As ranges vary from lab to lab, it's essential to have the range that comes with your own results for interpretation and anyone to comment. Ask your surgery for a print out and ensure the reference ranges are included.

I was on a combination for 2 years but gradually under medicated symptoms returned with a high RT3 result. I have been T3 only since May and still working on getting the dose right. I have thought about adding T4 back but if it wont convert it could be a waste of time. What made you decide Susiebow?
