I was wondering if you could help me to figure out what's going on with
my temps. My last labs showed my thyroid numbers almost at the right
ranges. T3 slightly high even though. I was on 3 grains + 25mg T3. And my temps were
stable. Getting around 97.8 at mornings and 98.6 in the afternoon.
Even though I was getting a bit of hotness, choking, and kind of
breathless when extra moving.
So my Endo said I should stop taking T3
(since NDT already also contains T3. He likes NDT thks God), to lower
the high T3 and also lower to 2 grains + combined with 50 mg of T4
levothyroxine to raise a bit my stubborn T4. (He said this combination is
a good one for stubborn T4). However, after lowering all the dosages
explained above, and in despite my hotness, choking and breathless been
reduced drastically, my temps lowered abreast too. Now mornings temps lowered at 97.2 and afternoons at 97.4/97.6. So I thought if I add 12.5mg T3 my temps will start raising again. And they did!
So my QUESTION: am I raising my temps artificially? What if I wouldn't using T3 to raise it, they still will be low flat-out?
What do you think?
These were my latter labs:
Labs Collected: 05/11/2016 10:17 ( I was on 3 grains plus 25 mg of t3
by the time I took these labs, so since on May 2016 I dropped to 2
grains + t4 50mg of levoythyroxine and nothing of T3 to reduce the high
T3, FREE: 5.3 High 2.3-4.2 (pg/mL)
T4, FREE: 0.9 "normal" 0.8-1.8 (ng/dL)
So any thoughts? Ty in advance
