When the bloods were taken I was on 2 grains of NDT and still feeling very symptomatic. I added 25mcg of T3 the last two days and I am actually starting to feel better for it.
I am now thinking of reducing to 1 grain of NDT and keeping the addition of the 25mcg of T3 as I seem to feel better on it than just the NDT.
From the most recent results I think its safe to say I do not have Hashimotos?
My Iron and Vit D B12 are still on the low side- could this be why I still do not feel optimal or could I be overdosing and going Hyper?
All thoughts would be greatly appreciated!
NOTES FRON BH:
The combination of low TSH and free T4 levels, with a normal T3 level, would be unsurprising if you are taking T3 form of thyroxine - is this the case? If so, it might be a good idea to discuss your ongoing thyroid medication dose requirement with your usual doctor. If not, and you were unaware of any thyroid problem, the low TSH level might indicate a developing hyperthyroid (overactive thyroid) state, or (with the low free T4 level too) even pituitary gland underactivity. Again, discussion with your doctor would be wise if this is the case.
