I had my first blood test 2 months ago, where my TSH was on the high side, but my FT4 and FT3 were on the low side. The doctors insisted that my readings were "normal". I tested again 1 month ago for TSH only (as the Endo absolutely insisted that FT4 and FT3 are not useful measures)
and my TSH came down to 1.9. Ive just tested again (same lab) under my own initiative and all my readings now appear to be approaching optimal. TSH=1.7, FT4=3.4, FT3=10.6. However, in some respects, I'm feeling worst than I was 2 months ago.
I have NDT on order, but its still stuck in customs. Ive fine tuned my lifestyle: stopped smoking, alcohol, refined carbohydrates, increased fruut and veg and been supplementing with licquorice...
Im baffled as to why my thyroid values have changed so much, but Im still feeling awful! My basal and average temperature are still around the 36.6°c mark (low), but the doctors brush this off as "normal". I have TPO and Tg antibodies of about 20 (low)
I'm now wondering as to whether I might have a T4/T3 conversion problem or a T3 uptake problem... Anyone know how I can determine this?
Love to you all!
