I have never understood this but if your thyroid has never work (born with partial gland) and the only way you could function was taking T4 and now combination of T4 and T3, then surely one I would naturally have antibodies and secondly, I am always going to have a suppressed reading surely? Also found out that I am not diabetic after all but very anaemic, having to take folic acid as well as iron supplement and B12 jab and vitamin D supplements. Currently taking 200mcg of T4 and 20 mcg of T3.
My latest readings are: T3 = 3.9 (3.1-6.8), T4 = 17.6 (12-22). I think the suppressed reading (forgot to write it down) was 0.09. I know it was low.
Can someone explain to mean what the reading should be for natural hormone before supplementing, especially if you haven't got a working thyroid.
Thanks in advance
