I am under an Endocrinologist for my Hashimotos Hypothyroidism and I have been taking Liothyronine (T3) for 2 months which is amazing. I take the following medication:
Day 1 - Levothyroxine 25mcg and Liothyronine 20mcg in the morning, Levothyroxine 25mcg in the evening
Day 2 - Liothyronine 20mcg in the morning, Levothyroxine 25mcg in the evening
Day 3 - same as day 1
Day 4 - same as day 2
And so on with alternate days. This has been done because when I took Levothyroxine twice a day every day I had heart palpitations but this new regime is working well.
I had a blood test 9/5/16 on a morning when I had taken the Liothyronine and Levothyroxine 2 hours before my blood test and got the following results:
T4 - 7.2 (range 12 - 22)
T3 - 8 (range 3.1 - 6.8)
TSH - 0.5 (range 0.3 - 4.2)
On 20/6/16 I had another blood test and I didn't take any medication that morning and got the following results:
T4 - 6.2
T3 - 4.6
TSH - 6.3
My GP says I'm under medicated but I have no symptoms and comparing my previous results when I took my meds and this result when I didn't take any I would have said that it's because I had nothing in my system and if I was to do another blood test after taking my meds it would show are ok again and no under medicated. Any thoughts?
