours between thyroid meds and Mg,iron,vit D3. Loosing a lot of hair!!
Very grateful for Any advice !
