Hello lovely people,
I am taking 2 grains of Nature-Throid and I still have all hypo symptoms. My lab results show that I am under-medicated.
However, I see that I have iodine deficiency as well. My follow up appt is on Monday. Do you think that I need to ask my doctor to increase my dose and start taking iodine ? Or just taking iodine will bring my numbers up? Because I have read that iodine helps thyroid to make hormones. I am afraid if I raise my NDT and take iodine at the same time, I will get hyper.
TSH 0.01 (0.40-4.50 mIU/L)
T3 REVERSE 13 (8-25 ng/dL)
FT3 3 (2.3-4.2 pg/mL)
FT4 0.8 (0.8-1.8 ng/dL)
IODINE, SERUM/PLASMA 44 (52-109 mcg/L)
Any ideas would be appreciated.
Thanks in advance.
P.S I do not have Hashimoto's as my anti bodies were within normal range.
