Hi, I've been reading a little while and am dead impressed with the knowledge here. I'm not really sure of my next steps and I was wondering what you all recommended.
I've been working with a nutritionist to try and lose weight /have more energy and after getting nowhere with dieting, she sent me for some blood tests which clearly show I have very little T3 and an adequate amount of T4. She thinks I have a conversion problem and has given me a bunch of supplements. Which, are making me feel a bit better but still not amazing. Numbers below
Thyroid Function Tests
Free T4 (15.2 11 - 26 pmol/L
TSH 1.78( 0.35 - 4.5 uU/mL
Free T3 3.7(3.9 - 6.8 pmol/L )▼
Thy. Peroxidase abs. <10 (0 - 50 IU/mL)
For reference, I've been gluten +dairy free since Feb. I'm tired, so tired, have digestive issues, am dessicated like a lizard, my head is foggy, I can't remember stuff and I have a spare tire /Weight around the middle. And I am puffy like the michelin man. What a catch I am. Oh and my doctor says I have health anxiety and recommends counselling.
