So my TSH was 5.8 (range 0.4-4.5 uIu/mL)
Free T4. was 1.25 (range 0.82 - 1.77 ng/dL)
Free T3 was 1.5 (range 2.0-4.4 pg/mL)
Reverse T3 was 20.2 (range 9.2 -24.1 ng/dL)
My LDL and total cholesterol was very high and my free testosterone very low.
So after looking going to many doctors.. one finally said.. this is all related to my low T3.
He said my ratio from Free T3 to Reverse T3. was 7% and it should be higher than 20%.
He gave me 25mcg daily for a week of CYTOMEL. and asked me to take Temp in the morning.. and check my heart rate.
Second week I'm on 50mcg.. and today I check my temp in the morning and was 95.6 (which is low I believe.. ) I than took my 50mcg.. and an hour later it was 97.6.. still not in 80s.)
My resting heart rate.. is 60-64 bpm. not high like people report on T3.
Is it that my metabolism was on the bottom end and it still adjusting.. or will my doctor increase it to 75mcg.? I'm just concerned that I lose muscle since T3 is catabolic. Thanks
