Finally took my first dose of t3 last night!!!
For the last 3 weeks I had been alternating 100/125 Levo due to slightly low T4 and high TSH. The following results came back from Blue Horizon which I was surprised about because the test I did for them was a freebie because they are trialing the new spot test and wanted a comparison, so I didn't expect to get any results back so just took the test any old how, ie. 1.45pm after food and only about 12hrs after my meds the night before.
FT4 27.61 (12-22) - prev result 14.77 (7th June)
TSH 1.77 (0.27-4.20) - prev result 15.70 (7th June)
FT3 3.86 (3.1-6.8) - prev result 2.41 (7th June)
Anti-Thyroidperoxidase abs H 410.2 <34 kIU/L - prev result 411.9 (7th June)
Anti-Thyroglobulin Abs H 272.4 <115 kU/L - prev result 260.3 (7th June)
I was surprised to see such a big drop in my TSH and also a high FT4. I ran the results over with Clutter and Goosey asking how accurate they would have been considering the time I had done the test.
Anyway, have dropped my Levo to 100mcg and added 5mcg T3 last night. Can't believe I finally took some T3.
As regards my adrenals I have to get the highs down which I strongly believe are giving me most of the anxiety and nausea as soon as I awake to late afternoon when the symptoms subside. Had been taking Holy Basil for a while but didn't feel it was helping so stopped...maybe I shouldn't have done that so starting it again.
Also haven't had a saliva test since March and have another one here to do but I keep putting it off because it involves getting up early (which is my worst time) and it also makes my day longer with the symptoms, which are debilitating enough
