I hope you are well and if anyone has read my posts with results before then I would really appreciate some more advice. Thanks you
Now on t4 87.5mcg taken with 5mcg t3 in the morning well away from breakfast at around 5.30 am and another 2.5mcg of t3 after lunch at approx 1pm. My t3 level has been slowly improving as before any t3 was level of 3.6 bottom of range and after starting on t3 up to 5mcg was a level of 4.3 pcol tested 6 weeks ago I then went up to 7mcg but the nhs didn't get my t3 this time (previously I've tested privately) but I have got back today my tsh and free t4 result. My tsh is 0.94 range is 0.35 to 5 and t4 is 12.8 range is 9 to 24.
A few symptoms have crept back over the last few weeks which I believe is down to my gradually decreasing t4 level which I know is due to taking t3!! I just think I work better at a mid range level! Weight creeping up! Constipation back and insomnia recently horrendous again when at the start of t3 it started to get better and I thought I had cured the constipation.
Last night i decided to just take my 87.5mcg t4 at night away from t3 after dinner and I slept well but I also took some melatonin. I thought maybe I should increase my t4 to 100 after dinner and keep my t3 as it is in the morning and day but try and bring my t4 levels up a bit more. I know this might decrease my tsh even further but I'm hoping the after dinner routine will help slew and increasing the dose might improve my symptoms!
Any advice please and thank you!! Without the guidance I have received here I would
Never have tried t3 and I do believe it's helped I just think I'm still balancing things and it takes time.
