I have hypothyroidism with high TPO Abs. I'm on 50mcg levothyroxine a day.
I've just paid to have my thyroid hormones tested as I've never been tested for FT3 or rT3 before and these are my results:
THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE 0.274 mIU/L (0.270 - 4.200)
FREE THYROXINE 17.95 pmol/L (12.000 - 22.000)
FREE T3 4.76 pmol/L (3.100 - 6.800)
REVERSE T3 24 ng/dL (10.000 - 24.000)
As you can see my reverse T3 is right at the high end of the normal range. I would greatly appreciate opinion as to whether I should pursue possibly adding T3 to my regimen.
Many thanks in advance for any opinions on this.
