I tested positive via the saliva test at Regenerus in August 2016. I am under an NHS specialist regarding my thyroid as I don't feel well even though my TSH was showing as 2.57 (0.27-4.20) in September 2016. The specialist was adamant that my Free T3 is fine because it's showing up as 3.75 (3.1-6.85). I didn't know enough about it to discuss it sensibly with him but I understand that the problem is that this faulty gene causes a deficiency of T3 within the cells even though a normal reading will show up via blood testing as in my case.
My Reverse T3 is high at 26.0 (10-24). I've been reading what Isabella Wentz has written about Reverse T3 and she says it should be as low as possible and that anything higher than 15 indicates a problem and one way to lower high levels of Reverse T3 is to get on T3 only medication.
Is there anyone with better knowledge of DIO2 who could comment, also anyone with better knowledge of Reverse T3 please.
Thanking you in anticipation of your help.
