Does anyone know if there is a spreadsheet or chart that shows weight against how much T4 or T3 one should take? I know it's all individual but I'm looking for something to work on. Basically my T3 levels are stuck at 4.8 and I would like to adjust the meds in order to find that sweet spot of medication....I'm feeling rough and under medicated.
Or maybe I could tinker with levels and create my own spreadsheet..hmm there's a thought.
I'm prescribed 125mcg T4 and 10mcg T3 but I add 15mcg to the T3 and take all thyroid meds before bed.
Latest results (01/02/17) show TSH 0.03 <0.34-5.6> FT4 11.10 <7.5-21.1> and FT3 4.8 <3.8-6.8>
Dec 16 was TSH 0.30 <0.34-5.6> FT4 13.00 <7.5-21.1> and FT3 4.8 <3.8-6.8>
Returning symptoms are chronic hives/itching, hairloss, painful sore scalp with itching and sometimes lumps! Dry skin on legs and feet, gained half a stone, temps dropped to 96.4, pulse up at 85.
I don't covert T4 well, DIO2 decreased ability of the enzyme to generate the active T3 hormone. Wondering if I should ditch the T4 for 3 months, raise T3 and see how I feel?
