Hello. These are my results after 6 weeks taking 75 mcg of SYNTHROID. The before results are with no thyroid medication. I am male, 38 years old, 72 kg:
Before: 5,09 uUI/ml
After: 1,13 uUI/ml
Ref: 0,40 – 4,30
Before: 1,01 ng/dl 28,18 % in the range
After: 1,18 ng/dl 43,63 % in the range
Ref: 0,70 – 1,80 ng/dl
Before: 0,34 ng/dl 70% in the range
After: 0,32 ng/dl 60 % in the range
Ref: 0,20 – 0,40
Before: 264 mg/dl
After: 247 mg/dl
Before: 72 mg/dl
After: 59 mg/dl
Before: 158 mg/dl
After: 141 mg/dl
Before: 62 mg/dl
After: 36 mg/dl
So, whit 75 mcg of SYNTHROID, my TSH dropped a lot; my FreeT4 increased as expected, but my FreeT3 dropped, indicating a conversion problem and the need for T3??
Strange that my cholesterol doesn’t decreased as expected, and my triglycerides dropped a lot, I don’t know what this indicate.
Yesterday I tried 1 grain of NDT to my 75 mcg T4 dose. I divided the 1 grain in four parts and take it 4 times a day, and fells worse, more tired and depressed!!
Also, in this 6 weeks, my temperatures stayed the same: 35.9 Celsius at wake up, so the T4 did nothing for my low temperature.
The only improvement I see is that I fell more relaxed along the day, but the constipation, fatigue and pain on the joints of my legs persists.
So, what should I do:
1. Increase my dose to 100 mcg T4?
2. Ad T3, but How? It looks that I feel worse whit it.
Thank you very much for any help.
