Hi - I wonder if someone could advise me please?
I started T3 a few months ago - I was on 75mcg of levothyroxine which I upped to 100mgc after my April results showed I could do with an increase. After about a week I got my T3 and lowered my T4 to 50mcg of Levothyroxine and added 12 & 1/2 mcg of T3 which I've been taking ever since. (I know my current combo is not the equivalent of 100 T4 but it's more than the 75mcg if that makes sense - about 87 & 1/2mcg).
My new results don't show much improvement. TSH and T4 down and T3 about the same.
Should I increase my T3 or T4 or both or neither? I feel pretty good but still could do with a little more energy & still no sign of any weight loss.
Here are the results:
