I'm going to be going in again and was wondering if anyone had recommendations for what to get done on my blood work. I have Hashimotos and have been on 125 mcg of Levothyroxine for about two months now. I have the perfect amount of energy, no more drowsiness or brain fog and my hair has stopped falling out! The only issue I'm having is that I can't seem to lose any weight! I'm working out - a combination of HIIT, strength, and stretching. I take Selenium, multivitamin, and magnesium and eat fairly low carb, moderate healthy fats and protein, and don't eat things like muffins, white flour, candy, chocolates, etc. I even switched birth control to the copper IUD but am now having re-occurance of my PCOS and very heavy periods so I worry that I should go back on the pill or some type of hormone but I know my PCOS is also from the Hashis. Any tips would be much appreciated about supplements, blood work, switching up my medication, etc. Thank you!
Ok got my results back, maybe my Free t3 is still too high to see weight loss. It's free t3: 4.5 (range is 2.0-4.4), free t4: 1.60 (range is 0.8-1.6), tsh 0.840 (range is 0.45-5.40). Does this mean that I'm converting into t3 good and don't need to take t3?
